One of the oldest continually inhabited cities, Delhi today is facing the dual pressure of development as well as an ever increasing population.
In the climate constrained world of today, 'development' itself is seen as a threat to the environment and it is indeed 'development' which attracts the workforce and contributes to the increasing urban population. However, development--in the real sense of
the word--is essential for the growth and prosperity of a region and of a nation as a whole. Development should be sustainable and should not discount the needs and requirements of the future generation.
With this as the backdrop, Delhi Greens and a series of organizations is calling for the second Delhi Youth Summit on Climate (DYSoC '10) at the Teen Murti House on 5-6 June 2010. DYSoC 2010 will bring together the youth from across the capital city and attempt
to understand the various urban environmental issues in the wake of climate change.
This World Environment Day, come forward and be a part of the change!

This documentary is a portrait of a painful transformation. The land of the Tana Bhagats, a peaceful sect of the Oraon tribe who follow a Gandhian lifestyle and philosophy, is today besieged by Naxalite violence. In tracing the impact of the underground Maoist
