      Synopsis:

      For the Adivasi communities of Khammam, East Godavari and West Godavari districts in AP and Kunta block in Chattisgarh and Motu Block in Orrissa, life has become uncertain, since the government's decision to commence the construction of the Polavaram Dam - the largest dam by far in India surpassing the Sardar Sarovar Dam in the area of submergence (631 sq km), Forest land, number of villages (300) and number of people (conservative estimate 2 lakhs) affected.

       

      For them the lives seem "Damned"...what does it mean to leave a life that they have known for generations and for people who might never have stepped out of their forest life? How do governments view displaced people in this day and date? The argument is always that for the larger good, some have to make sacrifices...but is it all that simple a matter - a matter of compensation? After all this, does this project serve its purpose? For that matter is there a need to relook at large projects like these at a time when we are beginning to realize that 'small is sustainable’?
