20 Aug TOI carried a news today about pyrolysis way of reducing the plastic invasion in Kerala. Good indeed. This is a known tech practiced by the wise communities or communities who believe in mod techs. Truly way back in the ek nayanar days when sivankutty sat as mayor of TVm , and the vilappila sala plant was conceived, one technologist strongly argued for pyrolysis as a long term solution for waste disposal in the state, including TVm. Unfortunately that lone voice was cowed down by the majority who believed in pedestrian science had it going for vilappilsala. It is the icon of future of waste management in a state like Kerala, which has the monsoon climate and rain fall. Now the pyrolysis talk is gladdening. All the pipe, cage composting or vermi composting are excellent topics for a evening discussion over vada and chai. For problems of waste management, modern tech are needed. Others are just fillers. Our public is unconcerned about what our facilitators do. The public got a wonderful time in front to enjoy every bit. The heavens have comedown to our front yard as cheaper petrol cars flat panel sat TV receivers and cheap smart phone. Enjoy the newfound opportunity. Result of globalisation and democracy.
