Above is a photograph of a mud colored mountain shot from a distance…
Mountains are magnificent. Think of the Mighty Himalayas, home of the highest peaks in the world.
Now look again closely at our mountain above. Let me bring to your eyes, another photograph of our mud colored mountain.
This is a mountain but unlike what we want to see. This is a mountain of a pile of garbage and this site is located in Delhi. And this is a common site you will find almost in all metropolitan cities.
We humans need food to survive. We eat, our body assimilates what it needs from the food and the rest our body excretes out. So, basically this is human waste.
Likewise, there are many other wastes that are not generated by the human body. Yet the wastes are generated by humans. Yes, where there are humans living there will be waste but then there are also mechanisms in place to tackle this. During my visit to Paris I saw a cylindrical box coming out of a road, I walked close to box see what it was. I realized that it is waste box containing used beer bottles. Wow…What an ingenious idea. And on top of that this box was cleaned regularly and all the bottles/glass re-processed.
If, we humans want we can’t work wonders and we should work wonders for development considering the fact that environment degradation is not an option for our wonders.
