Heavy rainfall has caused widespread devastation in several Indian states, including Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir, eastern Rajasthan, Haryana, Chandigarh, Punjab, and parts of Karnataka. The relentless downpour has triggered landslides and flash floods, obstructing roads and disrupting transportation and livelihoods. As the natural calamity unfolds, it serves as a harsh reminder of the consequences of human actions on the environment. Actor Arun Mandola, who hails from Uttarakhand, shares his anguish and concerns about the current situation and the urgent need for sustainable practices to protect Mother Nature.

Arun Mandola shares his firsthand experience of the devastating impact of heavy rainfall on his family and loved ones. “My family in Delhi and my grandmother in Uttarakhand are suffering due to this extremely horrible situation. Water levels are rising day by day, and transportation is severely affected. The situation is even worse in the hills, where continuous landslides pose a significant threat,” he reveals.

The actor expresses his feelings of helplessness, witnessing the landslides in the hills of Uttarakhand, where his grandmother resides. He emphasizes the urgency of taking proactive measures to prevent such calamities, especially in regions vulnerable to landslides.

“The government must be cautious when they destroy hills and cut trees for constructing roads. Engineers should be alert and consider the potential consequences of their actions,” Arun Mandola asserts.

Though not an expert on preventing landslides, Arun believes that there must be solutions to address and mitigate these natural disasters. His primary concern lies with the wellbeing of his family, local residents, and tourists facing the dire consequences of the heavy rainfall.

“The pain and suffering faced by those affected are unimaginable. Access to basic necessities like food and drinking water is scarce, making the situation even more dire,” he laments.

Reflecting on his personal connection to Uttarakhand, Arun fondly remembers the beauty of the region, comparing it to Switzerland. He highlights how rapid urbanization has led many people to leave Uttarakhand in search of better livelihood opportunities in larger cities. However, he notes a growing trend among the younger generation to return to their homeland for cleaner air and water.

“We, as humans, are gradually destroying everything around us, from pollution to global warming and landslides. The responsibility lies with us to find sustainable solutions before incidents like Kedarnath are tragically repeated,” Arun Mandola concludes.

As the nation grapples with the consequences of heavy rainfall, Arun Mandola’s heartfelt appeal for environmental consciousness serves as a poignant reminder of the urgency to protect and preserve Mother Nature.
