Five dogs turned blue in Mumbai.
That was a story that journalist Deepak Gharat broke this past week. He was following up on a story in the industrial zone of Taloja, home to about 1,000 pharmaceutical and chemical factories. Every week, there’s something going wrong over there, he says. Industrial waste catches fire. Dead fish float up to the surface of the local river en masse.
Last week, he noticed a canine of unusual hue snoozing under a truck. Unable to believe his eyes, he took pictures and mailed them to his newsroom.
