    Snowfall must have brought a smile on the faces of tourists but isnt it a concern for people of Himachal Pradesh especially apple growers. Earlier snowfall used to start in the end of Nov or starting of Dec but now we have to get satisfied by the fact at least that is snowing.There is a great climatic change in the recent years as all of us might have noticed and it is directly affecting the apple farming which need proper temp. at proper time. Productivity of apple is going down year after year. Its a major concern and if steps are not taken wright now,you never know apple could not be seen by our coming generation in our state.

    I am a resident of Lahul and Spitti district and know the importance of snow, how important it for the people of hills and mountains. No snow, no water, no irrigation where people are dependent on agriculture. Imagine crop without water, is it possible. A big No. I appeal to all to plant a tree in a month and help preserve ecology so that we do not face shortage of water. Let us assist nature to play its beautiful role of timely rain, timely snow and timely wind to preserve lives. Please do not forget to plant a tree even when you do not have land of your own but plant it in the fallow land of others.

    Shimla the queen of hills it is always refferd to by the travellers and poets now is reduced to a mere queen without the crown. Once rich with jungle is now a concret jungle, how nature will shower its bounty on the people who cannot preserve there land.
