A farmer collects betel leaves near POSCO India
A farmer collects betel leaves near POSCO India's Odisha Project site at Gobindpur village in Jagatsinghpur district, in the eastern Indian state of Odisha, February 7, 2013. A few weather-beaten shipping containers, a swathe of sand and a bitterly divided village: that is all South Korea's POSCO has to show seven years after it announced plans for a $12 billion steel mill on a fertile strip of India's east coast. Despite the years of protests and battles over environmental clearances, Posco insists it is not about to throw in the towel. However, if a court ruling on access to local iron ore goes against it, that could push it over the edge. Picture taken February 7, 2013. REUTERS/Stringer
