Citizen Failure



“Are you a politician asking what your country can do for you or a zealous one asking what you can do for your country? If you are the first, then you are a parasite; if the second, then you are an oasis in a desert.” Khalil Gibran

    Interestingly, you will find such heaps at places like Johar Town as well. We as citizens are definitely responsible but just think who’s responsible for cleaning these Big Bins?? What about last government’s bio-recycling efforts? Why don’t we go for Bio-diesel or getting energy by burning bio-degradable waste including manure, rotten fruits, vegetables and human waste especially from hospitals??

    @ Farrukh: Yes, we do need more trash cans.

    @ Hasan: A waste processing plant is required to process tons of rubbish, in near future. Off course city and state has to play an active role.

    I guess these are our few ROLEs,

    * Eat it and throught it (Govt will pick it up)
    * In the Car always through it out from the window (What a shame)
    * On the top of the bridge, no one is watching just throuhg it (Thief)
    * In the Park who cares, we paid the ticket (huh)
    * In the toilet just flush it (what the heck)

    Options how we can teach to public,

    * Media meida and media, if we can teach them how to dance through the media than why not these kind ot advertisments or programs.
    * News papers
    * School
    * Masjid
    * Emails
    * Blogs

    Government cant wash our hands all the time, please do your duty. We cant blame all on the Govt.
