This is to raise our deep concern over the recent arrest of a Dongria Kondh youth Dasru Kadraka of Gorota village, Rayagada district in Odisha. The youth belongs to the Niyamgiri Suraksha Samiti, that has been opposing bauxite mining in the Niyamgiri hills. 
The arrest comes in the wake of a series of reports of intimidation by para-military forces and local police in Niyamgiri  under alleged anti-moist operations. 
We request you to take immediate notice of this and secure the unconditional release of Dasru.

 We are saddened by the passing away of Pratibha Pande, one of the earliest members of Kalpavriksh, wildlife enthusiast, fantastic artist and map-maker, generous beyond words (so many of us have enjoyed her unhesitating hospitality), co-author with some of us of several wildlife-related books, and overall, a wonderful human being. Our deepest condolences to her family

A large group of civil society organizations including experts, energy practitioners, think tanks, peoples’ movements, academics, and entrepreneurs - came together as part of Bijli Vikalp Sangam in Bodh Gaya, between 4th to 6th March 2016. We reflected upon and explored sustainable equitable practices on energy, with a focus on electricity.  This was aimed at building a continuing critical dialogue with the state and other stakeholders in order to build a just and equitable energy future.
