These were the small initiatives that we took in the period of one month.
I hoped for a better India, with toilets in every household and basic hygiene being followed but I was in for a big disappointment. It was not easy to get even one person build one, forget about the rest of India.
It was then that I resolved to make my own hygiene wish list which I would work towards fulfilling in the future.
- Soap or ash usage in every household to wash hands.
- Toilets in every household or at least one toilet for every 3 to 4 households
- Clean public toilets in the cities and towns
- Spotless streets with no litter and dustbins in every corner
- Eco friendly sewage system where all waste would be reused as compost in the future
Did you spot a person throwing wrapper? Instead of thinking what a bad person he or she is, why don’t you call them out and request them to throw it in a bin? Or if the person refuses to listen, calmly pick it up yourself and ensure that there is no litter around. The time for thinking is long past gone. If India needs to become clean, we all need to act and FAST!
Always getting into a fight is not a solution. If you feel that your advice is falling on deaf ears then do the work yourself. Clean the place up and you will definitely feel proud of yourself.
