Saturday Special: Snacks and Leftovers

Welcome to the Green Light Dhaba. For those of you who are new, we are Delhi's only "virtual dhaba." We talk about the environment and the economy, and we try not to make interesting things boring!

If you like what you see, please consider becoming a regular reader. There are a couple of ways to do that: you can "subscribe" to our feed; or you can follow us using Google Friends Connect or Networked Blogs. As we like to say, subscriptions are free--which is a mighty good price, even for a dhaba! Links to all those things are over there on the left and down just a bit.

On Saturday's we serve snacks and leftovers. In the snacks section, you'll find short bits and links that we think you will like. If you have ideas for material we could use in this section, please do let us know. Much of what you see in the snacks menu comes directly from readers like you! This week the menu is short, but I promise it won't disappoint.

In the leftover section, we have the best of the
Green Light Dhaba, for those of you who might not have seen it all.

In case you missed it in Thursday's post, today (Saturday) is International Day of Climate Action. For events in India, go here. For events elsewhere in the world, go here! It's very important to send a strong message on this issue.

Trash and More Trash

Next week, we will look at the trouble with other people's trash, including used condoms and ships that are ready for the scrap yard. Here's a sneak preview at some links related to that story.
  • Midway: What does trash do to Albatross chicks who live on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean? These photos will make your jaw drop.
  • End of the Line: A photo essay on the shipbreaking industry in Bangladesh. From Foreign Policy.
  • Dumped: Tehelka takes a look at our hunger for other people's trash.
  • False Identity: Tehelka tells the story behind a huge tub of poison floating off our coast.
