"BRIDGING GAPS - TREE PLANTING": It was a chance meeting with Puranchandra Joshi. In the first few minutes, he stated: "One of the major issues in our region is that the mountain streams have dried up. We have to revive them. We have to plant the right trees, like 'Utish', that will help revive them. We have to think of the future - what is the air we will leave behind for our children. Will there be water?" The innate and widescale environmental wisdom and knowledge of Joshi inspired us to record an interview, where he talks of various points related to the survival of the habitat and ecosystem in the central Himalaya.One of the most scary forecasts he makes is that if not enough is done quickly to preserve and protect the lakes of Bhimtal, in a few years there will be buldings where there was a lake.
