This year the Narmada Bachao Andolan (Save the Narmada Movement) completed 25 years. Though begun as a campaign against dams on the River Narmada, the NBA has evolved into a national campaign with an incisive critique on the so called ‘development’ model currently being pursued in India. For over two decades, the NBA has been a shining light for activists and campaigns for environment justice across the world.
Friends of the NBA rallied to the valley for a series of events that began with a meeting in Dhadgaon (Maharastra) on 22 October. The celebrations closed with a massive rally and convention in Badwani (Madhya Pradesh). Here is photo essay that offers us vignettes from the 25th NBA anniversary celebrations.
