Smelling bauxite in our mountains
Monstrous roads are approaching to our villages
People crossing the road shiver with fear.
Masters of “DEMOCRACY” come on these roads
Waving flag of “DEVELOPMENT”
To connect our “BACKWARD” people to “MAINSTREAM”.
On the same roads
Every day we see trucks full of armed forces
Coming to our villages
To save us from “MAOIST, NAXALITES, EXTREMISTS….”
By raping us, torturing us, killing us.
For “SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT” of country
It has been decided by “EMPIRE”
To blow off our mountains
To uproot our villages
We are advised to support “DEVELOPMENT” at any cost
We are asked to provide a good “INVESTMENT ENVIRONMENT”
We have to leave our beloved forests, our villages, our land…
Do you know why we are anti- “DEVELOPMENT”?
