Bangalore, Oct 9: Inspired by Prime Minister Narendra's Modi's 'Swachh Bharat campaign' a group of youngsters in Bangalore decided to clean up their locality on Oct 2, thereby setting an example that all you need is your will to do a good deed.

Our Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked all of us to take up the "Swachh Bharat Campaign" on Mahatma Gandhi's birth anniversary. The campaign is India's biggest ever cleanliness drive and over 3 million government employees and schools and colleges students of India participated in this event on that day.

Youngsters join hands to clean up their locality

A group of friends and I decided to clean up the streets of the community in which we live. We - Satwik Pai, Aayush RA, Akhil Krishna Mohan, Shaunak Srivastava, Gautam Nair, Kaustabh Hegde, Amartyadev Bhattacharyya, Nandu Gopan, Anirudh HG, and I, Rohan Jaisimha - met at 8 am to clean the streets of Defence Colony in Indiranagar, Bangalore.

We got the idea from one of our friend who did a similar thing for his neighbourhood. We picked up and cleaned all plastic items, glass bottles and cigarette butts on the streets by picking them up and putting them into our trash bags. The waste was mostly present on the street corners.

Road becomes garbage dump by noon

The cleanliness drive was in two sessions, from 8am-10am and 4pm-5:30pm. The sad part is that by the time we got back for the afternoon session, the road was back to how it was in the morning.

Many people came up to us to tell us what we were doing was good and appreciated out efforts.

All in all, it was a good experience cleaning up knowing that it was beneficial to many people.

Hope for a Clean India

We hope to set an example in our community for others to come forward to clean or at the very least to refrain from throwing garbage everywhere. We have to, as a nation, come together and strive to keep our nation's streets, neighbourhoods, beaches, playgrounds and environment clean.
