What will happen if Mullaperiyar Dam breaks?
Here we have seven facts that’s possible if Mullaperiyar Dam breaks.
We kindly request you to read them, understand and share it with you fellow friends!
1. Under water sea cable for internet connectivity that connects India to the rest of the world is only in Cochin. If Cochin Goes Down, South Indian IT Hub will come to a stand still. All the gateway CISCO routers, switches etc in Kakkanad will float into the Arabian Ocean. IP packets from Bangalore, Chennai etc will not cross the ocean.
2. Cochin Refineries, which refines the petroleum products and services most of South India will be washed away. Then Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra will have to rely on more expensive options for Petroleum Refineries.
3. Kerala will be in complete darkness for ages; No TV, No Internet, No Mobile towers once the Idukki hydro electric power plant is washed away.
4. Kerala will be divided into 2 lands, impacting the geography of India and washing away an area of vast bio diversity, along with 3 million inhabitants. Serving rest of the people with food and other stuffs will be an extremely tedious task.
5. Port City of Cochin will not be in world map anymore. Vallarpadam port will be a history; whole of South India has to again depend on Colombo for Mother ships, a very expensive option.
6. Tamil Nadu will not get water for irrigation or drinking anymore, as stored water in Mullaperiyar dam will flow to the ocean when the dam collapses.
7. Along its course, the water current will wash out Idukki Dam and many many Industries, Factories, IT Parks, Hospitals, Ports, Cochin City, Temples, Mosques, Churches etc to the Arabian Ocean.
A disaster 180 times terrific than Hiroshima. This is not exaggeration. Spread this information.
Kerala as well as Tamil Nadu are stakeholders in this issue. More than Kerala, its local Tamil people (excluding power-hungry politicians) who need such info. We need our brothers and sisters across the border to pressurize their own politicians to consider this as a humanitarian crisis, rather than an inter-state dispute.
