To support Rally For Rivers myself with my family visited the two rivers in district Wardha  of Maharashtra , India. First at Wunna  or called as Vena in Hinganghat taluka and another is Dham river in Paunar on 10th September  2017. One can proudly say that India is a land of many rivers , but when we talk about the Rivers, first came in mind is River Ganga , a holy River Ganga , The mother Ganga . Alaknanda which starts from Gomukh caves in the Gangotri Glacier till Devprayag and turns Mandakini in Rudra Prayag.River Bhagirath enters at Har Ki Pauri in Haridwar. The confluence (संगम , Sangam) of Bhagirathi River and Alaknanda River at DevPrayag , is the begining of river Ganga. sangam - ganga When in particular about Wardha district, there are eight rivers flowing and they are:
  1. Wardha River
  2. Vena / Wunna River
  3. Dham River
  4. Pothra River
  5. Bor River
  6. Asoda River
  7. Bakli River
  8. Kar River
WARDHA RIVER: This river enters the district Wardha at village Salora , which rises from Multai plateau of Satpuda , flowing through western part of District Nagpur and finally enters the district Chandrapur. Vena/ Wunna : The wunna is the main tributary (सहायक नदी) of wardha river.It rises near the Mahadagad hills in Nagpur.It passes besides the Hinganghat town.A land mark can be seen as Wardha – Chandrapur railway bridge passes over it.   Dham River: The river Dham rises from the Dhaga reserve forest and jouning the Bor River.The landmark on this river is Road over bridge from Wardha to Nagpur. Secondly , there is Vinoba Bhave ‘s ashram which is also known as Paunar Ashram. Also here with giving two videos on Rally For Rivers
