Kodaikanal’s precious lake saved from unscientific development!


An exorbitant project to ‘develop’ the Kodaikanal lake was afoot, being undertaken through extremely opaque mechanisms, sans a committee of experts.  Ecological preservation and rejuvenation were completely missed considerations in the plan, and we decided to rally against this. 

Backed by the support of concerned citizens, we sent over 4,000 emails to the concerned municipality, urging them to reevaluate their approach. It was after sustained efforts and numerous meetings that lasted a year, we won and the development around the lake was halted until further impact assessment. Such victories catalysed by collective struggles reflect our commitment to safeguarding the ecosystem around us!
