2 dams, 2 different places, 2 different cultures, 2 different languages - but same story and same forest ranges. the story of fake development.

as the athirapilly dam in thrissur district, kerala proceeds at break necks speed to get clearance, the gundia dam (also called gundya) in hasan district, karnataka comes for clearence at bull dozing speed - the forests and the rivers on which the dam is to be built stands as mute witness to the spectacular destruction that is about to come.

as the kerala forum points out, electricity in kerala can be easy saved/generated/etc in a much cleaner and also much efficient manner so that unwanted dams can be avoided.

but in this mania called development, which indian's elite and middle class so easily gets fooled about, the politicians, officials and contractors push destructive projects with the sole aim of making a killing in these multi mega hundreds of crores of money involved.

bravo india. bravo development.
