Our World Tuesday, 

New look of the hill scape!

We've reached hills for our  annual short stay during summers. Here the weather is cool, breezy and invigorating. The after effects of intense cold of past few months are evident partly. The new shoots are sprouting on pine trees. However,  large variety of sundry bushes, trees and flowers  already look fresh donning thick green new leaves. 
While scanning the area from the balcony of the apartment,which is built on top of a hill overlooking a narrow valley, I saw the above scene. Concrete unplanned  jungle is overpowering the fragile ecology of hills all over Himachal Pradesh. Trees have been felled mercilessly by the locals as well as  the builders. Commerce has overshadowed all other considerations. It is the joint responsibility of the residents as well as the administration to implement laws for preventing the abuse of the forest cover at least in the future.

Only one picture this time,because the slow  internet speed is  making it  difficult and time consuming to upload.

 Friends welcome here as always!
