As temperatures soar in the months of May-June and schools and colleges start downing their shutters, we—the people living in cities—tend to undergo a transformation. We start dreaming of cooler climes. We begin pouring over travel advertisements with longing. And we leave behind our humdrum lives and jobs and schools, etc, to zoom off to destinations exotic and non-exotic. We become travellers.

Gobar Gyan / A Pondering Panditji

This year, when the noise and fervor of Durga idol immersions died down, I saw a few pieces of good news. In Ghaziabad, near Delhi, idols were immersed in a pond specially made for the purpose – and not in the Hindon river. Every year, after idol immersions during Dussehra, this already polluted river ran thick with tonnes of mud and silt, paints, rotten flowers, and many kinds of non biodegradable items. Not this year.
