Beautiful Lake of City Beautiful...

Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh, India is an artificial lake at the foothills of the Himalayas, the Shivalik hills. The creation of the lake was one of the greatest gift from Le Corbusier and the Chief Engineer P L Verma to the city of Chandigarh. To preserve its tranquility Corbusier insisted that it be forbidden to motorboats and the top of the dam (promenade) prohibited to vehicular traffic. This is the latest view of the great sukhna lake…which is sukhi sukhna lake now!

Instead of blaming govt. for the situation of the lake, we should notice our movements coz of which lake is getting polluted… plastic bags, bottles, garbage, unwanted papers… etc are the elements gifted by us to this lake. It’s a request and a warning to all the chandigarh individuals that we should take this issue seriously and help govt. to save our Sukhana lake from getting wasted by stop polluting it!
