SaveTheHills(STH) is a group of concerned citizens who are raising awareness about landslides in Darjeeling-Sikkim Himalaya.
Many landslides are the direct or indirect result of human interference and preventable if sufficient care is taken.
As such, unless we begin a comprehensive and sustained program towards landslide management, prevention and mitigation, the consequences of ignoring years of human callousness will, in the future be devastating.

Participating 'online' in 'National BrainStorming Network on Landslides' at BITS, MESRA - 16Mar2020
Even though I was invited to attend the above workshop at BITS, Mesra (Ranchi), because of the COVID19 problem, I cancelled my travel plans. I could however deliver my entire presentation on 'Landslides Hazards - a silent disaster form', online to the many scientists available at BITS and I daresay it was well received.
