We have better things to worry about than some damned beach.  I still  
think we would all be better off if Adyar were plowed under.  It has long  
outlived its usefulness.

Dear Friends,

I just learnt about a new and serious problem Adyar is  confronting. Here 
the fulll details.


The Tamil Nadu  State Government is planning to build a 47 km elevated
express way which  will include parts of the Chennai coastline. The first
studies show that  around 14 fishing communities (*kuppams*) and over 560
families will be  affected by the project. The proposed route includes the
Adyar beach near  the Theosophical Society's compound. The entire unique
ecosystem in that  area will be severely disturbed.

The Adyar beach is one of the last  undisturbed beaches in Chennai. Many
residents from Chennai go there every  day, through the TS compound, to 
the beach and the vastness of sea  and sky. The beach is also a landmark in
contemporary India as it was the  place where renowned philosopher J.
Krishnamurti was discovered a hundred  years ago.

T_he Save Chennai Beaches movement has organized a petition  addressed to
the Environment Minister of the Central Governement in New  Delhi, asking 
the project to be abandoned. The link to the petition  webpage is given

As we are all  interested in Adyar, I would like to ask you all to consider
signing the  petition and support this important initiative to save the 
beach from  unwanted development.
