Except 2008, the Keoladeo national park in Rajasthan has been receiving little or no water for the past six years. A seasonal breach of a dam upstream was the source of the water till 2003, the year the breach was repaired. Nobody at the time thought of the repercussions on the park. This year does not promise to be different. Plans in 2006 to divert floodwater to the park from a drain called Govardhan have not been implemented. Now, the 1,100 hectare wetland, which hosts local and migratory water birds, might lose its unesco heritage status.
