The following photographs are a snapshot as on 2nd July, 2014

Badshahpur village pond behind Bhairon Mandir is slowly being encroached by building into this natural lake.  We also understand that a proposal to fill this natural lake and build a community center on it, is under consideration.

The dry natural lake in Gairatbas village, just 3 km before Pathways International School.  A tube well near this lake also went dry.  A second tube well has been dug and pipes are being laid to reach drinking water to the village.  The domestic animals which used to depend on this lake are now left high and dry.

Golf Course Road, A large water body almost running through the length of the road exists at the lowest point.   This water body is flanked by indigenous trees on both sides.  A proposal is there for constructing an entertainment park by DLF over the area covered by photographs 3,4 and 5.
