Why you like it?

Model Answer:

Well, there are hundreds of rules that we have to follow and most of the time we do not feel like following them But It’s more like a compulsion.

What it is?
Here I would like to talk about one rule which I follow wholeheartedly and I like the most and this particular rule is ‘NOT TO LITTER’ in public places.

It’s quite unfortunate that my country India is one of the dirtiest countries in the world it’s not actually the country is dirty but people are very careless toward maintaining cleanliness especially when it comes to public places.

Whenever they visit any public place for example parks or gardens or they use public transport they do not hesitate to throw the waste wherever they wish.

It’s not uncommon to see empty plastic bottles, aluminum cans, chips bags here and there and it justifies that people are not following this rule at all.

But I always try to follow it and for this reason whenever I travel or visit any public place I always keep a plastic bag with me. This is to ensure that I do not have to litter if I eat candy or have a cold drink I keep the waste in that plastic bag and Whenever possible or I see a dustbin around I dump it properly.

In fact, if I am at a public park and I see an empty can or plastic bag I don’t hesitate to pick it up and dispose of it properly.

Sometimes I see people are so careless they just throw wherever they wish and I intentionally pick the waste right in front of them and dispose of it properly which often embarrasses them as well.

Why you like it?
The Government of India is doing a lot to make India Clean and I think it is the duty of every Indian to play ifs part. This is the reason why I always try to keep my surroundings clean.

In fact, there is an NGO in my city that runs campaigns regarding cleanliness and I always participate as a volunteer.

I must say that if somebody does not follow this rule in at public place he or she has to pay a penalty of one thousand rupees but it’s not strictly implemented at all, that’s the reason why we don’t see anyone following this rule.

So, I would really love to see if Government strictly apply this rule in future and people too become responsible towards it and just like me like this rule and follow it wholeheartedly.
