The Murder Of Malana Village







  1. Malana to be made Plastic Free: Establish a process for plastic waste to be removed from the village and affect a ban on plastic in general in the village area going forward. Build awareness through signages and get local bodies to play a role. Collect a fee to visit the village and use those funds to support the ‘Keep Malana Clean’ movement.
  2. Restoration of Malana Village: The government should create a fund to restore some old wooden structures and establish norms for fresh construction to ensure that the historic nature of the village is maintained. Commercial activity in terms of homestay in the village should not be allowed.
