Solar Power, Magsaysay Awards, Harassment Strategy, Hell hath no Fury

If this is feasible in Kutch why can't this be replicated here?~~t?

Until now, the only thing shining in the Rann of Kutch was a mirage. Now, the scorching sun could light up another sparkling ring along the inhospitable border with Pakistan, if a Rs 61,019 crore dream comes true. And, it won't be an illusion, but real mirrors. With about 45 investment promises lined up in solar energy sector, Gujarat plans to promote the desert as a hub for renewable energy. However, the shadow that could fall on Gujarat's solar ambitions is that tapping energy from the Sun has so far proved technically complicated and economically unviable. Also, the scale of just one of the projects  the Clinton Foundation proposal to generate about 5,000 megawatt of power  is way larger than India's biggest power project of 3,260MW in Vindyachal. The biggest solar power plant planned so far is a 160MW project in Portugal. Solar mirrors to line border in Rann of Kutch
