FacebookStumbleUponGoogle+TwitterEmail

Katwarulal (village Amelia, MP) is demanding justice against the village patwari (government official who keeps records of land-ownerships and tilling for a sub-division ) Dhiresh Tripathi’s atrocities. He asked for the permit map of his land from the patwari.  An already drunk patwari (5/7/13, near Gadakhad market, Srilal’s house) abused and told Katwarulal to get 4 beer bottles. When declined, the patwari threatened that he would not fulfill Katwarulal’s request of land permit map.

Three locals from Amelia village (Bholeram, Lalcharan and Sudama doctor) took Ramadhar Saket’s signature on a paper in the name of enlisting him as BPL (Below Poverty Line) and 5 dhimsil land from the Patwari (as per the order by CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan). More than thirty signatures have been taken by fooling people this way. Ramadhar says that his signature will not be valid if it’s used for forgery by the Company or others (Post Karsualal, Tehsil Mada, District Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh).

Living and Loving Mahan Forest

FacebookStumbleUponGoogle+TwitterEmail

For Jaybhan Singh Khairwar (village Jamghadi) the Mahan forest holds a very important place in his life. The forest provides multitudes of supports –like dry wood used in construction of houses and mahua for oil and many other edible purposes. The invaluable knowledge about medicinal herbs has been passed on for generations, to the next. The people here work hard, live happy lives, love living with the forest. Jaybhan concludes that people will never comply with the demands of any mining company asking them to leave their forest (Post Jamghadi, district Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh).
