if we see a hill
we mine it
if we see a river
we dam it
if we see a coast
we construct it
if we see people in these places
we shoo them afar away

we need development
at any cost
we need growth
over any dead body
we need mad money
for we need to enjoy

this song is apt for the bauxite mining proposal that is floating around in vizag area of the jerilla hill ranges. with all machinations, fakism, bypassing of rules in place, mining is touted to bring development, prosperity and what not to this area. forget about people living here, forget about the impact on ecosystem and forget about the rules and laws that is related to mining as it pertains to schedule areas.

only thing that matters is mad development and mad money.
