'H' is for hills and  habitation:




Houses stand cheek by jowl on the hill slopes at Solan (Himachal Pradesh). This is one such scene amongst many at Solan. It is one of the thickly populated towns of (H.P).

  1. Multi-stories have sprung up on the hills it seems!

  2. This is exactly what breaks my heart. Seen from a distance, houses and buildings in previously pristine places like Shillong and Ooty appear like shoddy shoe-boxes piled upon and mashed up in haste.
    There should be a legislation that prevents people from stripping hills like this. In 20 years, the hills you see in the background will have houses too..
    Nice pic but a reality shock.

    1. This is really alarming. Time to ponder and take effective measures before it is too late.

  3. Eyesore indeed but where will this bursting population live?
    Great capture.

  4. It looks so congested - I think I would feel claustrophobic there. But it's an interesting view of the world.

  8. Great capture and view! But what disappoints was to see a concrete jungle in place of green... the hill stations here are also turning the same way.

  11. The buildings seem to blend in with the hills. I cannot imagine living in such close conditions.

  13. I think I would feel awfully claustrophobic living there. Great photo, though.

  14. No doubt it looks like a cute box from far...but I wonder how people would be faring living in such closed space. Also, being on a mountain I fear a catastrophe !!

    Great click, Uppaljee.

    Pleasure to have you on board.
