Good luck! Don't be disappointed if there is no reply. It is a relatively old research paper - the authors may have moved, changed their email and so on. And secondly, most people will not entertain vague requests - until and unless proper identification of the sender is provided.
It definitely won't die out InshAllah. I've been researching on this for a while now and I really do want to have a greener thumb. I will most definitely follow up with these authors after I have shifted completely and settled. Giving exams presently so haven't had the opportunity to think much about the garden area :(
But since this is going to be my first garden, and I love diy projects, I will most definitely look into this Arif bhai, and if i do find a source for red wrigglers, will post it here. If not, then I will hopefully one day be able to provide the helpful members some from my own compost bin *fingers crossed*

Hi. I am working on composting and my ingredients are kitchen stuff(organic) and wood chips. It is taking very very long time so to speed up the process i need these Eisenia fetida (Red Wigglers) Earthworms. Please help me to get these from Lahore or from any member of this forum.
