Cauvery river is the lifeline of Bengaluru’s economy. Before Cauvery, it was Arkavathi. Running dry and polluted for almost half a century, Arkavathi is biologically dead. It stands as living proof of what is to come for Cauvery, if not already. A victim of urban-industrial society, Arkavathi today is a shadowy semblance of a former glorious river. It is a ghost river.
