1 min read

Mandya: Adichunchanagiri mutt seer Sri Dr Nirmalanandanatha Swamiji offered a special puja at the mutt temples to mark Guru Purnima, recently.

On the occasion, the seer felicitated Kamegowda, whom Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed as Water Warrior.

A resident of Dasadoddi village in Malvalli taluk, Kamegowda is a poor shepherd who built 17 ponds to quench the thirst of birds and animals.

For his self-less endeavours, Kamegowda has been hailed as ‘Modern Bhagiratha’.

Dasadoddi, once a barren land, boasts of small ponds -all built by him. He has named these ponds after his grandchildren with a hope to kindle love for nature in them.
