Clear your throat, raise your voice!

A lot has been in the talks recently about clean and green India. Believe me, it's really tough for anybody to reach such big dream alone. If all the people don't come close together to keep the surroundings clean, it will remain a dream only. If you look at India, a lot of scope for improvement is there when it comes to cleaning our country.

From sacred river Ganga to posh colonies in metro cities, cleanliness is required everywhere today. Water is an essential part of our life which is being used as a medium to dump in garbage and waste material. Pollution has taken its toll giving rise to several incurable, deadly diseases. What a government can do to keep our country clean is not of prime importance than us, the people who if join hands together can make a huge difference to the society. Wondering that what one could do to have a cleaner India? The answer is 'A Lot' you can do. Some of the points which if taken care of, can contribute to the society significantly are:

1. Use Dustbins:

A recent visit to a Mall made me realize that the area outside it was filled with trash while the dustbins remained empty. The reason, habit of littering around by people. A slight change in this habit can save the environment as lots of insects make it their home giving rise to diseases.

2. Use Public Toilets     

I have seen many people using a corner or a secluded place to relieve themselves. There are many public toilets accessible which can be used to solve this problem. The public toilets also need to be properly maintained, a check to be kept so that they are hygienic enough to be used.

3. Avoid plastic if possible

From polythene bags to mobile phones, plastic is being used as a significant material in our day to day life. The problem, it is non bio-degradable material. Use paper bags or cloth based bags.

4. Follow a clean, hygienic lifestyle

wash hands for a hygienic lifestyle
I know this would be a tough call particularly for the people who are living out of their homes in different cities. The reason for following a healthy lifestyle is not just for your own good but also for your next generations which will adapt to your lifestyle and try to keep the society cleaner.

5. Make your vicinity green, plant some trees

This is something which needs no explanations. Trees regulate the temperature, keep the surrounding air fresh. The benefit, you breathe fresh air thereby remain healthy.

Blaming the Government or raising finger is easy thing to do. The main thing which you need to do is to keep your homes, your surroundings clean as well as green. The point is who will take the initiative? My answer, don't wait for anyone to take the initial step, go ahead make the first move. The others will follow.

As we become adults, ewe are more conditioned to behave in the society as it wishes. There will be people laughing at you, stopping you but if you know that you are doing the right thing, sooner or later they will realize and you would be surprised to see them standing beside you. A very well similar initiative is started by Strepsils with a campaign called #AbMontuBolega. The basic concept about the campaign is to bring people together to take a plunge in order to make India a clean place to live. We have kept quiet for long but till when it will go like this?

"The problem with fear is that more you run away from it, the more it comes closer to haunt you."
So I would request to take that initial step to make the country clean. After all it's your own country! Don't keep quiet now, stand up, clear your throats and raise your voice kyunki bin bole ab nahi chalega :)

Do check out about the campaign #AbMontuBolega at and follow on Facebook and Twitter.

'Welcome to Melbourne' a voice echoed as the plane landed at the Melbourne airport. There was a hustle and bustle as the passengers started removing their luggage from the cabin compartment. Pankhuri was delighted. She performed all the formalities of arrival, claimed her luggage, hired a taxi and left for the hotel. She had to stay in a hotel for first few days till all the formalities for her admission at the university were completed and the hostel allocated to her. She reached the hotel at around 10 in the morning. A blonde man with blue eyes, wearing a Grey suit who sat at the reception welcomed her. 'Welcome to the Melbourne Marriot, Ma'am. Here is your room card.' He said giving a swipe card to her. 'Thank you, Could you please arrange someone to fetch my luggage to the room?' she asked importantly. 'Sure!' he said.

I wish this night stayed....

Cold breeze grazing my feet Maybe it's an act so folly But my heart skipped a beat Surrounded by sheer melancholy Your whispers echoing in my ears Its difficult to see with Eyes welling up with tears Heart aching in writhe Winds changed the direction again Waiting for this since quite long No more I can abstain Come let's dance to the song Beneath the open sky Beside you I laid Now don't say bye I wish this night stayed...
