Uttarakhand that witnessed one of the worst natural disasters in June 2013 caused by cloud burst & landslides leading to loss of thousands of lives and displacement of many more. Environmentalists have attributed this catastrophe to reckless and unscientific developmental activities. The landscape of this beautiful himalayan state has over the years become extremely fragile with large-scale mining & mindless real estate development to benefit the privileged few. The glaciers of the state are gradually melting, the flora & fauna thinning & the people of the state continuing to lack basic amenities like education, electricity and employment.
