Evironmental Concern/Jal Mahal & Mansagar Lake

Following pictures were clicked at Managar lake where world famousĀ  Jal Mahal is located.

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!!!

  1. I visited Jaipur in August 2015 and passed down the lake from the KK Royal hotel en route to the city palace. The lake is quite peaceful from the road wherein you can also see the camel-rides along its thoroughfare. The camels and the camel drapes were quite shabby and worn out – it did not make me ride. It would have been a good addition to Jaipur activities.

    1. Priyankamoraes! Although it might sound downright negative but sometimes I feel -Never! Even people who are educated and have read basic civic (sense) as a school subject, don’t think twice about littering. And this is surely a sad thing.
