1/ The SC may have given it a green light, but #AadhaarFail TERROR continues unabated in #Jharkhand.

Exclusion, disruption, and disempowerment is what Aadhaar has brought to the lives of the Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups. Case studies from a recently concluded survey.
2/ A census of all PVTG households was conducted in 2 blocks, Manika & Satbarwa, in Palamu district. Despite a small sample, we encountered a plethora of #AadhaarFail issues.

If you still think Aadhaar is "fixing-up" welfare, please follow. Select survey findings appended.
3/ Sukni Devi could not enrol for an #AadhaarFail as she is blind.

About a year ago, she stopped receiving her pensions.

Though I am really glad that #arsenic contamination of #groundwater in India, and specially #WestBengal is getting the attention it deserves, there is a major issue that needs wider discussion.
There is a simplistic argument that arsenic naturally occurs in the #Gangetic belt, the author uses the term “#geological curse”. If this is the case, why is heavy #arsenic contamination being reported from #Jharkhand and #Chattisgarh in Central India?
A possible answer to that may be traced to this MIT paper that was published in @NatureGeosci on #anthropogenic influence on #groundwater #arsenic contamination in #Bangladesh nature.com/articles/ngeo6…

After getting a good rap on the knuckles by editors for being a lazy lurker on social media, here's course correction. I am now doing a thread of all my reportage in 2018. (@sree and @prempanicker had encouraged me to do this many years ago 🙈) Please read and share.
While urbanisation is a global trend, villagers around #Ahmedabad don't want to live in cities. Since 2012, #Gujarat government has encouraged 12 cities to swallow up some 800 villages. And now, most of them are resisting. A take on the 'Gujarat Model'.
