Romila Thapar writes on the Ramar Sethu controversy.
Some detailed discussion is necessary as to what would be the economic benefits of such a scheme in enhancing communication and exchange. Such benefits should also be seen in terms of the future of local livelihoods in case they are negatively affected. Are there plans for the occupational relocation of local communities that may at the end be at a disadvantage? We have become a society so impressed with figures and graphs that we tend to forget that each number is actually a human being.
