  • Now we know that in the name

    Now we know that in the name of " a resettlement plan", the government only unsettles and freely tramples and crushes. Its a pathetic condition not because we're allowing India's largest FDI to set shop but because we have always celebrated growth at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives. The government vacates village folk by crushing and burning down their entire lives... much like using a one-time spray cockroach repellent. Can someone please airlift Naveen Patnaik and Jairam Ramesh to govindpur and give them 2 lakh rupees (the equivalent of compensation that a small beetle vine owner will get from POSCO) and ask them to start a life from scratch?
    Good photos Sayantan. I only wish they were displayed larger. I look forward to reading your story on POSCO in greater detail in the DTE magazine.

    Govt should make an arrangement for job for those who lost their land and livelihood. Hyderabad airport settlement is the best example for this...
