Actor Aamir Khan, Div Com Ladakh discuss Water Conservation measures

LEH, SEPTEMBER 19: Bollywood Superstar Aamir Khan during his visit to Leh today called on Divisional Commissioner Ladakh Saugat Biswas here.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

 During the interaction, discussions were held on various subjects ranging from film shooting in Leh and Kargil districts with proactive involvement of locals and water conservation measures.

Giving details about the extensive work being carried out in the field of watershed management by his NGO Paani Foundation, Khan said NGO has already covered 75 talukas in Maharashtra and has involved over 4000 villages of the State in watershed management. They have also instituted Satyamev Jayate Water Cup, which is awarded every year to the best performing village in the field of watershed management.

Subsequently, it was decided that a team of officers and elected representatives from Ladakh will be sent to Maharashtra to attend workshops with the Paani Foundation and study the ground level implementations of the successful voluntary civic action programme.

With regard to involvement of locals in Bollywood industry, Div Com urged Khan to explore possibilities of shooting his upcoming films in the picturesque locales of both the districts of Ladakh.

Aamir Khan revealed that his production team is planning film shooting in the region in the coming year in which various stakeholders from the region will be involved.

Deputy Chairman, LAHDC Leh and Executive Councillor Tourism Tsering Sandup was also present during the interaction.
