Meet Ganesh, a rapicker. I met him when we went around Malleswaram with our Corporator. We were trying to create solutions for the road-side garbage dumping.

Ganesh was retrieving recyclables from a dump near the Malleswaram Market on 9th cross. He was a very pleasant person and showed us his booty. I just started realising that he is an Eco Hero who is doing what we should be doing….Reduce ..Reuse ..Recycle.
I see a big conflict there: that dump is his bread and butter while we were looking at eliminating it! Creating alternative options for these workers will be a win-win situation for the city.
