  • This is a very sad situation

    This is a very sad situation which has gripped the nation and also our state. in the name of development we are destroying anything and everything which is natural and replacing them with artificial trees and bio-mimicry houses( read bio mutated). As an architect I had the opportunity to visit Rose Valley resort in my student days as a group case study and learned very prominently it was designed by one of the JU professors at that time. It pains me to see that all this mindless building for entertainment are done by professionals and educationists who do not have any ethical moral responsibility to give nature its due respect. It permeates through to the new generation of architects and students alike. I think the key to the problem is moral and ethical unity which needs to be ingrained within the future generation. As a student of regional landscape planning, i have now become enlightened about the richness of the true joy that you get when you are at nature's lap and take in all its nuances.
    It is time for creating a revolution in the young minds who otherwise would become robots by the thousands, doing builders bidding.

  • Very informative article.....all the information provided is correct. I too paid a visit last week and saw the pitiable condition of the beach. The tourists they were harming the marine life especially the red crabs. According to the locals a decade ago the whole area was covered with screwpines and originally it was a village named MANDARMANI. Now everything has been devastated. Now there are only a handful number of crabs residing at one corner of the beach near the TAJPUR ESTUARY. I think that after another decade the crabs will no more be there. The same thing happened with the PURI , DIGHA , CHENNAI , VIZAG sea beaches. Now there are no more crabs found in these beaches. We humans are destroying their natural habitat. I was burdened with the feeling of guilt and more than that because I couldn't do anything. We concerned people should raise our voices against this. I think that we can inform the state marine protection department about this thing. We must not construct any more resorts nor concrete walls and should let the sea flow......THIS THING MUST BE RESOLVED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE & WE MUST GET FULL SUPPORT FROM THE GOVERNMENT FOR TAKING LEGAL ACTIONS.........
