The following discussion brings out the need for being good in thought, word and deed in today's world which is being made a mess of by modern civilization:
… With Anderson dead and having escaped imprisonment, Bhopal gas leak victims continue to suffer, Ms. Bee strikes a note of caution. “The new government should think about the consequences of going head over heels to woo industry without paying sufficient attention to the poor institutional response mechanisms in the event of an environmental disaster.”


Yes, the seriousness of the contradiction between action and democratic constitutional provisions regarding gross violation of right to life and living cannot be overemphasised. This is brought out glaringly in the classic: A Dirge for the Dammed(2014) by Keerti Ramachandra,hachetteindia, which is an English translation of the Marathi classic Jhadajhadati(1992) by Vishwas Patil on the travails of commoners displaced by modern civilization and dams in particular. This brings out how the Trojan Horse of the wicked profiteers and those bad in thought, word and deed infiltrates the framework of democracy to rob and loot the country. And modern civilization itself as time and again pointed out here is built on false foundations of a society of specialists and is destroying itself through man-made designs glaringly inadequate and suicidal in trying to meet human needs. What is truly galling is the persistence of those bad in thought, word and deed over the good.The trolls here are an excellent example of the persistence of evil in governance in the face truth.Note that without dams nukes cannot supply electricity stably, which in any case, they do to themselves only, always, with none available to the society outside the nuclear industry ever. Negative efficiency, infinite costs: The 400000 MW nukes require 200000 MW hydros for stability in meeting demands,thus appropriating 100000 sqkm land between themselves with power flow of 100 million MW to give 0.2 million MW.Insanity!
