Nagarjuna Sagar

Couple of days back (Dec 10th?) it was the golden jubliee of Nagarjuna Sagar. I had been to this Dam two times. But never did it occur to me that such a massive construction would take how much labour/time/money.
There was an article in the newspaper which tells us how much of a feat was it to construct the Dam 50 years ago. It seems for 15 years at any point of time (day or night) there were 50,000 labourers working on the Dam. And it seems, it had costed around 9 crores at that time.
