When will Indians Stop Spitting on Roads?


Campus Times Pune

Driving on Indian roads is always an adventure. I guess we all can agree on that. Even a simple drive from your place to college and back home feels like a game of road rash, with people walking as if “unke baap ka rasta hai” and cars coming in and out, changing lanes as they please. Witnessing all this on the roads makes me think sometimes that India is indeed a FREE (to do whatever you want) COUNTRY. Speaking of Road Rash, I feel even the game is much more disciplined than the Indian roads.

Kanishk’s Plastic Collection Drive was covered by Sakal, Leading Marathi Local newspaper. Appreciating the efforts of E-leaders of PCCOE, they also publicized the activities under KANISHK during E-WEEK 2012. The story of KANISHK’s start includes starting up as beginners and amateurs, but now they have started creating a mark for themselves. As a part of E-Week 2012, the leaders of Kanishk collected waste plastic from nearly 100 homes in Nigdi Pradhikaran by going door to door. While the other half of the team was busy monitoring traffic at the Bhel Chowk and Akurdi Chowk in the same vicinity. Later that evening, all the students also received an appreciation from the Pune Traffic Police.

The overall event was a success as it was for a noble cause of public awareness. The team of 2012 including students of 2013 and 2014 batch from Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering surely set up an example before Youth, that the generation has still not forgotten their social responsibilities. Anikait Chavan – one of the leaders at Kanishk said that, even if everyone does their own part in following traffic rules or disposing garbage properly, taking care of the government properties as their own, there won’t be any need for any kind of awareness, campaigns or even rules and monitoring. He believes that the youth has the greatest power; Power to change thoughts, power to create a difference, power to at least stand for something good. It just depends on how soon one realizes and implements it in his / her own life.
