A photograph and the progresss on Landslide Awareness Workshops

The NGO network of Darjeeling had organized a series of workshops on environment issues at Kalimpong, Darjeeling and Mirik (on the 5,6,7 Jun respectively) respectively to mark World Environment Week.
The landslide issue in Darjeeling district was one of the topics under discussion and I am glad to inform you all the awareness lectures were very well attended (especially by students) and received.

While returning from Mirik, I photographed the Ambootia landslides (above) which has the dark distinction of being the biggest in Asia and has been the obsession of geologists and geographers the world over.
