please read a nailing editorial by hindu regarding the Athirapilly hydroelectric project at .

this editorial qualifies for the best editorial ever written on the discussion of the rain forests vis-a-vis developedment.

i have seldom seen a brilliant editorial like this one in recent times. the editorial summarises the athirapally situation beautifully as follows:
Finding non-polluting sources of energy is of paramount importance, but a far-sighted policy should recognise that an assault on the natural environment is unacceptable in a framework of sustainable development. The last remaining rainforests must not be sacrificed in the name of progress
