This book is related with my research work, which was conducted in Dudhkoshi river basin of Khumbu area of Nepal. The study mainly focused on the analysis of impact of climate change in water resource of Dudhkoshi Basin using HBV Light model. As Climate Change is becoming a challenging issue at current time especially in Higher mountainous region like Khumbu area and glacier fed river basin like Dudhkoshi river basin, a study like this may helpful to know the existing situation of the study area. I hope it will be beneficial to those who are working in the field of climate change.

A mayfly dances above honey-gold water in the evening sunshine; a kingfisher plunges into the sparkling depths to emerge with a struggling minnow in its orange beak; an otter slips silently through reeds; a family of moorhens paddles to its night-time lodgings. Here is the perfect, idyllic scene of a British river in summertime captured with love and astonishing skill by two of the leading wildlife filmmakers of our age. Halcyon River Diaries was commissioned following the phenomenally successful and award-winning My Halcyon River an intimate portrait of a secret world along a river in Britain, where otters hunt on the midnight current, mink lie in wait to ambush unwary victims and gleaming kingfishers pierce the water to spear their prey. Deemed as one of the most beautiful films at the Wildscreen festival, 2004, My Halcyon River was the winner of the Kodak Cinematography Award. Halcyon River Diaries is an evocative look at the wildlife of a typical English river, through the eyes of Philippa and Charlie's family, including their three young sons Fred, Gus and Arthur, who live beside it. Over the period of a year we experience life on the river following the same group of animal characters as they navigate the seasons, as well as seeing how Philippa and Charlie's passion for the river extends into every part of their family life.
It was a dream come true – I was off to Egypt to interview a famous archaeologist! I climbed on board a crabby old camel that would take me across the desert to the Cheese Pyramid. There, among mummies and hieroglyphics, I would learn the secret of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient Mouse World…
Degradation of rivers in the urban areas has become a serious problem around the world. Though the causes leading to river degradation are diverse, disposal of solid and liquid waste, encroachment upon the river waterway and water extraction are some of the obvious causes of river degradation. The studies focusing on river degradation often limit the area of inquiries to the assessment of changes in the river hydrology, morphology and water quality. While these assessments are important, it is also immensely important to look into the consequences of river degradation- who are affected, how and to what extent? This study was carried out with the aim of evaluating the factors and processes leading to the degradation of Hanumante River and the cultural, religious and livelihood consequences therefrom and the adaptation of people depending on river for their livelihood.
The River Yamuna, the largest tributary of River Ganga has been one of the most prominent and important rivers of India. Unfortunately, certain stretches of River Yamuna are much polluted. In return, almost the entire wastewater generated by these centers is disposed off into the river. This is the prime reason for deterioration of Yamuna River water quality. Rapid urbanization in Delhi has further compounded the pressure on the sewerage system. Apart from point sources of pollution, diffused sources of pollution such as agricultural pollution and various instream uses of water such as cattle wading, bathing, open defaecation and cloth washing add to the deterioration of river water quality. Although identification of the pathogenic bacteria in few rivers have been done but this is for the first time that we are examining the different water samples from various locations of River Yamuna and selectively isolating bacterial pathogens on respective selective medium allowing only desired bacteria to grow in the enrichment media, staphylococcus aureus and salmonella typhi were detected in the river Yamuna water samples at every location along with their respective bacteriophages.
