Amidst the hills that create the River.
Trekked uphill labouriously, over large stony steps, one has a faint hope of encountering a bit of divine up there. Disappointment. But the view from up there, that is magical.
Kaveri / Cauvery is a big river. Big enough to create trouble over sharing of her waters between two large states. But at its point of origin its a modest, peaceful continuous stream.
Quite in keeping with India's ancient traditions, the River is feminine and deified as a goddess. She, who ensures bounties of sustenance for humans. Sit on the stairs, pray, meditate, or just watch her flow gently before you.
