A river, bundh, paddy field. Souls in a village 300. SL - power of attorney changed, greed, selfishness. Embankments are built, hills are flattened, the rubble dumped into marsh. And now, village crams more than 3,00,000 souls. Load capacity of the village increases. Most of them are not natives. The fabric of the village is torn apart.
Now, there are several reasons: inadequate drainage rebuffed by a high tide, certainly, but also the hunger for space - too much land built upon; the reclaiming in recent years, often illegally, of mangroves and floodplains that act as natural safeguards.
Today, the one commodity in Goa costlier than gold is real estate, and our own fellows are into it. There is a kind of unbridled desire to keep building - which has dangerous implications for the future of our villages. When you build on stream and river beds, you block off natural channels that divert water. By cementing over areas, you don’t allow percolation. If high tide and heavy rains come together, you are really calling for a disaster. It is almost as if the village doesn’t remember where it came from.
Explaining through personal experiences.
All of this has occurred due to the demonic Mundkar/Tenant Act, imposed by the Indian régime.
Who are IEK (Indigenous Ecological Knowledge) qualified now? Just a handful...
