“1963: INDIA – LAND OF SEVEN RIVERS”

The rivers in A’nanda Nagar are:
1) Dakina, (southern).
2) Uttara, (northern).
3) Kunti, (mother of the Pandava brothers) previously called Kopia, meaning angry, because of flash floods.
4) Alkananda, meaning the river coming from heaven, and  previously called Alkusi (which often gave lots of trouble due to flash floods and the subsequent damage this caused).
5) Guaki, which is loop shaped, and is actually the confluence of the Daksina and Uttara.
6. Paragati, and
7. Mandakinii.
India used to be called the land of the seven rivers, and now A’nanda Nagar is the land of the seven rivers.
