Recently I read posting of Mr. jamoos jhalla blog jhallevichar about Dhandi Sarak of Meerut which is losing its characterstic due to cutting of trees, too much concrete jungle and pollution but it is not a problem of Meerut only, but in many cities Where the good climate/environment condition have changed and declining every day. In my childhood I have listened from my elders that many fruit gardens, reservoirs exist in my home town Bhiwani but they have been converted into concrete jungle now. In my childhood where I have seen farms is now developed colonies/sectors. In last 10 years at Faridabad I have seen converting too much farming land into sectors/colonies/offices/institutions even in Forest Area at Aravali Hills which is protected under law. Many local vegetables/fruits which are very tasty and nutritious not available now because of human interference in the natural cycle. Now a days SEZ are acquiring more and more land but now some awareness have come and even in Times of India dated 6 June, 2009 there is a news that villagers denied & protested against Reliance SEZ in Maharashtra. Previously the land which is used for farming has been acquired by capitalist/builders and now they constructing flats/buildings/bunglows on them.
Sometime I feel that after five six decades we may not have any land for farming and we will be not able to produce any food for our own country peoples and will be dependent on other countries means we will finish our self dependency.
Suggest your views to save the local environment, culture etc. while keeping the pace of development.
