Abstract This paper analyzes, based on a household survey, the reaction of local people to the proposed ash-pond at Sukinda Pata, a village near the planned steel-hub of Odisha, proposed by the Jindal Stainless Steel, and the social, economic, and environmental impact of the ash-pond. In fact, one of the things that the world needs to explore is – in the words of Orissa’s best socio-economic analyst, Birendra Nayak - the effect of activities in the “invisible commons” like mines and ash-ponds on the “visible commons” like rivers and land.
