"india is on an severe growth path", "india is next america", "india's economic boom will lead it from developing to developed country", "india has unparalled hydel, mining resources which can propel its development"

these are the routine statements from those who bulldoze destructive projects, dams, polluting red tag industries -in name of development- on environment and people who depend on the environment for their life and livelihood.

the secretary of union ministry of power, tells that full potential of india's hydel capacity is 1.50 lakh mw and we should harness it fully.

narmada struggle, the ongoing struggle in athirapally, gundya, dandeli, tipaimukh dam in north east, many dam projects in sikkim and himachal pradesh are all against proposed dams which will screw up the livelihood of people (tribals especially) and destroy the forest ecology.
most of these projects are unsustainable and bulldozed via fake EIA, fake public hearings etc and are pushed ruthlessly.

dandeli hydel dam exemplifies this fake development. there are huge questions on this project and it will destroy one of the few river rafting spots in entire india apart from screwing up forest ecology, all in name of a meagre 18mw.

moef has rightly (and perhaps one of the very few instances in which moef has thought correctly) denied permission to the dam.

the struggles against ill conceived and fake hydel dams show how skewed and fake the real development in india is happening.

(the chalakudy river location on which the athirapally dam is being proposed. will the river withstand another assasult on it)
