River interlinking schemes- The modern and the normal

Re:
http://www.deccanherald.com/content/519696/interlinking-rivers-modis-priority-suresh.html
"... the 'Indian Rivers Inter-link' was proposed with an aim to link Indian rivers by a network of reservoirs and canals to reduce persistent floods in some parts and water shortages in other parts of the country."

The present state is a great abundance of the concrete jungle on drains and lakes-witness Chennai,Bangalore etc. We must examine the infinitely superior way of interlinking rivers and in fact basins with ecological forestation with people's cooperatives. For this one must subsume within one's true knowledge base the superior physiological properties of plants. See Thinking Outside the Box-Trees for Dams at
http://collateralsofclimatechange.blogspot.in/2015/12/thinking-outside-box-trees-for-dams.html
One must study how the gigantic pumping action of the sun using the osmosis and transpiration powers of plants redistributes the groundwaters via an atmospheric distribution network AUTOMATICALLY in proportion to the density of vegetation, given the highly disordered development which the present modern civilization's self destructive ways cause. The tree was created by the Lord just for this purpose so dams together with other contraptions of modern civilization(MC) dont go on a cumulative destruction of MC itself, like quakes which dams of the world cause to result in the extinction breeders like Fukushima which is expected to cause an excess of  330 million Indian infant deaths. Link rivers via nature or perish ye people rooted in MC

And now this:
Re: http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/kenbetwa-project-a-threat-to-wildlife/article8710664.ece?homepage=true

The average happiness created by the dams of the world is zero: They are extinction breeders. Replace them with forests. 

"Proponents of the project, led by the
Union Water Ministry, say that the proposed Daudhan dam and the 2.5 km
canal — the key structures of the project — that will transfer surplus
water from the Uttar Pradesh section of the Ken to the Betwa in Madhya
Pradesh are critical to irrigate nearly 7,00,000 hectares in
drought-ravaged Bundelkhand."
This is a waste of money and does not serve any purpose. See
Perfect Designs: The average happiness created by the dams of the world is zero:
They are extinction breeders. Replace them with forests.
But what foolishness to create more irrigation in droughty Bundelkhand when you
waste every year 60 million tons of fruits and vegetables? Grown on 6 million hectares? Repeat: Grown on 6 million hectares!
Have a holistic approach to governance, consult Piyushji - Power and engineers and
entrepreneurs working on creating air conditioned storage for fruits using
no electricity: Use solar energy in vapour absorption chilling systems! Learn from the Chinese tycoon(See Ref Chinese tycoon). Integrate this
with a national plan to convert air conditioning from electricity guzzling
catastrophe of extinction breeding machines like those in use in this self
destructive development of modern civilization. Redistribute these saved fruits among the Bundelkhandies and other parts of India and simultaneously reforest the whole of India and the world(May involve more travel sprees for Modiji). Think outside the box:
Trees for Dams! Allow the water to fly like God does when he moves through the trees to make the woodlands green! Learn from the teachings of the Gita.
Have some democratic practice replace these presumptive specialist governance!
Have referendum on development. Modiji please have a heart.
Forests should not be destroyed, not even for a good reason, dams are hell of a bad evil. Stop this mal-development. 6 million hectares wasted and catastrophe of dams to create 700000 hectares of irrigation?

Prevention is better than NO CURE! See what Ref on foodgrains observes very very pertinently:

Every year we spend crores of rupees out of public exchequer for preventing decay—but to no avail—and then spend a fortune again to dispose of the piled up waste. We would rather not produce the crop in the first place as production takes a toll not only on the natural resources like soil and water but also impacts environment because of green house emissions. On the other hand, we could produce other crops like pulses, which we import very often. The Prime Minister recently appealed to the farmers to grow pulses on part of their land. But such appeals in all likelihood will go unheeded as long as distorted incentives to produce cereals—wheat and rice—continue.
