Guilty as Charged

environment, nature, save earth

I went to the beach,

Wrappers and plastic crackled under my feet.

 

I sat near the water shore,

The waves brought me bottles, straws, and more.

 

I walked down bare streets,

There was no respite from the burning heat.

 

I scanned the vast sky,

Smoky grey puffs ruined the sight.

 

The fact was crystal clear,

We are all just, murderers.

STOP ‘Litter’al Rubbish

If there’s one firmly nailed and fixed characteristic of mine, it is to not litter, NEVER. And if there’s one thing I heartily HATE, it’s people who have no shame in littering anywhere at anytime.

I don’t get it how people can readily and easily throw something on the road, in the sea, on the beach, in building premises, or anywhere else, except the GARBAGE BIN! It is absolutely ridiculous to see well dressed women, with their ace make-up on, and spouting Oxford English, who do not blink for even a second before tossing papers, wrappers, or any waste material out of train or bus windows! I mean, woman, there’s no point of you looking like an educated person when you behave like an untrained creature.

It just enrages me to witness people treat our spaces like a garbage bin. I mean, okay, I admit that there are few dustbins around but that doesn’t mean you have the liberty to defile any place. I have a side-pocket in my bag where I keep all my used wrappers, papers and what not. I get home and throw them all out in the dustbin there. If there’s no side pocket in your bag, you could carry a paper/cloth bag in which you can keep all the waste material and empty them out in your home’s dustbin. Don’t tell me you can’t even do THIS little. If you can’t, then you’re just a lazy awful piece of rubbish whose character stinks worse than a garbage dump.

I once confronted a woman who threw a ball of paper out of the train window. She replied saying that it was anyway dirty outside (what a dumbshit reason!). I asked her, “So does that make it correct to throw that paper? Is this what you are teaching your children?” Her reply was just an embarrassed and shameful expression.

The floods that happened recently in Mumbai was not solely due to the fault of the BMC. It was jointly the fault of all those so called ‘proud’ Mumbaikars who choke our lovely city every second of the day with their litter!

In August last year, there was a massive clean up of the northern part of Versova Beach. A staggering 2.8 lakh kilograms of trash was cleared! That is utterly disgraceful and immensely disgusting.

I request you, my dear reader, to stand up and stop people from treating our roads, tracks, and other beautiful spaces, like a garbage bin.

I hope you will join me in putting a stop to such menaces and help make our spaces clean, lovely, and beautiful to live in.
