Satyagraha in 1999 With the monsoon rains underway in India, many areas of the Narmada valley are under the threat of submergence due to the Sardar Sarovar dam. Once again, the Narmada Bachao Andolan has embarked on a non-violent struggle to assert the rights of the people. This collective assertion is in the form of a satyagraha. Since July 15, activists and their supporters from all over India and different parts of the world are living in the villages of Domkhedi (Maharashtra) and Jalsindhi (Madhya Pradesh), determined not to leave their houses when the waters rise but to stay and assert their rights by facing the waters.
