The root of the garuda sanjivani plant moves against the flow of water because of its shape

But there's no current...

I call BS. Somone is pulling this thing.

This is a stick on a string according to other posts about it.

A stick on a string

No it doesn't.

If I saw that while swimming, I’d be hightailing it out that snake-ridden water!

Plus it looks like it is moving fast enough to start creating a wake...

Bullshit sandwich and I’m not eating it.

Wouldn't that imply it somehow getting more energy than it should from the current? I feel like at best it would've just spun in place; traveling upstream would mean that it's getting more energy from the water flowing past it than the water should contain or am I just overthinking this??
