Out of more than 900 posts in Kolkata Musing, the one most commented on is about the environment crusader, Subhas Dutta.
People have left their postal address, email address, and even cell numbers in the comments. It sort of surprises me that people would be so naive as to leave their personal details here for all to see.
Thinking about it a little differently I believe that the comment-makers feel so near to the environment causes that the last thing they need to bother is sharing their personal details. If you read the comments you’ll see I’m not off the mark.
Subhas Dutta is a real crusader. By fighting incessantly to stop the abuse of environment he is exposing the powerful lobby of vested interests including those engaged in political doublespeak.
Not surprising then that Subhas Dutta will take initiative to float a political outfit, but with a difference.
As the Times of India reports:
Environment crusader Subhas Datta is set to launch India’s first green party on the lines of political formations in Germany, the United Kingdom, the US and Australia that have environment protection, sustainable growth and inclusive development at their core.
Dutta has definite plans for the future. “Our party will be launched next year and we will fight the 2011 Assembly elections in West Bengal,” he confirms in the report.
I’m sure many like me will wish him and his effort a resounding success in the days to come.
