After plowing through your delicious rat dinner you can head north to Mumbai to get a sweet whiff of that city’s garbage dump. Complaints about the vile odor coming from the dump have led city engineers to develop the brilliant plan of spraying perfume on the garbage in order to lessen the sickening stench. Over the past six months 42,000 litres of a herbal perfume costing $114,000 have been sprayed on two city dumps on an almost daily basis. "Perfuming the garbage has helped. Residents are complaining less. This will continue till we find a long-term solution," said a senior municipal engineer. (BBC)
