• Save 274 acres of Botanical Garden reserve forest land from Eco-tourism project
    Botanical Garden is the only green space available in vicinity for many walkers, meditator's and martial art seekers in the early mornings to fill their lungs with purest air , embracing peace by listening to various birds and witnessing the early rays of sun, its a reserve of many medicinal plants helping many biologists for their research and provides opportunity to enlighten many school kids with a real plant kingdom. 274 acres of reserve forest land was diverted for this "eco tourism project". Now, in the name of "visitors ameneties", a 400 room hotel with swimming pool, gym, beauty parlor etc, 2500 capacity convention center, pre function hall, a mall(shopping area of 6,64,00 sq. ft), multiplex, etc are coming up in this site. All the thousands of trees which took minimum of 15 years to grow into such huge entities deserve to be loved and protected. 30 years effort of silent plant growth should not be pulled down in a days span for sake of currency. This nature which we witness today should be preserved for our as well as future generations.

  • Stop Destruction of River Sal in Goa! Builders, build responsibly! Beware of people's power!
    Your timely intervention is essentially important so as to prevent and or to stop the prospective mega-builders from further damaging our fragile environment through their mega-housing projects. To further allow mega-builders to irresponsibly pursue with the construction of residential flats is to blindly encourage the same to destroy our village environment as succinctly explained above. To coolly and blindly ignore the same is to invite socio-environmental disaster in the village, and the ensuing damage done will be beyond redemption, and that to our sorrow and much disappointment. It needs to be cautiously noted that the upcoming mega-housing project planned by the Raheja builders is to be located very close to the bank of the River Sal in Carmona, Salcette, Goa. Undoubtedly, any mega-housing project in the proximity of the river is definitely bound to disrupt the immediate environment and ecological balance, as well as adversely pollute and eventually destroy all aquatic life of river Sal. Subsequently, those nearby villagers depending upon a nominal fishing occupation for their sustenance are going to be economically badly affected. Even otherwise, river Sal and its immediate surroundings are definitely going to be disrupted as pointed out above and on this indisputable count alone the construction of mega-housing projects in our small village should be logically strongly opposed and or banned, once for all! At the cost of repeating, pollution of River Sal and the consequent environmental damage subsequent to the construction of Rahejas mega-housing project is inevitable. It needs to be kept in mind that the proposed Drainage/Sewage system of Rahejas project under consideration is technically inappropriate according to experts, and the Locals believe that the damage done to the "River Sal" and its surroundings will definitely affect the village life gravely and, perhaps, even beyond restoration to its original condition. Moreover, my village is currently facing acute water-shortage problems and also it is subjected to repeated power failures. And, if the proposed mega-housing project by the Rahejas is blindly allowed to materialize, then the ensuing increase in population in the village will not only just hamper the quality and quantity of our drinking water supply but also eventually destroy the environment and the river life through its pollution. A significant number of concerned people in my village and I have been fighting the battle against mega-builders and their evildoers for more than seven years, with the sole noble objective to save river Sal and sustain the environment in our village from being adversely damaged. Logically, to achieve this attainable goal, your unconditional help and valuable support by signing this petition is herein solicited with much gratitude! Time and again, we have approached the builders to bring to their attention as to how any mega-housing project close to the banks of River Sal would adversely affect the environment and the river Sal as well as discussed with them how the ensuing sewage/garbage problems could affect the village even if the same are attempted to be resolved in a more sustainable way; and, that the builders should not go ahead with any construction just to make much profit and build up their financial empire in Mumbai at the cost of sacrificing the village life by deliberately damaging the surrounding areas and their environment which have been well sustained by the locals for generations. Unfortunately for the villagers, the representative/s of the builders did not show any signs of concern and, instead, only replied "we will get it done, the way we want it", and for which purpose they have the money- and muscle-power to mobilize the support of vulnerable corrupt men when in power at the Village Panchayat level, and or more, at the Governmental level. Notwithstanding the firm determination of the builders to pursue their ignoble dream of getting richer and richer through their irresponsible plans to build mega-housing projects, we need to zealously pursue the noble goal of protecting our village, and saving it for our children and future generations. Friends and co-villagers, help me fight this battle and help ourselves keep this village safe and clean, and thereby let us set an example for other Goans as well to fight similar battles and keep Goa safe and sound, and preserve its scarce land and natural resources exclusively and rightly for the benefit of the native people of Goa and of our children and future generations. As such, kindly Sign, and also widely Share this Petition with others concerned, Online! Many Many Thanks for your concern, and for your unconditional support and prayers!

  • THE HIMALAYAS URGENTLY NEED AN ALTERNATE DEVELOPMENT PLAN
    The Himalayas are our greatest heritage. They are storehouses of biodiversity and natural resources which have sustained life in the mountains as well as the plains for centuries. Some of the largest river-systems and basins in the world which have sources here, provide our country with 60% of its water requirement. It’s 9000 plus glaciers and high altitude lake store about 12000 km3 of fresh water. About 1,200,00 million m3 of water flow from its rivers ever year which sustains the great Indo-Gangetic alluvial plains providing food for the rest of the country. The dense forests have been able to reduce carbon emissions by over 20%, a key factor in mitigating and controlling climate change. The Himalayan region contains states of diverse cultures and communities whose lives and livelihood are intricately woven with these mountains.

  • If a tourist enters a national park/protected forest area then they must plant a tree.
    There is a need to preserve nature. This is felt by all tourists visiting national parks and forest reserves and other secluded places to enjoy nature. Hence they are acutely aware that nature needs to be preserved now so that their children can enjoy nature too. I am sure that every tourist will be happy to spend a little money to see their planted sapling grow into a healthy tree. So they will not be averse to this plan. This effort will also help the local people living around forest to get a small source of income. My fellow trekkers !! I feel its time we contribute to our state-country and the worlds beauty by planting more trees whenever we step out of our doors on a trip or tour. We should no longer selfishly enjoy mother nature beauty but also should actively contribute by making it even more beautiful. A single tree can produce more than 100kgs of oxygen and consume greater than 70kgs of carbon dioxide. We can beat the harmful effects of harmful gases in our atmosphere and ensure a pollution free environment. Because it is well known that trees can reduce pollution and also increase the likelihood of rain. Plus imagine the number of animals a single tree provides shelter ! you will be saving those animals from extinction.

  • save the western ghats
    Our western ghats are filled with a variety of plants, herbs and home to some endangered birds and animals. Recently, some new species of insects and fishes were discovered by ecologist in goa, karnataka, lavasa and near by areas. These ghats are the pride of maharashtra, goa, karnataka and some parts of gujarat. If the government is not able to handle the situation and takes no necessary action to stop as well as to control these criminal activities, the day is not very far from disaster. All Mining work is destroying the forests and sea where as dams and human encroachments are killing insects, birds, water life and animals. One of the best hill stations of western ghats is Ooty and is famous for its beauty but now its turning into a garbage dump due to humans.! No Western Ghats- No Life.

    plants are very important for life in earth plants are even known to relate to the moods and behaviors of the people they’re growing around! For example, an angry or hostile gardener will cause his or her plants to wilt, shrink and even die, while a gardener who speaks to his or her plants encouragingly and in a soothing voice, and approaches them with true appreciation and affection, will make them grow strong and beautiful.1 Read more: Plant Power: Keeping Our Green Friends Happy http://www.kidzworld.com/article/17187-plant-power-keeping-our-green-friends-happy#ixzz2acExTI8W

  • TTD to stop using plastic bags for Laddu prasad
    Dear EO sir, Plastic is harmful to environment. It takes more than 100years to decompose in the environment. The production of plastic is harmful to the environment. Plastic is made from petroleum and the refining process puts a lot of toxins into the earth's atmosphere. Around 50,000 pilgrims visit the main temple every day. it creates huge plastic wastage.
