'Mumbaikars for Mangroves'
and we will forward it to Maharashtra's Chief Minister
The very reason that you visit my blog on Mumbai is because you are as passionate about this city as I am, we cannot welcome a doomsday in the coming decade.
If you were in Mumbai on 26th July 2005, you will know what I am talking about. How can we ever forget that! As much as every Mumbaikar is proud of this city, it's time we heed the call to balance our selfish needs with Nature's warnings or destruction as was evident during the July 26 deluge.
If we cannot make our commercialisation go hand-in-hand with conserving mangroves, then we may not have a city to call our own anymore.
That's the reason we need to make a choice NOW – a choice to fight the pressures of development, human interference or pollution. A choice to save our lifeline. And, 'Mumbaikars for Mangroves' campaign is an ongoing movement to stop this mindless erosion, by bringing together a collective majority to support the cause of saving our city's natural bounty.
The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),
.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
