Residents of a nondescript village in Madhya Pradesh lost their livelihoods to sand mining but this illegal trade didn't make the limelight until an IAS officer was suspended in UP.

Pahanbarri was a small village of 3000 people in Madhya Pradesh's Hoshangabad district. The 200-year old village was known for its fertile soil, thanks to being located on the banks of the Tawa, a tributary of the Narmada river. On August 1 this year, the river changed its course, broke its bank and entered the village. A thick layer of sand, up to four feet in height, now covers the thriving paddy and vegetables sown in 500 acres of its agricultural land about three months back.
