Avoca River

The Avoca River, an inland intermittent river of the north–central catchment, part of the Murray-Darling basin, is located in the lower Riverina bioregion and Central Highlands and Wimmera regions of the Australian state of Victoria. The headwaters of the Avoca River rise on the northern slopes of the Pyrenees Range and descend to flow into the ephemeral Kerang Lakes; the Avoca River drains a substantial part of central Victoria. The river rises at the foot of Mount Lonarch near the small town of Amphitheatre, flows north for 270 kilometres joined by thirteen minor tributaries and through the towns of Avoca and Quambatook. Two major distributaries leave the Avoca River between Charlton and Quambatook, Tyrrell Creek, flowing to Lake Tyrrell and Lalbert Creek flowing to Lake Lalbert. Although the Avoca River basin is part of the Murray-Darling basin, the Avoca River does not empty into the Murray. Nowhere a large stream, it dwindles as it flows north terminating in the Kerang Lakes, a network of ephemeral swamps west of Kerang and about 20 kilometres south of the Murray River.

Although the Avoca River has a substantial 12,000-square-kilometre catchment area, the fifth largest in Victoria, most of that area is on the northern plains where rainfall averages only about 350 millimetres per year, where there is little runoff as the terrain is flat. The mean annual runnoff of 137 gigalitres per annum accounts for only 0.67% of Victoria's runoff. Most of the water flowing in the Avoca River originates in the narrow upper portion of the catchment area, where rainfall averages about 600 millimetres per year, most of it falling in the winter and spring. Of all the Victorian rivers in the Murray-Darling basin, the Avoca River is the most variable; the average annual flow is 85 gigalitres, however recorded actual flows have varied from five times the average figure in wet years to 0.5% of the average in drought years. It has an variable flow, ranging from long periods of low flow that are less than 50 megalitres per day to floods. In dry years, flow stops for many months. Although it is the only river of significance in the area, the Avoca River has had no major water storages constructed on it six weirs of only local significance.

Little use of the river is made for irrigation as during the peak demand periods of summer and autumn, the river is not flowing. During low flow periods the Avoca River water is too saline to water crops with, but can still provide drinking water for sheep and cattle; the river is crossed by the Pyrenees Highway at Avoca. As the river is long, indigenous peoples from various cultural groups lived near the river course. In the indigenous Djadjawurrung, Wathawurrung and Wembawemba languages, the river has several names including Natte yaluk and Boca both with no defined meaning.

The story-line is about the mysterious healing powers of Navabhashanam Lingams of Lord Shiva; the plot opens with a small fictional village named Chitharpatti, where a temple of Chitheswarar attracts a large number of devotees thanks to its legend as well as its purported power to heal any known or unknown disease. An ashram adjacent to the temple, headed by Oomaisaamy is a popular name, as it cures any physically or mentally ill patient.

The temple is closed from 6 pm every evening. It is believed that Siddhars enter the temple past its closure for the day, perform their rituals and prayers and leave before dawn, anyone who disturbs the prayers of the Siddhars is done away with by the guardian of the temple, believed to guard the temple during the night in the form of a dog; this belief attracts a number of rationalists to the temple, who want to solve the mystery. One such rationalist, a journalist names Srikanth, hides in the temple when it is being closed for the day, in an attempt to find out what happens in the temple in the dark. However, as if the villagers' fear is made true, Srikanth is killed by a dog while he is inside the temple. Hence, the entire village is convinced that the temple of Chitheshwarar is a den of heavenly Siddhas who pray during the night, leaving ordinary people to pray during the day. Srikanth's friend, Mani Sundaram is the young son of the temple's chief priest, he is a rationalist, who does not believe in rituals.

Instead, he chooses to rationalize his beliefs, hence ends up at odds with his father with regard to the temple's mysteries and rituals. One by one, four people are killed inside the temple, including a police inspector, there to investigate the mystery. At this juncture, Dr. KR —once a great psychiatrist, but now mentally retarded—strays into the village, is admitted to Oomaisaamy's ashram by Mani. Prasad, Dr. KR's son, comes in search of him, ends up being a guest to Mani and his sister Lalitha; as Mani and Prasad try to reveal the temple's mystery more, they come to know that Dr. KR is acting as a retard, he too is trying to do the same, but Dr. KR has personal intentions, he had been regarded as one of the best psychiatrists of India, an Indian Central Minister admits his mentally retarded son to his hospital for treatment. But Dr. KR is unable to cure the Minister's son after giving his best for the patient. Enraged by this, the Minister ridicules Dr. KR and moves his son away to Oomaisaamy's ashram after hearing other people speak so about it.

Dr. KR feels insulted and decides to find out how Oomaisaamy is able to cure patients so effortlessly in his ashram. To achieve this, he makes everyone believe he is retarded, lands up in Oomaisaamy's ashram. What Dr. KR does not know, is that he was unable to cure the Minister's son not because of his incompetency, but because of a sinister scheme laid out by his junior, Dr. Vishwaram; as Dr. KR acts as a retard and tries to uncover Chitharpatti's mystery, he stumbles upon a greater truth about what might be going on inside the temple during the dark. Dr. KR and Mani decide to work together to find out the truth. Mani finds out that there are one or more persons entering the temple at night through a secret entrance to the temple, exiting at dawn. In an attempt to find out what they are doing inside the temple, Mani hides in the temple one night, he finds out that the two men enter the temple with trained d
