Farmlands in India usually have a Temple or Dewra
on them. These are the symbols of our devotion and belief that “nothing is possible until the almighty agrees to it.” These pious structures are trusted to protect the yields of the farm from bad weather or insects or for bringing good rains…. Expansion of Cities and Conversion of Agricultural land into Commercial and Residential Buildings might lead to encroachment or destruction of such holy places. You might still notice such constructions right in the middle of the road, but have you ever thought why it is so?
Sustainable Development is the answer. Our Government gave due respect to the belief of its citizens and didn’t destroy them. They have given a solution which helps in keeping development and devotion together. This is done by constructing roads without destroying them and giving them their due space. Here are some of the examples from Udaipur
where you can find such fusions ….
