Clean India : Why,How,Where Part18:30 PM
Toast to this beautiful world,
To the beautiful country
AND THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE..
TOGETHER LETS MAKE INDIA BEAUTIFUL!!!
I am a blogger, a travel blogger and as most travel bloggers I love to travel.There's something about the green grass and the long clean stretches of sea,that makes me go weak in my knees.I'm sure that's true for most of us.We all love to travel,and travel around anywhere.But there are sometimes,when we neglect what was beautiful,and what is now not,and we look for other options.
We keep on searching and searching for greener pastures and we somehow forget what is now there wasn't the same some years back..and in some way we have been part of this "not so liking" the place.
Confused,about what I am talking about?India is a beautiful country with many religions,festivals,amazing landscapes.What is missing is someone responsible to take care of it,politically as well as ethically.In that case there are places totally neglected and I agree its not totally our fault..but let me give you an example.
WHY CLEAN INDIA?
1)Lets say you bought a home,a nice sweet home.Over the years,due to laziness or extra work,you keep neglecting your home.Now you could always easily say your mom or dad would take care.But when they refuse to..do you sit back and stop taking care or cleaning home.We love our home,and each person is responsible for a clean home.
WE KNOW IT,WE CLEAN IT..AND HOW DO WE..?
Either we hire a maid,or we start on our own,we get phenol,broom,harpik,everything,and once our home is clean we are relaxed happy.
We all love to mess around,kids as little as 5-6 years to even grown ups.But why don't we at home because since childhood,we have been told to arrange things..or someone might scold you..
BUT WHAT DOES THAT GOT TO DO WITH CLEANING INDIA??
The mind always has a complex relationship with your personal interest.You might love to clean your own home,but when it comes to cleaning your neighbourhood you would refuse,or you might even be too busy.You would simply ask..oh common why me,,what do these sweepers do then,aint they paid well,cant they do if its their job.
Well,frankly,these sweepers ideally do their job,if they don't,the roads would be a pile of garbage,and we would be buried in tons of stinking sewage.BUT THAT NEVER HAPPENS..
If any of us have had a chance to take a walk in the early wee hours in the morning,you would see those sweepers working at their best,and still why is it that the roads are dirty!
IS IT BECAUSE OF US...UGLY INDIAN SAYS IT IS
And we all agree,and somehow we all know this fact deep inside.India is unclean because of our manners,the same manner which gets drastically improved when abroad.Cauz we know if we play around and mess in other countries like we do here,we might end up in jail or we might be ashamed.But never here...
I always envy the way europe is..it is my dream destination,who wouldnt want to live in a place so picturesque!!But then who would want to live in europe with the same mess,we create in India,we know it wouldnt just be acceptable.We might very well say,India is been like this since a long long time..
But for how long?I live in Bangalore and many of my friends who are born and brought up here say that bangalore used to be a green clean garden city.Not anymore...so what do you think have had happend?
This is process of pure neglect over the years by us, by everyone.
AND CAN THAT BE CHANGED,CAN SOMETHING LEAD TO CLEANER INDIA
Yes.If you very well know how to clean your home,clean India would not be that difficult.It might take 3-4 years,but it is not impossible.
BUT HOW CAN ANYONE HELP IN CLEANING INDIA..
The same way we clean our home.It all starts from within.Imagine a few days without a roadside sweeper,would you love to walk in pile of mess,or would you rather clean.
1)All you got to is "make a group of couple of friends" and work when you have free time.Start from your neighbourhood.
2)If there is noone who is with you,start on your own.There are still people in India who would love to join
3)Get creative,design your own road walls,neat and clean.
4)Remove posters..fix the pavement,fix manhole.
5)There are so many things which can be done,and one thing leads to another.
BUT WHY WOULD YOU?
I travel a lot,travel to places and its been recently that I see a whole lot of tourist places full of dirt.The beautiful goan beaches with plastics flowing,treks turning into a nightmare.
WOULD YOU PREFER TO TAKE YOUR GF TO A PLACE LIKE THIS,,OR WOULD YOU LOVE YOUR SON TO GROW UP IN AN ENVIRONMENT WHICH COULD BE AS UNHEALTHY AS IT CAN...BE
