‘Story of Kaveri’ wins 8 new Awards

June 12, 2018

Mysuru: ‘The Story of Kaveri (and every river, everywhere),’ a short film initiated by Cycle Pure Agarbathies, and created by Reforest India, has won seven elephants and one black elephant award at the Kyoorius Awards-2018 held recently at The Dome, NSCI, Mumbai. The awards were handed over by Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.  

‘The Story of Kaveri’ has charmed audiences across the country, winning a total of 15 awards both nationally and internationally. The short film has been critically acclaimed for its creative approach and impeccable timing.

The film addresses the alarming problem of water scarcity in the Kaveri and gives a local solution to this crisis with a hard-hitting message.

Reforest India hoped to use the film as a catalyst to a successful rehabilitation of River Kaveri (Cauvery). Reforest India intends on doing this through their “plant one tree at a time” initiative. They have successfully planted and preserved over 60,000 trees and continues to seek out co-operation and donations to the cause.

The film narrative brings to life an Indian mythological tale of a demon, who created drought and wrought water wars. The people dying of thirst are saved by a Mother Goddess who descends on earth in the form of a river. The story, like the state of the river in today’s times, takes an ugly dystopian turn and portrays the futility of fighting over a dying river.
