The lake looked familiar but the surroundings had transformed into unrecognizable terrains
Back in the late 1990s, we, a team of adventure sports enthusiasts
Were conducting periodical outdoor camping events and activities
Operating out of the city near this lake
The state tourism department was also keen on promoting adventure sports and activities
Encouraged by the growing interest among the younger population to pump their adrenaline spirits
We chartered a workable model to promote water sports tourism activities In and around this lake
To keep the activities under sustainable and responsible tourism, the working plan was submitted
To all the statutory bodies for their perusal and approval
Our bad or good, which to date we are unable to fathom;
we couldn't take forward the project because this lake happens to be the lifeline water supply for millions of humans and other life and farming needs!
The cab drove along the lake line for some distance and joined the traffic toward the city
I lost sight of the lake, and felt a bit emotional but recovered
When I remembered that we had lost sight of the project long ago!
Our cause was lost against a bigger cause because the right to living precedes leisure 🏖️
