A blog about the state of Uttarakhand

Uttarakhand state, a hilly region of the Indian Himalaya, is home to some of the oldest living creatures on Earth. With a rich and diverse history, it has been somewhat forgotten in the midst of India’s current focus on economic development. In this article, author Sanjay Kishore hopes to create awareness about Uttarakhand and its natural beauty.

Introducing the State of Uttarakhand

The new state of Uttarakhand was created in recent years. It is a state carved out of the northern part of Uttar Pradesh and it shares borders with Tibet, Nepal and Himachal Pradesh.

How to deal with natural disasters

Disaster management is not a new concept, it has been around for some time now. However, natural disasters are becoming more frequent and more lethal which begs the question as to how people can prepare themselves better. Here are some recommended tips to deal with natural disasters:

How to live in Uttarakhand

Uttarakhand is a beautiful state in the northern part of India. The weather is perfect for mountain climbing, and its rich biodiversity includes more than 200 species of wildlife. The state is also the most popular destination for tourists to visit India because it has an inexpensive cost of living, beautiful scenery and ecotourism opportunities.

Uttarakhand Vidhan Sabha

The Uttarakhand Vidhan Sabha was established on November 9, 2000 with the passage of the Constitution (37th Amendment) Act. It replaced all existing legislative institutions in the region and is a unicameral legislature.  After the formation of the state in 2000, the General Assembly was constituted with a total of 70 elected MLAs and 17 nominated members. The session was held from January 22 to March 17 and formed four committees on Uttarakhand Vidhan Sabha.  The Uttarakhand Vidhan Sabha is a state legislative assembly that was first constituted in February 2008. 



Uttarakhand Tourism

One of the most significant changes in Uttarakhand has been the opening of the state to tourism. In the past, Uttarakhand was closed off and residents did not have access to tourists. Now, there are many tourist spots like Haridwar and Rishikesh that receive a large number of travelers.  Uttarakhand is known as the “verdant state of Gods”, a phrase coined by poet Rabindranath Tagore. This beautiful state, stretching across the northernmost region of India and a part of Uttar Pradesh, is home to six major rivers that flow from the Himalayas and into the Ganges. Its ancient forests, deep gorges and snow-capped mountains provide natural beauty for all visitors. It also has some world-class sightseeing destinations such as Rajaji National Park, Nanda Devi National Park, Kanha Tiger Reserve and many more.


The Uttarakhand state is facing many issues. In the last two years, there have been intense bouts of violence, as well as new infrastructure development. The government has made promises to provide better facilities for its citizens, but until that happens, locals are only left with hope in seeing the state improve over time.
