Mega Corporations Summit


One on the blind 'development' frenzy that India currently seems to be in, from my Sunday column with Mid-Day. The comic is also a tribute to my oldest uncle who was an eminent name in the mining world, having served both the Western and the Eastern Coalfields Limited (as the General Manager of the latter), and the Adani Group. Uncle was a proud advocate of both the coal mining industry as well as the ruling government's 'development' race. Ironically, he died recently of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, aggravated by a constant exposure to coal mines through the course of his illustrious mining career. I found his death quite metaphorical to what the ruling government is doing to India today.
