The very mention of Tehri dam brings one person in my mind, Sundar Lal Bahuguna. His satyagrahas, hunger strikes and the struggles for more than two decades went in vain when theGovernment succeeded in building massive dam at Tehri across Bhagirathi River.
Our journey from from UttarKashi to Srinagar passed along the Tehri dam backwaters for more than 3 hours.
The dam displaced about one lakh people to generate 2000MW of electricity. Located in a seismic zone, this dam is built to withstand up to 7.2 magnitude of earthquake while 8+ magnitude earthquakes have hit the area in the past.
