The bus to Pokhara took a right into the driveway and stopped in front of a fine restaurant. The conductor announced, “just 20 minutes for lunch”... my eyes fell on the river that was winding along the riverbanks several meters below the hill on which I stood motionless. The water in the river were sparkling under the glimmers of the shining sun...This is a rare scene for anyone who lives in Kathmandu.. Numerous streams and monsoon- created runoffs generate
the stream flow in Bagmati River and the valley basin ends at Chobar gorge. The
water quality in both Bagmati and Bishnumati rivers is so poor that it is not even suitable
for performing basic human functions let alone providing optimal habitat for aquatic life.We are living in a critical time period in which we face environmental, political, economical and social challenges everyday.
It is time for us to become aware of our actions to our environment and the impacts caused by destroying it. —www.ventzine.com
