    Very informative write up Urbashi. This article should serve as an alarm to all of us and the authorities, who know what is happening but not doing enough to right the wrong. And while the authorities notice this and start planning grand schemes and solutions, perhaps they can distribute tree saplings on regular intervals to the villagers and encourage them to plant two for every tree that goes down. The saplings will keep growing and the villagers more will be more aware and proactive by the time the schemes are implemented. Just my thoughts.

    Properly planned resource utilisation, keeping long term consequences in mind, has to be the goal of everyone concerned. The locals deserve not only a life of their own choice but better living conditions too. A perfectly balanced system is hard to reach but is quite worth the (joint) effort.
