Mission Saranda: A War for Natural Resources in India

Gladson Dungdung
This book addresses the contemporary issues of mining and communities in Eastern India. It documents the struggles and the human rights violations in Saranda Forest which is one of the most extensive surviving Sal forests in Asia, a centre of bio-diversity and a repository of India's rich Adivasi cultural heritage. Its destruction by mining companies aided by the government is testimony to the short term thinking of a modernising state blinded by its rhetoric of development.
