Slippery Slope

Sir – The Himalayan mountain range faces serious environmental threats. If measures are not taken immediately for its preservation, it may lead to devastation in the surrounding areas. The assumption that the administration is still unaware of the grim situation is untenable. Natural disasters have become a routine occurrence in the Himalayas. In spite of this, local administrations continue to issue permits to build hotels and resorts in places like Patnitop, Gulmarg and Sonamarg. If these places are hit by a natural disaster, countless lives will be lost. The government must take steps to conserve the ecosystem of the mountains.
Yours faithfully,
