Let’s take the first step towards Swach Bharat!

#AbMontuBolega campaign is all about taking a stand for places which need cleaning, people who need our attention and authorities who need to hear our opinions. Playing the role of a silent spectator is no more the cup of tea of the youth of India. The time has come for us to raise our voice and make a difference. Raising our voice against all that is dirty in India is our birth right. So, we must exercise the power of our voice, work towards a Swach Bharat and feel proud as responsible citizens!

Littering the streets is the most common practice in India. Most Indians think that roads are open dust bins. Nobody thinks twice before dumping the garbage of his/her household on the roads. Forget about people living in slums, even people living in posh areas also litter the roads as if they are the owners of the roads. They never care about others who have to face various difficulties because of the littering on roads.

It is not rocket science. It is simple logic that littering is wrong! There are dust bins and garbage dumps, so why do people throw garbage on the roads when they can dump their garbage in the place where it is meant to be dumped?

The next question: why do people litter? Well, we Indians are too lazy to cross the road to dump the garbage in dust bin. And the most common excuse of Indians: My neighbour litters the roads, so what is the problem if I do so? People make thousands of excuses to throw their garbage on the roads instead of searching for a dust bin. This mind set of Indians needs to change. Only then India can be truly Swach Bharat.

Many hazards are associated with littering. Most common is road accidents. Littering degrades natural areas and kills animals and plants. Littering degrades the quality of water. Littering is dirty and smelly and it is unhealthy for our environment as littering carries germs, viruses and bacteria which cause deadly diseases.

So how can we stop littering? Simple. Quit littering, set an example for others and then encourage friends and relatives to do the same. Then they can encourage others and slowly everybody will stop littering. Littering is a serious problem and it will continue to be a serious problem until we all take a stand! Together we have to take a stand because together we can make a huge difference. Yes, together we can make India free from littering, we can make India the cleanest country. Everything depends on us. So come on guys, Let’s take the first step towards Swach Bharat!
