This is regarding the illegal attempt to chop off a healthy tree in Chandralok Colony by one Mr. Singh without the requisite permission from the forest officer. When I objected to it I was clearly threatened to not interfere where as the tree is public property. There has been a previous occurence of the same type by the same gentleman. Please advise what to do as I clearly object to this activity and misbehaviour. I have a video of the tree having green leaves and yet being said it is dead on false ground just to make money out of the sale. Please send the DFO'S phone number to lodge an official and legal complaint.

11 healthy trees were cut down in Indira Nagar Colony in last couple of days.........any one who saw those helpless trees were shocked as they were perfectly all healthy grown up tress without any disease.........wen asked concern authorities , we came to know that local resident of Indira Nagar along with local PARSHAD were involved in such brutal activities. I asked one question to Indira Nagar Residents who were responsible for such ::::::::-------- either you dont you like trees or you are not aware of there productive benefits on human beings and environment...........might happen due to less knowledge.........Only reason they provide who question them was " it may fall down on my house" ..........my dear freinds any thing happen in this world at any time........ so pl save trees atleast if cannt do else...

Dear CFGD, I have lived in doon for five years when I pursued my BALLB(H) from UPES, Dehradun between 2010-2015 and am aware of the activities conducted by this organisation and genuinely appreciate the effort in furtherance of environment protection. Even I have been a part of CFGD and participated in few events when I was in doon. We (me and friends)have formed a group called "Gifting Nature" which works for inculcating plantation habits and this teacher's day we have planned a mass plantation across the nation for which we have prepared a write up which we wanted to share with CFGD and also seek your support for taking forward this initiative. Kindly revert so that we can collectively work for this noble initiative. Thanking You. UDIT RAJ SHARMA raj.udit4@gmail.com

THE DOON THAT WAS AND SHOULD BE. We, who love Dehradun, keep cribbing, complaining and reminiscing about the clean, green, safe healthy & salubrious Doon, almost every day. This naturally endowed terrain; a pocket of green & health, between two mountain ranges and two major rivers; a region of much rain and much sun shine is unique and rare. But have we ever analysed the causes and thought of ways to reverse this loss or at least retrieve as much as possible? Many of us who came to Dehradun in the past fell in love with the valley and decided to settle down. Most among us unfortunately started exploiting the attributes of the valley to get rich. It is we who started to sell our Dehradun to the unscrupulous who now dominate and are ruining the culture & flora-fauna of this gift of nature. Becoming a capital city has further driven many nails to its coffin. Now it is hardly breathing in the fresh air it used to. The sudden influx of migrants from the neighbouring states, rural area and the hills has added to the pollution by way of smog, din, traffic, litter & congestion. The migrants seem to carry the impression that they have come out of their small villages to a big village called Dehradun. The municipality of the erstwhile city was happily managing the load. They were approachable, and their people, being from the city itself, were conscious of the needs of the city and the valley. But the imposition of other administrative and governing agencies like MDDA, Jal Nigam, UPCL, PWD etc has made the municipality ineffective. These other organisations have been flushed with the so called qualified staff, imported from outside. They have no concern for the Doon culture but are in those positions only to further their own motives. Enumerating these motives would be to antagonise the politicians and builders, on whom, unfortunately, we have come to depend for preserving our Doonness. I wonder why our governments and administration have a fixation that progress is connected with Industrialisation only. Doon valley could have done without these. The industrialisation might have added to the states exchequer but has resulted in polluting the atmosphere & the terrain and used up our resources of land, water and power. The influx of outside experts have also strained our civic services. We should have instead developed our greens as resorts/holiday homes/hotels/ sporting facilities because of which the valley earned its sobriquet as the invigorating, salubrious, picturesque, a valley where every spot is a picnic spot. The green produce of Dehradun like the internationally famous Basmati, Litchis, fields of sweeter sugar canes & the first tea gardens of our country; have now been replaced by factories, commercial & residential buildings. The valley could have become a flower and fruit garden and nursery for the nation. The authorities, instead of defining the open-built up ratio in their building byelaws, should have defined Green Grey ( Open Garden vs Cement building) ratio for all constructions works. Just developing the ecological endowments more aesthetically in the surrounding hills, forests and rivulets & keeping these free from encroachments and dumping of polythene garbage could have brought a lot more of tourism and jobs for our residents & consequent prosperity. We who love the Doon should now at least raise a lot of hue and cry through writings, the media & demonstrations against this plundering. We, amongst whom are many experienced professionals who have roamed the nation and the world, realize how potential is our Doon , may regularly & aggressively come out with criticism & suggestions to arouse the conscience of our residents. Let our writings be also educative and constructive. I feel, that the people, fed up with all the stress of modernization, would look for quiet salubrious-languorous- close to nature places, to come and spend some time. Dehradun could be that place, a real eco-tourist destination in the lap of Himalayas. However we have to still get out of the present day ignorance and inertia to make our city a tidy, meticulously organized and completely healthy one. It is with this aim that I plan to bring to focus of our citizens, various aspects of our city. I submit here a series of write ups, technically braced, to make the authorities see light. Through your journalistic standing in Dehradun & your connections I hope to arouse the conscience of those who matter. I am listing below the various topics that I plan to cover in subsequent write ups. I am not interested in any laurels for this but the well being of this precious gift of nature. 1. The Roads & Lanes. 2. Canals and Natural Drainage . 3. The Traffic Control. 4. Residential Complexes Development. 5. Electricity Supply & Dependency on Conventional Sources of Energy. 6. Noise Pollution. 7. Atmospheric Pollution. 8. Sewage & Garbage Disposal. 9. Radiation Pollution. 10. Tourism. We hear that Dehradun has been chosen to be one of the pioneering SMART Cities of Bharat. The definition available on line defines a SMART city as the one which has imbibed digital technology to develop SIX factors. viz. Smart Economy. Smart Mobility. Smart Environment. Smart People. Smart Living. & Smart Governance. The chart above indicates the thrust activities for each of these factors It may not be possible for the reader to immediately understand the complexity of such an effort. It is for our Government and administration to study and develop the city on these lines. Recently in one of the news journals we read some one comparing Dehradun as a Metro with a lot of Hills. But then would we, who love Dehradun, want it to become Metro like? Would becoming SMART help us to get our Dehradun back? Perhaps being SMART is the fashion for a capital city. Do we want this to happen to our Dehradun? We who love Dehradun should force the government to take this Capital elsewhere. I feel there should be some pockets in the entire world, which should be left untouched by human interference. Places where we human beings live close to nature and nature is not modified to suit our conveniences and desire for modernity. I wish our Dehradun could be one of those pockets. So even if we do accept our Dehradun to be subjected to becoming SMART it has to be keeping in its plan the natural assets of the valley. Delhi or Mumbai or Chennai or even Bangalurus standards of smartness may not apply here. We should see to it. ____________________________________________________________________________________ SMART GOVERNANCE. Creating the Awareness and Atmosphere for Unified Control. Take an example of our cities roads and lanes. Do we know who is responsible for construction and maintenance of roads and lanes within the city? Some time we find MDDA working, some time the Municipality, sometime PWD and some time being privately repaired or resurfaced by some local MLA from their Vidhayak Nidhi. The confusion does not end here. Soon after a road is repaired someone digs up a trench or a hole to lay a new cable or pipe or repair a leak. It remains unrepaired after that for weeks and months. Some time a road or lane is widened without the electric poles being shifted, the widening then becomes redundant and unusable except for parking purposes or cart vendors to start their sale or perhaps a place to dump local garbage. IS THAT ACCEPTABLE? I can quote another instance of lack of coordination. Come the season, we call vanamahotsva; some enthusiastic citizens, with the help of forest department plant avenue trees along a road or lane. Without knowing the shade or flowering ability, the shedding cycle of leaves of the tree or the height it would gain on full maturity. More often than not such planting takes place right under an over head electric line strung on poles. Thus starts a recurring struggle between the electricity department who keep lopping and pruning the tree and the tree lovers or forest department who vehemently object to it. The same lovers of tree then blame the electricity department for so frequent breakdowns in the supply of power. Therefore we who love the Doon have to work hard to create educated awareness and atmosphere in this city & its surroundings in order to kick start resurgence to bring back the Doon that was. We may think in terms of Poster campaign, workshops, processions, TV documentaries & discussions and interaction with our administrative echelons. We have to make our state government also aware of this movement because it is they who would eventually be with us or against us. We may also get environmentalists of repute of our nation as well as of the world involved in this movement. A tall task, but a beginning has to be made somewhere. To start with we have to proceed against many odds to change the administrative work ethics of our city. We must base our effort on one single dictum. We should not imitate other cities or region of our land. We may also not follow trends but be a trend setter. Therefore we have to innovate. We should start with the methods of administration that we are being subjected to like any other city of this country. Ours should be terrain, ecology and environmental centric. We have a municipality, a development authority, a potable water supplier, a sewage disposal provider, a department to look after all the civil works, electricity supplier, controller of provisions and public utility systems etc. We also have a district magistrate to oversee all of them. Yet the city is unable to cope with the influx of people to this city. The builders, local and outside, are having a field day converting our GREEN VALLEY into a GREY one. We have to have a unified command and control of administration in this city. How can a person of authority as DM or vice chairman of MDDA or a CE of PWD or that of Jal Nigam who does not belong to Dehradun understand its peculiar needs? Also these government officers get more involved in catering to the whims and fancies of their political bosses. I feel the most suitable person to singly control all these services is a dedicated Commissioner/Mayor/ CEO of Municipal Corporation selected/elected ( not nominated by the government) necessarily from the city or thereabouts. E- Governance. For smart governance under the leadership of this CEO, it would be essential that all departments, providing services to the city of Greater Dehradun, are inter connected through round the clock Local Area Net work. This net work would be manned, monitored, controlled and used to disseminate for appropriate action; on all feed backs, plans, complaints based on data base. Especially the daily progress on public works would be centrally monitored and coordinated. It may perhaps be ideal to invest in a master computer server to cater to all the aspects of this city, viz. 1. Revenue. 2. Planning. 3. Contracting. 4. Execution. 5. Monitoring. 6. Coordinating. 7. Dispensing and collecting information. 8. Media coverage. Etc. Perhaps the services of management experts would be needed to set up this system typically suited to Dehradun and its suburbs. A brain storming would be needed amongst the Doon lovers for evolving this system. ___________________________________________________________________________ SMART MOBILITY . Transportation within the city and surroundings. The many science fiction writings and films are based on the premise that in future humans would live in communes based in very high rise accommodations and communicate through air corridors on laser beams. Living in single floor houses or independent bungalows would be a distant history. This concept is based on an ecological disaster which renders people without naturally sustained greenery and ambience. Therefore by apartment living we do not reduce space under concrete, but render the rest of space unusable for any other purpose , even for greening ( Space for parking, creating additional services etc). We, who love our Doon cannot conceive such a situation to occur here ever. One can see the beginning of this disastrous occurrence in the many apartment housing that is coming up in places where there were independent bungalows surrounded by orchard and well tended gardens. The concentration of humans (density of residential buildings) has strained the public services being provided by our authorities. Keeping our ecology in mind should this be allowed unchecked? Therefore our most preferred public mobility would be provided by the most standard road system. Later, may be magnetic levitated monorail system. We cannot afford to accommodate metro rail system because it takes too much of space by way of heavy concrete structures. The trolley system may be used only to negotiate steep rises. Other than these nothing else. Even on roads we should change over and strictly implement use of motor transport which are not based on petroleum but ecologically friendly hydrogen gas or storage batteries or mechanically efficient human driven transport system. We may even think of bringing back improved Tongas or Buggies. This public transport system should be so comfortable-inexpensive- trustworthy that we, the citizens, would prefer to travel by these, within the city or even through the valley, than our own petroleum based transport. I feel this would add to our citys smartness appropriate to our environment. In our democratic country we cannot deny a constitutional right of our countrymen to choose to settle in place of their liking (except in J&K). But I feel there can be some sort of qualifying and restrictive measures brought in by our government especially in this valley and subsequently for the entire Uttaranchal. Lest Dehradun suffers the same fate as that of Bangalore (Bangaluru); that of congestion, crimes, land grabs, traffic jams & pollution of all kinds. Quality of Roads and Lanes. Ever noticed when the authorities lay a fresh tarmac on a road and make it smooth and tidy, it does not last even a week. Someone digs up this road to lay water pipe line or connect sewage or lay a cable or put a barrier/welcome arch. The dug up road keeps lying like this for days. Much later the spot is filled up loosely with the dug up earth /malba and left to settle by the traffic passing over it and rain. The patch would be repaired only in the next contracting season. During all this time that patch of road would be constricting the carriageway or act as a speed (spring) breaker. This is our national habit and shows the utter lack of expertise in making and maintaining an urban road. This practice is unfortunately seen even in our metro cities. And we speak of ourselves as up and coming developing nation; a nation with SMART cities!. Could the reason for such bumpy roads be one of the following? 1. To substantiate our national attitude of damn care (Chalta Haye). 2. The bumpy roads are deliberately created and left, perhaps, as a public welfare measure for creating more jobs for those engaged in running motor garages and those who manufacture spare parts/tyres & also for the many clinics that can have injured road users to treat at an expense. 3. To introduce, the concept of a smart city where as some device fitted in the vehicles; which due to bouncing would produce unconventionally generated power to be fed into the national grid at designated petrol pumps and get free fuel in lieu. The first two reasons are just for laughs and not conducive to making of SMART city. However, the third reason is a bit thought provoking. A futuristic SMART city may make the entire city wired and equipped for e- governance and administration. In which all kinds of communication including traffic is e-controlled and utilized to reduce power consumption and improve quality of our environment. Even un-pitted smooth road pavement would be embedded with sensors and computers to provide instant data and means to control of a traffic build up or a jam or trace a speeding vehicle. It would also provide, due to pedestrians footfall and vehicular movement, enough energy to power the traffic lights and street lighting. But definitely it does not include such potholes. Features of a Road. Road is not a road but remains a TRACK unless it has the following parts existing simultaneously. 1. Hard, traction worthy surface made of concrete or tarmac. Its width is dictated by the use as a single double or multiple lanes & one way or two way. Laid with a camber (Convex section laterally) or banking (Slope) at turnings. 2. Berms/Footpath. This is also known as shoulder on both sides of the hard surface. About 1 meter or more. A highway may have berms which has stone soling but does not have a smooth hard surface. On urban roads berms are replaced by raised footpaths for pedestrians to walk on without coming in the way of vehicular traffic. 3. Road side Drainage. These are very essential otherwise after every heavy rain or massive water or sewer leakage the roads would become unusable. The drains are open or under ground. The later is resorted to when the width of carriage way is restricted. Such underground drainages on both sides are tucked under wide footpaths within the city and are approachable for cleaning etc through manholes left on the footpath. 4. Road Side Parking. Ideally, an urban road/lane is required to have a two way i.e. double lane hard surface then parking lanes on both sides for vehicles to park parallel to the road then wide raised foot paths on each side. On suburban and rural/highways the berms are made wide enough for parking. 5. Underground Services. This is the most critical part of a road way. The water mains, the power cables, telephone cables are all laid under the surface of the road. Preferably these should be laid in the service lane on highways passing through an urban area or under the footpath in a planned urban area. Where this is not possible due to an already existing road these are put under the hard traction surface. Now this, if not laid properly can create a lot of trouble in the maintenance of the road. For any leakages or damage of cables caused due to pressure of traffic or another agency digging the road makes the road fully or partially unusable. Many different agencies laying these services make it more difficult to keep the road in its top condition for use. A better and reusable subsurface service lane would be to have a Masonry/RCC deep trench covered with thick RCC slabs. The fresh water pipe lines and all types of cables are tied on the racks along both the sides of this trench and laid in its bottom. For giving connections to the consumers tapings on these service mains are provided at regular intervals though smaller such trenches or Hume pipes to each side of the city road. Such service trenches can be then covered with thick RCC slabs which may also act as roads surface. In Metro cities such deep trenches are actually tunnels more than a mans height and act both as storm water drains as well as service lanes. These tunnels are reached through manholes constructed flush with road surface. In narrow roads such service tunnel may be tucked under the footpaths. Even though we miss cool ever flowing open canals, passing through our city to irrigate our famous rice and sugarcane fields, we have accepted that sacrifice for the widened roads we have now. The fields have disappeared, sacrificed to the growing population that has encroached upon these our once famous assets. The water flowing through these canals are no more needed to irrigate. So why not conserve this water at its impounding for supply of potable water to the citizens and convert these, now huge piped underground passage, for service lines laying purposes? But it remains to understand that however smooth and wide and efficient roads we provide, it is the users (We) who should maintain the sanctity of our means of mobility with disciplined observance of traffic rules and regulations. It is but obvious that our traffic police and home guard volunteers themselves do not know these. Our law enforcers should be subjected to intense training in this aspect which not only help us but impress our tourist guests too. One honoured and satisfied tourist would get us ten more hence the enhanced economy & prosperity for all of us. Parking of Vehicles. One major hazard to smooth flowing traffic in smart city is PARKING sense and facilities. What with cars and four wheelers parked not nose to tail but nose to nose, two wheelers parked in the space for four wheelers. Most frequented public facility like the main branch of SBI on Convent Street, the District Court and DMs office complex, the main shopping market Paltan Bazaar etc. have no dedicated parking lot. Many a streets , lanes are narrowed because of haphazard parking of vehicle of its residents. The parking usurping the carriage way increases by there being no check by the authorities on people converting their residences into commercial ventures or some unscrupulous but shrewd business person opening a shop in rented residential building with an eye to profit from the congested residential complex not having its own dedicated and Municipal /MDDA approved market. Dehradun can never become a SMART city unless its parking of vehicles attitude changes drastically. ( I can go into the nitty-gritty of each of these points and more. But we need to brain storm this aspect with the other knowleagble Doon lovers) _________________________________________________________________________ SMART LIVING. A city is the imprint of the people living in it. Imagine a tourist visiting Dehradun for the first time in, say, 1950. A small city with clean breathable air, canals gurgling through the city along roads, lush green with Leechi orchards surrounding open court yards of residential houses. The city market Paltan Bazzar full of colourful people walking happily bargaining, eating, greeting each other. No crowding, with only cycle rickshaws or bicycles just to carry heavy purchases. No litter on road side, no rag pickers scrounging on heaps of garbage. The only public conveyance being horse driven carriages called Tonga. Citizens walking and loving to walk all around without the fear of accidents or inhaling any dust or smoke. Some, even trekking to Mussorie via Rajpur and Oak Grove. Just on the outskirts of the city, fields of aromatic world famous rice. The free flowing natural drainages Bindal & Rispana carrying clear bathe able water even in dry season. A haven for the tired buffeted stressed person to come and spend time in a really salubrious climate, refresh and go back full of nostalgia for the valley called DEHRADUN. If the same tourist was to come again now he will have to put a mask on his face to avoid inhaling smoke and dust caused by traffic. He will have to walk-run his way through the haphazardly parked or vehicles waiting in two three deep line in a traffic jam causing more jam. He may have to trudge through heaps of garbage lying spread on roads and lanes avoiding the foraging stray animals. He may rent a pup tent and a rucksack from Moti Bazzar, planning to move out into a quiet forest area away from the din of todays Dehradun ; but may not find a patch free from the human faeces. He may also not feel safe for fear of mugging. Such are Dehraduns wages for becoming the capital city of this state. Aiming to become a Smart City on its own terms we, the lovers of Doon have to strive and bring changes as enumerated below. 1. The density of residences vis-à-vis its green cover has to be defined and implemented. Apartment housing may be considered by the urban living planners as saving land but it needs serious thoughts about the land to be used for laying services i.e. roads, sewage, water, telephone and electricity lines etc. Also the land that would be needed to establish the energy sources to supply these. The development authority should define a GREY-GREEN ratio (Cement-concrete vs vegetation cover) and control it strictly. 2. In order to afford smooth traffic flow the authority would consider strict laws for parking. It would help in achieving this if the entire city is re-patterned to create nodal commercial shopping complexes instead of letting residents to open shops and commercial ventures in their residences or residential plots. The municipality should register all kinds of shops including hawkers and charge tax on them. In a residential complex it would be healthy for people to walk up to a nearby shopping complex to make their purchases and this lazy attitude of having a convenient shop next door should be changed. 3. The garbage leaving the building should not be exposed to the atmosphere causing infection, foul smell and giving an unhygienic look to our city. One way to create local dumps is to construct underground silos with hopper, for people to drop their garbage bags and a large manhole for the garbage collecting truck with crane to lift it out and carry it away to the recycling plant. Hawkers must carry their own garbage bags and empty them at these local dumps. 4. Spitting, Urinating or Defecting in the open be banned and strictly implemented by on the spot fine, immediate cleaning by the guilty and continuous patrolling by authorized citizens vigilante. Proper PAID washrooms be constructed and maintained by the municipality in all localities one every 500 Meters Square area. It would also help make our city more tourists friendly. 5. It would make our city ecologically better and more pretty if our citizens festoon their residences with potted or house gardens plants. The flora (including trees, bushes, flower and vegetable plants) are an extension of our lungs. They clean the atmosphere of toxic gasses and provide us with oxygen. 6. Most dirt and effluent producing shops- garages with workshops- iron monger with welding enterprises should be grouped /confined to certain enclosed compounds in specific locality or out skirts of the city. 7. In order to bring back the famous salubriousness of our Doon let us get rid of the din we face these days by unnecessary honking & the indiscriminate use of electronically enhanced sound in marriages & places of worship. 8. A smart city does pay much attention to its aesthetics. We have to strictly do away graffiti and poster pasting on walls and haphazard hoarding along roads. The new craze among our politicians to put up huge hoardings of themselves definitely intending to market themselves must be banned. The hoardings distract the drivers while driving and obscure the citys buildings which should be very presentable and their façade festooned with flowers and greens. 9. There should be frequent workshops and discourses with the citizens of the city to make them aware of their responsibilities to keep DOON Smart forever. 10. There are some very kind Lovers of Animals among our old inhabitants. They should initiate a move that there should be NO strays in our city. These include Cows who must be cared for in their sheds, dogs & cats whose breeding must be stemmed, pigs who must stay in their sties & monkeys who must be confined to jungles. 11. Use of fireworks must be strictly controlled. Should not be permitted on marriages, on house parties, on expressing joy for any sporting or election victories. It would be an ideal achievement for us to make people stop using fireworks even on our sacred festival of light (not firework lights). ______________________________________________________________________ SMART ENVIRONMENT No other specification can be better for Dehradun except being known as the green city. Not painted green but naturally green. 1. Greening. The city should base all its planning on maintain a Green Grey ration ideally as 50-50; but not less than 60-40. This grey-green ratio should be adopted for every construction. On municipal level it encompasses large green parks, patches of forests, Orchards, floricultural nurseries, surrounding paddy-sugar cane-wheat- corn fields, individual peoples garden-potted plants and terrace gardens on apartment housings, Golf courses & Walking-Running tracks in huge parks in each locality (Mohalla). 2. Toxic Gases & Fumes. (a).We, in Bharat, are obsessive about the use of FIRE to cleanse everything and WATER to wash away everything. So much so that we over use these two natural phenomena to pollute our environment. We collect garbage and dry leaves & grasses and instead of recycle those (as manure etc) burn them off. The toxic fumes and smoke emanating makes our AIR unbreathable and settles down as dust filled smog obliterating our natural light. Also choking the photosynthesis process of nature to provide nutrient to living species including the flora & fauna. Such open burning also consumes our oxygen and dries away moisture. Observe our localitys road & lane sweepers as they collect kutchra on road side and set fire to it instead of collecting it and taking this to bury it for conversion to manure and provide humus to enrich our soil. (b) We have also taken to the extensive use of fire crackers to celebrate any occasion for which we feel there should be glitter and noise; not caring that it leaves our air laden with sulphurous and carbon laden smoke, may cause fire, is harmful to the elderly and respiratory sensitive citizens and cause terror for animals and birds. (c). We also have a habit of using water lavishly to wash our motor transport , our compounds, houses & shop fronts and let water drain on to the road. The tarmac road then gets rutted because the bond between gravel and tar gets loosened.This makes surface of the road rutted and increases the dust. Such damage takes place in our city after every rain. We as a smart city should convert our tarmac roads to cement-concrete ones. 3. Shield against Hazardous Radio Waves. We generally realise only those pollutants which we can feel with our five senses. We fail to realise the invisible and apparently un-feel able pollutants in the form of so many kinds of radio waves crisscrossing our atmosphere. These are generated by our transmissions, industrial usage, our IT facilities & major volcanic and nuclear blasts. Such harmful waves already occur naturally as received from Sun, eruptions & earth-quakes. We only end up reinforcing them by superimposing artificially generated radio waves as described above. These waves definitely tend to upset the balance of our cellular bio-magnetism which helps us to grow from an embryo to an old age healthily. The cell divisions to reach various sequential mile stones in our lives are based on atmospheric balance of electromagnetic waves. Such superimposed waves definitely affect this sequence, causing cells to go haywire, resulting in upheavals in our metabolism & harm to our body and often become cancerous. The harmful use of mobile phones and proximity of transmission towers is now known to us. There are two ways we can reduce the effect of these harmful but unavoidable waves. (a). Trees as usual provide a natural shield. They act as absorbent and obstruct these waves from reaching living species on Earth. A terrace garden on the roof of apartment housing should be made essential. Also grove or a clump of tall trees (not coming in the way of our electric supply) in each locality too can help. (b). Another way which can also become a means of health tourism is spending a little time daily in meditation within a pyramid or spherical (Dome) like structure made of a metal cage just reading a paper book with no piped or electronic ally played music ( perhaps the old gramophones playing records can be reintroduced). The efficacy of this process has been well known centuries ago as discovered by Michael Faraday, the scientist who studied and defined the effect of EMF on objects. The pyramidal meditation is already available in Dehradun. 4. Noise. This kind of pollution has been known to cause tension, headaches, deafness and tiredness. Mostly people living in big cities are victim of such a pollution. Those of them, who can, escape from time to time, to go to a quiet place for resting their brains. Surely in smart environment NOISE POLLUTION has no place. It is caused by traffic, assembly of people in confined places, unnecessary use of electronically enhanced PA systems, loud music, fire crackers and other artificially generated noises in market places. We in our culture are a quite noisy in our daily routine and celebrations. But if we wish to make Dehradun and its surrounding not only Smart but also a tourist friendly haven, then we have to strictly change our attitude and considerably reduce these sources of noise. A dense buffer of foliage, besides clearing our atmosphere and giving us fresh oxygen, also absorbs noise. The natural harmony of human voice with the chirping of birds, the flowing of breeze (even strong winds) and that of animals only lends to the serenity of our healthy living. 5. Excessive Lighting. Commonly we people are not aware that excessive lighting by artificial means too is harmful to our health. Nature has provided us with the routine of day and night for us to sleep and rejuvenate ourselves for day. It is not only we human beings, but all living things including plants that need to sleep at night. If we lengthen or day by providing artificial light then we are straining ourselves. Our social needs do require us to have some night lighting but the addition of excessive area lighting, blinking advertisements, glaring head lights of traffic and our own bright lights from Lamps and TV etc all add to the strain on our eyes and brain. The blue (or white light, as we call it) from Tubes, CFL and even LED bulbs plus secondary emission from our TV and computer monitors too are straining, as they emit UV rays. We have to therefore plan, design and maintain our lighting very scientifically and judicially. We must get used to more of defused lighting than direct one. 6. Spitting, Defecating and Ablution in Public. This practice is bane to our social habits. It has been enhanced due to Paan and Tobacco chewing. Even normally people travelling have a habit of spitting out of train, bus, car windows and while sitting on a two wheeler. It is not only unsightly but an open source of various kinds of infections. Similarly bathing or washing up in public is unsightly and unhygienic due to splashed soapy water and of course it is indecent to exhibit semi nude human anatomy. Defecation in open and in sight of passing by people is a most horrendous bad habit. A smart city of smart people should not tolerate such practices at all. [A word of caution though. We must remember that too much of every think is cancerous. Allowing too much of uncontrolled greenery too is harmful for our existence. Greenery attracts precipitation and hence dampness. Dampness causes fungal and bacterial growths. In flowering season excessive pollen in the atmosphere aggravate allergies. We have to therefore very diligently go about integrating this valleys natural green assets with our planned landscaping. The ideal would be to convert the entire valley surrounding our city into a well groomed and tailored garden with groves of trees, lined avenues, green expansive meadow like golf courses, interspersed with lotus ponds and lakes, gardens with naturally and cultivated flowering trees and bushes, vast fruit orchards and lush terrace gardens]. ___________________________________________________________________________ SMART PEOPLE I consider the whole valley is what the city of Dehradun is. In fact Mussoori and Dehradun can be considered as twin cities; also since both these are administered together by one system we can call our distinct culture as MusDoon culture. Therefore the citizens living in the valley and the hills around are the ones who ought to become SMART. Some QRs for achieving this are given here. 1. Education & Culture. It is quite imperative that the Doonites are educated. Knowing not only to read and write but having knowledge enough to indulge in fine arts & other intellectual pursuits too. This trait already exists in the genuine MusDoonites. It should also become a criterion for outsiders to settle down in this valley and cities. A tall and peculiar order it may seem but that is what would make our MusDoon uniquely smart. We have a trend of many a national and international celebrities settling here and also emanating from here. This is what which is going to give us a distinct culture worthy of being called MusDoon Culture. 2. Attitude & Habits. Mussoori-Dehradun have been attracting many people from outside the valley, who desired to have a piece of this peaceful ambience or to settle down post retirement. In the past, that is what earned it the sobriquet of the towns with Green Hedges and Grey Hair. The Green Hedges symbolized its pollution free atmosphere and the Grey Hair, a lot of experience and talent. It was a good trend which became obscure and diluted after the state came into being and Dehradun was unfortunate to be chosen to bear the burden of becoming a capital. We now need to revive that even with the young and famous coming and settling here or having their homes here. Where they would come back from time to time, after blazing trails all over the World. We need MusDoons residents to learn to love discipline not dislike it. To practice it proudly and not think of being mocked or be considered a freak. They should consider going an extra distance to take a u turn rather than going against the traffic in wrong lane. They should have consideration for others in all their day to day dealings rather than living off others inconveniences. We should not let the disease of caste-religious-regional divide mix bitterness in our amiable deportment. Our love of nature and its blessing in the valley should be as much as it is for self. We should exploit this gift of nature only to market our culture to tourists and visitors and guard it against any kind of destruction or extinction by overuse or over exposure. Needless to emphasize that we should protect our valley & surrounding hills from all kinds of pollution brought by modernization. It needs personal example from each of us, lover of Mussoori and Dehradun, and for us to innovate ways to use alternate means to be able to keep up with the outside world. In living healthily and peacefully we should be the leaders for the nation and not imitators & followers. 3. Creativity & Entrepreneurship. It is a stereotype thinking of our politicians backed by the opportunist bureaucrats, that having Industry is a sign of progress and it is the solution to unemployment & prosperity. This imbalanced & unchecked progress making notion has caused us to generate pollutants of many kinds and stress among the people of our nation. If we desire to keep the citizens of Mus-Doon protected against this social menace we must discourage all kinds of Industrial ingress into the valley and around. (a) Our entrepreneurship should be based on our natural assets. Like all kinds of tourism like health, adventure, pilgrimage and intellectual solitude. In a clean restful ambience we may take on various kinds of non-polluting cottage enterprises and handicrafts and also creative arts. (b).We should also develop horticulture, floriculture, Herb culture & growing of various kinds of exotic vegetarian foods. The valley and the hills around are climatically most suitable for all these. This would also give rise to small scale /cottage industry of making Juices, Jams, Pickles and canning. The nurseries can also take up exporting to other part of the nation and abroad flowers & saplings of exotic plants grown here. Our own Agriculture University can undertake research for all these. (c) We should also bring back the old known specialty of the valley, which is of Basmati rice & Tea. (d). The quiet and salubrious ambience may also encourage many an international writers, researchers, painters, histrionic artists & the like, to come and make this valley and hills around their temporary resort. (e) We must have the best medical facilities available as a backup for the health tourism. (f).We should develop international level educational institutes of all levels & types. (g).We should also encourage and promote world class Hospitality Industry i.e. Hotels & Resorts. 4. Health Awareness. It is imperative that people living in such a healthy atmosphere and ambience should be healthy. That means not only physically healthy but mentally active and robust too. For that, as I stated earlier, mere education would not help but adding to ones knowledge talents and healthy hobbies would make us, the citizens of this culture, very contended and fulfilled. Such a state of well being does add to the holistic health of a person. For achieving this my views are as follows. (a). With the help of our progressive administration and by public as well as private participation we must create in the entire valley measures and means to promote health awareness and sciences. These could be resorts, yogashrams, golf courses, cycling-walking and jogging tracks, all weather swimming facility, trekking and rock climbing, hang gliding, angling, bird watching etc. (b). For our intellectual health we can create facilities for national and international seminars, exhibitions, fine arts learning and competitions. (c) Facilities of various kind of spiritual research and meditation is already available to us in the valley as at Rishikesh and Haridwar. We may compliment these with a world class all religions retreat and study centre. This should look after our spiritual health too. All these facilities and activities would not only benefit us but bring us fame, prosperity and contentment. ARE WE READY FOR SUCH A CHANGE? _____________________________________________________________________________ SMART ECONOMY. The economy of MusDoon has compulsorily and necessarily to be based on Ecology. All that I stated above has revolved around this one aim. That is to live and use our natural asset (The Ecology) for sustaining us as a distinctly green SMART city and its surroundings. That means ours is not going to be a copy of other SMART cities based on a uniform pattern of dependence upon industries, commercial ventures and trade. Lucre of wealth is very common & potent human trait. The lucre of Doonites ought to be naturally acquired health and contentment. We should not be in a hurry to acquire affluence by indulging in means which may harm the ambience of this our paradise. Wealth generation should be through means which is based on our ecological assets I give some of these as follows. 1. Tourism. Even as it is our city, the valley and its surroundings are very attractive to tourists of all kind. We should device ways and enhance our tourist based assets to attract more tourism. Tourism itself will bring a lot of revenue. Our facilities should be honed to international standards without making the cost prohibitive for middle class tourists. Once satisfied and won over it is they who would act as a positive propaganda for our hospitality. For that it would be essential to establish world class hospitality Industry. 2. Top class Communication Facility. If our aim be to become not merely a smart city but also an internationally recognized piece of Earth where peace, health, feeling of nearness to divinity, meditation to achieve freedom from the stress & strain of life and a place where one can create marvels of ones art, innovate and discover then we need to have an all weather road, rail, air and e-communication. We also need easy and assured access to all the parts of this valley and the surrounding mountains. This would also be needed for our world class health tourism. 3. World Class health Facility. In a salubrious and health giving ambience that we dream to create in this valley and around & to be able to provide holistic treatment to the stress ridden people of our own country and the world we must have world class health sciences available within this valley surrounding our city. 4. Indigenous Handicrafts. The permanent incumbents of this city and the valley must benefit, not only by hospitality and health tourism but also marketing their indigenous handicrafts. We may also invite the handicraft of other regions of the world to have a training and sales outlet here. 5. Fruits and Flower Growing. Many an old and new Doon lovers will vouch that the climatic condition is so suitable to grow many kinds of fruits, those needing a hot and damp climate or those needing cold and dry climate or those needing fairly dry or those needing fairly wet climate for their planting , nurturing and copious fruiting here. Examples are Mango, Banana, Grapes, Apple, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Apricot, Pommel, Grape fruits, lemons of various kinds, Litchi, various kinds of berries, olive, fig, loquat, sweet lime, almonds, walnuts, straw berry, pine apple, guava, avocado and the list goes on. Flowers can be any kind, except those requiring snow cover in winter. Even these can be now grown under controlled conditions. I have seen the various flower shows here and what a variety of common and exotic flowers have been displayed. I have myself grown in my garden lilies like Ixia, spiraxis, zentedeschia, zapharanthus, Gloriosa Indica, gloxinia, Hyacinth, Hydrangeas, Narcissus, lillium, daylily, many other kinds of seasonal lilies, African violets, two kinds of violets, oxalis of different kinds, variety of orchids, carnations, many other common but profusely flowering roses, merry gold, zinnia & the list goes on. In time to come perhaps someone among us would grow crocuses to extract saffron from it. Most of these can be grown commercially and exported to metros, sold to hotels etc. 6. Resurrecting our Famous Basmati. It would be bringing back our lost glory to recultivate the famous basmati rice of Dehradun. Along with that we may grow the other exotic varieties of rice the long rice, the curling one, the red/brown rice and earn revenue and riches through these. 7. Herbiculture. The climate is ideal to grow many kinds of herbs and medicinal plants here in the valley and terrain. The city/valley can be developed as a research and nursery specially for the Himalayan herbs .With the help of our famous Pant Agricultural University valuable and ground breaking research may be carried out. The medicinal value of such herbs and exotic plants may then be patented and sold for manufacturing elsewhere in the country or world. 8. Non-polluting Cottage Industry. Once we have horticulture , floriculture, vermiculture, sericulture, fruit canning, hand weaving with wood and silk, growing of rice, exotic vegetables and herbs; we shall have lots of cottage based non-polluting industries going in the valley and its surroundings. 9. Educational Hub. The tradition of having some top class educational institutes must be encouraged to include international standard IT, Technological, Medical, commercial, law, sports and research cum survey facility for all conceivable subjects of the world. It would not only bring in class but also a conclave of intellectuals who may make Dehradun valley, their creative abode. 10. Facility for Games & Adventure Sports . With a clean pollution free air to breath, lush green shade and brilliant clean sunshine which does not cause sun burns, with aroma of flowers and fruits, with closeness to nature and availability of world class sporting facility, medical facility and yoga for mind training, our haven called DOON, can become a favourite place to train and have competition in all kinds of sports. Our own young ones will get exposure to such high class facility and may excel in sporting events at national and international levels. 11. Facility for pursuing Fine Arts. With such an ambience and natural settings how can we not attract fine art pursuers to come and practice their art here and get us the fame and money. 12. Religious Tourism. This has been going on for thousands of years. Only we would refine it to include e-tourism and rapid movement and top class hospitality. My wish is that by this the valley and this city would become an example of our Gods blessings. 13. Strictly Controlled Ingression From other parts of Country. The prosperity and uniqueness of the valley and this city is bound to attract ingression from the labour class seeking job opportunities , realtors and builders & even financiers who would like a piece of this pie. Being a part of this democratic nation professing free enterprise it would be difficult to pick and choose such an external load which would strain our resources & efforts to maintain our Doonness. Many of them would even buy their way to settle down here. This choice making, though difficult, is not impossible. Our government and administration has to be involved in this. We may have to specially face many a greedy and selfish politicians. For this, perhaps a citizens forum would have to be establish to grant license or permission to outsiders. 14. Banishing Stray animals & Beggars. This is going to be a very difficult but very necessary effort to keep Doon clean of such social pollutants. If we plan to project this smart city and valley as a pollutants and nuisance free region and in view of our efforts to attract international tourists, intellectuals, artists, sportspeople we shall have to be strictly thwarting all such efforts of incursion of this malady of our Indian society. We would face stiff criticism from the Animal Lovers and Human Rights organizations; but we have to put our foot down and keep this out city and valley and its surroundings free of this nuisance. IN CONCLUSION the city, the valley and subsequently the entire state of Uttarakhand following these trends and guidelines may eventually become Bharats garden of health and natural beauty and may someday be classified as a world heritage region. It is not hypothetical and can be achieved with verve and diligence by those who have any love and concern left in their conscience for this naturally endowed valley and state as a whole. I have put all my heart, knowledge and experience into this write up. Each aspect, put in brief here, does need discussion and brain storming to bring out details nitty-gritty and methods of implementation. For this we need the Lovers of Doon to come together, form a front and start functioning. We have to make a beginning and pick our steam as we surmount each obstacle. Obstacles and oppositions will be many. We may sit together and analyse, forecast and prepare our defence which would be our peaceful offence for our ultimate victory. Utopian as it may sound, given patience and planning, these aspirations are achievable. HAVE WE THE ZEST? Lt Col S K Paul (Retd).

there has been rampant deforestation in doon chiefly for real estate giants. I wonder why is the state government totally uninterested in preserving the much talked green city status of doon? how can we all pressurize the government to discontinue these cuttings? The entire forest of rajpur, near DIT and sahastradhara is under threat due to residential projects of NCR based firms.

Hello CFGD, Extremely saddened to see the green cover of Uttarakhand being vanishing. From Nanda ki chowki to Rajpur Road, just counted the stumps and the stumps and the roots dug and thrown outside. Please count them - atleast there are nearly 50 stumps... and recently more than 10 trees cut down. Is this sustainable development? Don't think it is so, if the green cover is gone, Uttarkhand will lose its 'own identity' and that of 'the people'. Did Lord Kedarnath and his deluge not really teach us a thing or so? ... sometimes I really find it difficult to understand how can someone have the guts to cut a 'living tree' at the same instance destroying every organism on it?? Please protect the beautiful 'green treasure' you are having, money comes and money goes... but trees once lost will never come back! I would like to join this forum... can someone from your forum please write to me on the above mentioned email? ... Thanks !!!

i want to share a piece of advice with you or you can call it a suggestion. your main objective is listed as stopping certain people to stop cutting trees but i think you should also include planting trees in your mainstream agenda as to increase the green cover we have to plant more trees. for every tree felled we must plant 10 trees and the surrounding residents can be given the responsibility of watering and taking care of them. i also want to say that please dont include matter that needs to be printed on your site as we know that trees are felled to make paper. thank you

i want to share a piece of advice with you or you can call it a suggestion. your main objective is listed as stopping certain people to stop cutting trees but i think you should also include planting trees in your mainstream agenda as to increase the green cover we have to plant more trees. for every tree felled we must plant 10 trees and the surrounding residents can be given the responsibility of watering and taking care of them. i also want to say that please dont include matter that needs to be printed on your site as we know that trees are felled to make paper. thank you

A small request from my ten year old son, made by him while we were at one of your events at Gandhi Park. Could you please NOT use flex banners for your protests? Flex is plastic and hurts the environment. Creative jute (gunny bag) or even recycled cloth banners will be equally attractive.

Dear Team, First of all i hail your noble vision and effort to save Uttarakhand and even earth. And i hope you be able to change the scenerio, where man is ruining the God's Haeven.. Recently i saw your Save Ganga Campaign in the Newspaper. I was amazed to people still have time to think of saving very source of their living . But i think , you people are going in a wrong direction and there is a need of change of policy. Actually this energy hungry government will not stop until the supply power to people who are their voters in the elections. Nothing came up from Narmada Bhacho and Tehri Bacho Andolan. I hope same is not a story with you people. But if you look at other side of the problem, you find the answer which automatically resolves the problems. In my opinion rather than agaitating, we should motivate people to depend more on non-conventional energy sources n promote them in cities to villages. This will automatically cut the power demand which in turn will automatically cut need for the DAMS. Though process will take time, but for surely, it will have more postitive and for certain impact on not only saving Flora n Fauna of Nation but also world to some Extent. May be i can be wrong, as you people would be more learned, but if you haven't thought in this way, you need to rethink again... Send me your EMAIL ID, or contact me gautam.thapliyal@gmail.com, i have more ideas to save forest and thus there is no need to request governments..

this one is for the expression of concern.the mercury is rising in the doon valley.the past couple of years have been very dry and hot.this year i see that the mango showers ,scheduled around this time has vanished.the met deptt blames it on the delayed rains .i want you to raise the issue of deforestation for the lack of rainfall in the region.climate change has started to hit us now and very few realise that.my grandparents once told that they did not need fans in Dehradun during summers.i was shocked,since this was barely 30-35 years ago.same has been with the mountains,many regions are drought prone now,lack of rains has been the culprit,thus farming in the region has been badly affected.i think this issue needs to be taken to the government,for i believe they dont realise the importance of trees in bringing rain fall to the entire region.i hope you add this to your agenda.

Hello! I'm new to this, but some suggestions - Tree transplanting is a gr8 idea though needing money and space.

Dear all, I'm living as a tenant in Bhagirathipuram (which is between Doon Vihar and Ansal Green Valley). But since I'm basically from this region so am concerned because this place has been totally plotted for houses and has left no place for any park or playground. At the moment there are many vacant plots so the birds and small wild animals still have a home. But soon it will all be gone. The main road going through B'puram is bare. There are plenty of bushes but no trees. This road would make a nice place for a tree-plantation drive. Also, the saplings would need to be protected from goats, donkeys, pigs- animals that use this road. If such an opportunity comes up, you can be assured of at least 2 pairs of hands. (my daughter's and mine). We have put down several saplings but invariably the animals destroy them. Any ideas? Sheila
