HEADLINE CrosS-border environmentalism IS Crucial for South Asia, but India is not inclined to take the lead
TO BE AN ENVIRONMENTAL WORLD POWER . Ecological ruin is on a gallop across South Asia, with life and livelihood of nearly a quarter of the world's population affected. Yet, our polities are able to neither fathom nor address the degradation. . Within each country, with politics dancing to the tune of populist consumerism, nature is without a guardian. The erosion of civility in geopolitics keeps South Asian societies apart when people should be joining hands across borders to save our common ground . China has been resolutely tackling air pollution and promoting clean energy
TO BE AN ENVIRONMENTAL WORLD POWER The Indian state not only neglects its own realm, it does not take the lead on cross- border environmentalism RIVERS INTO SEWERS In the hills, the Ganga in Uttarakhand and the Teesta of Sikkim are representative of rivers that have been converted into dry boulder tracts by 'cascades' of run-of-river hydroelectric schemes Everywhere, natural drainage is destroyed by highways and railway tracks elevated above the flood line, and bunds encircling towns and cities.

At that point, no force will be able to stop activism across the frontiers and South Asia will begin to tackle pollution and dislocation as one.
