Meghalaya village stays Asia's cleanest 20.11.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
For artists making nature a theme for their art, this tiny village of 500 souls nestled amongst lush green forests in a remote corner in south of Meghalaya, along the Indo-Bangladesh border, is a perfect destination. Situated in the East Khasi Hill district, the village is famous for its cleanliness and of late has become an attraction point for central and various state government officials to learn tricks to make Prime Minister Narenda Modi's 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' (Clean India Mission) successful. Functional toilets in every household, no stray animals on the streets, paved pathways, solar-lit streets and bamboo dustbins at every corner, the village, nick-named as God's Own Garden, is consistently working to retain its prestigious tag of the cleanest village of Asia; conferred on it in 2003. No traces of fallen and dry leaves can be seen as they go straight into a dustbin. Not only are plastic bags banned, but smoking is also prohibited in this village. The rules are strictly followed and the ...

On the occasion of Children’s Day, chief minister Vasundhara Raje has launched a unique scheme on water conservation in rural areas for the future generation. Under the initiative, sewerage treatment plants (STPs) will be set up to treat sewage water for agriculture purpose in the panchayats which are badly hit with water scarcity. “The treatment plants will be set up in clusters at panchayat level.

CDs don't go in dry waste bin 14.11.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Heera bai works as a domestic help in one of Mumbai's apartment complexes. She, like the family she works for, would earlier throw all the garbage in a common bin. Since last month, when the city's municipal body asked for waste to be segregated in different containers as per wet and dry waste, the society has provided blue-coloured garbage bins. Green, she is told, is for wet waste and blue for dry. Following the logic, she throws all the waste paper from the craft work little Shael and his friend Riyaaz had done into the blue bin. But Shael's elder sister, Shaila stops her, saying, "Woh hare dabbe mein jayega (That will go in the green bin).” Heera is visibly confused. “Lekin woh gila nahin hai (But that's not dry)!” The confusion didn't end there. Their father Rajeev decided he must clean up the music cabinet. He transfers all the songs from the CDs onto a hard drive. Once he's done, he dumps all the CDs into the blue bin for dry waste. The following morning the society's housekeeping staff told ...
