A big price to pay for petty PERSONAL gains

(L) The Umtyngngar River en-route to Sohra has gone dry due to sand quarrying. How many more rivers have gone dry? Do we even know how many rivers we have in Meghalaya today? (R) Unregulated quarrying along the way to Sohra and Dawki have marred the landscape of Meghalaya and destroyed its fragile environment. Is this what tourists pay to come to see in Meghalaya? Who will put a stop to this?
