The theme of Day 3 of the photo challenge of #developingyoureye I is ‘Water’. Of course you may ask, where is the element of water in these photographs? For that, one has to visit the Google Map where these are beautifully marked water bodies.
Well, these depict the story of a couple of vanishing lakes of Bengaluru. Many other places in India may have the same story. The real estate sharks may be already on the prowl. Maybe, after some years nobody will remember that there used to be thriving water bodies here.
It is said that there used to be an ocean, right at the place where the mighty Himalayas stand now. Who knows, there might have been beautiful water bodies right at the places where many of our skyscrapers vie for attention.
In countries like India water also may mean the lack of it. In spite of being surrounded by the sea from three sides, being flooded by the thousands of rivers every now and then, the water crisis in many parts of India is a harsh reality.
Well, let us forget Latur and move on. And, of course, not to speak of the water disputes.
