As a civil society initiative to promote understanding among the people of the contending states and find an agreed solution to the Cauvery dispute, two meetings were organised in Chennai and Bangalore primarily of farmers from the two principal contending states. Both meetings were marked by a fraternal, harmonious and constructive spirit and a committee of farmers supported by a few advisers and facilitators has been set up. While it will be foolish to imagine that the long-festering dispute can be easily resolved, the positive approach displayed in the two meetings was encouraging and a cautious optimism seems warranted.
