Each state differs so widely in economic and social development that it is difficult to speak of the country as a whole. Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai are three of the world's ten most polluted cities.
Policy-makers used to think that development would be the best contraceptive, with little attention given to planning a widespread population policy - except in the late s when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi suspended the constitution, and people were forcibly sterilized.

Dzongu, on the banks of the Teesta, overlooks the sacred Khangchendzonga the worlds third highest mountain and is home to red pandas, snow leopards, and the famous Khangchendzonga National Park.
The Lepcha are waiting in apprehension for the harbingers of development the giant bulldozers, the heavy cranes, the polluting crushers.
The film asks whether the dams being built in the name of development will destroy the Lepchas culture, identity and socio-economic fabric.
