Our family took a trip to a landfill this past weekend – as part of a local Los Angeles area Earth Day celebration. We toured the Puente Hills Landfill – which, if you’ve ever driven by along Route 60, you wouldn’t even know it’s a landfill: it’s smoothed over with layers of dirt, has scraggly grass and shrubs growing on top, and just looks like a typically mountain.

Which got me thinking about landfills in India – which the post was supposed to be about. But the situation and pictures are so utterly depressing, that I did not want to post. It is devastating to think that our mother country is looking more and more like a scene from Wall-E – and no one seems to have any workable solutions.

And so, to make myself fell (sort of) better, today we tour 15 of the largest landfills in the world – 14 of which are NOT in India.

Although all of these landfills look infinitely nicer and are more well maintained than the “dumps” in India.

Every day is Earth Day.

Languages are beautiful….Love Your Language
