The population of #Undredal is around 100 while that of the goats is 500. Eight goat farms produce around 10,000 kgs of cheese every year which is exported along with the locally produced goat sausage. This small #HumanSettlement imbibes in itself the natural scenic beauty along with a distinct human culture which developed and flourished in a close knit system for the most part of its developmental story. #Norway

Gassho Zukuri is locally referred to the typology of houses the region of Shirakawa beholds which literally means ‘constructed like hands in prayer’ resembling the hands of a Buddhist monk while sitting in his prayer. The form of the roof also provided higher withstanding capability in times of heavy snowfall with a calculated slope of 60 degrees. The roof was made without nails in some of the houses which provided a large attic space at the top allowing the farmers to cultivate silkworms even in winters after knowing the fact that hot air rises up. The historic villages of #Shirakawa and #Gokayama were designated as the #UNESCO #WorldHeritage site in 1995 which are situated in a lonely and remote river valley of Shogawa stretching across the border of #Gifu and #Toyama Prefectures in central #Japan dating over 250 years ago.

The birth of Jamshedpur predates the great urban planning experiments of the 20th century in the Indian subcontinent like New Delhi, Islamabad & Chandigarh. Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata was looking to build a steel plant in India in the early years of the 20th century after visiting & learning about the growth of industrial towns like Manchester, Pittsburgh & others especially in the western part of the world. While his visit to Pittsburgh he met a noted geologist Charles Page Perin and he asked him to find a worthy place for the same in the Indian subcontinent. The search began in 1904 and it continued for around three years when a small village of Sakchi was found blessed with rich mineral resources like iron, coal & limestone along with a scenic picturesque of the Dalma hills. The village was renamed as Jamshedpur in 1919 by Lord Chelmsford to pay homage to its founder.

The waste consumption of Bengaluru was around 650 tonnes per day in 1988 which increased to around 1450 tonnes per day in 2000 to around 4500 tonnes of garbage per day in 2016 and the majority of it was being dumped in the landfills at the outskirts of the city at three prominent sites of Mayallipura, Mandur and Doddaballapur until when it was blockaded by the local communities of the periphery after suffering from the declining environmental quality for over 10 years.

Streets can be defined as the spine of a city and hence it’s health defines the well being of its citizens.
There were natural pathways in the first phases of human developmental history, now there are different complex mechanised systems running on them in the current mode of development - this is a collective outcome of the previous transitions and it shall thus not just be looked into through the window of only human mobility and transportation. #cities

What has been one of the most dominating object of the ongoing phase for the human race  and its developmental story i.e. smart cities, can be seen to as digitisation of the human urban settlements in an era dominated by the virtual globalisation of the human race from a window at a glance or to as a younger family member from the family of industrial revolution which once changed the structure and nature of the human settlements. The intention behind the vision is quite positive but..

There’s always a difference between a dream and a vision. A dream may be a happening of sub-conscious mind while a vision is based on one’s wisdom in his conscious existence. A dream is based on an individual’s thought process while the vision is based on our collective thought processes put together. To dream of building SmartCities was undoubtedly good but urbanization is one of the toughest thing in this world to be dealt in such easily and that too in this fast paced mode of developments and advancements being experienced by our ongoing civilization.

What has been referred to as a shameful act by the Indian Media in Nepal has originally revealed the face of the humanity which is advancing towards becoming more individualistic over the coming decades as the process of urbanization is intensifying with every passing moment and there are no clues yet to plan those social & natural aspects while formulating urban policies and programs by the government and the persons involved.

For those in favour of densification of cities and urban spaces should see through another window – from the window of carrying capacity of the environment. The carrying capacity has to be studied properly before applying any such densification policies in any region of the world. Moreover, the basic living human values may tend to get lost with an increase in the density of an area – the surplus population also require their share of social space, open spaces, market spaces which are generally overlooked especially in the developing countries. Dhaka has to look wisely through population density planning not via just physical planning providing infrastructures and other things. The main reason behind Dhaka emerging as one of the fastest growing megacities of Asia is the unequal urbanization of the country.
