Many residents of Joshimath, a small town in Uttarakhand, India,
Are compelled to leave as it sinks.
Some consider it as a consequence of reckless developmental activities,
Whereas some opine it as a natural disaster, instead of man-made.
Meanwhile, a recent ISRO report that mentioned the rapid subsidence of the city,
Has been taken off from its website,
As the National Disaster Management Authority has asked the concerned organizations not to interact with media or share data on social media.
However, as the tragedy unfolds in Joshimath, it raises the questions again,
On dam-building spree, developmental projects, tourism promotion, and many more,
Affecting this ecological fragile world,
Though it is a lost world for those who are affected.
