Narmada: 30 Years of Resilience – a Calendar (April 2015-March 2016)
Narmada Bachao Andolan (Save the Narmada Movement) has completed 30 years of its history and innumerable struggles. The Delhi Solidarity Group is celebrating this great event it by bringing out a calendar.
Thirty long years of NBA’s arduous struggles against the construction of mega-dams on the River Narmada for social and environmental justice, today stands out as one of the most important symbol of peoples’ struggles in India. Non-violence and civil disobedience embodied in the Narmada Bachao Andolan is a collective history of innumerable rallies, hundreds of hunger strikes, sit-in protests, dharnas, gheraos, public meetings, folk songs, street plays and dances which have all formed part of the struggle that asserted the right of the people to their land, water and forests and set a precedent for a large number of other social movements in India. This mammoth collective history needs to be recorded in a visual form and disseminated to the people who are concerned about unjust development practices.
The Narmada calendar would feature the trajectories and the contours of the movement around the Sardar Sarovar Project (SSP) with hundreds of protests, hunger strikes, rallies, dharnas, police atrocities, court interventions, landmark judgments and protests against the involvement World Bank. The calendar would also feature photographs, banners, slogans etc., to bring alive some of the remarkable events in its history. This calendar is not just any other calendar, but a chronicle of thirty years of peoples’ struggle in the Narmada Valley.
We would like to invite you to be part of this great movement and participate in spreading the message of non-violent struggles for a just and equitable society.
The Calendar is priced at Rs. 300/- per copy. Dimensions: 15” X 20”
The proceeds from the sale of the calendar would go to Narmada Bachao Andolan.
