i've been reading about the Narmada Bachao Andolan because it has been in the news the past few weeks. i have as a result of this been reading the article by my namesake, Arundhati Roy...... it is gut wrenching to say the least.... the details are many and minute... and the research and passion that have gome into writing it are undeniable. what remains though is the issue which i had a very vague idea about. ensconced as we are in our terribly antiseptic urban life, and for most of us this will remain another "news item", i wish we would take the time to read up and sign our support. the www.narmada.org gives lots of info on this.
