the continuing tragedy of eloor has been chronicled in this blog. although it is not being captured on daily basis, eloor , the tragedy, unfolds every day.

the latest being the sulphuric acid gas leak from FACT (Fertilisers and Chemicals Travancore) factory in eloor. and this time the gas leak not only affected the people of eloor but also Kalamassery.

only when the next bhopal occurs in eloor, will the authorities and the policy makers wake from their very deep slumber. until then blatantly polluting factories like FACT will keep on adding useless points to our gdp score card, a score card that benefits only the rich and kicks out the environment and the marginalised people.
