Every day we hear about aggresive mining of Granite for making crores of rupees. Greedy irresponsible people who don't care about future of the country make huge mountain disappear. Mountains are there for a reason. They are very important resource for the country. They provide minerals to the ecosystem. By mining aggressively along with cutting numerous trees these people for sure, will turn the nation into a desert. In doing so, they affect the health of poor people who work there. Mining causes to release dust and radon gas that are inhaled by poor workers which affects their lungs that leads to lung cancer. Mining also can cause voids, affecting balances in rocks that leads to seismic waves which induces earth quakes. Environment and Health deteriorates because of such mining practices. With all that money, they and their future generations will be only enjoying the Desert Environment in the future. Rocks are very important for soil formation. Also it is equally worse to remove sand and soil from river beds. I see pictures of huge machines removing loads of very important soil resources from the river. This will not only affect the environment but also affect the country's economy. These people think they can make more money by mining to last soil particle, but what they ignore is the future of the country and its people. Hey illegal mining People -  STOP illegal mining and soil removal  immediately, at least for the sake of your own grand children, if not for the great country.

Good thing that these huge Granite mountains are out of your reach :-).
Yosemite - El Capitan - The granite monolith:

Yosemite - Half Dome - A Granite Dome:
You should read how these wondeful granite mountains have been saved and secured - National Parks.

All we see and hear is that granites are mined beyond limits, River soils and sands are removed at unprecedented levels, Trees and forest are destructed at alarming rates. Human resources are depleted by government supplies of liquor.  Corruption everywhere as that of 2G SCAMS.
OH MY GOD: Once again stop all the above negatives including - STOP AGGRESSIVE MINING for GRANITE and SAND REMOVAL FROM RIVER BEDS. If not it is going to affect you and your future generations also.

It is been a while I posted. I was on tour to South Western USA (California, Nevada and Arizona). I had the chance to see the
Mojave Desert,
Yosemite Valley
and the Grand Canyon.
Enjoyed every minute of the nature tour and the different Biomes. Each time you see these places, it looks different. I had a chance to take a snap with statue of John Muir,

one of pioneer Environmentalist. Because of him everyone could enjoy these Natural National Parks. Grand Sequoia Trees
are unimaginable and one feel the greatness of them when you are close to them. These giant trees grow from a small seed. Year by year they store their history as rings and grow into these grand giant trees. All over the parks there are different kinds of trees and when you are there, you breathe fresh air and you feel healthy. One thing I noticed during the national park tours is they strongly insist to never even take anything from these areas, which is good. These parks will be preserved forever and future generations can enjoy. Meanwhile I read, in a wildlife sanctuary and a place I love in India, several teak trees were felled. It saddened me. These teak trees are also oldest trees in India. Just some greedy mongrels for getting money cut those several year old trees. These fools don't even know what they have done. They should at least replace the trees they cut.  When trees are gone, rains are gone. It was worst monsoon this year. Saw the photos of Cauvery river without water for Adi 18th festival. It is getting worst and worst. People should take care of the trees. If not these areas will turn into a desert.  I have experienced the coolness of the tree's shadow during hot summer. Even now I feel proud to see the grown up trees at Viswadeepthi School and Bharathiar University which we planted as small saplings.
Take care of the trees.
At EAFarms we are following Green economy policies, local community is hired to perform farm activities whenever required. Also, since we practice natural farming, chemical substances in any form such as fertilizer, pesticides etc are not used and hence the worker's health is preserved. We have also planted several important trees and they are growing as we anticipated. Praying to  God to save the trees everywhere on the Earth.
