Whither shall we dump? Is the Problem. Kochi's dilemma and headache is its waste. The temporary dumping ground right in the middle of the city at Padiyathukulam created a hue and cry from the residents and students who took to the road. Of course they do everything to disinfect with an anti microbial deodorant! (see picture)
It ceases to be funny- this high mountain of waste has to be now moved to another spot.
For the next two days the waste will occupy the city's prime land- Marine Drive.
Why cant the Mayor ban plastics and ask the numerous high-rise buildings to manage their own wastes?
Trucks laden with city waste wait for the administration and the courts to decide where to dump the goods. Ah Marine Drive finally!
The statue seems to grimace at the sight.
