Saving the Hindu Kush | Shri K. Siddhartha | CSTV

The Hindu Kush Mountains in Himalayas – an arc of mountains which from Afghanistan, through Pakistan, China, India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Bangladesh, clear to Myanmar. It is the wonderful gift to Asia, and the world. They are a well-known destination for those seeking adventure, spirituality, recreation, and biological and cultural diversity. However, as the source of ten major Asian rivers, the Hindu Kush Himalayas also act as the water towers of Asia, supplying vital water resources to over 1.3 billion people. These rivers not only provide freshwater to the region, they also feed the demands of a rapidly growing Asian population for energy and food. But the human beings took it for granted and today there are disturbing signals coming from the mountains. Hindu Kush Mountains also play a role in regulating monsoon patterns. With changes in temperature, the monsoon patterns will also change, and what does this mean for future food and energy security? And how will people adapt to such changes? In this Video Shri K.Siddhartha has explained about the importance of Hindu Kush Mountains and how we should save it.
