§ We go about painting the roads and walls with our phlegm and paan remains as though its our bathroom.

§ We hate to give work to our lazy bum and are happy to throw the garbage just outside our dwelling or the chocolate wrappers and banana peels anywhere we feel like doing so.

§ We are blind to the ‘Public toilets’ and consider the entire area around us as one.

§ We consider ourselves to be the ‘Lord of the Roads’ and honk incessantly even when we have taken the wrong route.

§ We love to demonstrate our racing skills on the road and zebra crossing et..al just don’t feature in our dictionary.

§ Our idea of celebrations is playing loud music @ 1 a.m, not paying heed to requests by people around that their kids r wailing or their elders are finding it difficult to sleep.

§ We love to carve out our names on the historical monuments which is damn easy when compared to trying to make it to the books of history.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” –  Maria Robinson

And after doing all these, we say our country is not clean and unfit to reside in? Whom are we trying to deceive, but ourselves?

As the new year approaches, let’s work towards keeping our country clean and green. Let’s give Mother India the respect she deserves so much.

Let’s all look forward to a happy, clean and healthy 2010 🙂
