Walking along in Mylapore the other day, I came across an arresting sight - a toddler lying down as if asleep in a rubbish recycling cart.
The boy's mother was sifting among roadside rubbish for anything that she could salvage and recycle or sell on for a few rupees. She had her own cycle-with-trailer. By the time I had got her OK to take some photos, her son - Puray, as I heard it - was well and truly awake.
Puray seemed quite content in his resting place, and his mother - Sandiya is what I think she said - was clearly a well organised and enterprising kabari wali (to use the Hindi term for those who trade small-scale in waste). And India can teach the West an awful lot about recycling.
