Joshimath Sinking: No drainage – increasing burden of buildings, are there conditions like Joshimath in Dalai Lama’s McLeodganj?

Hospice. Joshimath of Uttarakhand in Mcleodganj of Kangra, which has made an identity in International Tourist Destination in Himachal Pradesh (Joshimath) As the circumstances may be. If the society does not warn in time. Experts say that multi-storey buildings increase the burden on the land and lack of proper drainage system on the mountains and lack of sewage provision can also be the cause of such a disaster. Please tell that here is also the residence of Tibetan religious leader Dalai Lama.

Everyone is aware of the incident of Joshimath in Uttarakhand. In such a situation, there is a need to take proper steps to avoid such disaster on the mountains. Construction should be done keeping in mind the geographical conditions of the mountains, because multi-storey construction puts load on the land and increases the possibility of land sliding. There is talk of a burning issue like Joshimath. In such a situation, the construction of multi-storey buildings being built on the mountains of Himachal is also a big issue.

In such a situation, Prof. Head of Department of Geology, Central University of Kangra in Himachal Pradesh. Ambrish Kumar Mahajan says that Joshimath is at such a place, where such situations have arisen due to obstruction drainage. It is not of today, but the cracks were slowly moving from before, which have emerged in the form of disaster at present.

Land slide zone formed due to lack of drainage system

In the context of Dharamshala, Prof. Mahajan says that above Kotwali market in Dharamshala, McLeodganj, Bhagsunag is such a place, which is a land-sline zone. This place is made due to lack of proper land-sline zone drainage system. Had the drainage system been proper and tagged the proper sewage system, this type of problem would not have come here. If there is a multi-storey construction, then there is more load on the ground, due to which the possibility of its slipping increases.

Multi-storey buildings are risky in land slide zone

About Shimla Prof. Ambareesh Mahajan said that there are multi-storeyed buildings in Shimla also, which are in the land-sline zone, they are risky and if there is no proper drainage system in them, they will also face the same condition as Joshimath. Pro. According to Mahajan Dharamshala, Dharamshala area is earthquake sensitive and also tectonically active. There are 3 thrusts around Dharamshala, in which Darini Thrust from South of Dharamshala, MBT Thrust crossing near Naddi in North of Dharamshala, Punjab Thrust, due to so many thrusts, the land of Dharamshala is under compressive stress. Talking about drainage system, there is no solution for drainage or sewage system above Mcleodganj, until this solution is not found, this problem will continue.

Lack of water drainage can be the reason for the accident

Pro. According to Mahajan, if you go above the Kotwali market, the road is sinking at many places. The main reason for this is that there is clay stone below and there is loose soil above it. As soon as the water fills in the loose soil and the moisture content increases and the land slides. It is necessary to have water drainage on the mountain and there should be proper arrangement of sewage. Lack of water drainage on the mountain can be the cause of a big accident.
