Question
what does narmada meanas?

a)red water.
b)blue water.
c)green water.

Answer
Hi Soumitra,

I am sorry but with the research I have done, I've not been able to identify an alternate name or if it relates to a color.  However knowing that the river drains part of India that has deep volcanic layers, it may run red as a result of erosion of these volcanic soils.  So it is possible that it means "red" in one of the Indian languages.
