Karnataka's Krishnarajasagara Dam on river Cauvery is full - and is a cause for celebration. The water has reached the full height of 124.8 feet and a maximum outflow of 80,000 cusecs have been recorded in the last few days. There have been successive years of drought in Karnataka - and it has been years since the dam reached the full level - and even longer since it became full as early as July. When it fills up, the chief minister of Karnataka performs puja at the 4 dams on the river as a gesture of thanksgiving. The puja is called 'bhagini'.
