The Die is Caste

1 January, 1999
Bangalore

'The Die is Caste' is an appraisal of three decades of the Naxalite (extreme left) movement in the state of Bihar, in eastern India. It examines the role of Naxalites (i.e. Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) Liberation, People’s War Group and Maoist Communist Centre) as agents of socio-political change, employing violence.

Nagara Nyrmalya

Background

1 January, 1970

In collaboration with the Human Health and Well Being Division of United Nations Environment Programme, ESG initiated a pilot project aimed at developing the capacities of Pourakarmikas (municipal solid waste workers) of one Health Ward of the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike in evolving a sustainable strategy for management of community level municipal solid waste.

Solid Waste Management Training Initiative

Background

1 January, 1970

With over 5 million people producing over 2,500 tonnes of Solid Waste (SW) daily, it is a very sad statement to make of India’s “Silicon Valley”, Bangalore, that there is no sustainable and coordinated system of primary collection of waste, either from doorsteps or community dustbins. The situation is even more depressing if we consider the fact that disposal of the SW daily is a matter left more to chance than being part of a planned and scientific management effort. The cumulative impact of decades of such neglect on Bangalore’s local environment has thus been very serious.

Fly Ash Over India

Background

ESG extended research support in the making of the environmental video documentary "Fly Ash Over India", by Siobhan Wall, formerly with London Guildhall University. This documentary assesses the environmental impacts of locating thermal power plants in the ecologically sensitive Dakshina Kannada district, and specifically addresses the manner in which Cogentrix has violated local social and environmental concerns.
