In this Sept. 7, 2012 photograph, an Indian ragpicker rebuilds a shack at an impoverished neighborhood of ragpickers on the outskirts of New Delhi, India. Those whose survival depends on this gray market in trash fear their lives are about to be upended. Because where they see money in those mountains of garbage, the New Delhi government sees electricity. Desperate for cheap energy, the Delhi government is experimenting with power plants fueled by garbage. One plant is now running on a trial basis and two more are under construction.
