India’s Coal Story : From Damodar to Zambezi - by Subhomoy Bhattacharjee (Paperback)
About this item
Believe it or not, India has one of the largest coal reserves in Asia, but still relies on imports from Australia and Mozambique...
India’s coal reserves were the lifeline that fuelled the British Empire in Asia, and yet today this industry is on the verge of collapse. Coal was at the centre of a major political scandal that nearly sent a prime minister to jail. This one-of-a-kind book unveils the murky politics around coal - the resource that could provide India all the energy security it needs.
