The Satsang Foundation partnered with Tarun Bharat Sangh to give its members a thorough understanding of river revival and rejuvenation through the case study of the revived Sherni-Parbati rivers in Karauli, Rajasthan. This on-site, three-day conference was an enriching learning experience where members interacted with villagers and communities who had suffered through the adverse socio-economic effects of water scarcity. They saw the results of community participation and ownership in the revival of the Sherni-Parbati rivers of the Chambal Valley. The site is a living testimony to the transformation of a nomadic, violent society to a settled, peaceful and prosperous one. The participants were guided by Dr. Rajendra Singh. The event was graced by the Ambassador of Bosnia, Muhammad Sengick and the Director, Namami Gange, Dr. Ashok Kumar. The conference was attended by social activists from Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan.
