'India plans 52 projects to control Pakistan's water'

BUREWALA – Chairman Indus Water Treaty Council Hafiz Zahoor-ul-Hassan Dahr has said that previous 131 rounds of talks between Pakistan and India under Indus Water Treaty bore no fruits and the latest dialogue would meet the same result.

He also warned that Pakistan could become another Somalia and Ethiopia.
Talking to ‘The Nation’ on Monday, Zahoor pointed to various projects launched by India to divert the water flow of three rivers entering Pakistan from Occupied Kashmir and said these projects were aimed at controlling the water of Chenab, Jhelum and Indus rivers, which were illegal and a clear violation of Indus Water Treaty. He said India was constructing 52 illegal dams, including five large ones, of which as many as 32 small dams had already been completed while 12 others would be finalised in 2014.

This is a smear campaign Aaron.

I am surprised the comedian in you has delved so deep in such a serious matter as this which is quite interesting I must say. Since you have put up this post, I thought of taking this opportunity to explain that there is no need to fear India's motives which has always been peace oriented and a torch bearer of democracy.

India is a structural and fully functional democracy and a very promising vibrant economy like Israel. India has progressive views of its water resources and is quite resourceful in planning innovative ways to effectively manage water for its economic development. India has not been accepting any institutional foreign government aid after 1980 (roughly the same time Israel stopped accepting institutional aid as well). It was only through resourcefulness that India has been able to build this amazing economy. Unfortunately India is surrounded by failed nation states and communist regimes.

India is a vast country with a vibrant economy and a massive agricultural framework. In spite of the best efforts to create an alternative to the monsoons, parts of India is quite starved of water. There is a massive focus to develop rain water harvesting, to modernize agriculture and to create an integrated approach to manage water by connecting the rivers and using nature's bounty to harness new ways to capture water. This has been done without contravening any international accord so far. The Chinese are building as many as 200 dams to stop the Brahmaputra river flow into India for reasons that India understands.

Strategically speaking, India has absolutely no interest in creating a "water starved nation like Somalia" on its border. It would be sad if that happens though out of mismanagement of water conservation practices, primitive agricultural practices and lack of a functional democracy in any neighboring country that India shares its border with.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out.

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
