Chinese demand had turned the mining town of Bellary into a boom town and many became overnight-millionaires in the past decade.  A massive probe into corruption and illegal mining led a court shut down all mining in 2011. Anil Lad is also a mining millionaire, and the court canceled his mining license last week because of environmental irregularities. But today, nobody is talking about corruption in the ongoing election campaign, and the mining millionaires are back in the fray.  (Photo by Rama Lakshmi/The Washington Post via Getty Images)
