Screening of Mahua Memoirs

 Later there was a realisation that the issue of impact of mining on the rural environment is very much, part of the larger debate on environment sustainability (climate change debate).

Vinod Raja’s Mahua Memoirs , a documentary film featuring Saloo, the bard and Thirku Baiga takes us on a journey through the lives of the Adivasi’s, living in the mountain tracts of the Eastern Ghats across Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, Chattisgarh and Jharkhand. The regions being rich in natural resources including minerals; the same resources have become the source of their greatest insecurities consuming their lands and their lives.
