In April 2018 Mr. Vikram Chogle, a River Marcher and Mr. Himanshu Mehta of Art of Living went to Bangalore to meet Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji at his ashram and seek his blessings for the construction of the first check dam on Dahisar river. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji and his Art of Living Foundation have taken upon a mission of saving the rivers all over India and rejuvenating the same. Guruji gave a patient hearing to the condition of Dahisar river and gave his blessings for the construction check dam on Dahisar River. The Foundation brought a team of their own Engineers, technicians and workers who have a lot of experience in this work in many places in India and with their funds built the check dam.
