A public debate on the infamous 'Endosulfan tragedy of Kerala' was conducted during Swathanthralokam 2013- the annual meet of Kerala Freethinkers.This was for the first time that both sides of the issue was discussed in a public forum in Kerala. Dr. Mohammed Asheel, District Program Officer, NRHM, Kasargod District presented arguments for existence of Endosulfan related health issues , and Dr. K.M. Sreekumar, Associate professor of Entomology, Kerala Agricultural University presented reasons for skepticism in this regard.
hanks kftf for uploading this debate. However I wish that the first speaker was a better presenter like Dr.Viswanathan or Ravichandran C, who have a knack of introducing topics hitherto unfamiliar for a layman. But overall, a very educative video. Appreciate the great work done by kftf in organising and for making these debates accessible to a larger audience.
