  • Description
  • In vivid visuals and stunning sound bytes, panning Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, local people speak out against commercial interests soaking up their water resources. Issues are starkly brought out – the sale of a part of the Sheonath river to a water firm in Chhattisgarh; a human chain against the sale of the Malampuzha reservoir in Kerala; tribal protest against the diversion of the Bhavani; and struggles against the biggest cola multinational in Shivaganga, Tamil Nadu, and Mehndigunj in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh.
