In­dia lacks skill not tech­nol­ogy

Down to Earth - - LETTERS -

This is re­gard­ing the story "Burn it all" (1-15 Oc­to­ber, 2017). In­dia should fol­low the ex­am­ple of de­vel­oped coun­tries where in­cin­er­a­tion has been suc­cess­ful. In 1982, I saw a mo­bile in­cin­er­a­tion plant col­lect and process solid waste from shops and homes in Nagoya, Ja­pan. The rea­son In­dia is un­able to op­er­ate even a sta­tion­ary plant in the cap­i­tal city in the 21st cen­tury is to do with be­hav­iour and skill, not tech­nol­ogy. The point is noth­ing works when politi­cians and bu­reau­crats are in­volved.
