ALMITRA H PATEL was born in Bombay to Pheroze and Tehmina Sidhwa, in a large joint family home, but grew up in Devlali, near Nasik. Her father's love of trees, gave her a lifelong love of nature, a friendly aunt loved to show her the mysteries of caterpillars turning into butterflies, and explain the secrets of anthills and beehives and wasp nests and the lives of birds and little mammals.
Almitra did her B Sc with Chemistry, B.S. in general engineering and an M.S. in industrial ceramics at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology in USA) Two years after she returned, she met and married Hoshang, a Chemical and Metallurgical Engineer and had two daughters while heading a small family business and developing an import substitute for induction furnace linings for melting iron and steel. What she enjoyed most was providing technical help to customers to reduce waste and improve productivity.
In1972 she and her family moved to a farm outside Bangalore and started a poultry farm. All was well on their scenic country road until 1991, when Bangalore City Corporation began daily dumping truckloads of city garbage on both sides of the road and into the marshes and stream banks "because there is nowhere else to dump it". Till that time, like most city folk, Almitra never knew or thought about where city garbage ended up, or how. I was determined not to take a NIMBY attitude ("Not In My Back Yard") and have it dumped somewhere else, because that would simply mean that some other farmers would suffer. A solution had to be found Almitra decided to find it, and found it. Today she has been responsible for numerous states and corporations taking the situation of waste management seriously and doing something about it.
