I was walking through the tiny maze roads . Every thing seems to be removed even the few trees left on the urban area. I asked my friend why are these roads so clean. He replayed to me by saying “Bus dhaturu fashanvegeno ulehnee”.
North Province Hinnavaru island with a population of (Census 2006) 3017 people. Were the island is 650m x 225m. I must say very much crowded. Only like few roads where an ambulance can move around. In this island lot of things are under progress, there is a jetty extension project on action. Lots of huge pipes are placed in some areas of the island for Sewerage project. Foot print of wind farm and an invisible reclamation has started.
So much development per an island. But i don’t feel happy to see the huge bread fruit trees and coconut palms being removed. I do believe for construction there would be some distress to environment, but not all, not all the trees on the side of the road. These are the few trees left in the urban and they are the only greenery and shade on the road. Where does our children play. Do they have to stay indoor playing video games. Or do they have to wait till afternoon to come out. Almost every one on this island is talking about this, most of the elders felt sorrow about things happening. Is this the right way.
This is just one island, how about the rest. Think twice before doing anything. Don’t do things for your happiness. Think about the your children.
