I believe in legend...

Anitha Santhi is an Ecological Scientist originally from Kerela. She is the main force behind Tamil fishermen and villagers opposing the construction of nuclear power project in  Tamil Nadu. Her book titled NO, which can be seen in her hands not only moved millions to oppose the project but also created  tides of supporters among natives and non-natives, Indians and non-Indians, writers and readers, etc.

Such is the force of dedication, selflessness  and expertise. I have all the respect for this unsung legendary lady.

I love Anitha!

Oh yes, I have heard of her struggle. I even saw TV footage of the people in India protesting against the nuclear power plant. I think she is doing very good job. If she is reading this comment, I have millions prayers and wishes for SANTHI. Great job!!!!!!

Its long and sharp beak becomes bent. Its old, aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly.

The process requires that the eagle fly to a mountaintop and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out. Then the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back. Then it will pluck out its talons The talons are what an eagle uses to catch food. To pluck them out would not only be extremely difficult and painful, but would also take away their ability to provide food for themselves. When it's new
