editorial
In the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, where devastating floods wreaked havoc about one month ago, the scale and magnitude of the damage caused can be assessed by the fact that by the time this issue is going to press, the rescue operations are still going on to evacuate pilgrims, tourists and locals and to assess the magnitude of loss of property and life. What has changed environmentally in the recent past that has resulted in conditions that created this disaster? How can we meet the increasing energy and living requirements of the growing population in the hills without damaging the local natural environment and ecology? These are tough and complex questions. We will try to point to possible answers in upcoming issues.
The sustainable use of natural resources in urban development is the key mantra for Biome, a multidisciplinary practice based in Bengaluru. With the speed and scale of urbanization that we see around us, such successful projects and radical thinking are like a breath of fresh air and affirms our faith in first principles and forgotten wisdom.
