Once upon a time, there was a boy named Rad. He lived down the valley in a pretty place called Bari.
While chasing a deer one day, he caught a glimpse of the beautiful Lem, the one with the flowing tresses and belonging to the illustrious Grass family.
The poor boy was smitten incurably.
He followed her past the tumbling stream, climbing huge boulders and walking in unfamiliar terrain.
Cuts, bruises and falls did not deter him as he believed that he had found the love of his life. He plodded on.
One eventful day, he caught up with her and on bended knees he professed his love for her. Lem too was smitten by this strange upright man from a faraway land. The first of his kind to scale the treacherous mountain trails and make it up the valley.
They settled down together in a land that overlooked swirling clouds and mesmerising sunsets.
Years passed by and one day while chasing another elusive deer he ran down the valley and bumped across his old buddy by the riverside.
The upright man with a pony tail sized him up before recognizing him. They hugged, hooted and thumped each other's backs.
"My friend it's so good to see you again! I am so happy for you. I almost didn't recognize you. The meandering mountain trails has twisted your erestwhile uprightness but you look to be in a happy loop."
"Life is a swirl up there..." replied Rad laughing, as he plodded his way back up another spiralling trail.

Super Duper Stoked to working with OKC Monastery in Darjeeling as our Zero Waste partner.
Yesterday, we had a lovely interaction with all the resident monks on global warming, climate change, species extinction, degrading air and water quality and how Everyday Environmentalism activity like composting and plastic-eco-bricking is tremendously impactful in stemming the rising tide of nonchalance and helplessness.
Keep swiping to see the progress of the composting unit we had created at the monastery. The Black Gold is in the making! :)
It is possible to clean up Darjeeling. It is possible to clean up India and the world. It is possible to live without toxic landfills. Complex as the problem may seem...the solutions are embarrassingly simple!
Keep the faith!
