Board Expressing Outrage at the Vadavathoor garbage dump, seen at Kalathilpady

Welcome to Vadavathoor – Kottayam’s Garbage Dump

A flex board at Kalathilpady, close to the town limits of Kottayam, Kerala, sarcastically spews venom against a garbage dump at nearby Vadavathoor. Tons of garbage produced by Kottayam town and surroundings is being dumped near here for two decades now, and shows no sign of abating, despite several protests. The stench when you near Vadavathoor on the KK Road has reached unmanageable proportions. Kalathilpady is the “gateway” to Vadavathoor. This will pretty soon grow into a catastrophe if something is not done fast. Yeah, right. In our country.

Translation:

“We, the residents of Hell, welcome you to Vadavathoor. Please feel free to enjoy our stinking breeze.”
