    I read your hub, Aarey, and checked out "Save Aarey" on Twitter.  I truly hope that the efforts of the people to save the green lush land that is left will be a victory.  I also grew up surrounded by forests, and returned to my roots a few years ago. I love it.  It cannot imagine having to defend the lush forests and big timbers surrounding me.  I'm very sad that you and your community are having to do so. 

    I saw some recent news article headlines about a 'helicopter crash' there.  Is that somehow related?

      I am grateful to you for taking some time and searching for the cause against which we are fighting. Yes, your search was accurate, the helicopter crash occured today around noon near 'Royal Palms'  a real estate whose highest point and widest distance is a testimony to the amount of corruption on which it was built.

      I sincerely hope we are able to prevent the construction of metro shed in aarey. Just to make you familiar with the issue the land comes under protected land by law but government wants to flatten nearly 100 acres of protected land for the project. When the people protested it formed a committee to determine the status of the land on which the project is to be constructed, in its report the committee stated that there are no protected species on the particular patch of land, when from that very patch two new species of spiders are discovered, we have given them the evidence that the patch of land is a habitat of an endangered reptile, Indian Rock Python(protected), also the territory of leopards(protected). Yet, the gov't is taking steps to destroy the land.

        Fighting government land grabs are nightmares here as well.  They don't always make mainstream news, and when they do patriotic citizens protesting can be made out to be terrorists or somehow violent when they are not. We've had some shot and others imprisoned only to be found not guilty of all charges later. 

        I can empathize with you, and hope that your protected land will remain protected from the powerful corrupt.  They can make it difficult to enjoy each day as if it were your last, but do it anyway.  Life is short.   

        Would be lovely to preserve the forest for the creatures, and for the next generations.
