The Singur story
I have been writing about Singur, where the West Bengal govt is forcibly acquiring land from farmers to hand over to Tata Motors for their small car project.
My friend Sumit Chowdhury, who is a film-maker, writer and activist, has written a detailed article on the Singur land acquisition. That is available here.
