These photograms are the lasts of the river Sabarmati. The almost dried up river belt in Ahmedabad was reclaimed by the Government to make a luxurious riverside. It was called 'pinching the river' as they made the flow narrower and reclaimed the rest of the land with concrete. If you make a river front, you must have some water in the river. Sabarmati had no water left to flow and so the Government brought water from the river Narmada. The Narmada dam that displaced thousands of people and was meant to reach remote villages of almost three states, came to the city of Ahmedabad - not for any agriculture purposes, but merely to beautify the city.
The remains in these images are the last bits of the Sabarmati river before this absurdity took place. I collected water from Sabarmati and traces of life before they poured in their concrete. These images are the last remains of some sanity before luxury.
