Follow the Rainbow

Synopsis
Damming the Subarnarekha River in India’s South Bihar region will have catastrophic results for the native Ho Indians. The World Band-financed dams will submerge their lands and temples. The campaign of resistance by the Ho Indians has so far led to temporary suspension of World Bank payments for the project.
