as the protests against the hydel projects across the crucial and magnificent teesta river continues, there is an interesting article in the ecoworld blog.

raises lot of interesting questions. we, as a nation, as a nation that wastes and treats electricity as its birthright have gone too far in asking more and more from our rivers, coastal areas and ecosystem to cater to our luxury.

many rivers like teesta are under huge hit of dams that has been built or will be built soon on top of fake eia's, sham public hearings and blatantly false facts. oh yeah, they add to gdp figure that makes india galloping in world financial charts at the same time plunging india into a unlivable country especially for its hundreds of millions of rural people who depend on vital ecosystems for survival.
