    Good job bringing this to light. People won't realise how huge the problem is and municipalities are woefully ill equipped to deal with the issue. How many municipalities have incinerators for instance?

  • Dear Soma Basu... kudos for

    Dear Soma Basu... kudos for your article, bringing out a really problematic issue. I had earlier interacted with some of the activists in Pune about this issue. I had suggested some incinerator for the same. In addition, I have kicked up a worldwide discussion forum on LinkedIn, where I am getting opinions from experts from all over world. If you are LinkedIn member, you can access it or I can share the same with you. I am convinced special organized efforts are needed for conclusively solving this issue. Please share your contact details, whereby we can exchange information. Warm regards, Dr. Modak

  • Instead of napkins and

    Instead of napkins and tampons, there is a very handy solution which sadly gets no publicity, the menstrual cup. It is a reusable silicon cup that a woman inserts within and reuses after a simple rinse. A cup can be reused safely for about ten years! Nothing goes into the dustbin. It is a very eco-friendly solution.
