"Yes this sounds like what the world was like during my childhood and what Manali and its environs were like when I had first visited it in the 1960s.
The present sad state of things here is the result of the huge amount of spraying done on the almost monoculture of apples in the ’Valley of the Gods’. Kangra would have been badly damaged had it not been for the fact that fruit farming is not very reliable
on account of the strong hail storms that occur there as a result of the interface between the hot lowlands of the Punjab and the almost sudden verticle rise of the Dhaula Dhar range.
I would however like to know how many large Ficus trees are there and what is the state of the water in the very many rivulets flowing down from the mountains into the Rana Pratap Sagar. Such concentrations of birdlife should be, and most certainly can
be, existing along with human communities. That they do exist in locations should not lull us into a feeling of welbeing.
Do post this on your portal on my behalf."
