Diwali Cleaning: Beyond our homes

They say charity begins at home an these city boys proven it. It is easier to crib and complain about how dirty our country is and how filthy the streets are.A lot of people come strutting in their branded clothes alighting their even bigger and expensive cars only to be seen littering around.

On the other spectrum there are men who pull of their socks, push up their sleeves and pick-up weapons to make things better and the world a better place to live in.

Let us pose you a question. Did you engage in Diwali Cleaning this Diwali 2014? The answer is obvious. Yes! we all scrubed our homes clean. We de-cluttered both physically and emotionally. But after the ritual of bursting fire-crackers how many of us went on to clean our streets that were stained with the results of our entertainment? we all know the answer and the ridden guilt inside.

  1. But the sad fact is people will like this post but not even clean their own surroundings ……. people like it when others do it but they find it disgusting when they do it…… U0001f60fU0001f60fU0001f60f

  2. Dear Nikhil,
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts over this. I completely agree to what you have to say. We live in a world of ironies. The wider our living rooms the narrower are our hearts when it comes to welcoming people into them. We are very particular about the way we want to keep our homes, we are perpetually the opposite in our attitudes when it comes to doing the same to our streets and cities. Sad but true.
    Boys like these make us see the rosy paint in the picture over the grains. 
    P.S: please spread the word for us and join the bandwagon. Thanks a ton.
