Everyday hundreds of people visit Mansagar lake around Jal Mahal to feed resident fishes. Its a common sight to find people throwing biscuits, flour and bread into the lake water, right from the early morning till late evening. People doing so, hardly understand the effect of their action.
(Apologies for slightly low quality pictures)
Someone might argue that feeding another living organism is a good act? Its a good karma, after all???
From religious or humane point of view, it might be acceptable or desirable act. But from environmental aspect its a disaster in the making!
Apart from feeding fishes, empty bread and biscuit wrappers can be found all around the lake adding to the litter! People are not bothered when it comes to disposing litter in a responsible manner! It’s a shame!!!
All this needs to STOP!!
Let’s spread the word and stop this ASAP!!!
