Archaeologists tell us that about 1900 BC the Harappan civilisation abandoned its cities and towns and moved away east and south, never to return. One of the theories is that it was because of deforestation, excessive grazing, flooding and drying up of the river. It is similar to what our environmentalists have been warning us of – that we are cutting down trees indiscriminately and overgrazing our grasslands. Rains are washing away the top soil and silting the rivers; soon, the rivers would dry up. They give a longer list of our misdeeds as to why this is happening. Our lands, they say, would then become uninhabitable.
What best practices should we adopt to ward off such a disaster?

prepare to emigrate to other countries
