imagine a scene, in real life (and not in movie), wherein several thousands people run helter skelter on a monster chasing them.

well in this case it is around 10,000 villagers running scared on a proposed industrialisation move by our friendly polluty, environmentally screwy SIPCOT.

near erode, already hit by massive pollution due to easy and wilful effluent discharge, these villagers are now at the mercy of 'industries'.

gone are the days when bad guys were looking real bad in physique as well as in dialogue. nowadays bad guys are the industries and industrialists who make tons of money and who talk suave english and who does not care a hoot towards clean production or community or environmental regulations.

when development is the monster, nice english talking suave educated industrialists are the monster drivers.
