One of India’s core national wealth is the Himalayan range. India’s rivers and
water system originates largely in the Himalayas. The mountain range is sprinkled heavily with water ravines and river beds that run dry after the monsoons or snow melts are over and remain dry in their “off-season”.
On the other hand, vast populated areas of the Himalayan range are and remain without adequate water, certainly for agriculture, due to lack of ground water availability in mountainous geography, lack of water storage capacity as no government has bothered to build these and the conditions remain fairly primitive for the population forcing them to move to the plains and in the process resulting in depressed economic development.
Our grandest resource, one that has great capacity for economic contribution to the GDP is ignored and put in the too-hard basket by our politicians. The Rising India Party government will fix these quickly and efficiently.
