[edit]

certainly there are advantages and disadvantages to building a dam, and a government would not embark on such a large scale project through only corruption. i need more evidence to substantiate the claims made. hardkorn 01:57, 24 October 2005 (UTC)hardkorn

I have just added photo (from "Geography of India" wiki page) and the link to the aforementioned page. IMO now this page looks a bit more lively. --Volphy 19:48, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

I have removed a part of sentence " led by ....Narendra Modi.." because there is no need to add a political POV here.Bharatveer 09:10, 1 May 2006 (UTC) yoh what is up!!!


I think we should include only geographical and cultural aspects of the river. more over mridul's added section as well as other are lacking in citation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.162.83.145 (talk) 17:11, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Total revision of the article[edit]

This article needs substantial revision in view of lot of developments which have taken place in the basin. Mridul's article needs to be subsumed in the main article since no names of authors are to included in the main article as part of Wikipedia policy. Can I totally change the presenation of this article, but of course suitably incorporating the material which is already presented till date? While in Govt. service, I have been involved for long years with the development of the basin as also the controversy (was in the thick of it in the 90s) which plagued the Saradar Sarovar Project for several years (fortunatley it has been resolved by the Supreme Court judgement now and the project is progressing satisfactorily). As regards including extent of information in the article, it should be be comprehesive as a basin which is an integral part of the river.Ys --Nvvchar (talk) 10:17, 26 January 2008 (UTC)


Revision required[edit]

Agree, this article looks more like a someone personal bulletin board —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kedar Borhade (talkcontribs) 10:59, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Narmada River Development[edit]

There is so much information on this one aspect of the river; it reads almost like a brochure for the project. Perhaps it would be an idea to include a paragraph in this article, and move the rest of the information to a separate page dealing just with the development?

Narmada Parikrama - Great way! -[edit]

Narmada Parikrama is one of the oldest tradition - almost 7000 years back Markandeya Rishi performed Narmada Parikrama. You will perhaps not believe that Markandeya Rishi performed Great Prakrima of Narmada River for 27 years. He did not cross stream of Narmada River also he did not crossed stream of any river - in all 999 rivers - merging Narmada. I have lot of information on this subject because I am one of lucky person, I could perform Narmada Parikrama covering 2700 kilometers of distance on foot. I have written a book 'Narmade Har | Har Narmade' detailing account of Narmada Parikrama which concluded in 123 days. Yes, This book is in Marathi language.This book hard/soft copy is available on bookganga.com

Reference to the recent study by NEUSS has been added. This is a thorough study of the Sanskrit sources, and a first class piece of research.--Shirazibustan (talk) 12:59, 30 March 2013 (UTC)Shirazibustan

Public Domain ~1916 image of pilgrims at river[edit]

If anyone wants it, there's a PD image entitled Pilgrims carrying water of the river Nerbudda in this book: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/22010/22010-h/22010-h.htm MatthewVanitas (talk) 00:51, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Bhimbetka caves.[edit]

These caves are not really part of the Narmada river valley. They are in the hills high above the valley proper. The caves rightly have their own article. Somebody coming here to read a general encyclopedia article on the Narmada is not really going to gain much from knowing the caves are nearby. It therefore seems appropriate to remove this material and focus instead on the anthroplogical data from the valley itslef. Comments? --Shirazibustan (talk) 12:57, 30 March 2013 (UTC)Shirazibustan
