The Peak of a Mountain
In eastern India, locals from Mahatma village stole the peak of a nearby mountain called Humta Pahad. The story is a little more complicated than that however, as the unusually flat mountain peak has been chipped away by locals who then sell it to property developers so that they can feed their families. Villagers work eleven hours a day cutting at the rock. One third of the mountain has already disappeared, but with no other industries in sight, the villagers don t seem to be slowing down. The government refuses to intervene, falsely claiming that the village falls under MCC (Maoist Communist Centre) territory, to cover up their ineptitude to provide these locals with other work. The cost of the damage and how much the locals have made off the mountain cannot be estimated.
