Forest without public but with lots of Garbage after Parikrama

Forest without public but with lots of Garbage after Parikrama
Divya Bhaskar
Briefly translated from Gujarati

Parikrama that began from Dev Diwali (29-10-2009) was officially declared closed on 02-11-2009. last lot of pilgrims that loader at Bordevi yesterday night have returned to Bhavnath(Starting Point). Heavy traffic was seen on Junagadh roads. Those religious organization who had put their stalls for free-food have started carrying out marquees etc. out of the jungle. Unfortunately, as always, lacks of  tourists have put their foot prints behind in the form of garbage. Almost allover the tracking route and nearby tobacco sachets, spoilt vegetables, paper and plastic was seen. Also due to less rain this year, at many places river had dried up but still water ponds were formed. These clear still water ponds were highly polluted by detergents and soaps.

Kishore Kotecha's Comment : It is difficult to stop parikrama every year. But at least strict measures should be taken so that tourists do not pollute the place. This is just like using someone's home for free and then making it dirty.

Well this is bitter truth that we believe in parikrama n murti pooja but never think that this beautiful nature,river,trees n animals are wonderful gift from god to us so we shouldnt destroy or be harmful to it. Its not possible to stop all this because these all are due to our mentality i think. Only the solution is to put there dustbins at same distance in way of it.
