  1. Today I had a different experience while doing Swacch Bharat near Begumpet, Hyderabad. I was removing posters on the walls by sprinkling water. Two college students in English were saying, :I dont know yah, what this man is doing here”. The two college girls must have thought that I am a poster boy removing posters and only to paste a new one on seeing my complete white hair. I just smiled and kept quiet.
    Another boy with a bag on his bag was watching me.He waited for a few minutes and asked, “Uncle, what you are doing?”. I just said, “I am cleaning these posters and doing swacch bharat”. He immediately retorted, “Why should you do? The government is collecting tax. The Telangana government has increased the bus fare too and collecting money every where”. I saw this boy getting down from the bus and perhaps, he must be paying through nose. By looking at the boy, I thought he must be struggling to pay for bus fare.
    But he helped me to affix Swacch Bharat sticker after cleaning the pillars. He was interested in helping me every day and offered to help me. Even though he is a school going child, he seemed to have understood a bit of government functioning. There is a lesson every day, while doing Swacch Bharath.

  4. Hi All,

    Really appreciate this cleanliness drive, hope we can reach the results slowly.

    I’ve some suggestions to the governing body who can take strict actions, then only we can keep the cleanliness forever. The suggestions are:

    1. Stop the use of plastic carry bags by overnight (like Mr.Modi did on currency notes). Let each and every body carry re-usable cloth bags. And for buying non-veg items, people can use fish/ meat trays with lids. All should make it a habit to carry these to implement the cleanliness drive effectively.

    2. Stop the use of plastic bottles especially drinking water bottles. Every body can carry a small steel/Tupperware bottles in their bag/scooter/car. If they need water they can purchase on half the price from each shops occupied with drinking water dispenser. Govt must tax heavily from those who use plastic bottles. So slowly plastic bottle usage will come down. Software drinks should be on tetra packs and with strict dumping instructions.

    3. Impose heavy penalty on those who throw wastes. It should not be 100 or 500. It should be minimum 5000/-. Here people have the tendency to throw even sweet/chocolate wrappers on streets. By imposing penalties and enough advertisements, I hope this can be reduced. Industrial dumping should be fined heavily with imprisonment. Still each and every local governing body in India fails to curb the illegal posters and advertisements on streets. It’s easy to catch the culprits (They keep phone numbers in each posters). Another curse is election posters. We have to learn a lot from western countries about it. Even though our elections are over now, we can still see the posters of candidates.
