I have been on a mission lately and I am happy. But the fact that things are not moving as I anticipated has me working harder on this. I had done a post on Save Seawood lake a few days ago.I was trying to send out emails and increase awareness about this project apart from scouting for people in the media who could help.
It is depressing to see real estate developers encroaching this lake by dumping debris and wanting to alter the natural landscape of this part of Mumbai.
Save Seawood Lake, dedicated for this project. HERE. (I did not have an account on facebook. But I joined in to be a part of this group. So I request you to make an effort and join this group...every vote counts!).
I wanted to share this information about the lake and the project. Inspite of all my research, I am sure I couldn't written in better than Rajee herself. I quote the information stated on facebook page for the group.
By joining this group you will prove that protection of our environment is of utmost urgency ... we don't need scientist to warn us time and again ... deepdown we all know.The polar caps are melting ... sea levels are rising ... tsunamis are no longer stuff of sci-fi movies.... the rains are diappearing ... winters are shorter or lost in many parts ... rainforests are diappearing ... what more.
Help save this lake its part of our environment ...our Earth ... lets mend our ways ... one step at a time... this may be our only chance ... we haven't yet got another place to go."
