Sanjit Das

Lanjigarh, Orissa, INDIA

Local Kondh villagers sit next to the makeshift gate that they have set up to stop Vedanta officials from accessing the proposed mining area. 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.
