It is with immense disgust, disappointment and exasperation that I feel that Indians really do lack Civic sense!! Well you might wonder what provoked this animosity!! – Well it was nothing magnanimous to be given a thought……..Just the chewing gum that got stuck to my slipper today, did it all.
I do not understand why people have to spit it out on the road! It is really gross and definitely offensive! I happened to remember Singapore where Chewing Gums are banned since 2004. The reason for the same was the disruption of train services due to the actions of vandals who used to stick chewing gum to the automatic doors, thus preventing their functioning. People including myself crib about the view that one gets to see while landing at the Mumbai Airport – the entire Dharavi area which is considered as the biggest slum of Asia and many such issues. But then what is the point in showing a very flashy picture from the top……when the actual things cannot be concealed. I do not intend to be cynical but it is more of an observation which really irked me. Our country would be so much a better place to be in if people do not dirty it by throwing things around. Anyway this is for all those who happen to read this post…….Chewing gum is not Banned in India – But PLEASE DO NOT SPIT IT ON THE ROAD. Firstly it is annoying and I am thoroughly disgusted right now to even look it, forget trying to clean my slipper. And secondly it is very UNHYGIENIC!
