First Album: The day before Vashisht Mela (village festival) started, I walked up Chhor Naala (the stream fed by Jogini Falls) and photographed the hydro electric project works (Thursday 12th April 2012).
Second Album: After that depressing task, the second album follows my walk from the headwater fall of Jogini Devi, returning to Vashisht through the lovely spring countryside (Thursday 12th April 2012).
Third Album: Covers that part of the Mela first day that is held at Jogini Falls in honour of the Goddess (Friday, 13th April 2012).
JOGINI FALLS & THE HYDRO PROJECT:
The Water Millers Company of Bhuntar obtained permission to build a 1MW micro hydro power plant below the Jogini Falls. But their plant extends now up into the Goddess' private area, invading her peace & desecrating the lovely quietude of Jogini Falls. The Flower Raj supports the villagers of Vashisht in their court battle against this invasive & unnecessary project.
