Following pictures were clicked at Mansagar lake where the world-famous Jal Mahal is located. Every day hundreds of people visit Mansagar lake around Jal Mahal to feed resident fish. It’s 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 actions.
Someone might argue that feeding another living organism is a good act? It’s good karma, after all? From a religious or humane point of view, it might be an acceptable or desirable act. But from an environmental aspect, it’s a disaster in the making! Apart from feeding fish, 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 of litter in a responsible manner! It’s a shame!!!
All this needs to STOP!!
