For those who still think "Mullaperiyar" issue is a regional one, For those who wont see anything even it is visible, For those who doesnt have any sentiments even for themselves, For
those, who are not meant to be a human... ... What will happen to Kerala and South India if Mullaperiyar Dam breaks?
1) Under water sea cable for Internet connectivity connects India to rest of the world , thats only in Cochin. If Cochin Goes
Down, South Indian IT Hub will come to a stand still. All the gateway CISCO routers, switches etc in Kakkanad will float in
Arabian Ocean. IP packets from Bangalore, chennai etc will not cross the ocea...n.......
2) Cochin Refineries - Which refines petroleum products and services most of South India. If it is washed away, TamilNadu, Karnataka and Andhra has to find much more expensive options for Petroleum Refineries.
3) Kerala will be in complete darkness for ages, no TV, no Internet, no Mobile towers, once the Idukki hydro electric power plant is washed away, resulting from Mullaperiyar collapse.
4) Kerala... will be divided into 2 lands, impacting geography of India, and washing away an area of vast bio diversity, along
with 30 lakh people. Serving rest of the people with food and other stuffs will be an extremely tedious task.
5) Our prestigious Nedumbassery International Air port will be washed away. Port City of Cochin, will not be in world map anymore. Vallarpadam port will be a history, all of South India has to again depend on Colombo for mother ships, a very expensive option.
6) Tamil Nadu will not get water for irrigation or drinking anymore, as stored water in Mullaperiyar dam will flow to the
ocean, when the dam collapses.
7) Along its course, the water current will wash Idukki Dam, and many many Industries , Factories, IT Parks, Hospitals,
Ports, Cochin City, temples, mosques, churches etc etc to the Arabian Ocean.
8) A disaster 180 times terrific than Hiroshima. This is not exaggeration. Spread this, friends. Information is power. Kerala as well as Tamil Nadu are stakeholders in this issue.
More than us, its normal Tamil people (excluding power-hungry politicians) who need such info. We need our brothers and sisters across the border to pressurize their own politicians to consider this as a humanitarian crisis, rather than an inter-
