Pathrakadavu hydroelectric project

Another green battle ahead?

Pathrakadavu is a biodiversity-rich slice of the Nilgiri Hills in the Western Ghats, located in Palakkad district of Kerala, approximately 500 metres from the southern border of the Silent Valley National Park, one of the last undisturbed tracts of montane rain forests fringed with some tropical moist evergreen forests in India. And now it is in the news for not the happiest of reasons.
