Hai pase (The River)

We began our civilisation around 2600 BCE in parts of what are now india and pakistan.
Civilizations tended to grow up in river valleys for a number of reasons. The most obvious is
access to a usually reliable source of water for agriculture and human needs. Plentiful water,
and the enrichment of the soil due to annual floods, made it possible to grow excess crops
beyond what was needed to sustain an agricultural village. This allowed for some members of
the community to engage in non-agricultural activities such as construction of buildings and
cities in the name of devlopment.
Due to hectic population increase and drinking water consumption, decreased rainfall, the ‘water
problem’ in India is becoming a major threat. Particularly, water pollution, poor sanitation,
dwindling/decrease in rainfall, groundwater levels and water scarcity designs the world’s
second most populous nation. Water is most essential for livelihoods, agriculture, energy
production, industrial development and for several other potential consumptions. In India, ‘water
problems’ arise mainly due to poor management, negligence, in appropriate technology and
poor responsibility by the peoples and needed to be taken special precautionary measures.
This film revolves around an aadiwasi boy from jharkhand who wish to eat fish and today's condition of rivers.
Save river save life.
