A crucial monthly consultation meeting for the Noyyal Trust, focussing on the rejuvenation of the Noyyal river, a major water source of the Kongu region, was held at the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore today, December 18.
Perur Aadheenam Thavathiru Maruthasala Adigalar presided over the meeting organized on behalf of the Noyyal River Foundation. Siravai Aadheenam Thavathiru Kumaragurupara Swami, President of the Siruthuli Foundation, Mrs. Vanitha Mohan, Mr. Ajay Chaitanya of Chinmaya Mission, Swami Vedananda of Akhila Bharatiya Sannyasins Sangha, Isha Outreach – Cauvery Calling Movement representative Mr. Valluvan, and many others participated.
During the meeting, foundation members discussed issues such as ensuring a permanent water supply in the Noyyal River, maintaining the river’s cleanliness without sewage contamination, and preventing the accumulation of plastic waste. To secure the water supply of the river, the Cauvery Calling Movement has set a target of planting 2 crore trees in the next 5 years in the Noyyal River basin, covering the four districts where the river flows. It is noteworthy that, so far, 10 lakh saplings have been planted by farmers on their lands with the support of Isha Outreach- Cauvery Calling.
This initiative is a result of joint efforts by various organizations, including the Tamil Nadu government, coming together for the rejuvenation of the Noyyal River. The implementation of this project in the Noyyal River, which spans about 180 km, has been assigned to different NGOs for specific kilometers. Accordingly, Isha has been assigned the first 4 km.
