Who cares for hygiene when deos are available

Would you rather apply a deodorant instead of taking a bath daily? Would you rather spray a room freshener instead of cleaning your room everyday? May be not. But this is exactly how the garbage woes of Mumbai city are going to be dealt with.

Some news report that to avoid the stink and the inconvenience that arises from Deonar and Mulund dumping grounds, the BMC has decided to spray the entire area with deodorant. Apparently 42,000 litres of a herbal deodorant at a cost of Rs 60.90 lakhs has come to 'relieve' the people residing nearby.

Well, though I appreciate that at least some initiative has been taken, I wonder if this could be the only solution. What happened about the earlier hoopla about people separating the garbage in two bags before disposing? Is something being done about it?

Or should we just pass by the garbage dumping grounds, take in a deep breath and say, "Wow, this garbage smells good".
