2023.06.08 11:12 LauraAndTheBeehive I Posted A Few Months Ago (OP thelivingroomsong), I Need Serious, Genuine Advice With Moving Forward. Questioning My Experiences And Trying To Go Towards Next Steps But Everything Feels Worthless. More Below.

(I don't know how to flair this properly, I'm sorry.) I posted here a few months ago, maybe two (OP / u/,thelivingroomsong) about escaping my abusive household. I escaped, and now I feel like I made the biggest mistake of my life. If anyone can try to give advice on what to do next, or try to nail into my head that I'm not in the wrong, please. I need anything I can get right now.
I escaped my abuser and am currently in a safe space with safe people, but it cost me everything. All I could bring with me were the clothes on my back plus a few articles of clothing, bare necessities, and thensome. Realistically, everything I had has been left behind, including extremely sentimental objects from a long-deceased family member that I know I'll never get back. I no longer have a job, and can't make any moves regarding my bank account (that the abuser somehow has access to) or any legal documents like insurance without exposing my exact location. I feel like I fucked up in the biggest way possible, but I know if I somehow go back there, I'm going to be killed on the spot.
My abuser made a fake missing person report on me and plastered it on their social media, which went viral. This post was then widespread across platforms, including on a few subs on this platform. Originally, I wanted to tell the truth to everyone via a Facebook post from my own account, but now I don't have a phone. That, as well as being locked out of all accounts I have that had two factor authentication applied to, to which I'm now IP banned from making any and all new accounts.
I've called the DV hotline (well, multiple) and no one's been of help. I'm waiting to hear back on legal advice as to whether or not my exposal of my abuser in this type of public manner would be, on my end, illegal and give means to the abuser to sue me for defamation or smearing of character. I don't know if I can somehow sue the abuser for financial reparation on grounds of some form of emotional/physical damages so I can afford medical bills for both mental and physical health services. But I don't know if I'm even considered the victim, as the abuse was never directed at me- but the abuser's spouse. I lived there, and am/was the abuser's child, the spouse is a girlfriend. Although I was never the one being physically (or sexually) abused, I have been physically touched twice (choked, attempted s/a), as well as grabbed, starved, forced to be dangerously sleep deprived, as well as extreme emotional, verbal and mental abuse, all the while witnessing the physical, mental/emotional, verbal, and sexual abuse of his spouse. I don't think any lawyer, DV caseworker, or even person (familial) would consider me a victim when nothing happened to me directly. I wanted to, or feel the need to, change my full legal name to further go into hiding, but even that costs an immense amount of money. The same goes for a new license, SSN card, and general documents to prove I exist.
I can't make money as if I were to open my Paypal account, I'm sure it would shut down the account or lock me out of it due to the same dual authentication on the account, on suspicion of the login not being me. I refuse to run a GoFundMe as I don't want to take away money from people who actually need it. Even if I did get money, I'd rather earn it and give the person who gave me the money something in return.
I don't know what to do. I know I have to tell the truth, because the abuser keeps spreading the narrative of me being 'gone' or had 'run away' while continuously spamming my Facebook Messenger with text messages daily, if not hourly, that I can't even view. I can't afford a lawyer or therapist/counselopsychologist, I'm about to be thrown out of school due to outstanding fees, I can't exactly go outside and apply for a job when I'm being hunted for sport, and I'm a burden to the people who let me into their space. I feel like I don't deserve to be here, in this place. I'm weighing everyone here down, especially financially, and it makes me want to fucking die. I have no family now, or friends, or anyone to ask for help. I'm alone, and feel like I made a mistake. I feel hopeless. I genuinely want to give up.

2023.06.08 11:12 Milkandbroccolini I don't know honestly

I don't know where to go from here. I just don't. I wish I wasn't real or ever born. I wish I was gone so a burden could be lifted from everyone's back. I wish I wasn't such a loser. I wish I wasn't dumb and ugly and stupid. I wish I was cool or something. I don't like being alive. It reminds me of how bad everything is.

2023.06.08 11:12 angry_pidgeon_123 i5 13600 and DDR optimal compatibility

Hello
I'm building my own rig, so I need to ascertain optimal compatibility between parts for both performance and cost. My analysis I need help with, is what type of RAM in quantity and speed I need to install to optimize I5 13600 performance in gaming. Hope you understand my logic flow:
CPU: Intel Core i5 13600K (https://www.intel.co.uk/content/www/uk/en/products/sku/230574/intel-core-i513600-processor-24m-cache-up-to-5-00-ghz/specifications.html) *supports dual channel, and runs up to 5Ghz in turbo, so buying 6Ghz (6000Mhz) RAM pointless? Obviously CPU supports 2 sticks, but not 4 sticks although some optimization can exist there I haven't heard of it... * furthermore, specs say I5 13600 supports up to DDR5 4800 MT/s. Dodging the hardware specifics details so I don't open a bigger can of worms, I jump to the point by example from google: "1600 MHz DRAM is thus capable of 3200 MT/s and is often sold simply as 3200 MHz" * * believing the CPU specs, it means DDR5 is supported, but up to which kind, unknown for sure * point of this discussion is, that I can buy RAM exactly or a little over spec, and save money
Then, I google up this: "*What is 3200 mt s in RAM? MT/s vs MHz (Datarate vs Frequency) in RAM Modules. So, DDR4-3200 memory transmits data at a maximum rate of 3200 MT/s\*8 Bytes = 25,600 MB/s.*" \*\* \* since I5 13600 specs say it can achieve 76.8 GB/s, that means also from spec, DDR5 4800 MT/s \* 8 = 38.4 GB/s \* 2 (from dual channel!?) = 76.8 GB/s \* my **conclusion based on potential insufficient data and coincidence, is that I should buy maximum DDR5-4800 with an I5 13600 processor**", but DDR5-4800 does not mean having 4800Mhz (see \*) as it is sold, so **what's the name of the DDR5 I want to buy exactly?** I guess it would differ by manufacturer, since specs would differ, and even the naming might be misleading 
I've been told this is good: Kingston FURY Renegade RGB 32GB (2x 16GB) 6000MHz DDR5 RAM (latency 32 kind, but in light of this discussion, it could be pointless if my system doesn't support it Another issue: if I only buy 32GB RAM, how is 76.8 GB/s relevant to me since the CPU can't read data that isn't there... meaning to actually use 76.8 GB/s I should have a minimum of 76.8 GB installed? Which means I should use software or games that actually occupy up to that much space simultaneously, and I admit I can only possibly fill up 32GB in gaming to the best of my ability, meaning I don't need by far 76.8GB/s, and could easily get away for years with say, 48GB total RAM in dual channel, just for slack... except, RAM caching should be a reality therefore having more RAM makes sense, but whether it is generally used would be the greatest unknown, and I would guess it's an issue since optimization isn't a concern for today's cheap software. Maybe some benchmarks would clear this issue up. My experience is, that in RAM there is only what the software loads up as it goes, and there is no precaching of resources generally except minimally so having more RAM won't enable software to become more efficient since it wasn't implemented to be so
I've also picked up another quote from google: "*What's the Difference Between 2666MHz and 3200MHz? Most of the time, the difference is* ***insignificant****. The difference between 2666 MHz and 3200 MHz may be roughly 8 FPS.* " \* which is relevant to me since I build my rig for gaming, and in FPS PVP 8 fps matters if the overall fps is 30, since you need a constant feel of the game to get into that zone where you constantly hit your targets, given prediction is necessary, which relies on stability. A difference of 8 FPS is significant since it means random spiking, not a constant a 8 FPS drop. If it can be constantly over 60 fps then it doesn't matter since the human eye can barely make out the difference. Therefore I want more Mhz for greater refinement of fps, but only to what the i5 13600 can handle, which comes back to the original question, does buying DDR5 6000 Mhz make any sense if the CPU's Mhz is 5000Mhz tops (or rather I won't OC beyond)? 
P.S. With this, I plan to plant a RTX 4070, however the compatibility issues with CPU/RAM elude me completely, I need to look at the specs more, and take into account the motherboard of course since the video card is entirely reliant on that in the end. Maybe the CPU/RAM/MB is too slow for an RTX 4070, case in which I should buy a cheaper card. I will also ascertain in another post if necessary if top speed SSD makes sense with the other parts, and finally the motherboard I need to put it all together without paying for stuff I don't actually use or need

2023.06.08 11:12 moongaLovesBally Why the IMF Deal is Extremely Good for Zambia🇿🇲💚

Why the IMF Deal is Extremely Good for Zambia🇿🇲💚
1) Nkongole helps u sort out tuma pressure. That's why most of us love ZamCash, XtraCash x Kasaka loans on our phones aswell as Kaloba coz they really make life smooth. Vapepuka vintu mu Zambia thanks to the IMF deal (Zambia's economic burdens have been removed thanks to the IMF deal)
2) Only people who love & care about u will loan u money. Can yo enemy loan u money? NO! Can a thief lend u money? NO! It's only those that mean well for u that loan u money. That's why i love the IMF coz not only do they care about us but they're also the only friend we have that loves💕 us enough to lend us $1.3 BILLION DOLLARS😍 Kulibe winango pano pachalo anga tikongolese ndrama za so (there's no one else on earth that can lend us such beautiful-huge sums of money). We're so lucky to have a friend like ba IMF x i thank God for them.
3) The IMF money has lifted the extremely heavy debt burden which the PF left us in due to their recklessly borrowing, excessive spending, corruption x plunder of state money. We all saw how the PF were playing around with money x flashing all-over social media.
4) The IMF money coupled with Bally's good policies x leadership have led to a better performing Kwacha. Infact our Kwacha is the words best performing currency🏆 (Google it if u don't believe me). By Christmas dollar will be pa K5.
5) It provides the much-needed forex for our country.
6) The IMF deal signals that the International community has confidence in Zambia. That's why we've even been visited by real world leaders who stand for human rights x equality such as US 🇺🇲 VP Kamala Harris❤️ IMF Boss Kristalina Georgieva💜 x US🇺🇲 Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen🧡 to name but a few.
7) The IMF deal has boosted investor confidence in our country coz investors now know that their money is safe in Zambia🇿🇲 That's why billionaires such as Elon Musk have brought their businesses to Zambia thus creating jobs for our locals.
8) Seeing that we're trusted with money by the IMF, many other countries x lenders have come on board to lend us money coz they now also trust us. But we just don't borrow anyhow we only borrow when we're in need so we haven't borrowed anything from these lenders but it's good that we have them as a backup Incase of rainy days. In short our credit rating has improved tremendously x we're now the country that every lender out there wants to lend their money to.
9) The deal isn't only about money but it also brings the IMF's extensive expertise x technical assistance to Zambia, which helps us reduce inflation x mitigate external shocks x fiscal pressures caused by global market conditions, commodity price fluctuations x economic uncertainty.
The IMF Zambia 🇿🇲🤝 deal is the best thing that's ever happened to our country x it should be supported by every well meaning Zambian.
GOD BLESS IMF🙏🏻
GOD BLESS ZAMBIA🙏🏿
GOD BLESS YOU🙏🏼

2023.06.08 11:11 thecursedmanCLW Just so you know

If i could I'd take all of your pain away for you, I'd take your heart in my hands and keep it safe from all harm again. I'd lock it away safely and stand guard , fighting off everyone who dared too do you any wrong. I don't know if that's necessarily a lover thing or if it's simply my caring side taking over but i do know one thing , i want to protect you from everything. I long to see you smile , a genuine smile that lights up your whole face and makes your eyes sparkle with wonder and desire. Not just any wonder or desire but the wonder and desire that makes you want to feel alive again. I long to see you happy even if you do not want me as anything more than a friend. I still want nothing more but your happiness in the end. If i can save you from the dark abyss i will. If i can watch you take flight , i will and I'll do it with pride as you walk forward on your next path. I'll watch in amazement and awe as my heart swells with overfilling love for you. Then as you progress I'll remain at your side , a lifetime friend who hides the biggest secret of them all. A love so deep that i cannot explain, a love that screams your name. A love that i wish i could give to you as something more than just a friend.
I love you endlessly my dearest friend. I'll never leave your side , no matter what happens. I'm here for now and evermore. Let's fight this life together

2023.06.08 11:10 kyoto_kinnuku What’s the best cleaner for real wood floor with polyurethane finish?

I dunno why this is so hard but after years of living here I still haven’t found anything great. At the home center every time I’ve asked the staff seem bewildered by the idea that the floors are real wood and not some engineered material…. Then they try to convince you it’s not real wood, so I show them pictures of the flooring being installed and video of me doing the finishing. Then they do this look 😐.
The one I used most often from Conan or viva (can’t remember) cleans the floor well enough but if you don’t mop it up really fast it leaves permanent etching in the finish. I threw it down once and worked the mop around the area and it has permanent splash marks etched in now.
And if there’s anything specific to canine-bio-war-crimes that might be helpful as well. I’m worried eventually my house is gonna stink before my dog gets his life figured out 😑.

2023.06.08 11:10 InterestingJennifer The Happiest Day of My Life

One fine California evening last fall, I was working in the study on my PC when it suddenly dawned on me how quiet the house had become. I pushed back in my chair and listened to the silence. From the hall I could hear the ticking of the old grandfather clock and faintly the refrigerator humming in the kitchen. But aside from that, it was silent. Since the kids had grown up and moved out, I had become used to the quiet, but this was unusual. I got up and wandered throughout the house and eventually came to the back porch. As I stepped out onto the porch, I saw my wife sitting contentedly in the porch swing, a comforter wrapped around her as she gazed into the sunset. It was a beautiful California sunset with rays streaming though gold colored clouds, and purple shadows from the mountains beneath. A warm wind blew with the faint smell of burning mesquite. My wife was calling to the dog to stop digging in the garden and he looked up, tail wagging, then went right back to work. It was useless to try and stop him. I walked over to the swing, the porch door creaking to a close behind me. She looked up at me with a gentle smile and said,
“What was the happiest day of your life?”
For a moment I almost responded with a flip answer like, “Why, every day I’ve spent with you dear,” but from the quiet expression on her face, I could see that she wanted a real answer, one that I thought through. So I gazed out at the boiling, red, and orange clouds, ran one hand through what’s left of my hair and thought about it. What was the happiest day of my life.
Well, I remembered the day I graduated from high school and how my dad came up and shook my hand and said, “I’m proud of you son,” and I remembered the day I got married and lifting my wife’s veil for that kiss, and the expression on her face, those dazzling eyes. That was a happy time. I remembered that time in high school when I decked a guy with just one punch. I know now it’s not something to be proud of, but he had said something about my girlfriend and it seemed the thing to do. And I remembered those hot rods we put together and how they beat the rich kid’s cards in illegal street races at 4 AM and how much fun that was. That was a real happy time for me. And then I remembered about the time, years after he came home from Vietnam, my brother smiled again for the first time. And I remembered how I went to see my newborn son that first time and counted ten fingers and ten toes. It would be hard to be that elation.
And as I thought about those happy times, I climbed down off the porch and into the yard to the rope swing I had put up for the grandchildren last year. I sat on the swing, my old bones creaking, and swayed in the breeze, still thinking about the happy times of my life. Of the awards, my first job, my first book sold, the promotions, and grandchildren. And the more I thought about it the more memories came upon me until I realized in surprise that the sun was no longer setting in the west. It was rising in the east. I had spent the entire night pondering the happy times of my life. I dragged myself out of the swing, with some cramps and not a little pain, after all, I’m too old to be spending the night in a porch swing…
And I walked back up to the porch. My wife was sleeping on the swing, still wrapped in the comforter, the dog at her feet, his head on his paws. The creaking of the floorboards woke her up and she smiled softly as I approached.
“Well, did you do it?,” she asked, “Did you think of the happiest moment of your life?"
“Yes,” I said calmly, “I have.”
“And what is it?” she asked.
“The next one,” I replied.

2023.06.08 11:08 panterafan2003 AITA for convincing my girlfriend with psychosis that I wasn't real because I was bored?

So for about 45 minutes last night I put on an act to convince my girlfriend I wasn't real, and I knew she'd fall for it if I sold it because a.) she has delusions b.) she falls for it every time (for example I've faked my death 4 times). I led her to believe I was an emanation her mind conceived in a comatose or reality-detached state to cope with loneliness and eventually deliver her unto the real world with this revelation (appealing to the fact that she was always enamoured by the idea that I could "fix" her.) Everything she used to doubt me, like that I've repeatedly faked my death, I portrayed it as an involution of her self image and attributes because I am of her mental substance (countered that it is a reflection of the fact she has oft-attempted demise herself). I edited date and time of pictures on my phone and explained that a consistent, external universe is internally consistent but her torpid state leaves room for inconsistency. I know among her greatest disorientations is a warped time perception so I misled her as to how long this conversation actually was. All things to make her question reality; stuff like that, I was insistent all the way. I stopped when she cried because she thought that if i wasnt real i would have to depart from her and she'd miss talking to her favourite person. I kind of feel like she's TA because that comes off as guilt tripping. Am I alone in this?

2023.06.08 11:08 solid_vomit What are your favorite things to do on property that you don't hear people talk about often?

We're planning our next trip for 2024 and wanted to do some different things than we've done before. Our trip last year was my first trip for many years and my husbands first trip ever. We prepared by watching a lot of Disney vloggers and when we arrived felt overwhelmed and under prepared despite all the research and planning. We came to realize that vloggers/bloggers (in our opinions) don't give great info a lot of the time. We found that the tips and tricks can be stressful if you're not a Disney pro. We had a much better time when we went with the flow and did as we pleased. SO, with all that said, I've been stalking this group for a few weeks and have seen some things people have said they like to do and started making a list of things we'd like to do too from this. For example, I saw someone say they like to watch the fireworks from the skyliner(!) and that sounds like heaven to me. So please, give me your real world experiences that you never hear other people talk about, that you can't miss on your trips!

Since Osiris was too occupied to study Vex during Lightfall Campaign, I decided to investigate their behaviour on Neomuna. Here is something I assume to be important regarding Vex.
Mission: Under siege
Nimbus - "Looks like all the commotion made the Vex crawl out of their pesky little hidey holes around the city." Osiris - "That's the least of our concerns right now. Push forward, Guardian." Here, we are notified of the Vex presence by Nimbus. We can deduce that Vex was present on Neomuna before the invasion and also had a reaction against the invasion. In the very next area after this exchange, we see Vex fighting against the Shadow Legion in the ZEPHYR CONCOURSE, why? Is there any "object of interest" for Vex at that location? Perhaps, the environmental storytelling. On the other hand, we have Osiris "The Vex Guy" telling us to ignore Vex. Interesting... 
Mission: Breakneck
Ghost - "Rohan, I think we're still fuzzy here. What exactly is the CloudArk?" Rohan - "It's our city's network. our infrastructure, our people, our defences... everything depends on it." Nimbus - "And what we're doing now is stopping the Vex from siphoning energy from the CloudArk's reactor." Ghost - "Just so we're clear-if the CloudArk is lost, what does that mean for Neomuni?" Nimbus - "All our citizens have uploaded their consciousness into the CloudArk. No CloudArk means lights out for everyone in Neomuna" Ghost - "Hold on... these Vex are short-circuiting voluntarily." Rohan - "We haven't observed this kind of behaviour before. Hope you're taking note, Nimbus." (most likely a 4th wall break) Nimbus - "Of the headless robot dance? Yeah, I've seen it before. It's gotta be a way for them to create a gateway to the CloudArk. Or... express themselves... emotionally? I dunno; who can say, honestly?"  Ghost - "It's escaping! Wait... why did it leave?" Nimbus - "Weird. Something's off. Keep going, but... keep an eye out."  Ghost - "And that does it. How's it looking, Rohan?" Rohan - "Hmm. Something's still siphoning Power. Look around for any remaining Vex influence."  Ghost - "Something feels off here. That was a little too easy." This mission is a major entry for our investigation. We are given a rough idea of what CloudArk is, which is the focus of Vex. According to Nimbus, Vex is siphoning power from CloudArk. But we have known Vex for a long time to know that they don't need to rely on power from non-Vex objects to run operations. Which begs the question, if not power, then what? Information? We can also conclude that Vex has no intention of destroying CloudArk. Which is also interesting... Nimbus also says that All the citizens have uploaded their consciousness into CloudArk. Does that mean during this mission Vex was also connected to the consciousness of the citizens of Neomuna? That may explain their Voluntarily Short-circuiting. Is Vex trying to study or understand Neomuni? They are called 'Consumed Goblin'. Consumed by CloudArk? After Rohan's 4th wall break, Nimbus assumes Vex are trying to create a gateway to the CloudArk, or expressing themselves emotionally. Again this suggests they are trying to connect by either CloudArk or emotionally. Boss's Name is CALIXTE(Most Beautiful), SYSTEM WARD FINALITY(Final protector of the system?) Again suggesting that Vex are not here to destroy. But are protecting the System. Which system? CloudArk? This may be big if it is true. The boss also runs away which was given importance by Ghost. After defeating the said boss, Ghost describes it to be a little too easy. Running and being east to defeat suggests that the boss is not a combat frame, but still a warden. Then warden of what? another non-combat place where the word Warden is used is for Childcare. Did we just defeat a Beautiful Vex Childcare Warden? Shit!! 
I would have continued this but a lot of theories are being generated in my mind which may influence my upcoming investigations. so I must take a break and let it sink in.
Theories like Vex are defending CloudArk and the people of Neomuna along with it. It may open a path to a possible alliance with Vex in future.

Edit: I messed up the structure. feel free to correct me.

2023.06.08 11:06 Estimate0091 Options for privacy in real estate ownership, and RLTs

If you have experience with this:
1) What are my options to buy a real estate property (primary house) but have my name not appear in public records anywhere? This is in California. I understand that titles, mortgages, and property tax info are public records. What are the pain points for each of those, and anything else I'm missing? For instance: would sellers be wary of anonymous buyers? Would mortgage lenders refuse loans if done with a privacy vehicle?
2) How would the above integrate with a revocable living trust?
3) I see houses that are titled to family trusts. Does this offer a "first layer" of privacy protection with minimal fuss?

2023.06.08 11:06 lentils234 Unregulated tourist influx: Kashmir dreads the final straw that will break the Himalayas’ back

Tourism is a small but important part of Kashmir’s economy. However, in the name of tourism, the government should not put the fragile and already-strained natural resources and public infrastructure in the region under even more pressure, lest it lead to a complete destruction of the beautiful valley, which is home to 7 million people.
Four years after India made Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) its youngest Union territory, the region is expected to receive around 2 crore (20 million) tourists this year. This was revealed by the lieutenant governor of the Union territory Manoj Sinha in April while laying the foundation stone of a medical college in the outskirts of Srinagar.
Sinha said that the number of tourists J&K is set to receive during this year would break all previous records of tourist influx into Kashmir.
Will the Union territory, especially the ecologically fragile Kashmir valley, be able to accommodate such a huge number of tourists?
What about the amount of waste 2 crore tourists will generate? Does the Union territory have the infrastructure to treat this waste scientifically, considering that the number of tourists visiting is more than twice the population of the region?
Do we have scientific waste management systems in place in Srinagar and other tourist places of J&K?
In this article I will be explaining all this with facts and figures.
Shrinking farmlands and tourism
Tourists who visit Kashmir are fascinated by the natural beauty while they move around on the Jammu–Srinagar highway (National Highway 44). They are often seen taking pictures in the saffron fields of Pampore or with the mustard flowers elsewhere in the valley (which bloom in abundance around the spring season— March to April).
Does the Union territory have the infrastructure to treat this waste scientifically, considering that the number of tourists visiting is more than twice the population of the region?
When tourists visit Pahalgam, they take selfies near the apple trees that dot the landscape on the way to this beautiful tourist resort.
Imagine what will happen if the beauty of this landscape is allowed to perish? There will be no reason for tourists to visit Kashmir. More importantly, it will become well-nigh impossible for Kashmiris to live in Kashmir.
The government’s own data reveals that agriculture landholding in J&K has come down drastically. As per a report published on 10th agriculture census (2015–16) by the financial commissioner of revenue for the erstwhile state of J&K, the total number of operational holdings in the state was 14.16 lakh, operating on 8.42 lakh hectare of land.
This was 14.49 lakh holdings operating on 8.95 lakh hectare of land in the 9th agriculture census ( 2010–11).
This means that in a mere five-year period, J&K had witnessed a decrease of 2.27 percent in the number of holdings and a decrease of 5.92 percent in the operating area under agriculture.
The average holding size in J&K during the 10th agriculture census (2015–16) stood at 0.59 hectare. This has come down further in the 2021–22 agriculture census whose final report is yet to be made public.
As per the 2015–16 agriculture census, around 84 percent of farmers in J&K were marginal farmers and 11.29 percent, 4.10 percent, 0.78 percent and 0.04 percent farmers had small, semi-medium, medium and large land holdings respectively.
Marginal farmers are those who have less than 1 hectare of land holdings, small farmers have 1–2 hectare of land holdings, semi-medium farmers have 2–4 hectare of land holdings, medium farmers have 4–10 hectare of land holdings, and large farmers have more than 10 hectare of land holdings.
In the 9th agriculture census, the average land holding in J&K was 0.62 hectare and between 2010–11 and 2015–16 agriculture censuses, there has been a decrease of 0.03 hectare of agriculture land holding.
The unofficial figures say that the agricultural land has shrunk further in the last five–six years and is now only around 0.5 hectare. If this downward spiral continues, I believe that in the next 25 to 30 years, 90 percent of the rural population in J&K, especially in the Kashmir valley, will become landless.
We will see only concrete structures on our agricultural land. It will have serious consequences for our agriculture economy and tourism will be severely impacted as well. There will be more floods as our wetlands and lakes are choked and the built up concrete area doesn’t allow water to seep into the ground.
Unscientific waste disposal and illegal mining
In future, shrinking farmlands will not only impact our agriculture and tourism but will also have a direct impact on management of our municipal solid waste.
In J&K, 90 percent of the urban local bodies, including the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC), Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) and smaller councils and committees have no official landfill sites. Waste is not treated as per the Municipal Solid Waste Rules, 2016. Even in Srinagar city, the only garbage dump site located at Achan Saidpora is choked and emits an obnoxious smell, especially during summer months.
Enough land isn’t available in our towns and cities to set up scientific landfill sites. In hilly towns, this is even more of a challenge, especially in Ramban, Doda and Udhampur, where municipal solid waste is dumped unscientifically in forests or waterbodies.
During the last decade, the SMC has not been able to acquire even 50–60 acre of land for creating a landfill as an alternative to the overburdened Achan Saidpora site.
In 2017, the then deputy chief minister Nirmal Singh, who was also the Minister for Housing & Urban Development Department (HUDD), while responding to a question from a legislator of Srinagar, Mubarak Gul, said on the floor of the J&K assembly that a committee had been constituted under the district magistrate of Srinagar to look for land to create a new landfill site in Srinagar but the committee could not find even 10 acre of land to set up the new landfill site.
It is a well-known fact that Srinagar and a majority of the districts in J&K have small landholdings and most of the land is already occupied by shopping complexes or housing colonies and finding large patches of land to set up landfill sites or garbage dump sites is a herculean task.
This is the reason that a majority of our water bodies, such as lakes, wetlands, rivers and streams, have become waste dump sites and this author had to move a formal application before the National Green Tribunal (NGT) to ensure a clean-up of the Doodh Ganga river in the Srinagar–Budgam area.
This waterbody is being used to dump solid waste at multiple locations by local residents. The Geology and Mining Department has auctioned this stream for riverbed mining with effect from September 2021 to 2026. The project proponent is mining as deep as 10 metre while only mining till 1 metre depth is allowed.
Huge cranes and JCB are also used for extracting sand, boulders and gravel, which is in violation of the J&K Minor Mineral Concession Rules 2016 and the guidelines of J&K State Environmental Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA).
In addition, the SMC and a few other government bodies have set up around 13 wastewater pump stations on the banks of Doodh Ganga, which flush out untreated water and sewage into the stream in violation of Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974. Keeping these violations under consideration and after providing the material facts, the NGT imposed a penalty of ₹35 crore on the government of J&K in October this year
In March this year, a ₹3 crore penalty had already been imposed. The money was released from the coffers of SMC, the Department of Geology and Mining and the municipal committees of Chadoora and Budgam.
In the Poonch district of Jammu, the local municipality is using the Poonch river as a garbage dump site. In this case, too, a few months back this author had to move an application before the NGT. Notice was issued to the district magistrate, Poonch and the pollution control committee, asking for a detailed report from them. The case is listed for hearing in July.
Conclusion
Heaps of plastic waste can be seen in the tourist places of Kashmir, such as Gulmarg, Pahalgam, Sonamarg, Yusmarg and Doodhpathri. The government should seriously think about banning plastic in these tourist spots.
The pilgrims visiting the Amarnath cave are littering in the high altitude mountains, which is even more dangerous because the waste does not decompose easily in the freezing weather at such high altitudes. The cave is also adjacent to the magnificent Kolahoi glacier and the waste acts like a hot knife through butter, trapping sunlight and cutting through the white snow and ice.
People visit the cave for spiritual reasons, but when they engage in anti-nature activities by throwing plastic, food and other wastes in the pristine glaciers and mountains, it leads to environmental destruction.
In Srinagar city alone, around 500 metric tonne of waste is generated daily and this quantity goes up during the tourist rush in summers. Unfortunately not even 10 percent of this waste is treated.
Same is the case with other tourist places of J&K such as Gulmarg, Sonamarg and Pahalgam. When 2 crore tourists visit J&K in a year, how will authorities manage them? Do we have scientific landfill sites? What about the carbon footprints these tourists will leave?
So it is advisable that the government must first concentrate on ensuring that all tourist places have a scientific waste management system in place. Plastic must be completely banned. No food items packed in plastic wrappers should be sold at tourist resorts.
The pilgrims coming for pilgrimage to the Amarnath cave should not be allowed to carry any plastic packed food materials and the number of pilgrims visiting the shrine should also be reduced, as recommended by Nitesh SenGupta Committee report.
Tourism is a small but vital part of Kashmir’s economy. But we must not let unregulated tourism put an unbearable strain on the natural resources and infrastructure of the region. By doing so, we may earn quick bucks for a few years, but it will ultimately result in Kashmir becoming a trashbowl.
Let us not allow Kashmir valley to become a trash valley.
