Exactly 100 years ago, on 12th December, 1911, Delhi became the Capital of India. The reasons for selecting Delhi as a Capital city was, that, it had river Yamuna on one side ( as a water resource ) and the Aravali extension Ridge on the other side (as its lungs). Though, developed for a population of 70,000 persons, today, after 100 years, Delhi is catering between 1.5 to 2 crores of population. The result is, that, the river Yamuna has just been converted into a big & dirty drain.
We must take necessary steps to save YAMUNA, otherwise, the reason for selecting Delhi as a capital city will vanish & the sufferers will be Delhite’s.
