Dear Sir / Madam,
As we all are aware, the Nilgiris is a soil erosion land. In 2009 also people were affected very badly due to the landslides in the area. Like wise, the entire of Niligirs is unfit for any further construction of any nature.

Due to developmental activities large areas of forests have been cleared in and around the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. More human habitation has resulted in largescale road laying that connects even remote forest areas to the nearest urban centre. Construction activities like road building have unleashed widespread landslides and slope destabilization. Construction of the Kabini reservoir has submerged the valley between Nagarhole and Bandipur.
The rocks and boulders that make up the hills are held together by soil. When trees are cut down, their roots are no longer available to hold the soil together. A heavy rainfall is sufficient to make the rocks and boulders come hurtling down. Tea and vegetable plants are totally inadequate in preventing landslides.
We must understand and remember that once the balance of nature is disturbed or destroyed, it is beyond manís capability or capacity to stop or prevent the disastrous chain reaction that will be triggered off destroying the entire human community.

I wish to bring to your kind notice about certain construction bigwigs in the Nilgiris. Construction work is going on in full swing in coonoor Bedford, Brooklands, Kottagiri, Ooty, etc areas where chances of landslides are very high.
I hope that you will carry out a detailed inquiry in this regard and do the needful.
Awaiting for your kind and positive reply as only media has the power to awaken and enlighten a nation.Construction Erosion Although erosion on construction sites often affects only a relatively small acreage of land in a watershed,
it is a major source of sediment because the potential for erosion on
highly disturbed land is commonly 100 times greater than on agricultural
land .Erosion and sediment damages occur both on and off the construction site,
and all of society pays for the destructive impacts.
One of the effects of erosion is the changing of the landscape. Where millions of years ago there was a wide field, now there may be only a narrow one for the river has carried off much of its soil. Much of the carving up of the landscape is done by water particularly rivers. A river is formed when rainwater collects in a high place such as mountain or a plateau.
Abstract: The soil erosion from land areas can significantly causes damages to the terrestrial habitat and ... using the data collected from the Soil Testing Laboratory and Soil Conservation Office at Ooty and. can lead to landlslide loss of life & damages
