decade has boosted the incomes and living standards of millions mostly city-dwellers But the environmental impact has often been ignored and the rural poor largely left behind The 400 million Indians who live on less than Rs 75 a day are dubious about their economic prospects particularly those who have lost their land or been forced to live with poisoned groundwater dirty air and fetid rivers

2010 he won his first court victory in blocking Indian company Scania Steel & Power Ltd from expanding a coal-burning power plant without clearance He’s been helped by some legal tools along the way In 2005 India passed a law giving citizens the right to review public records Six years later India launched a separate environmental court system that gave any citizen the right to demand a hearing
