A photograph of a pre colonial document showing a financial transaction between a landowner and the royal state which established proof of ownership as well as duration of ownership and presence on the land, in Dhinkia, Odisha, the epicentre of the anti-POSCO struggle. A villager wanting to take it out of the region hid it inside a students file as he apprehended it being stolen by the local police or by a pro company mafia.
