as india moves relentlessely over 8 to 10% gdp growth, as the clueless indian government offers multi thousand crore package to farmers after sleeping on the very problem at which this money is being thrown at, one thing remains forgotten.

the hapless people of narmada valley dam project remain still displaced and not compensated. first we throw in a monster of a project at their families, stab them by throwing away from their homes and now just plain 'dont care' attitude of their plight.

former water commission chairman ramaswamy iyer puts it correctly:
Let right be done. If you cannot rehabilitate, do not displace.

may i add, "if you cannot bring true development at least dont bring monster destruction"
