Idol Race

Spending millions on dead monuments will certainly help India shine. It seems like there is a race between the two fronts to construct the tallest/highest statue. And not to mention that these days every great monument must be at least twice the size of statue of liberty  One monument is the statue of a great Maratha warrior whose legacy was successfully exploited by the right wing extremists to sow the seed of fascism in this republic while other is of the Iron man and leaders of peasant whose legacy is a matter of debate between a party and a state. But irony of the situation is that the statue of this leader of peasant will stand in the waters of Sardar Sarovar Dam. The same dam which rendered 5K farmers families homeless and irrigates less water than it submerged.
