उत्तराखण्ड के कुछ इलाकों मुख्यत: पिथौरागढ में सेना की पर्यावरण फोर्स द्वारा पर्यावरण संरक्षण के क्षेत्र में सराहनीय कार्य किया जा रहा है... सेना से अवकाश प्राप्त लोगों को लेकर बनाई गई यह Ecological Task Force(ETF) अब तक लाखों पेङ लगा कर बंजर पहाङों को हरियाली से ढक चुके हैं...   Deccan Herald में छपी एक रिपोर्ट

http://www.deccanherald.com/Content/Feb102009/environmet20090209117492.asp

Greening the Kumaon hills
 
 
 
The Ecological Task Force unit of Pithoragarh has been striving to green the near-barren hills of Kumaon, writes Tanushree Podder
 

I was surprised to see a hefty soldier tending to a sapling, as I took in the vista before me in the  Pithoragarh valley. Then I noticed another and yet another. The hill was dotted with men in olive green, busy with shovels and saplings.

The soldiers were fighting an enemy of a different kind in the near-barren hills of Kumaon, which over a period of time has undergone severe degradation due to indiscriminate felling of trees for timber, over-grazing of grasslands, rampant cultivation combined with poor agricultural practices and soil erosion.

This had altered the rainfall pattern in the region and the wildlife was vanishing. The Kumaon Hills were witnessing illegal cutting of trees.  The jungles were losing all the fauna.  There were sudden climatic changes in the region and temperatures had risen to over 35 to 40 degrees. Annual rainfall and snowfall pattern reduced drastically.
 
Alarmed at the ecological degradation taking place in the Himalayan areas and adjoining hills, Dr Norman Borlough of Wheat and Maize Centre, Mexico, suggested to the late prime minister Indira Gandhi to involve the Indian Army to restore the ecological balance on a war-footing.

Nine ecological Task Force units
It was decided that a Territorial Army (TA) unit be raised for the purpose, enrolling ex-servicemen from the region on ‘Home and Hearth’ concept.  This gave birth to nine Ecological Task Force (ETF) units in the country.

Pilot project in Jhulaghat
Work began in earnest as the ETF unit in Pithoragarh was assigned a Pilot project in Jhulaghat and Dharchula in Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand.

The Himalayan axis runs southeast to Northwest in the region adjacent to the Tibetan International border.  The region gives rise to many rivers, emanating from the district’s glaciers.  The river Maha Kali forms the international boundary between India and Nepal.  Many hydroelectric projects are planned on the river downstream.

This was to work as a test case for a monumental project conceived by the government. If this succeeded, the region could be turned green over a period of time. And the test case succeeded beyond anyone’s expectation.

The brown hills transformed into verdant hills covered with pine forests and thick undergrowth.

In just five years, between 2001 and 2006, over 3300 hectares of barren land in the area were greened. The project had a telling effect on the ecological reversal of Jhulaghat region.

Enthused by the results, the ETF was assigned yet another challenging task: to afforest barren hills along river Ram Ganga water shed in Pithoragarh district. It was more challenging than the previous one as this area is devoid of any vegetation. The time frame given is 2007 to 2013.

With camps set at Jakh and Chopra Village, battle hardened Kumaonis have set out to achieve the impossible.

The ETF - Pithoragarh unit has set a difficult target of afforestating 500 hectares of land in a year by planting 4.5 lakh saplings with a survival rate of 75-80 per cent.

What is remarkable is that the ETF doesn’t just plant trees; it ensures they survive, by taking care of them for a span of time.

They undertake soil and water conservation schemes, pasture development and also create eco-awareness in the children by organising campaigns in schools and villages of the region.

Two more firms for ETF
So impressed was the State government by the achievements of the men in uniform that it sanctioned two additional companies for the ETF at Pithoragarh. The Uttarakhand government has agreed to provide budgetary support for the functioning of two additional companies for five years till the completion of the project.

The companies are to achieve a target of 400 hectares of land for afforestation and plantation of 3.5 to 4 lakh saplings a year.

The companies that began work in June 2008 have already begun greening the inaccessible and inhospitable terrain in Pithoragarh and Almora districts by afforesting 400 hectares of barren land and planting four lakh plus saplings in a record time in a cost effective manner.

Checking soil erosion
The Task Force has begun preventing soil erosion by the nallahs and rivers and restricting over-grazing by goat and cattle.

This has been achieved by the planting of nearly 82.59 lakh trees and the construction of 1700 check dams, 340 retaining walls and 26 barricades that have succeeded in preventing soil erosion.

In certain areas, the locals have wilfully damaged certain trees like Chir, as the villagers don’t find them useful.

Some of the damage has been controlled by enlisting the help of village panchayats.

The hills are greener and man-animal conflicts have come down. Census figures indicate that the numbers of leopards, Himalayan bears, barking deer and mountain deer have gone up in the past few years.

The heartening news is that temperatures have come down. An indicator is the heavy snowfall in Pithoragarh in 2005-06. The last snowfall in the area was way back in 1994.

Awards
The unit received General BC Joshi award for outstanding field work in Himalayan region by Centre for Development of Eco-Technology (C- DET), University of Roorkee on 11 Jan 1998.

The unit also bagged the Anirudh Bhargava environmental award-2002 instituted by Indian National Trust for Art and Culture Heritage (INTACH) and the Bioved Environment Conservation Award-2007 from Government of India.

It is 7am and the bell of Borgaon's high school can be heard across the valleys, deep in the hills of Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. But this day is The library at Borgaon's school. (TOI Photo)
 
different — and the boys and girls can barely conceal their restlessness. Today, the long-awaited library is going to be inaugurated. It's a big day, for the kids who have never seen a library before.

A first for a government high school in the state, the library has not been built through government funds. It is the result of a common dream of Sitaram Dhyani, a retired school teacher, and his nephew Jai Prakash, an old-student of the school and currently professor of chemical engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago.

Borgaon village is over a hundred kilometres from the nearest railhead at Kotdwar. The pucca road ends about 6 km short of it. The village homes are scattered over a steep 1,500-foot slope. Like many other villages in the hills, its population has been depleted by migration to the plains for employment. There are just seven kids in its primary school. But the villagers are proud to have a high school, which serves several surrounding villages. And now they have a library.

The inauguration ceremony is short and sweet. Kirti Devi, 78-year-old mother of Jai Prakash, cuts a ribbon as the local panditji offers prayers to Saraswati, the goddess of learning. Traditional musicians from the village play drums in the background. Villagers mill around the reading room and the stacks of books. There is a brand new globe and several registers on the table.

And the there are the books. The collection is breathtaking in its sweep. Shakespeare, Camus, Sholokhov and Dickens (in Hindi) mingle with Premchand, Renu and Parsai. There are over 2,000 books, all bound in red with titles handwritten on the spine. There are ‘useful' books too - general knowledge yearbooks and guides to various examinations. Usha Binjola, Jai Prakash's sister has done the selection along with her husband Madan. They stay in Delhi. When Jai Prakash offered to give a donation that would help the village, it was Usha who ran around and collected the books. Teachers from the school sent her a basic list, to which she added her own.

"I wanted the children to be exposed to all the great writers. I know how that can transform one's life — it happened to me," says Usha.

The actual construction of the library took over three years. "It was very difficult. There was no road, so transportation of bricks and sand had to be done on donkeys. Costs just kept going up," says Sitaram Dhyani, who handled the construction part. He has donated a piece of his land for the library.

The school is let off early for the occasion. After a hastily put up cultural program and speeches by some of the seniors, the children rush into the library. They have been issued cards. Villagers can also become members. Mandeep, a small boy but already in 9th class, says that he wants to read storybooks. "We don't have books at home. My grandfather used to read books but now...," he says. Sunita has already got her first book issued — Barack Obama's Audacity of Hope in Hindi. "I have seen him on TV, so I wanted to read his book," she shyly says. She has to hurry along, as her home is two kilometres away.

The adjacent high school is a 7-room affair of which 5 rooms are in a state of disrepair. Although recently constructed, the RCC roof is cracked and wooden beams support it. The children sit around them unfazed. There is no water, so every student has to get two bottles of water from home. Part of this is collected and used to cook the mid-day meal for junior students. There is no science laboratory, although science is a subject for the board exams. Two dusty weighing balances lie on top of a steel almirah.

Aren't there government funds for libraries? Ajit Sharma, the principal gives a wry smile and says that last year a princely sum of Rs 1,102 was granted for books. "We had to purchase the books recommended from Dehradun. They are there, but nobody reads them," he says. He plans to add a half-hour library period to the schedule.

"Come back next year, you will see the difference this new library will make," he says.
