Waste disposal is a major issue not only for households and communities but also for temples. Hindu temples use a lot of flowers and other plant products like Tulsi, vilva leaves etc. for worship. In some temples, this can amount to a lot. Dumping them with other household waste can add to civic problems. It is, therefore, heartening to note that the management and devotees of Sree Ananthapadmanabha Swamy temple at Gandhinagar have set up a separate composting arrangement and monitoring the process. The compost is given to the Cancer Institute to grow organic vegetables for the patients.
A great initiative. Hope there will be more such.
