July 17, 2013 | Dark twist to bright tale

It seems there is no way (given our 'donations' funded democracy)that one could effectively regulate all the resorts that have sprung up in / around Corbett, let alone check on the nefarious activities going on there. Perhaps one thing that could be done is to institute a FUND that would provide incentives / rewards to help track down tiger poachers / killers. Such a Fund could be set up by the Corbett resorts & hotels and if enough moolah is collected, part could also be used to enhance payment of compensation to farmers whose cattle are lifted by tigers. Also, the question of tiger density would have to be addressed sooner or later.

Kudos to Sunita Narain for bringing to light the nexus between the Govt & the Gas producers. I remember her fight long ago for unleaded-fuel in which, again, the Supreme Court refused to accept the arguments of Oil companies and automobile manufacturers, who were reluctant to use catalytic converters. Today the resident of cosmopolitan cities, particularly Delhi, is indebted to people like Sunita Narain & Supreme Court for a far cleaner ambient air quality

We played a tiny part in pointing out that 98% of the available gas was made available to the industry and that there was no shortage of gas (before the Supreme Court).

This is our submission before the GOM headed by Mr Antony

The missionary zeal with which CSE pursues such issues is truly commendable

Thank you for a very timely editorial.

Can we members of civil society ask a simple question, "Why should we allow our lives to be held at ransom, by the powers to be?

Why should the interests of one large corporation be allowed to get precedence over the interests of an entire nation?

Finally, Is anybody listening?

Very nice and to the point. I stay in Bangalore and I see so many people (owning cars/bikes) commuting in cycles just because of health reasons. How can a government be so insensitive to such non-polluting, health beneficial mode of Transport and not curb the most polluting vehicles like Taxis and autos which run on adulterated fuels (Kata oil)?

One single word: Bravo!

A much-awaited article, looking straight into reality. Let's hope it will force the elite to look into its un-civilising effect on our city! But do they consider it as their city also? Let's hope they do! All of us are required to re-civilise Kolkata, to make it again a place where children, old people, pedestrians, cyclists, and car-riders when out of their car, can equally enjoy the city in a safe and dignified manner.

The misuse of public properties (here it referred only to land in rural areas) starts with those who are powerful. To continue occupying Govt. House after retirement is one such issue. Misuse of Govt. vehicles, resources, peons & drivers is common. Misuse of power endorsed by holding a particular position is considered to be a matter of pride.
A very good decision by judiciary system.
Similar situation prevails in urban areas for public (& private) properties. The delay in giving ruling helps mafias (small or organized) to become more powerful.
Hope some fast action in such cases will be taken by all courts.

No one has time to think about our health; it is only about corporate profit. Government forgets how high a price people pay for gas or electricity. It's only GDP growth(of not nations but certain people) that matters.
