Sights from a three-decades-old waste recycling hub
In one of Bengaluru’s oldest areas, nestled within the bustling KR Market, is Jolly Mohalla.
At first sight, you wouldn’t think much of Jolly Mohalla, shadowed as it is by street vendors hawking colourful flowers, fresh vegetables and dirt-cheap electronics.
But, walk a little further, and you will find a buzzing market of a different kind - a place where plastic trash such as ballpoint pens and old cassettes find a second life.

Inside, he found a whole new world.
