We all should do something in our own way to preserve nature around us.If we try to be little more aware and careful towards our surroundings, that would also be a contribution in helping preserve our Mother Earth and its environment.
I always feel sad when i see people spitting anywhere on the road while walking or travelling.People also recklessly throw garbage anywhere on the road,at public places or in the train practically everywhere possible! This irritates and irates me.I always make faces when i catch a person doing so.In the train also if i see a person throwing paper or garbage anywhere i show the expression of discomfort and try to make that person feel guilty.I strongly feel the urge to persuade him not to do it again at a public place or in open.I feel like asking -"Do you throw garabge in your own home anywhere like this?".If he/she would say "No!" then I would ask-"Then why here so?" (and if he/she replies "Yes" then I would say "Shame on you! itna bada/badi hoke itna nahi sikha kachra kaha fenkna chahiye?!").But this is all i just feel! I wish God gives me courage to actually speak my mind in public!
If I go on a long journey or picnic or on tour then i carry a Big Sack or Bag with me and request people to throw any garbage in that bag only or hand it over to me.I tell them,"I don't mind accepting garbage from anybody so please give it in my hands and i will do the needful. But please please don't litter the place and throw the stuff here and there." People in India have a wrong notion that they can throw litter/garbage from moving train anywhere.Who is going to benefit by keeping railway tracks clean anyway?But it is wrong.If they throw plastic material out of a running train ,it does not get destroyed due to its non-recycling property and harm environment badly.
Do we all realize the consequences of spitting and throwin garbage anywhere in open/public place?It can spread epidemic.It can nurture the growth of rats,cockroaches and other such rodents which spreads dieseases and increases health related issues.It can portray a dirty image of our city/state/country in other cities/states/countries.
We should all behave responsibly.Not only we should ourselves try to keep our city as clean as possible but also stop people doing the wrong.If we ourselves stop and make other stop spitting on the roads/throwing garbage any where on the road/out of running train/at public places that bit would also be equivalent to a great help in order to make our city/country a better place to live!
So lets all make an effort to keep our Mumbai Clean and Healthy!
