Speak up: Capital city dotted with garbage needs to start waste segregation soon 29.5.2017 DNA: India
Heaps of garbage piled up on the side of the road and fires from landfills polluting the air are now practically a permanent feature of the national capital, posing grave health risks to residents. As the  waste management policy is not strictly followed, both the environment and the public are at risk. The Delhi government and the BJP-run municipal corporations have so far failed miserably at making Delhi a garbage-free city. Environmental and waste management experts say the only solution is segregation of waste so that it can be recycled and/or processed. Delhi generates over 9,600 metric tonnes of waste every day. As the city ran out of space for landfill sites, the corporations was expected to come up with modern means of doing away with the waste. The BJP – which recently won a third term in the North, South and East corporations – has ruled the MCD for over a decade. The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC), with a large number of unauthorised colonies, has the largest problem of garbage being ...

A lake catching fire is an epochal event. Bellandur made news in the BBC, CNN, France News, TokyoTV,The Guardian etc around the world. The last time a lake burned was in 1969 when Cuyahoga river joining Erie Lake near Cleveland, USA started burning from dumping of sewage and industrial pollutants. This compelled the Nixon administration to create the Environment Protection Agency in 1970 and Clean Water Act in 1972. Afterwards, no lake is burning in the US. In Karnataka, the BWSSB was established in 1964 and the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act and the Pollution Control Board came into existence in 1974. It speaks volumes of law-implementation the last 40 years when lakes of Bengaluru — the Land of a Thousand Tanks — have started supplying fire instead of water. Human excreta is a taboo subject and is coyly termed "night soil" because traditionally, it was manually collected in pots mixed with soil especially from rich people's homes, usually in the night.
