This Waste Warrior From Mumbai has Cleaned 6.7 Tonnes of Trash From 11 Waterfalls!

In the last 18 months, Dharmesh’s group, consisting of 20 members has managed to clear over 6.7 tonnes of garbage from eleven waterfalls in Maharashtra, which includes Tapalwadi, Jummapatti, Zenith, Pandavkada, Chinchoti, Anandwadi, Kondeshwar, Bhivpuri, Palasdari, and Ambewadi.

 

Dharmesh Barai was born in Uttar Pradesh. He was in class three when his family shifted to Mumbai, where his father worked as a groundsman.

He talks to The Better India, recalling the fateful first day of Class 10 when his father passed away.

“He would often tell me that he dreamt of seeing me graduate. His dream didn’t come true while he was alive but I wasn’t going to let him down,” says Dharmesh.

And so, he worked hard to complete his graduation from the University of Mumbai. He also completed a diploma in Human Resources from the Wellingkar Institute of Management, Mumbai. He also worked a string of part-time jobs to make ends meet.

But amid all the difficulties, Dharmesh recalls how waterfalls were always his happy place.
