  1. Hi,
    Its pathetic that we convert most of our lakes into junk yards. If we do not protest against these enroachments and waste dumpings now, we might never be able to get the lake back. Public have to be educated on maintaining the lake not only for the flora and fauna, but also for the ground water level.

  2. You are absolutely right friend. Wetlands (and forests) are our sponges that absorb water when we need and release it when we need.
