Should you, like, drown...

BG Verghese, arguing for work on the Narmada Dam to continue, comes up with this remarkable line:
Special provision can be made, including a compensation package for those — if any — eligible for R&R but inadequately provided for, or not at all, should they suffer submergence.
So if your property has been stolen by the state for the "greater good," and if you have subsequently suffered submergence, kindly contact the relevant ministry and they will give you a form to fill in triplicate. What's that? You want to breathe? How insensitive!
