… my experiences in India

What is this poster referring to?


Any ideas?

  1. Beauty comes with a price?
    Is it in the Old Mahabalipuram Road? May be it is a profound satirical remark on the IT corridor. The development of the IT corridor(Ranibow) leaves a lot of poor people homeless?

    Good pic Kate.

  2. Yep, you guessed it!

    Road building in England involves stripping through green and pleasant lands leaving the animals homeless. Road building in India involves stripping through communities and residents homes leaving the people homeless.

    Shame about the price of ‘progress’… displaced families and more noise and air pollution than you could shake a stick at.

  3. Interesting use of a highway construction sign.

    Progress will always displace nature. Your picture reminds me that the massive construction we see here in California is nothing compared to the destruction of nature occurring around the world. It will be interesting to see where this rampant disrespect for nature in the name of profit will go once we run out of fossil fuels… I’m guessing it will still occur, just on a smaller level.
