‘Wanderlust’ has organized a Safari to explore and tell the tales of the Lost Water Bodies which Chennai was once a home to. On the way from Savera Hotel to Nandanam, Arun Krishnamurthy who is the founder of Environmentalist Foundation of India told that almost 37 water bodies have passed pointing at the high rises, commercial complexes, ponds and channels. He also asked the people to think about the impact of the urban pollution on the water bodies and, in turn, the people in the city. At the first stop at Adanbakkam Lake, the safari made its way to the Pallavaram Periya eri, which on one side has become a landfill. Painting the picture of how it would have been to sit by the lakes during sunset or probably sit on the banks of the freshwater bodies for a small picnic. Arun talked about the change in the topography due to the activity of humans on the freshwater bodies including encroachments and mindless dumping of garbage. Thus the main aim was to make people, as well as children, think about the change in the ecosystem and take steps to restore the history of the place
