Payel Baag, the Child
celebrity of Bengal
She is only 3 and half yrs old.
Was jailed and booked under
Arms Act by Sri. Buddhadeb
Bhattacharya's police when
she was only 2 and half yrs old
because they thought her to be
too dangerous for the State!
She has already mastered the
art of shouting slogans along
with the elders !

SINGUR, 30 Sept 2007: Boundary wall & Tata project site acquired land, as seen from Durgapur Expressway, situated East of
the site. Security guards can be seen on the foreground. The flooded sight of the Tata project site will give the impression that
this land gets inundated during every rainy season proving the low yielding nature of the land ! The truth, as claimed by the
Singur villagers, is that the lock gates of the irrigation canals, which fell with in the site area, were intentionally rendered
ineffective causing this flooding, by the project management. This flooding is not a normal affair ! A lot of construction work in
progress can also be seen.

Bengal Govt. of Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, had to refrain from celebrating this festival for the past two years. Singur, 16 Oct 2007. All Photos were taken by
