Trash pile in Manali, India

Haunted by Trash Mummies

Ah, the blistering summer heat and its not-so-gentle reminder of life’s excesses: clothes, pounds, commitments, junk bought and never needed – all just clinging on with no real purpose, making us sweat.   Summer makes it unbearable and, if we’re lucky, pushes us to lighten our load for the journey ahead. Burning Trash in Dharamsala,...
