i maintain the narmada.org website and would like to express my solidarity with the fasters and the cause. However, i do think that hunger fast as a protest is losing meaning in the face of callous govt. officials. I would rather have the fasters alive and healthy and fight rather than dead or kidney damaged. We have to come up with newer forms of non violent resistance to oppose these stupid projects foisted on people in the name of development.
i will put a link in the narmada.org. keep me posted.
i loved sikkim and the teesta river when i visited many years ago in 91.
