A word of praise for Pestom Sagar ALM 
   September 21, 2005

Pestom Sagar Residents Association's vermi-composting project received a glowing tribute on Sept 17 when Subrat Ratho, assistant municipal commissioner, BMC, visited the Association's vermi-composting project in Nana Nani Park, Road No six.

In the issue dated Sept 14-21, metro had reported about the Association's 10-day drive to vermi-compost nirmalaya generated by Ganesh mandals in the eastern suburbs.

Congratulating the ALM members, Ratho says, "There are few ALMs in the city who take an initiative of this scale. Pestom Sagar has indeed done a good job."

Ratho says he will promote Pestom Sagar ALM as an example of civic activism. "I want all ALMs to take up civic causes so that festivals do not create a mess. I will take up the example of this ALM and work on a larger segment next year."

Dr Vijay Sangole, the convener of the ALM, says Ratho's visit was a morale booster. "He appreciated our initiative and encouraged us to cover a larger area next year," says Dr Sangole.
