the latest issue of sandrp, has scathing stories on the narmada waters coming out of the SSP dam.

this project, a brutal one - probably the most brutal of them all -, has been repeatedly touted as the golden project of india by development mongers.

but day after day, skeletons keep on tumbling out of this unsustainable project. the shocking latest reports that says that water has been diverted from drought prone regions to industries.

i guess, industries are probably the new struggling sector of india. so only they are given land (forcibly acquired) at throw away price, water given free, forests and mountains opened up so that they can rape these natural resources.

well, when it comes to development of india, looting in name of development is a common thing.(the mammoth narmada SSP dam. a brutal project displaced hundreds of thousands of people amidst fake EIA's, world bank pullout, delays, false propaganda and state brutality. even now continuous abuse is taking place on this unsustainable project)
