Better my city - Chennai
Date: Mon, Aug 10, 2009 at 11:04 PM
The two most abominable things about Chennai are private transportation and drainage. While the former robs out of the bourgeois, the latter takes its own route into the streets and has annihilated the rivers and ponds out of the map. Though the government should be held accountable for this, the irresponsible disposal of trash, reflects on the people who make this city happen. Path of the rivers now find plastic forming the boundary for the open drainage system blocked by illegal raisings. At the time when contagious diseases caused by lack of cleanliness are increasing, the latest being swine flu, people have to adapt themselves to cleaner habits. Next time when you go out make sure you dispose the unwanted into a bin than in the middle of the road through the window of your car or on the road-sides and especially beaches and other public places. As for as autos are concerned, when the government transports are becoming more and more friendlier than some guy who charges equivalent to reach moon for taking you to the next neighborhood, people should use them often. It’s about time we chennaities make an impression by reducing our “foot print”.
