Lesson from Kerala floods : Human activities, climate change has disastrous effects on environment

  Lesson from Kerala floods : Human activities, climate change has disastrous effects on environment   Sagaya Fernando Mumbai: 19 October 2021   Overexploitation of natural resources and haphazard development by humans has led to climate change, resulting in long-lasting consequences on the environment. This is increasing health hazards and natural disasters, and more, day by day. The torrential flooding being witnessed recently in the state of Kerala in India is a prime example of this, say many experts.   This is not the first time that Kerala, a state of 34 million people, has been devastated by floods. It saw the worst floods in a century in 2018 when severe rains caused flash floods and landslides, killing nearly 500 people and leaving a million homeless. The following year, more than 125 people were killed in flash floods and landslides across the state.

"Wild elephant visits army canteen in India in search of food"

A wild elephant entered an army canteen located in the military station at Binnaguri in West Bengal state, India, in search of food recently.

The footage of incident shot on mobile by a staff shows the wild tusker searching for food in the canteen’s dining hall without making a mess of the area.

“The elephant left the camp in dignity without causing any damage,” said Col. Rohit Sharma stationed at the base.

Binnaguri is a small hamlet in Alipurdar district close to the border with Bhutan.

“The lush green foliage and grass in the military station attract elephants from the nearby forests located in Bhutan. The smell of ripening jack fruit attracts them so also the pineapple in kitchen gardens. During fruiting season herds of elephants visit the station,” said an army personnel.

He further added, “So far the animals have not harmed any residents or caused any major damage to the property. The army personnel are used to them and sometimes drive them away bursting crackers and lighting torches. Both men and the elephants live in perfect symbiosis here.”
