Bindeshwar who? You are unlikely to know this name unless you are preparing for the Civil Services Exams or you read newspapers till page 12. Bindeshwar Pathak has been awarded the 2009 Stockholm Water Prize - equivalent to Nobel Prize on Environmental Issues. And the headline (if you can call it that at page 12 of the Times of India) merely mentions "Sanitation expert bags Water Prize" - no name in the headline. Contrast this with the star status accorded to Amartya Sen for a pseudo-Nobel Prize on Economics. This in an era when environmental issues need to be addressed with screaming headlines on the front pages of every newspaper and magazine (imagine the awareness that would come if everyday the headlines of all newspapers talk of environmental issues.)
Still do not know who Bindeshwar Pathak is? Seen Sulabh Toilets? Ah! Now you know him!
