so many comments, so little heart

the post below and the related one on olive ridley turtles have seen such a buzz of angry comments, it's not funny. it's dire actually. so many people wrote about 'obscure little animals in wetlands' and how it was time to ignore greenpeace and support the tatas. so much anger, so many anonymous comments (some which sounded suspiciously like they were from tech-and-blog-savvy staff at the port itself). this after the singur fiasco.
and hardly a comment or two from the other side. makes you realize that in these as in most other matters that seem to capture our country's imagination, the only people who stand up to be counted are the upper class, right wing, pro-destruction sorts.
sad really...
