The Garbage Valley (Climate Change Monster)
Kashmir is renowned for its beauty, pristine peaks, virgin meadows and cascading rivers. Where ever you look there is something beautiful to praise. But is this the only truth???? There is another ugly facet of Kashmir. Where on this planet would you find garbage flowing away with glacial waters? Clogging the beautiful streams and ruining the pristine natural surroundings. This is the truth that we are face to face with. Kashmir is losing its virginity to human greed and waste. Kashmir with its mounds of garbage lying here and there is becoming a methane-producing factory. The methane gas in larger quantities is very harmful to the humans, animals and environment as a whole. Garbage coming from our houses which is nothing but waste. This is the notion that has been accepted by everyone. This Documentary wants to change this belief and highlights that this garbage can be converted into useful manure, which can enrich the agricultural productivity. Waste is a resource. The prime focus of the film is to highlight method of decomposing the insidious garbage by using natural and eco-friendly decomposers. This process, though yet to find a public eye, has debuted as a pilot project in the Kashmir valley at one of the garbage-dumping site at Pahalgam also the alternatives through which we can get rid from this menace is at the source. This Documentary shows how Dumping sites can be converted into manure and how can we control this issue on which everyday Conferences, debates, workshops are going on, can be controlled if we learn how to keep biodegradable and non- biodegradable in two different dustbins at the source means at our respective homes, offices or other places. This Documentary highlights how this Kashmir valley, which is known as Heaven on earth, has been converted into a Garbage valley, which is really a great disastrous for the Environment and is responsible for the Climate change of this beautiful valley. Waste is not an issue for one person but a menace for the society as a whole. It is high time that we take measures to properly dispose of waste before the situation gets out of hand.
