In perspective: citizens of Delhi and Renuka Valley. Wondering how Delhi is in the national interest and Renuka valley is not?

The Renuka Dam Project proposed over the river Giri Ganga (a tributary of the Yamuna) located some 300km away from Delhi, is a joint project of the governments of Himachal Pradesh (HP) and Delhi, to be constructed by the Himachal Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (HPPCL) in Sirmaur district of HP. While HP hopes to generate 40MW of power from this project, Delhi hopes to meet 1250 MLD of its total 3500 MLD requirement from this project.

This documentary explores the impact of mining on Goa’s environment from the perspective of its citizens.

Goa is the second smallest state in India, with a total land mass of 3702 sq kms, and is one of the world's 12 bio-diversity hot-spots. While the largest industry is Tourism, conversely the second largest is mining. 8% of this state’s land is already under mining, mostly for iron ore, which is largely exported to China. Iron ore exports from Goa increased from 229,42,000 tons (Rs. 4645 crores) to 247,17,000 tons (Rs. 6117 crores) in 2004-05, and to 253,14,000 tons (Rs. 17719 crores) in 2005-06.
