Impact of voicing your opinion!

Staying silent has never been the solution to any of the problems since times immemorial. So it is high time, that all of us take efforts and voice out ourselves for the better of this country and take our country India to laudable heights. There must be a commitment to end the dehumanising practice of manual scavenging that is prevalent. We need to put end to such practices for humanity and take up practices that would really make Swacch India.

Cleanliness would come to prevail when everyone commits to phase out indestructible materials such as in packaging even while phasing in alternative material or practices that do not burden the environment, and keep it largely dirt-free. It is required that important measures are taken in this regard so that the best of interests of health and hygiene are maintained. There must be some plans and policies where the government and other agencies could acknowledge the contribution of rag- pickers and others involved in resource recovery by facilitating their access to segregated discards at or close to source.

The voicing out is essential for promising proper resources to allow the local bodies to pay decent wages and offer better living standards and working conditions to conservancy workers and laborers. They are at the grass root level of the economy and must be given the essential commodities and requirements so that they can sustain their life. There must be awareness created through adequate promotion of the  decentralized composting or  better treatment plans of organic discards so that the major portion of the garbage stream is diverted from the dump- sites or landfills. This awareness would come when the best minds with the best of options and opinions come forward and lay down the plans for the welfare of the society and make their implementation seem possible and feasible. It should not merely be on papers and books, instead put to practice so that there are higher chances of the much needed progress and growth in all the spheres and arenas of the developmental areas.

The necessity is to show and implement the power of speaking out on the issues that matter, and health, hygiene and cleanliness are the major issues need to be tackled with utmost care and attention. We merely cannot be spectators to anything that is going on and around us without paying the heed to what is important for all of us dutiful and responsible individuals. The need of the hour is to wake up ourselves and that the whole of India wakes up and all Indians will have to take up initiatives to wipe up the centuries-old dirt of the long prevailing system of gender discrimination, casteism and racism. The nature calls to drastically capture and curtail the consumption of unhealthy and unkempt measures that have been long dwelling. We strongly need to voice our opinions and create an impact on the society.
