    I am bored to death at work so I decided to browse your posts on my iphone during lunch break. To think, I was confused a minute ago.

    You should be thanked more often. You think about this from far more than one view point.

    I think my favourite Van Gogh painting would be Starry Night and I love the Don Mclean song Vincent which is about this painting.

    thought of sharing this information
    Total water availability (per year) in Cauvery- 736 tmc to 740 tmc (in non-distress period)
    Tamilnadu’s Share 419 tmc Karnataka’s Share 270 tmc Kerala’s Share 30 tmc Puducherry’s share7 tmc
    Where it comes from
    For TN

    TN will get 192 tmc from Karnataka

    The rest 227 tmc will come from its own catchment area. This includes water gets into Cauvery river from from TN’s Noyyal, Bhavani and Kollidam rivers For Karnataka

    The water available from Tala Cauvery to Biligundu (catchment area) belongs to Karnataka For Kerala

    Karnataka has to give For Puducherry

    Tamilnadu has to give
    As a last reparian state TN should leave 10 tmc of water in cauvery river, for environmental purpose
    Why TN is not a winner

    After getting 192 tmc from Karnataka, TN has to give 7 tmc to Puducherry and leave 10 tmc in cauvery itself. So, TN’s share comes downto 175 tmc. This is well below the 205 tmc allotted in the interim order of tribunal. Why Karnataka is not a loser

    Karnataka need to give only 192 tmc to TN, not 205 tmc as stipulated in interim award
    Karnataka’s major reservation

    Why 419 tmc for TN and only 270 tmc for us? Tribunal’s answer

    The share was worked out after the assessors report of total cultivable land in all the four states and water required and climatic patterns
    Why TN is celebrating?

    There was no assurance of getting any amount of water from Karnataka till now. But, now the final order has mandated the centre to form a monitoring committee to ensure the flow of stipulated water from Karnataka. So whatever water comes is fine for TN
    The major misunderstanding (in Karnataka)

    Karnataka has to give 419 tmc to TN, which is not the fact. It is only 192 tmc
    When rain gods fail…

    In distress period all the states have to reduce their share, in the ratio of final order.And every alternative year is a distress year in the peninsula for the last few decades!!
