Nobody is clear about the need for a dam in Renuka valley. Despite this, the people of the valley are being displaced without adequate compensation. Posted on 18 Jul, 2017 05:48 AM

When I meet Puran Chand, an activist in the forefront of the anti-Renuka dam struggle, he dictates from the two much-thumbed pages of his notebook the several objections he has against the government’s plan for the rehabilitation of people displaced by the Renuka dam.

The opening of the header tunnel for Renuka dam has already been constructed.

Shimla celebrated World Water Day 2014 with students of Bishop Cotton and St. Thomas School who watched movies and participated in discussions on water conservation. Posted on 31 Mar, 2014 10:29 PM
