As Kathmandu overflows with trash, the city is seeking not just to transform attitudes to waste – but the waste itselfFrom the air, Kathmandu seems to have a thousand winking eyes as the sun hits the solar panels installed on many homes across the city. But on the ground, the sun illuminates something very different: piles of plastic and household rubbish, strewn amongst the pagodas and along the labyrinthine streets. When we said we are building a playground and the materials come or we find them, everyone began laughingWe as the human race have hit the wall to some extent, and places like Kathmandu are the front bumper against that wallSo many youngsters are involved that often the mindset gets changed at home: kids tell their parents to use less plastic.

Ford will introduce a new EcoSport Titanium S variant in the Indian market in May. The new trim will sit at the top of the current EcoSport line-up. Ford had only recently rejigged the EcoSport line-up with equipment changes across variants.
The EcoSport Titanium S will come with a sunroof – something which is becoming an increasingly sought-after feature in India. This new variant will also come in a unique alloy wheel design with gun metal finish, black grille, black fog lamp housing and headlamp inserts, and a dual-tone exterior finish. On the inside it will come with all-black interiors with exterior colour-coordinated inserts which will set it apart from the lower trims. The instrument cluster of the Titanium S also features chrome rings unavailable on the other variants.
Aforementioned cosmetic changes aside, the Titanium S trim is expected to debut a new six-speed gearbox. This new gearbox will eventually replace the IB5 five-speed unit seen in all current variants.
Additionally, Ford is also readying another special edition of the EcoSport that will be called the EcoSport Signature Edition. Also due for a launch in coming months, this Signature Edition of the EcoSport will get unique graphics on the exterior and a different alloy wheel design, along with a rear spoiler.
While the addition of a sunroof and added features on the EcoSport Titanium S variant is sure to entice buyers, what remains a question mark for now is its pricing. Should Ford price the version significantly higher than the current Titanium+ trim, the EcoSport could find itself competing with SUVs from a segment above. Interestingly, of the larger SUVs the EcoSport Titanium S could compete with, the Hyundai Creta is due to sport a sunroof with the arrival of the facelifted version, this May.
