River bed - Letto del fiume - नदी का बिस्तर

While travelling from Ulaan Baator in Mongolia to Beijing in China, I saw some mountains and a river flowing next to them that gave an idea of the space needed by the river when its waters increase. A part of the river was flowing on the other side of the mountains. When I read about Uttarakhand, it seems that for promoting "progress", they have built along the river, closing it from the sides, so that the space for expansion is not enough.

मँगोलिया की राजधानी उलान बातोर से चीन में बेजिन्ग की हवाई यात्रा में कुछ पहाड़ और उनके पास बहती नदी दिखी जिससे अन्दाज़ा होता था कि जब नदी में पानी बढ़ता है तो फ़ैल कर कितना बढ़ जाता होगा. नदी की एक छोटी धारा, पहाड़ों की दूसरी ओर भी बह रही थी. उत्तराखँड के बारे में पढ़ो तो लगता है कि वहाँ "विकास" की सोच में नदी के इस बिस्तर को घरों और होटलों के घेरे में बाँध दिया गया है जिससे नदी के पास जगह कम हो गयी है.

Mentre viaggiavo da Ulaan baator in Mongolia a Beijing in Cina, ho visto alcune montagne e un fiume che scorreva vicino, e dava un'idea dell'enorme spazio necessario per il fiume quando le sue acque aumentano. Un ramo del fiume scorreva dall'altra parte della montagna. Quando leggo sulla situazione nello stato di Uttarakhand in India, sembra che per promuovere lo "sviluppo", hanno costruito lungo gli argini del fiume, lasciando poco spazio per l'espansione del fiume.

    1. Even China has really wild and uncontrolled construction along the rivers, though not on the river in the pictues, and they are also having terrible floods in Siachen.
