We in India face a lot of problems at every step and the main reason is either corruption or the unending population of our country, but what if we have a platform for speaking up all the wrongs which are happening around us, a wrong is a wrong and now we have a chance to speak up because Strepsils has started a campaign #AbMontuBolega. Yes! And Montu k sath ab hum Sab bolenge.
I live in a city which is known as City beautiful, yes I live in Chandigarh which was planned by the French people and is said to be the only planned city of India. Thanks to the French people who made such a city, but the sadness about it is the cleanliness part. The cleanliness worker either is constantly having fun smoking and having chai at the nearby tea stall or is enjoying a day away.
The regime has got beautiful parks, but who would conserve the beauty of these parks, the people? Yeah, we do, but we can just help by not littering our surroundings, but what about the nature waste- the leaves of the trees, sand and silt?
The manhole is wide open so that a small kid can have a good time swimming in it or he may die for his fate was not in his favour. The manhole is so big nowadays that even an adult would fall into it, we have lodged a charge with the MC so many times, but the workers come, check and tell us that we will do the work some other day to traverse the whole.
The open grounds can be shaped to appear more beautiful if the proper grass is grown in all such places and also this would reduce dirt at other positions because such open grounds are one major ground for dirt and silt at other stations.
I sometimes imagine if Chandigarh is said to be one of the cleanest cities in India, I seriously feel sorry for those who are living in other cities because Chandigarh is not truly a completely clean city.
The police of Chandigarh is no less when it comes to corruption. Yes! We are afraid of Chandigarh police, which has its quote as “We care for you” but they really don’t care for us what they care for is their pockets. Sometimes or many of the times they will stop you, check your documents, try hard to find, out some fault and if not they may simply ask you for some bribe or they will just chalan you for anything.
Not only government organizations, but we the citizens of this country also need to change. We should not throw things anywhere; we can carry them along and throw it where ever we find proper dustbins. Can we stop peeing in the open? Yes, we can. Can we make sure that we don’t spit? Can we make sure that we maintain our surroundings clean to the extend we can without the assistance of our government? Can we make sure that we don’t involve ourselves in any type of corruption? Can we start loving our country?
