On 31Jul2012, I spent an entire day at the Tindharia workshop area, checking the drainage flow in the vicinity of the Tindharia DHR workshop and interacting with locals and DHR authorities. The captioned photographs above are from that visit.
My personal (gloomy) assessment based on the lack of progress of any landslide preventive measures in and around the endangered workshop till date is that if we have prolonged and heavy rainfall in the area during the ensuing monsoons, parts of the heritage workshop will certainly crumble into the massive landslide which has already damaged the structure.
Sadly, the truth is that having wasted the valuable dry season, no effective preventive work can be undertaken now (ie during the monsoons) and we will have to wait until after the monsoons (ie till Oct2013) for any major work can be done.
And that, maybe just a little too late.
