The heritage rock – a three hundred billion year old rock which is the major attraction of Lalbagh, was filled with plastic covers flying all over the place and soft drink bottles. Shame on us people! A so-called hi-tech city with a very high educated crowd.
I did confront a few people as they threw the plastic bottle right by the way they walked. Surprisingly they answered in very good English. “What’s your problem madam ?” he says. “Are you an authority here ?”
I wish the education which taught him to answer in a foreign language when I asked him in Kannada would teach him a bit of civilisation too. Would he do it in Singapore ? Or USA? What kind of human decides to eat a bag of chips and throw the packet a few feet from where he was sitting, and walk away home clean without the slightest thought that he destroyed something that was just clean? Would he/she do it in their homes?
It took almost a week for the employees of Lalbagh to clean up the mess. I still see bottles thrown on tree branches, covers hanging from inside the bushes, and a bit of the nature’s beauty which was so ruthlessly destroyed by us, humans.
