SAVE GANGES SAVE HERITAGE NATIONAL CAMPAIGN
(Introducing Scientific Principles of Ecology to Village through dialogue and Demonstration)

Recent flood in Uttrakhand alarms us again towards our approach of development and policy. Human loss at such extent again giving us a chance to rethink and act positively. Most of State climate change reports not yet came even after 3 years and now there is need of climate change research based policy on river basin scale. 

We are glad to inform you that as the next major step of our Gangetic Climate Change Initiative, we are organizing a “ Save Gamges Save Heritage National Campaign” from 1st October 2011 to create Save Himalayas Save Heritage Scientific awareness to Save Himalayas to save the Ganga, our national river and lifeline of crores of our people and the Himalayas through effective time–bound course of actions.

In the present Global change scenario conservation of our Himalayas regions, all mountains, forests and wildlife and the river Ganga is challenge in front of policy makers. In many international reports like IPCC, Nature, Current science and many more its claims that most vulnerable part of India is Himalayan region so there is need to prevent Himalayan and river Ganga. A report published in August 2009 issue of Nature based on the observations of DLR’s and NASA’s GRACE satellite states that there has been 109 km3 of ground water disappeared from the aquifers of Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi between 2002-2008. This much of water is equivalent to double the capacity of India’s largest reservoir and triple to that of Lake Mead, the largest man made reservoir in US. This unsustainable consumption and rapid decline of precious ground water resource in a densely populated (114 million) and highly vibrant agriculture belt of India is a serious threatening problem and pointing towards a major food and water crisis in near future. Climate is changing and it has been affirmed by the report of IPCC, 2007. It has been has been pointed that the global mean temperature may increase between 1.8°C to 4°C by 2100 and will severely affect the availability of water resources across the world. On the other hand dynamic change in land use has been noticed in India, the need of increasing population led to rapid conversion of forest areas into agriculture, human settlements, industrial areas etc.

AIM : : The National Campaign aims to bring together eminent persons from different streams of life to devote to the cause of creating (1) the scientific-awareness necessary to save the Himalayas, symbolizing of our culture, mountains, forests and wildlife & (2) to create Traditional Culture of Development and identified those traditional technologies which can reduce Global Climate Change & perhaps the only solution to our impending catastrophic Global Ecological Crisis, Save Himalayas Save Heritage Meetings/ Seminars/ Workshops, etc to be held in various major cities/ pilgrimage centers of our country in the course of the Campaign. The seers and prophets of all worlds would agree with the Traditional Science to the impending catastrophic man-made Global Ecological Crisis.

In this national campaign we are focusing to some major demands:
1. Ganges should be declared UNESCO World Heritage sites
2. Review the NGBRA committee and reintroduce some climate change scientists.
3. Review the planning policy and secure public partnership into this i.e, integrated approach of socio- scientific committee.
4. Draft plans with socio- scientific representative.
5. Assure the participation of common men.

      Importance of the river Ganga is not only material as her waters got silver particles and if you filter all the external impurities her waters practically never go off. Her real power is deeply transcendental and beyond comprehension of the minds dwelling on the bodily conception of life. Like some educated men can predict economical downfall not only on the local scale of one country but a continent or even a global recession, similarly it is predicted by great transcendentalists of ancient past, that with the demise of the river Ganga not only India will suffer the consequences but our entire planet will be in turmoil and humans and indeed all life on Earth will be poisoned and short-lived and surrounded by dirt and a desert.
