Chapter synopsis: A river's nature is shaped by the geographic and climatic pecularities of the region which it flows. This chapter introduces the reader to the unique geographic and climatic conditions that created Kerala's rivers. Even as it presents an overview of Kerala's geography, this chapter talks about the state's unique weather conditions. It also offers insights into the geographical factors that led to the formation of Kerala's coast and those that caused some of the state's rivers to dissappear over the years.

- Nila Foundation
- What was once the life line of Kerala, is today a decaying, dying river. It is out of concern for Bharatapuzha (River Nila): the erosion of the river banks, the dilution of its culture, neglect and depletion of its resources - that the Nila foundation was formed. The foundation intends to provide a common platform for those who are concerned about rivers in general and River Nila in particular.
