Rampant Hill Constructions in Mulshi, Pune

Posted by संदीप नारायण शेळके on August 28, 2011

I was on outing on 26 August 2011 in the Mulshi area of Pune, Maharashtra with my family. This is an area, Sahyadri mountains, blessed with excellent monsoon and unmatched greenery with tough mountains, once ruled by his excellency Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. This is a place which supplies nearly 50% of the water requirement of Pune. It also has a power generation plant by Tatas.

Today the very hills which bring the rain water to reservoirs are being cut, dug, leveled to build houses, companies, hotels and what not. Please see some sites by yourself. The whole area is being commercially exploited under the guise of development.

It shook me to the core. What kind of Humans are these people. Let alone preservation these people are invading the very nature which houses enormous natural life and attracts tourists. Local residents would understand the value once the lose the greenery. A few moneybags are looting us in broad daylight. This is shameful and very disturbing.

Jai Bharat!

    i think, u havent seen the lavasa.. my heard bleeded, when i saw the pictures raping the nature in that serene bio-sphere..

    the colonisation of land is one of the root cause of such activities.. most urbanites think, that every inch of land belong to all indians.. and this idiocracy has lead them to colonise these nature..

  2. Agree. Lavasa and the new upcoming Nanded city near Khadakvasla dam will cause sever water supply issues. Since these very townships are on the banks of water lakes and would definitely steal it from farmers and citizens.

    It bleeds heart to see the rape of nature openly in guise of development.

    Jai Bharat!
