:) RP, sorry.  I came yesterday but was in a hurry.

Okay, onto the topic.

How much are we abusing the nature?  - Abuse is an understatement, no?  

One of the main reason for the loss in the tragedy , is the ignorance and erring of the Government bodies, not taking the warning signals seriously.  

The Garwhal area has been destructed rampantly by building those hydro electric plants on Alaknandha and Bhagirathi.

In the name of urbanization, in the name of improving tourism , in the name of employment opportunities, we are playing with nature? And when Mother Nature decides to take it out human abilities fail? And why were the warning signals ignored? Hindus believe Mother earth to be a mother and so we thought that she will just tolerate whatever we do? Ok, after this tragedy, have we learnt our lesson? That is another moot point, eh?

Nice topic!
 
What goes around comes around. We are killing Earth and we don't realise we are indirectly killing ourselves - one big irony!
 
Only when it is at the end and we have lost the Earth will we realise and regret.

No, RP, sadly we never learn.  We mourn for the loss and maybe remember it around the tourist season next year.  Man has become so involved with I, Me and Myself that everything else takes a backseat, sometimes not even visible in the rear view mirror.  Pathetic but hurtingly true!

True eclat we will never learn the lesson. Excessive abuse of Nature & the Nature hits back with vengeance.No afforestation programme in place , encroachment in to animal domain [ recently read news item that 15 wild elephants entered  Bangalore city]]  Chardham Yatra may be banned for some years . But  election round the corner it may become a political issue.

Tragedy apart , the commendable work by Indian army in rescue operation  deserves a special mention

Really sad part is  missing partner and waiting that he or she going to turn up safely but sadly not everyone gets happy ending - they wanted to have quite time but it turned into opposite

i don't think there is lot of warning or didn't realise the impact of the flooding
 
i am glad the reporter got fired - who was reporting the flood - little boy carryiing him

recently i visited Chennai - the way people drive they don't need natural disaster to kill them the way they drive - no signal or wait for other person to go or people cross in the middle so many times i had heard attack watching this (sorry off the topic )
