    Seems like rains have stopped in Gharwal region - Heavy damage to the Public infrastructure and personal property is still being reported. Many areas cut off. Food and other daily utility items have gone short. The yatra still remains stopped.

    But the good news no new damage due to rains being reported.

    Though the water released from the dams flooding the approach plains areas of UP.

    LOL :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

    To me it sounds like a good news. Tehri jheel is a beautiful place and having houseboats will increase tourism and of course revenues for UK Govt. Regarding the Scuba diving. They could show Old Tehri City which is submerged in the water. If they do the marketing well, they may be able to pull a decent amount of tourists.
