THE TREES OF BANGALURU AND MYSURU ARE TOGETHER GENERATING AN ANNUAL REVENUE OF MORE THAN THREE TRILLION 2009 RUPEES: PROHIBIT TREE CUTTING EVEN FOR A GOOD REASON
Right now unneeded road widening of Kanthraj Urs Road in Namma Mysuru is going on so heavy traffic can ply where once residents enjoyed a huge set of spacious foot paths. The 24 hour traffic will then destroy the majestic trees which on google map are now showing their proud crowns -what a green thick foliage of shade and coolth and purity of waft!
Bangalore and Mysore(and all other likes) need a tree authority within an overarching policy on normal living. Hacking away old trees for broadening roads is the worst form of crass consumerism. We need trees. An audit of Bangalore's trees has shown that (Bangalore)Bengaluru meets the need of drinking water entirely by its trees: See http://practicethevedas.blogspot.com/ In the process it generates a water cash flow annually amounting to three trillion rupees! Proportionately Mysuru's trees are contributing more than all its water needs for drinking and generating an annual cash flow of a quater trillion rupees. Thus the general milieu has lost its veneration for trees within an overarching crass materialistic consumerism based upon killing life's enduring healthy ways. Practice again normal ways by production,consumption and return. Work where you live. Return everything in a usable way that you take from the earth. Stop the idiocy of copying modern civilisation. Prohibit the use of personal transport by making public transport viable with an overarching way of small self sufficient communities.
Looking at what modernism has come to(exterminating life), Mahatma Gandhi rings a bell: At the begin of the last century he proclaimed prophetically:"The West can meet the East when she throws overboard almost the whole of modern civilisation(exporting and importing everything everywhere and thereafter running away to other continents or planets which support life); the West can also meet the East when the the East embraces modern civilisation. But that will be an armed truce."
Bengaluru's trees are having the same capacity as the Sharavathi dam(4.3 Billion cubic meters). But they reproduce NON-CLONALLY and forever preserve life, defying gravity on earth(!) through osmosis and the sun's fusions. Thats the normal way: To do away with 2% percent efficiency modern civilisation and ushering in a zero cost normalcy where infinite efficiency energy systems hold the sway(with the help of life via the sun, situated safely 150 million kilometers away).
Dams are not a solution. There are a disaster. Electrical load demands are met by hydrogenerators the world over and many are simultaneously responding to simultANEOUS load demands across CONTINENTS. This is causing worldwide earthQUAKES with consequent mass deaths and destruction, the general heating up of the earth, fires,floods,ice melts,breaking up the Antarctic and Arctic, CYCLONES, landslides and diseases. See what happened and is happening in Central Italy? Remember the 12th May 2008 Sichuan quake in China? And the 26th December 2004 Andamans Sumatra Great Earthquake and Tsunami? And the 26th January 2001 Kutch Bhuj Earthquake?
Trees, by creating an automatic atmospheric distribution network in proportion to the density of tree cover and defying gravity intrinsically control water flow including groundwater recharge. Trees are the solution to our water and other problems of living.
Quickly regenerate the World's forests even with the help of existing dams and People's Cooperatives which enjoy the fruits of their labour, so life can be saved in health and the habitats restored for a long time and the dams finally made redundant.
