In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Sardar Sarovar Dam project in Western India became the focal point of a massive grassroots protest. People from all over the country converged to voice their opposition to environmental destruction and the forced relocation of Adivasi communities, all being done in the name of irresponsible and poorly planned development.

Orijit Sen’s account of the Narmada Bachao Andolan is drawn from his personal experiences from 1991-1993. Weaving together the history of the resistance movement with stories of local people and tribal folklore, River of Stories is an inspiring document of environmental activism, as well as an important milestone of Indian comics history.
