Virgin natural beauty
Every year, with the advent of summer, people flock towards cooler climates to escape the heat, which, in a country like India, is provided mostly by hills and mountains. They provide cooler temperatures and stunning beauty to recharge one's mind and body. Everyone wants to capture such moments and preserve them digitally. The social media does a fine job to remind people about such memories periodically, allowing one to relive those moments, and strive to visit more such places
On the other side of such a beauty, is trash. Incessant growth, with complete disregard towards environmental impact on the part of service providers, combined with vehement apathy towards civic sense and trash disposal responsibility on the part of the tourists, gives rise to a scenario where the trash eventually becomes so unmanageable that the sole reason people visit such places becomes the opposite.
And once such a scenario is reached, the whole ecosystem fails, ranging from natural to economic calamity.
But then, India is huge. A new "virgin natural beauty" is discovered, and people start flocking to the next best thing, leaving behind their discarded beauty, and responsiblity.
