A Hill Road in Garhwal
A far away hill fan battles to item together what exactly is going on exactly in Uttarakhad ?
If the outstanding expand of the Ganges had not freshly mowed down everything that came in its direction, be it temple, road, building or bridge, then for Uttarakhand too, this would have been a day of party. For Tuesday is Ganga Dussehra, a day when Ganga is said to come down to the world from her invisible residence. Some say to get rid of. Not many questioned it which moments like these cleaning over Uttarkashi and other locations.
And Uttarkashi is the district take-off point Gangotri, from where the Ganga descends. Less than the other day the Primary reverend of Uttarakhand was in Delhi asking for a evaluation of a latest notice announcing wide extends between Gaumukh to Uttarkashi in the condition as an eco-sensitive area.
A PTI report of July 5 says, 'Citing continuous demonstrations by residence against the Centre's later notice announcing the place as eco-sensitive, the Primary Minister said the shift will negatively impact the facilities tasks continuous in the boundary place which is extremely delicate to natural calamities.'
While the team 'natural Calamity' will need a nearer analysis and reaction in the months and years to come- just a primary examine of something more immediate strikes a walls. Listening to about the Char Dham yatra being revoked, I tried getting more details on the official Uttarakhand website on yatris and here is what I got.
When press reviews are different on anything between 20000-70000 plus yatris across the char dhams of Kedarnath , Badrinath, Yamnotri, Gangotri being stuck, how is an inexperienced to check? Especially if Mobile phones do not work in some of these places. And where most hill roads look like this.
I do wish another 0 on another govt web page in more precise though. According to the Met division, the elements prediction for much of Uttarkashi and Rudraprayag districts, both poorly hit is no 0 mm rain fall, for the relax of this weeks time.
Meanwhile as Harbhajan Singh, the cricketer coming back from Hemkund Sahib, is securely at the ITBP camping at Josh math, we wish the countless figures trapped across the char dhams, too discover their way house soon. And securely.
As the beginning distribute of the Native Indian monsoon is decoded in the times to come, this too originates as one more web page in a Himalayan diary of disasters.
