|A Typical Pasture land for Yaks in Shingkhar|
Any one know why so many "tsedar yaks" have been brought to Shingkhar ? this is my personal concern to some extent general concern of all Shingkharpas. Its good that some people are getting involved in saving the lives of those innocent animals. But my question is that to what extent and how long? I am happy to know that so many innocent animals have found heaven in Shingkhar. But My concern is again to what end???
Not long ago we all, in union fought against a foreign idea of golf course in the name of conservation and preservation of Shinkgkhar's tradition. I think all of us stood firm and strong and won the battle in question.
Now that we have so many influx of Tsedar yaks (more than 100 now and still more to come) Given a limited grazing area, Isn't this going to pose a serious threat to the survival of local livestock? Isn't this going to create over grazing in our limited pasture land? Isn't this going to degrade our limited pasture land in times to come? Isn't this going to hamper the productivity of our local livestock? Can we know the reason why those Tsogpas have chosen to transfer all those animals in Shingkhar alone? ?
It may be noble initiative saving lives of any beings but it doesn't mean it should come at the cost of some people's livelihood.
Being a yak rearing family, my family is first in line who is affected. The huge number of wild yaks roaming in the common pasture land have created havoc and have made it very difficult for my dad and sister to look after our heard. As much as they are havoc they are found to be menace for the survival of our herd.
Now my dad is going to up yak rearing. Although there are various other reasons, this happens to be the prime reason. Tomorrow it it could be any one who will have to give up cattle rearing.
By the way, I am amazed to know that all Shingkharpas have become Buddhisatowas overnight.......
have a god day folks
