It's only legal for the Lepchas to keep control of their land. India needs to make other arrangements, preferably more sustainable, for irrigation and power production. Signed and noted, thanks Nancy!

Signed - thanks for this Nancy - dams in an area prone to earthquakes seems just the teeniest weeniest bit a place where NONE of us would like to live downstream! And as for the environmental damage - words fail me - haven't they learned yet? Are their decision makers still stuck in the 1970s when we knew so much less than we do now? Hooray for the Lepchas!

(Tried to give you a green star for this but the computer wouldn't let me yet - sorry!).
