The battle of Kodaikanal against the reckless dumping of mercury by the Hindustan Unilever has reached crescendo with the popular rap, “Kodaikanal Won't” going viral that was made by a Chennai based artist Sofia Ashraf. The rap is based on Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda', who also chipped in with praising the initiative.
The online activism initiated by an NGO has gained umpteen supports from the viewers, including common people and celebs like Vishal Dadlani, Nandita Das and Varun Grover.
Hindustan Unilever, however, accepts that the mercury containing glass waste approximated to be 5.3 tonnes at the Munjikal scrapyard originated from its thermometer factory.
According to reports, the adverse effects of the mercuric waste have sabotaged the flora and fauna of the city killing people by measures. The factory workers have walked down the court demanding a fair compensation against the organized ill meted out to them.
