ANSWER (a) - I would tell her that she is a human first and then an employee. I will tell her about the devastating effect of contaminated water on the people who use it and how this water can endangered the life of many. I will assure her that if she has ability and confidence then she can get another job but to remain silent to such a inhuman activity is not morally right. I will motivate her to take honest approach and since people have been living on this contaminated water for so many years without even knowing the matter she is the only hope to do justice to them. It will also set an example for the masses to take action against such anti-human activities. At the same time I will say to her to look from the point of view of our environment which is degrading due to such toxic materials and how your right action can aware the people to protect this environment. At last I will tell her that however you might lose your job but you should not let humanity to be lost.
ANSWER (b) - In order to take action against the administration I would advice her to act very safely and cautiously.
I will tell her first to forward a written complain about toxic material being dumped into river to the highest authority of the company. And before doing this I would suggest her to take her colleagues into confidence to form a unity against the administration as however they can fire single employee but it will not be feasible to fire a unit.
If it would not bulge anything, the second course of action that she can take is to go to the people who are affected by contaminated water and aware them about the harmful effect of contamination on their health and environment. By this she can start a mass movement and then file a Public Interest Litigation for the affected people against the company. It is also advisable to spread this fight for safe health and environment through print and mass media and this can give boost to their initiative against the anti-environment activities of the factories.
