A village crippled by fluorosis

Government offers Rs 25,000 each to 109 BPL families to relocate; villagers turn down the offer

by Ashutosh Mishra, Khurda

Pabani Pradhan, 42, looks 60. She can’t walk on her own. Joginath Pradhan, 60, Pabani’s neighbour, uses crutches. Sukant, 24, the sole breadwinner of a family of six, cannot move out of the village to fit tiles in people’s houses any more because his body has become stiff. Fluorosis has crippled them, and other residents of Balsingh-Singpur in Khurda district of Orissa.
