  • After the euphoria we felt

    After the euphoria we felt reading about all 12 designated villages rejecting the mines, it is depressing to read that it may all come to naught because Vedanta has the money and the clout to buy out not just individual politicians but, in all probability, entire parties. Tribal people have never had a voice and even though the people of Niyamgiri have spoken loud and clear, there is every possibility that they will be completely ignored if the next government chooses to side with Vedanta.

    In all this, let us not forget our own guilt in all this. We are using more and more aluminium in our daily lives and, as long as there is a demand, Vedanta and others will do whatever it takes to keep the supply going... a few obscure tribes are, in their opinion, not worth considering.

  • Rightly pointed out Mr.

    Rightly pointed out Mr. Mehta. Tribals can sustain. But modern people can't. We're driven by GREED. 'Sustainability' is a myth for us.

    Unfortunately, those who have zero carbon footprint get choked first and we, if suffering from asthma, find out costlier medicine, chopped down tree to make space for a new AC car and curse the God!

    Still, desperately hoping, this time Niyam Raja will save himself...
