If Forests Need To Be Burnt For Developmental Purposes, We Don't Need Such Development 

Yes, I am talking about the fire mishap at Aarey Colony, Mumbai. 

On December 3, Monday, a massive fire erupted in the forested area of Aarey Milk Colony in Mumbai's Goregaon space. The control room was informed about the fire at 6:30 pm in the evening after which fire engines and water tankers rushed to the spot. 

Though no casualties were reported, a huge fire engulfed three to four kilometers of this open plot. Now, where many said that the reason behind the fire is unknown, environmentalists alleged that it was an intentional human-made fire for the benefits of real estate lobby.
