Join Barbara Pyle as she journeys to New Delhi, India to visit her friend, entrepreneur and nuclear physicist Ashok Khosla. Ashok puts his brain power and business-sense to work at his organization “Development Alternatives”.
“Development Alternatives” provides environmentally sound jobs for thousands of people in India. The jobs range from paper production to brick making. All of the businesses use discarded waste or readily available materials such as mud as their primary supplies… so they don’t destroy natural resources. The production processes are labor intensive, which creates more jobs.
