Reviving the tradition of 'kattas' 5.2.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
While some people show concern about rivers getting dry within months after the monsoon season, some just blame it on various factors. Rare are people who dont limit themselves to such blame games, but work towards improving the situation. One such effort was made in Hosangadi village in Dakshina Kannada district. A group of people comprising students, villagers and members of Rotary Club joined hands to build a mini check dam, locally known as katta, across River Phalguni. The idea of building a katta occurred to Hariprasad, a member of Hosangadi Gram Panchayat. "Earlier it was common to build kattas across streams and rivers in the coastal region.

Similarly, students of NSM Polytechnic ...
