Garbage City: Mysore's Makeshift Dump Yards

It's something we've all become quite immune to: little mounts of garbage lining pavements, larger hillocks of trash gracing street corner, roads littered with debris and filth of unknown provenance. One thing is clear: waste is seriously mismanaged in India and an indication of a failure of civic sense as well as governance. Mysore is one city where this failure is clearly evident, especially in the empty lands outside the city that have over the years been colonised by ton upon ton of solid waste.
