India, with a population of about 1.3 billion is ranking second in the world for highest population. It is amazing to see how traffic police of India manage and control the traffic with their skill. It will be better if some changes are made for effective traffic management because this will directly lead to reduction in the accidents that happen everyday either on roads while commuting or on highways.
Traffic congestion is a serious issue in metro cities of India specially Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore and the reason behind this problem is migration of people in search of better job and lifestyle. Population density per is much more than what it should be. Government cannot stop people from migrating, but what government can do is to provide better facilities and effective management of traffic.
Let us take the example of Ahmadabad , one of the cities that is waiting to become a metro city, currently AMTS is running approximately 1227 buses and among them 977 are active buses and 250 buses are BRTS uses . By introduction of BRTS buses it has diverted lot of population to use public transport but still people prefer personal vehicle and reason behind this cause is very simple and valid.
Having personal vehicle saves time and money, provides comfort and ease. The most important thing to be noted is private vehicle is helpful in emergency situations. But on the other side it leads to more accidents as well because people drive in harsh manner in a high speed.  Statistics says that  a large number of new vehicles also contribute to accidents. Bumps, speed breakers and driving while talking on phone are major causes of fatalities, accidents and deaths.
The number of accidents and deaths on the roads are 72/hr; 1278/day and 630720/year
(All figures are approx.; Source: Transport research wing, Ministry of road transport and highways)

Statistics of death accident and fatalities in percentage in every state

Uttar Pradesh – 12.8%

Tamil nadu – 11.4%

Maharashtra – 8.6%

Karnataka – 7.4%

Rajasthan – 6.9%

Madhya Pradesh – 6.4%

Andhra Pradesh – 5.7%

Gujarat – 5.4%

Telangana – 4.8%

West Bengal – 4.3%

Punjab – 3.4%

Haryana – 3.3%

Bihar – 3.3%

Other states – 16.3%

Total – 100

(Source: Transport research wing, Ministry of road transport and highways).

Above data clearly shows that the Uttar Pradesh, state with one of the highest population is also on the top of the list and also lacks  proper transport facility  and speeding is also one of the major problem of UP and all the other states also .
Some suggestion to solve this congestion problems will simultaneously lead to reduction in accidents, deaths ,fatalities, reduction in pollution level, better air quality, less fuel consumption and better health and lifestyle. Government should invest in better planning and proper management like it should construct subways in six way lanes or market square areas, special lanes dedicated to buses, modern buses at various times of a day. Buses need transformation which will also encourage people to use public transport and at the same time it should be cheap as well so that they will use it frequently and fuel prices should be hiked for luxury cars and other such vehicles. Along with this government also needs to maintain the transport system well (like cleaning of bus stations every 6 hours this will also solve the problem of unemployment). Government should also employ state of the art scheduling policies for buses.  Applications for people to check buses and routes which will ease the communication and buses should be punctual. Safety is also an important aspect. Vehicle density per needs to be reduced as well. To encourage usage of public transport four wheelers should be made costly.
The state government of a particular state should encourage people to use bicycles and walk. They should declare one day as vehicle free day and this would lead to huge saving of fuel and it will also lead to fall in fuel prices in future. Other Asian countries and European countries are encouraging this idea because it helps to reduce the effects of global warming, noise and air pollution etc. Underground parking should be encouraged to reduce the traffic congestion problems on the streets. People should also take responsibility and drive safely and follow the traffic rules.

“It is best to work among the youth in whom lies our hope — patiently, steadily, and without noise”. – Swami Vivekananda

Every year August 12 is observed as International Youth Day. It is the day for addressing and creating awareness about the issues faced by youth worldwide. It is designated by United Nations focusing on 15 priority areas with some being Education and Employment, Youth and Conflict, Health, Drug Abuse, Juvenile delinquency. The theme for this year  is Youth Building Peace which aims to recognize the contributions of  youth to prevent and transform conflicts , support inclusion, social justice and maintain peace.


As part of youth development in India , State Bank of India has initiated a fellowship programme called SBI Youth of  India, in partnership with NGOs. In this, young people work with rural communities in areas like skill development, sanitation, education and e-governance across 9 states of the country presently.


There are 1.8 billion young people in the world  between the ages 15-29, according to the UN Report. And India becomes the country which has the world’s largest youth population with nearly 345 million young people that accounts 28% of the country’s population. Though having large youth population gives potential for economic and social progress, India still remains in the critical phase. This is proved  by India’s rank in Global Youth Development Index 2016 complied by Commonwealth Secretariat.


India  ranked 133rd  among 183 participating countries with neighboring countries SriLanka(31), Bhutan(69), Nepal(77). The report  highlights that youth development falls behind mainly in education, employment and health. Looking at the stats, unemployment rate stands at 5%. And 13.2% people belonging to the age group 18-29 did not manage to find jobs in 2015-2016 according  to the survey conducted by Labour Bureau. When it comes to health, more than 60% women between age groups 15-49 are anemic. Assam ranks the lowest in the Health Outcome Index. And Overall youth literacy rate stands at 89.95% between 15-24 age group.


India spends very less on youth development compared to its size of population.According to the RBI, expenditure on Education and Health  remains at 2.9 and  1.4 as a proportion of country’s GDP in 2016-2017 which is same as last year. In fact, there is no significant improvement on expenditure on both from fiscal years  2009-2010. All these reiterates the need to increase public spending on youth developmental issues to reap demographic dividend.


People tend to go for Education in conventional domains , example Engineering. When students in large number go for Engineering , they end up jobless or forced to settle with  IT jobs. This is due to the reason that India is more into service sector and no relevant jobs available in existing industries.Awareness about wide career courses and opportunities available should be created among Indian Youths. And government should  focus on job creation. These are also the reasons why we can find Indians migrating to foreign nations for Employment. It is known that those nations which employ Indians praise their potential and skills. What would happen if half of these population work and become entrepreneurs in India creating jobs rather waiting for government to do its part? Although this is gaining momentum in recent times, it still is not enough compared to having world’s largest youth population.


Social and Ethical Values are to be inculcated among the young people for they are the future of India. The sense of social responsibility is slowly but steadily creeping in the minds of Indian youth.They can be the tides of change, they can work towards eliminating crimes and social injustice and maintain peace.


Power of Youth is indubitable. They can achieve anything and everything they want. Protest in favour of  Jallikattu in TamilNadu  is simple example of what youth can do.If they are properly guided and provided with adequate resources and opportunities, they can contribute to the Economic Growth and can as well help realize the Vision of  Developed India.

The attack of WannaCry Ransomware (that happened a few months ago, globally), followed by the illicit hacking of social media account of the vice-president of Congress party, Rahul Gandhi, has seemingly instigated a wave of change in Andhra Pradesh’s online data management system, to fight the cyber crimes there are.

For the same, Andhra Pradesh has become the first in Asia, to introduce the Blockchain technology in the wake of demonetization, to prevent its people’s wealth and all the sensitive information online. The Chief Minister, Sri Chandrababu Naidu, has always been supportive of the “go-cashless” drive and has been doing his best to take Narendra Modi’s dream of “making India cashless” ahead.

The Blockchain Technology has already been introduced in a few departments in Andhra Pradesh to keep all its data secure. This technology stores all the transactions in a publicly centralized digital ledger that can solve the problem of online data manipulations without having a third party involved to check for the same. Blockchain technology assures safe mode for payments, banking and data storage, for the users.

Blockchain Tech.

Furthermore, Chandrababu Naidu has also announced the launch of an app called “AP Purse” that will facilitate simplistic online-payment-making methods for the people of Andhra Pradesh. CM Chandrababu Naidu, for his peerless initiatives, had been appointed the head for a committee of five Chief Ministers on Demonetization, by the Finance Minister of India, Mr. Arun Jaitley.

The most iconic superstar in its fraternity, the handcrafted sports car, Dodge Viper, which carried a massive 8.4 liter V10 engine and drove like a thirsty vamp, will no longer be produced after August 31st 2017, as confirmed by the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, on an official notice.

The car has been hand assembled for the past 25 years, at a facility at Detroit that will also be sealed for good. Although the end is nigh, the reason has not been made official, but according to the, it is being believed that the car doesn’t fit in the new occupant-ejection airbag requirements. As avoidable as it might sound, it is difficult, apparently, for the makers to fit airbags into the small pit of the car and thus, selling Dodge Viper will be deemed illegal after 2017, unless the manufacturers make the design radically different.

However, the orders placed through the “one of one program”, will be built till the 31st of August for people who wish to own this one of a kind, soon-to-be historic piece.

What is culture?

Culture is the characteristics and knowledge of a particular group of people, defined by everything from language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and arts. Culture can be defined as a combination of beliefs, values and attitudes that is shared amongst a population of people.

What is creativity?

Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity is characterised by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then doing.

A culture and creativity must come hand in hand. Creativity of a person should not be suppressed in the name of culture. Cultural tightness of a society affects creativity. Instead culture must be a platform for a person to bring out his creativity.

In our society if women are to come out of their house, there are still certain restrictions for them. A woman is not allowed to choose certain fields even though she has talent in that field. Why can’t a woman choose fields​ like wildlife photography, night photography and journalism. Why do we still have restrictions in this society? Because the society restricts them not to step out of the house late at night.

Women are generally asked to follow certain restrictions. The woman who has skill in night photography should remain dumb without expressing her skills and creativity. Why should the woman who has these talents remain dumb because she was born in this culture?

A culture is just a custom that has been brought into​ this society to discipline ourselves and to correct us while we move in wrong path. But that culture should not be a restriction or barrier to bring out our creativity. An individual is free to express his creativity in this society.

At the same time, we have a custom that Hindu women must wear bhindi. Some women wear and some don’t. The society alienates the women who doesn’t wear a bhindi. A culture is a concept. To accept the concept or not depends on the mindset​ of an individual. It is their choice; the society need not play a role here. The women who wears a bhindi does the same things as those who don’t wear a bhindi. They do achieve, in this society.

A custom cannot determine who we are or how we have to be? It is an individual’s interest. Introverts don’t show themselves up in parties or celebrations. They don’t like to talk to the people whom they don’t know. But the society wants them to. Isn’t it like forcing?  We shouldn’t force someone to do something​ if they have no interest. If introverts want to mingle with others they will do it on their own. There is no need to force them to do something.

Still this custom exists in India, women are married at the age of 18. It is approved by our law that a woman can be married at the age of 18. But think what knowledge she would have acquired at that age. She wouldn’t have got proper education at that age. How will she express her identity to the world? It is like totally suppressing one’s creativity, talent, knowledge etc,. in the name of culture. Is it applicable? It sounds like utter nonsense. A culture should guide a person but it shouldn’t control them by suppressing them to express their own talents and creativity.

A culture must be something that should enhance our creativity. Our life in this world belongs to us not to the society. Culture must not stop a person in expressing his creativity. When culture and creativity go together many achievements can be done. A culture must be free from gender, caste, religion etc,. and creativity of a person is something unique. It should not be restricted in the name of culture.


India is a land of exotic diversity – from its culture to its topography. In every corner of the country, one witnesses a different type of weather and land form, a different race of people and a variety of cultures, languages, religious beliefs and eating habits. As the 1.3 billion people of the seventh-largest country in the world take pride in saying, there is unity in our diversity. One similarity that runs through the different cultures and races of every part of India is the economic inequality among its people. The richest 1% own 58% of the nation’s total wealth, leaving behind 23% of the Indian population impoverished. If this was not problem enough, the rich and powerful exploit the poor in every way possible and the poor in India face all kinds of hardships on a daily basis- from food insecurity and lack of healthcare, to illiteracy, unemployment and a total lack of general facilities. Despite the technological and economic development taking place in urban areas of India, the condition of the poor continues to deteriorate.

Over the years 2011 to 2015, Indian NGOs received $7 billion worth of foreign funding.

With these provisions being made, we see no improvement in the developing state of the Indian population. So, the question that arises is:  where does the funding really go? What are the NGOs really up to?

In 2015, the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs cancelled the licences of 10,000 NGOs. Why?

The reasons were:

  • “Not filling returns
  • Misutilisation of funds
  • Accepting funds for prohibited activities, which include funding legal costs of bail
  • Writ petitions of NGOs in India and their activists
  • Undisclosed payment of salaries by foreign NGOs to foreign activists”

This is what those 10,000 NGOs had been up to. But these were just the reported cases. Like the 95% of unreported rape cases in India, NGO fraudulence also goes majorly unreported.

A submission of few documents and not more than ₹3000 is al it takes for an NGO registration in India. Once registered, NGOs are licensed to acquire foreign funding by submitting their development model. With the process being so easy, there’s an NGO sprouting up in every nook and cranny of the country. These NGOs, though, aren’t open with the sole aim of service to the society and/or its upliftment, they have some hidden aims too. The not-for-profit organizations take illegal profit shares from the funds provided to them for human welfare. With the funds which are to be used to provide basic nutrition and clean drinking water for underprivileged people, corrupt NGO heads and members fulfill their own profligacy.

A country cannot grow with efforts made by one person alone, it can only grow with efforts made by all, in the right direction and with the same motive. Here comes a crucial aspect which should be considered, What is the role of NGOs? NGOs are meant for filling the gaps between government and citizens. Indian Government, even after 67 years of independence, has not been able to reach ground level reality; the facts above justify it. NGOs came into existence so that more underprivileged people could be reached out. So, the role of NGOs was to help the government in taking remedial measures, but NGO establishment has now become a business. In this business, donation and funding is taken from different sources and instead of putting it to humanitarian causes, the people running NGOs pocket it for their benefits.

The un-secular nature of the NGO was discussed in a report from 2014, titled, “Hindu nationalism in the United States: A Report on Non-Profit Groups”.

A number of Indian NGOs had been officially blacklisted and their licenses had been cancelled, cutting off their foreign funding.

In the 2015-16 fiscal, Christian NGOs Ayana Charitable Trust, Believers Church India and World Vision India received the highest foreign funding. Ayana Charitable Trust, based in Kerala, is reportedly just the name under which the Texas-based NGO, Gospel for Asia, funds projects in India. The NGO, headed by the Keralite K.P. Yohannan, has two lawsuits of racketeering and fraud filed against it by former Arkansas donors. Gospel for Asia is also a prominent donor to Believers Church, whose temporal and spiritual head is K.P. Yohannan himself, and which owns billions of dollars in assets and claims over 2 million members. Most ventures in Yohannan’s religious empire are for profit. Param Shakthi Peeth, an NGO run by Sadhvi Rithambara, a Hindu political activist and a member of Vishwa Hindu Parishad and RSS, was the second-highest recipient of foreign funding in 2015-16.

Despite the allegations, devotees keep on donating to these organisations. As some of the NGOs are run by religious institutions, people believe that they’d be genuinely working for the greater good. When religion comes into the picture, people turn a blind eye to what may as well be full-fledged corruption and injustice. Because of this, the corruption does not stop, it continues and exploits the resources for the poor in its wake.

There are NGOs which genuinely work, or aim to work, for the betterment of society. But because of the frequent fraudulence in the NGO world, their work is doubted as well.

With licenses and funding being continually issued to reportedly corrupt organisations, development or positive change cannot be expected to be witnessed. The underprivileged will be left to face the brunt of it, like they always have, despite so much money being put towards their upliftment.

Noble profession, people say its teaching. Is it actually so? ‘Teachers are next to god’, is written in the notebook of every 4th to 5th grade student. But for once try to draw a picture of a teacher on a paper, you will either make a woman dressed in an old sari with specs or an old man with a dull shirt and pants with specs again. A noble profession means the highest of all, most respected and most dedicating. Teaching is said so because they create all other professionals. All professionals went to a teacher to learn.

We grow to become successful person, we learn and we achieve what we aim. But who makes us this capable? It is the teacher who filled our mind with the knowledge of world. Teacher, a word that’s heard and instantly brings to life a thousand memories in your head. So, when was the last time you saw your teacher, did you speak to him? Or wish him, or asked about his well being? Or you choose to just pass like you did not know that old person walking by you?

Schools have become more of a business firm than a sacred place to gain education. Needless to say, we cannot compare the standards of a private school teacher with that of a public one.  Private schools charges heavy fees and lot of extra curriculum activities which requires more human resource and more teachers, but they don’t want to compromise with the profit earned by the school, as a result, they pay a lower salary compared to the amount of work done by the teachers. In government schools, the pay is comparatively lower but with a few facilities such as lunch and residential quarters (only in some places). However, the principals and managing directors are involved in the race of making their schools number one and compete with the international level focusing on the outer image and avoiding the inner important factors such as education and talented teachers. Shockingly, the pay scale in some places is comparatively lower than the fresher’s pay in call centers​!

Teachers dedicate their whole life teaching and preparing the future of the nation and what do they get in return? Pay is not the only issue the changing time has changed the values of society too. Students today have gone more shameless and with the support of their “rich” parents they now easily harass teachers. With the introduction of RTE ACT, 2009 teachers have become more helpless, as they cannot beat a child on his or her violent behavior.

Their identification is at stake at times! Just try to think of the last time you saw someone calling their teacher to any successful event like promotion, you mostly call your friends and families to celebrate, what about the person who made you this capable. Why to call a celebrity whom you don’t know, rather send an invite to the teacher who would be very proud to see you on your own? Its not about the events, its about the recognition of efforts put in by the teacher in making who you are.

Teachers in many countries are given much respect. In Germany, teachers get the highest apy and when the chancellor was questioned, Angela Merkel replied, “how can i compare you to those who taught you?” But in a country where teachers are seen and supposed to be treated like god, the condition is in contrast.

Let’s give them the respect that they deserve!

As a shock to the whole nation, an eight month old baby was brutally raped by her 28 year old cousin in Delhi. The baby suffered horrific internal injuries and is battling for her life in a hospital. Rape among children in India is on the rise. More than 50% of children in India experience some form of sexual abuse. If we don’t fight against sexual abuse now it can never be stopped.

It looks like the society has become very insensitive to such rape cases. We need to put an end to this rape culture. We need to reform our system and frame stricter laws to put an end to these horrific incidents. Who will bear the responsibility to reform the society?

People committing such monstrous acts need more exemplary punishment like death penalty. We should demand for a strong law to be passed against all rapists. A campaign to fight against rapes has been initiated by Swati Jaihind, Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women. She urges everyone to sign a letter to the Prime Minister of India to demand for a strong law to be passed against rapists.

Change is possible only when all of us join hands and work towards it. Let us raise our voice for a strong deterrence against rapes.

To support this fight against rape visit:

Letter to PM In English

‘My son will be an engineer’. Familiar words, aren’t they? The sentence could have been for a daughter, doctor or lawyer but the essence is same.

For a long time, these three major career options (science, commerce and arts) ruled the education sector but over the past few decades the pattern has gone through a little change. The increase in awareness among the students has lead to an overall evolution in the field of profession. Today students are selecting those careers which they think suits them the best. But has it really changed, or it needs to be worked on?

To start with somewhere, our education system also lacks the required freedom for a child to ‘grow’ and ‘learn’. The subjects are classified in three narrow categories- arts, commerce and science. And while choosing the career for themselves, Are student wise enough to make a sensible and informed decision for themselves? Because the study one get till, +2, are the basic concepts of board disciplines.

Where the mind of student got stuck after +2?

  • Most of the youth join graduation and then decides what they really want from life resulting in delay of a professional journey and unemployment which is not fruitful for a developing economy like India.
  • If we think about 10 years ago, hardly anyone had guts to stand in front of their parents and ask that they want to be a chef or singer or anything else apart from the three major professions. The reason here was lack of knowledge. Nobody knew back then the possibilities of opportunities apart from what was already established in the society and parents in India are highly protective for their child so, how can they let their child experiment with his new career opportunity.

Why has our society changed in choosing the right option?

But over a period of time, the society has accepted the change and even parents act supportive of their children’s decision and encourage them to challenge their limits.

  • Overcrowding in the regular professional fields has lead to a cut throat competition which will have only few winners and many losers,
  • The passion of a youngster for his work which slowly and gradually, youth is realizing.
  • The availability of right education and information.

Globalization which has lead to that needed exposure to the world has changed the view of youngsters. They can now see what is happening and how it is done in other countries and that is how they make their own opportunities. Internet is available in the hands of every youth today and it has worked wonder for them. It has introduced with many new practical profession that has changed the view of seeing the profession as work but to see it as something you like to do and have a passion for.

For instance, no one ever imagined that someone’s passion for art can make him a professional ‘tattoo designer’ or someone’s love for fitness can make him a ‘trainer’. Earning while enjoying your work is the biggest motivation for any employee and that is where they find success.

Mehvish Mustaq

Another stereotype that has been changed over the year is the believe that women cannot work and even if they do, they are only good for some profession such as teaching and doctoring. But over the years, this thought has also evolved. From women working in the corporate world (Amrita Gangotra-Airtel, Meena Ganesh-Tesco hindustan services and a long list) at renounced position to women working and succeeding in offbeat career options (Mary Kom-boxing, Mehvish Mustaq-app developer) they have changed how society looks at them.

When from selecting a coffee to selecting a dress, we have ample of choice then why not we have variety while selecting our career choice. The children today should be free to decide what they want and follow their passion sooner or later they will make a great career out of it. This evolution has caused a legendary change and why not. If we do what we love and get paid for it, it won’t be seen as a work and will never be a burden!

The Himalayas, a pristine and majestic sight. Millions of people marvel at the beauty of the imposing mountain ranges. It has great cultural and personal significance to many. It is the location for religious pilgrimages attracting large crowds. Others want to personally experience the magnificent sight they have only seen from a distance. For some the Himalayas represent a personal challenge to overcome by scaling its heights.

The Himalayas has been the “wall” for India since it’s creation by nature. The Himalayas are a carbon sink, serving to absorb a large portion of the carbon dioxide that we emit. Furthermore, it is home to rich biodiversity, in fact the eastern Himalayas are a global biodiversity hotspot. The Himalayan region is the reason that there is copious rainfall in the Ganga-Brahmaputra region. If the Himalayas were wiped out, that region would actually be a desert. The glaciers from the region spans eight countries and are the source of drinking water, hydroelectric power and irrigation for about 1.5 billion people. Suffice to say, if the Himalayas were affected, it would damage billions of people!

Causes of Destruction

This previously unspoiled region is now starting to slowly degrade. The main culprits for this damage are:

Pollution and Solid waste:

The air pollution caused by an increase in vehicle traffic, and the pollution caused by local sewage dumping are polluting the landscape. The solid waste dumping caused by developing infrastructure and meeting tourism demands are making the area vulnerable.

Hydroelectric power projects:

There are more than 400 hydroelectric power dams planned in the Himalayas in a power grab between India and China. These dams weaken the stability of the slopes causing landslides and eventually flashfloods. They also use tunnel drilling to change the water course. This encourages soil erosion and will lead to flashfloods.

Excessive dam construction in the region

Urbanization for tourism demands:

The booming tourist industry has caused a need for lodgings, which has led to a mass construction of buildings haphazardly without conforming to the environmental laws. The debris from the construction blocks vital areas, causing flash floods and damaging the ecology.

Infrastructure developments:

Infrastructural developments such as for military and tourism purposes have led to construction of roads and railways. It causes instability and ruins the habitats of animals and the sacred biodiversity of the area.

Cultural/Pilgrimage Tourism:

Hordes of people visit the Himalayas for pilgrimages and when they do so, there aren’t adequate measures made for waste disposal and transport. So this human traffic leads to erratic waste disposal and destroys what was once pristine.

A blind trust!


India has had rife deforestation throughout the country, and the Himalayas have not escaped this fate. The trees and vegetation has been cut down for lumber and to clear it for the infrastructural development. It has destroyed habitats and local biodiversity. We may have lost too much to ever get back.

Climate Change/Global Warming:

Climate change is perhaps one of the most damaging reasons for the degradation of the Himalayan region. It has caused melting glaciers, ice caps and it has led to overflowing lakes. Soon it will lead to water scarcity because we will no longer be able to depend on water flowing from the Himalayas. This has also affected the fauna of the region. Animals that are used to colder weather have had to move further up the mountains and when they don’t find food and other resources they are struggling to survive.

Being a Part of the Solution

However of course, there are steps we can take to slow down this process and hopefully eventually reverse the effects if it isn’t too late. Like:

  1. Banning plastic usage in the region.
  2. Enlisting the tourists and pilgrims to work in conservation efforts as a part of their trip. It will help reverse the effects they have been causing.
  3. Changing the way garbage is disposed in the area.
  4. Halting the deforestation schemes and bringing the entire region under environmental protection.
  5. All tourism in the area should shift into following eco-tourism guidelines.
  6. Whenever lodgings are built, encourage bamboo and log huts, because they won’t spoil the integrity of the land with cement and other unfriendly materials.

But the most important contribution from our side to the wall would be: Don’t Turn a Blind Eye

There are no adequate words to describe the importance or destruction of this region. The landscapes and territories that we take for granted, may no longer exist for our perusal. We can continue to turn a blind eye to the damage we have caused. But we will only realize the extent of our loss when what we cherished is gone. So, let’s work, before it’s too late!
