"Zabaleen" is the Arabic term for those visionary and enterprising people whose culture revolves around recycling. The Zabaleen are experts at "transforming one man's garbage into another man's gold" and aspire toward a net zero-waste economy. Applied and supported this could lead to true energy independence, not only by radically reducing our demand for "raw materials" and hard to extract natural resources but by recycling other less obvious phenomena and materials that are now wasted.

BBC News - Pune in shock at restaurant bombing
And to think that it happened on Valentine's Day... :(
This is so very sad! The German bakery is the lovely place where we had those meals and delicious juices with Regina before leaving for Mumbai when we were in Pune studying Biogas and Biochar systems with Dr. Anand and Pria Karve. My heart goes out to the victims and to the great citizens of progressive Pune.
