Mam ur achievements and the effort is really appreciated but I would just like to advise u that next time u make videos pls take the pain of explaining each slide because at present ur just reading it and that is just not up to the mark
mam u r so helpful to me. it gives me more confidence on my aspiration of CSE thank you very much
How old are these videos? Some key hydroprojects have been missed out like Kishenganga, Ratle, Miyar, Lower Kalnai etc. I believe more important stuff might have been left out.

Kishenganga dam is on Kishanganga tributary of Jhelum. It is a run-of-the-river project which has been an issue between India and Pakistan. You can see the final award of International Court of Arbitration online (Pakistan took up the issue but India was finally allowed to go ahead). Pakuldul, Miyar and Lower Kalnai are on Chenab's tributaries and have been in news very recently. Check out Ratle is another under-construction dam on Chenab.
