Clean & Green #WordlessWednesday

I was waiting in traffic when I saw this wall with the message by the Pune Municipal Council exhorting the citizens to plant more trees .

The rest of the message said that green is clean.

But I’m quite sure they didn’t mean that plants should grow wild out of a wall that’s holding up a Railway track . Nor does this look like a particularly clean and green place.

Does it ?

I’m beginning to despair that even a basic task like keeping something clean is beyond the scope of ordinary people .

As for those wonderful people who man our Government departments, expecting them to do their work is a Utopian dream.

Has the Government’s Clean Green Campaign been successful in your part of the country?

I haven’t seen a sign of it , least of all in. Government related enterprise .

Sharing this post with Esha and Natasha on #WordlessWednesday.

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!

    Unless, people carry the same sense it is impossible to make that change…anywhere!

    People have to make that change on their own, but it is good to lead by example. The government putting signs up is a bit of a joke (not funny, either) in my view. This is far from leading by example.

    Here in the United States, we mostly do local efforts at planting new trees and maintaining the trees that we’ve already planted. I was trained to be a tree steward, so that I can have the training necessary for tree maintenance.
