THe Damn Dam has become a “fasting” reason for both the head of the govt as well as the protesting activists who wanna stall the dam until the displaced 35 and odd thousands are rehabilitated. The govt argues that it is doing all it can to solve the issues araising out of raising the height of the dam. I was just reading that out of the 3000 and odd large dams in the 20 in India have busted the dam damning activists claim. The displaced are also huge in nos the average number of people displaced by a Large Dam is 44,182 (Arundhati roy). During the twentieth century, 45,000 large dams were built in 140 countries, complicated projects that are now being recognized as major environmental and humanitarian disasters. But time and tide wait for none. The developmental wheel has to turn and at the same time the displaced need to be taken care of rehabilitated.
Acquiring a multi domensional protesting issue the dam stood at the center of a thirsting gujaratis (Kuchiis) and the displaced poor as well as the amir khan (one of those stupid celebs who wants to meddle in each and every issue) while it is understandable of the plight of the victims. See another moronic tale of narration by the Pulitzer prize winning (God of small things) Arundhati roy who also falls in to the same category that of Amir. Its the price of development one pays inevitably.
