Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Sep 30: Sea erosion is on the rise at Uchila Endpoint, Someshwara beach. One house is on the verge of collapsing while more than 10 houses are also in the danger zone.

Sea erosion is on the rise at the estuary that connects Talapady and Uchila Endpoint. Houses under the limits of Talapady are also facing danger as sea erosion has taken away parts of bank of Talapady river.

House belonging to local resident Dayavati is on the verge of getting washed away into the sea. No temporary rock filling work is done in this area till now. The road got washed away two years ago when there was sea erosion at Ucchila Battappady. Now Uchila Endpoint road is also damaged.

More than 200 houses are facing danger on Talapady area on the other side of the river. As the district administration is not responding to the sea erosion woes of Ucchila, locals are using an excavator machine to stack sand bags to prevent the force of waves.

    We should build more and more fishing harbours and jetties and simultaneously allow free permit to sand smuggling by collecting small amount of hafta, temple, authorities ,local people everyone can earn some extra There are plenty of benifits of sea erosion. Jobs for stone contractor, source of permanent income ro local politicians and authorities, jcb operators, labourers, drivers who take politicians for sight seeing around eroded areas each time , guest house owners get building at throwaway price and people can setup petty shops fir tourists who visit to enjoy the sight so many jobs can be created.

    Administration must take care of those places, because those are picnik points. Instead of this places our government spending on Chandrayaan and Soorya yana.

    Authorities will take action only after news of loss of lives are reported due to such natural calamity, until then they are all deaf ears.

    Why these affected people resided so closely to the shores? Didn't they anticipate such type of a hazard? Didn't anyone warn them of unprecedented happenings likely to take place due to global warming, adverse climate changes, allied natural disturbances and the aftermath ? I wonder what's next?
