Having read all the post-review comments, I am equivocal however just want to add a well said quote by India's great moral leader Mohandas K. Gandhi that there is enough on Earth for everybody's need, but not enough for everybody's greed. Today, Gandhi's insight is being put to the test as never before.
Well done Ms. Sunita Narain. We look forward to your next post.

The affect on water ecology, associated food chains, food web, fisheries, and other allied socio-economic activities and its impact on livelihood of communities living along the river, must be taken into consideration while coming to any decision.

This is a very big issue in Rajasthan. I was in Tal Chapar Wildlife Sanctuary in Churu district in October 2012 and mining was on in full swing with heavy machinery very close to the Sanctuary. Complete hills are being slowly decimated, destroying the habitat of thousands of local as well as migratory birds.

Very interesting information, but one wonders what are the criteria to decide the success of the model. Is it employment generation or sustainable green projects? I guess for every village the need will be different and the authority with Panchayat can be very useful if used Judiciously.
The power to govern must be given to the assemblies of people such as Gram Sabhas, not the Gram Pradhans or the panchayat leaders. Only then we will see true decentralisation. Direct democrcy is not longer unwielddy but technically feasible.
