Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan has started to spread its root in various big as well as small cities…….

People are talking and merely instructing others not to litter on roads……

I saw something good while I was passing by a road………..

A tractor was pulling a vacuum cleaner which was cleaning skirts of Divider and footpath…….. leaving no particle of dust on the road.

I was pleased and felt proud that at last something moved ahead………….

I kept watching that cleaner but suddenly one thing struck my mind………..

THE SPEED of the TRACTOR was too slow…………….. adding its contribution by increasing mercury…………

What I meant is – It is Good that we are cleaning our city but on the other hand we are polluting it too………

It is already 45 degree celsius in summers and we are contributing it to 47 or 48 by polluting the environment……..

Well, technically speaking, a Tractor consumes approx. 2 liters of diesel per hour which costs somewhere about 100 rupees….. i.e 100 rupees per hour.

The cost may be more if the consumption rate is more.

Now, the problem remains the same – DUST

There is a proverb- “to kill two birds with a single shot or stone or arrow” which ever weapon you like………..

We have MNREGA, wherein we can employ people to work.

We have unemployment also. Why not link MNREGA to this work.

People will get employment, there will be no extra pollution which was present due to TRACTOR….

And If needed give them few pennies extra to plant a tree in between  divider and water it daily……..

And this will be within 2 liters diesel cost i.e 100 rupees.

I killed 4 birds with a single shot……… but this killing is favorable…….

ha ha ha ha ……
