Saving Thano Forest from an Airport Expansion Proposal

Episode #21 is about the Thano forest in in the Doon valley Uttarakhand- the state where I live. Thano has been in the news lately because the Uttarakhand government has sought the National Wildlife Board’s approval to transfer 243 acres of forest land to the Airports Authority of India. They want to expand the local existing Jolly Grant airport into an international airport. Listen to the facts from my 3 guests who are all prominent Doon citizens. Lokesh Ohri: Anthropologist, historian, writer and a cultural activist & founder of Been There Doon That. Abhijay Negi, is a young activist-lawyer, founder of MAD which stand for Making a difference. Both are active drivers of the #savethano movement. I am also speaking with Sanjay Sondhi, a well known naturalist, founder of Titli Trust and a community development and livelihoods expert.
