As a part of the Madras Week, the Alliance Française of Madras, INTACH and PondyCAN is screening a Video documentary: ‘India’s Disappearing Beaches – A Wake Up Call’.
‘India’s Disappearing Beaches – A Wake Up Call’ is a non-profit film produced in the public interest by Shekar Dattatri for Pondy Citizens’ Action Network (PondyCAN). In just 15 minutes one can discover why India’s beaches are eroding at an alarming rate, and what needs to be done to stop this disaster from spreading further. The film explains how coastal erosion takes place, especially human induced erosion, and how it is possible to not only prevent man-made erosion but to restore lost beaches through the right measures. This will be followed by a panel discussion by eminent personalities, all connected to Chennai in their own ways.
