http://www.abmontubolega.com is a campaign by Strepsils.
Does only your home require cleaning? Think about it! Isn't India our larger home and we all have some duties towards keeping it clean and green. When we can clean our homes cant we all get together and clean our own beautiful country? Certainly we can.
#AbMontuBolega campaign tells you not to be a silent spectator. Raise your voice and make a difference. Just don't go with the flow even when you think the flow is not going right.
Check out Montu's video here. I am sure many of can relate to it. There are many a times we avoid raising our voices and share our opinions. What we think just resides in our minds and does not pop out. Montu is subsided right from the time he is a kid. First his parents, than friends,girlfriend and finally the boss. Every time he has a word people just ignore him and he has no other option but to be quite.But finally he realizes "Bin bole ab nahi chalega"(it wont working without speaking now)
He pops a strepsils and conveys his message quite confidently and strongly:)
Its a wonderful video and message is conveyed to us in a very simple and smart way. There is certainly a poitn in life where we just need to keep out foot down and raise our voice up.
We all want India to progress. We all want it to be a developed country and not a developing country. Than we as responsible citizens of India should get together and work towards this mission. The very most topic where India lags behind some developed nation would be cleanliness.We have talented youth, amazing farming, rich hermitage,diversified culture,values and much more...
Than why not clean roads? Are we so weak at infrastructure? Not really. We have best of mechanical and civil staff. But what matters is maintenance of such infrastructure.
While we all feel like contributing towards "SwachBharat" abhiyan, how much of it did we actually do? Clean up India is not a one time activity. It just does not happen one sunday morning when we wake up take a mop and walk down the streets cleaning away some paper garbage or dried leaves.Its actually a continuous process and should happen daily.
How many of us have encountered the below:
Its a 100% hand raise.right? All of us pass by such dirty brown saliva spots in our daily walk across the place.Would we like the walls of our homes in such a condition? Than why do we allow people to dirty walls of out nation!!
Why cant we stop it. If we find any one spitting we should raise our voice. Stop him.Tell him would he like this dirt in his home?
Some possible actions every Indian can take:
- Embarrass the spitter in public
- Take his address and promise him we would land there with tons of garbage to dirty his home :)
- Ask him to get a water bottle and clean up the mess he just made.
- Get a pan/gutkha and spit it back on his clothes..(Give him a run for his home to change over:))
Above bullet points sound and seem funny!! Maybe? or maybe not!! Have we ever tried it? Have we ever taken charge to stop these spitters who make the white all red!!
Lets do it than........There are places that need cleaning, people who deserve your attention & authorities who need to hear your opinions!
We know that raising our voices against all that is dirty in our country is a power that we all have. Let’s exercise the power of our voice & work towards a Swach Bharat
