  2. UmaS says:

    OOOH !!!! Never knew that they color a river in green color….looks weird, becos we always think of blue water….but interesting…. :)

  3. Is this green colour agent eco friendly? If it is, then it looks cool :)

  4. Rang says:

    Hey! The entire river is colored green, amazing! only hope that it does not causes any damage to the water life inside, chemicals you know :) Otherwise it looks really amazing. And so nice of your friend Ravi :) lucky you, aren’t you?

  7. Ashwathy says:

    The river was coloured Green for St. Patrick’s Day..
    How??

  8. Obsessivemom says:

    O My God that’s the craziest thing I heard… colouring up a river.. wow.. U really must ask your friend how they did it. I mean standing water is a possibility but a river… tough task. What enthu!

  9. Madhu says:

    • Bikram says:

    Looks like a covering of algae!

  11. Chhavi says:

    I have never seen a green river Bikram…. Thanks for sharing these pictures :)

  12. sangeeta says:

    This is interesting…i was wondering what colors they use for coloring the whole river. Is there some ‘ safe ‘ coloring agent?

    • Bikram says:

      Well it has to be safe else imagine how many people would have SUED the organisers for putting water wild life to risk..

      • Bikram says:

        Sangeeta It is supposedly some vegetable dye that is used to colour this river every year and the tradition is more than forty years old…

        @Sapna a fellow blogger told me ..

  13. Deboshree says:

    Wow. What a green green river. It makes me feel rather weird actually.
    A very interesting take on the theme though, I must say. :D

  14. Ria says:

    interesting n different.

  15. Loved your pics!!! But how did they change the colour of the river?

    • Bikram says:

      I have no idea IHM, I have emailed my friend hope he comes back with a answer and then i can let all know.. but this is what has happened..
      Thank you.

      • Bikram says:

  16. Nethra says:

    They colored the water. Is it safe? Water animals won’t die, right?

    • Bikram says:

      hey hey hey Good to see you here :) well I am sure its safe otherwise they would not do it, America is so very conscious of all this political correctness and human rights blah blah blah..

  17. Seena says:

    • Bikram says:

    Thanks for sharing the pics :)

    • Bikram says:

      oooh yes green is the way to go :)
      THanks yeh probably what u say a vegetable dye of some sort.. ah ha good you told now other can know tooo :)

  33. manchitra says:

    A colored river , seeing for first time, How they do it, by adding chemicals? Will it spoil the water? But the pictures are awesome.

    • Bikram says:

      I also saw for first time in pics,, hopefully might get the oppurtunity to see it live one day.

      I dont know the answer to ur question but hopefully it wont.

  34. Punam says:

    Do u know something.. green is considered the colour of prosperity, continuity and life. So, hail green .. the pics are lovely and good to see ur friends.. u have written posts about them previously, right? You should connect them to this post.
    My blog supports a Green Earth, so green is the way to go.. :)

    • Bikram says:

      Nope I did not know that about green.

      jsut friend not friendssss unless u can see someone i cant :)

      yeah GO GREEEENNNNNNNNNNN is the slogan these days with everything energy,earth alll .. Both my cars are GREEN color :)

  35. Saritha says:

    Wow beautiful colour….

  36. Shilpa Garg says:

    Very interesting… a green coloured river!! :)

  37. Anu says:

    colored water!!
    But still it looks great…

  38. Rachna says:

    Wow, that looks good but looks like there is a lot of moss on the water. Generally, green water is associated with being grimy, but this seems to be a play of light while clicking :).

  39. Down south, here- in India– I ve seen green ponds… but never a river! ponds — due to the moss n everything… but to color a river green—- seems strange! :)

    good pics but! :)

  40. Simran says:

    Loved that green river , looks wierd but still eye catching :)
    Take care!

  41. raji says:

    nice one bikram..it’s greeeeen…

  42. Kame says:

    i love it!It looks so beautiful. i just hope they use a environmental friendly dye

  43. Chakoli says:

    heye thats amazing whole river looks green but isit coz of algae….

  44. Manna says:

    Looks beautiful but then I am not sure about the life inside. Is it really safe to have it colored this way? And did it again change back to normal? :P

    • Bikram says:

      Haanji it does look lovely. WEll I dont think any damage was done and as such it was only for sometime for That particular day. Though i am not sure about the safety. Yes it did change back to normal…

  45. Manna says:

    Oh I see.. :)

  46. This is a really great blog. Thx to the auther
