About the Event

DOC FILM|Dammed (Eng/Hindi/50mins) Dirs.Kavita Bahl & Nandan Saxena. Over 11 million Indians have been 'displaced' by large dams. Onkareshwar Dam shall displace another 50,000 and Sardar Sarovar over 2,00,000. In September 2012, the NHDC, in-charge of the Onkareshwar Dam, decided to raise the water level, in defiance of the orders of the High Court. The residents of 30 villages of the reservoir area of the Omkareshwar Dam sat on a Jal Satyagraha. After 17 days, the state government announced that it would implement the orders of the Supreme Court of India. The irony was complete. NHDC Limited, and its band-wagon of foreign banks and investors have made 90 per cent profit after tax in the last three years. While the corporations make super profits, the poorest of the poor become the orphans of the dams. Collab: CMS Vatavaran
