Samuel Aranda

Harsud, Madhya Pradesh, India

A girl pumps water from a water source near Harsud village in an area that will be submerged after the proposed construction of several dams as part of the Narmada River project. This involves the construction of 30 large, 135 medium and 3000 small dams to harness the waters of the Narmada and its tributaries. The proponents of the dam claim that this plan would provide large amounts of water and electricity which are desperately required for the purposes of development. Opponents of the dam question the basic assumptions of the Narmada Valley Development Plan and believe that its planning is unjust and inequitable and the cost-benefit analysis is grossly inflated in favour of building the dams.
