  • Will the old fashioned

    Will the old fashioned "development" ever end in the 21st century? As the Governments can't seem to adopt the measures that force the industry to be more responsible, civil society has long years of struggles ahead of it. Unfortunately.

  • These Baigas and Gonds are

    These Baigas and Gonds are paying the cost for civilisation as Balghat dist has Maganese mines too in Bharveli and share the buffer zone of Kanha National Park and thus their stories of displacement is not new and will only get repeated.

    FYI the acidic water flows into Banjar river, through stream of water, and further into Kanha National Park. The stream passes through farmlands and has destroyed many hectares of land in the way already.

    And we are not even talking about expoitation of local villagers who work for many contractors for 12 hours a day for a meagre pay. Sometime back, one of the contractors swindled the all PF money he was supposed to pay workers and many other continure to do so.
