Sanjit Das

Lanjigarh, Orissa, INDIA

Chief Operating Officer of Vedanta Aluminum Ltd, Dr. Mukesh Kumar, poses for a portrait on raw unprocessed bauxite at the Vedanta plant in Lanjigarh. The huge bauxite deposits in the Niyamgiri hills have led the Vedanta group to set up an alumina refinery at Lanjigarh, making the local population of Dongria Kondh tribespeople fearful for their future. Vedanta Resources has come under immense pressure from human rights and environmental groups to abandon its plans to mine at the Niyamgiri mountains, as the site is considered sacred by the local tribal community.
