Deccan rockscape

The two and a half billion years old, majestic, irreplaceable Deccan rocks are so easily destroyed, wrecking the heritage Deccan landscape, so that a few people with money can make more money. On a par with the destruction of the South American rainforests using chainsaws, the rocks are now being mined with heavy machinery that cuts out cubes of 20 feet diameter in one go. One can just stand by and watch in anguish.

Kudos to Frauke Quader for her role as the leading light of the Save the Rocks Society. Pictures by Pradip Krishen.
