Dhurve, 70, from the adivasi (tribal) Gond community lives in Singhari village. Dhurve was relocated from his home to make way for the 668 hectare bauxite Bodhi Daldali mine, run by Balco & Vedanta (Vedanta is a UK headquartered company). He feels that Balco has turned their lives topsy turvey. "The sweetness you had in the water and the grains in the forest cannot be replicated in the plains."
