Himalaya is Holy. Himalaya is the epitome of man's quest for spirituality. Himalaya is also a comparatively younger mountain range unlike the table top mountains in South Africa. The Himalaya has risen about 5000 feet or more since the middle Pleistocene. Himalaya hasn't yet reached its so-called maturity and some of the mountains in the Himalaya are still growing. We need to understand this and realise that these holy mountains are also structurally as well as ecologically fragile. So blasting apart these mountains to construct dams, tunnels, buildings etc is going to create large faults and weaken it structurally.
I just managed to evade the massive landslides and floods in Uttarakhand as I immediately returned back to rudraprayag after the first landslides and then back to delhi.
This short film, "Save the Himalaya" is a call for action. Its time we wake up and take action to save the entire ecosystem of the Himalaya, else there would be no tomorrow.
The opening sequence has Neelkanth peak followed by Himalayan Tahr and Monal pheasant.
