♦️Chheda Nagar Reserved Forest Being Destroyed♦️
?It will soon be neither RESERVED nor a FOREST?
♦️One can witness the death of a magical world right in front of one’s eyes in Chembur’s Chheda Nagar on #THERKBSHOW on #NEWSWORLDINDIA with #RKB , Adv Pradeep Nambiar, activist #NandakumarPawar and others♦️
?A beautiful, enchanting, magical wetland in the Reserved Forest being slowly but surely and systematically strangulated by the simple strategy of pouring construction debris in the inter tidal channels!?
?The Mangroves are dying?
?The Wetland is drying up?
?And soon the swamp hens, long necked ibises, egrets, cormorants, ducks, swamp herons will be a thing of the past ?
?And Chembur that’s already like Dante’s Inferno will endure the fires of purgatory for aeons …
?Will you help us save the Reserved (that’s irony itself…Reserved) Forest at Chheda Nagar, Chembur
♦️Or shall we just bear silent witness to another world lost?
?Why does no political party ever talk about the dying Mangroves?
?The destruction of the inter-tidal ecosystem?
?How the Mangroves protect a city?
♦️If forests are the lungs of a city, the Mangroves are it’s kidneys
♦️And the forests are being decimated
♦️The Mangroves are being murdered
♦️In effect our coastal cities will soon be without lungs, without kidneys!
?What are we doing??
