Without punishment nothing works in India. CM cannot like Modi be expected to clean our garbage. Why in good colonies like Jodhpur park people are not aware of their responsibility to throw garbage or deposit when corporation van comes. If we do not to keep our house and locality clean no one can. Let this be taught to children in the school and let them be ambassador at homes and motivate their parents to keep their own area clean.
Each locality can select body from senior citizens who will have more time to look after this aspect .
If motivation does not work the fine may be an answer. more

We are also facing similar problem in Baguiati specially for plastic waste.Hence sr citizen and children can take initiative and teach their house to do the right thing to keep the area clean more  
I welcome the initiative to clean our city. This should not be fixed only to Jodhpur Park area. It should spread to greater Kolkata and if possible to whole WB. The question is how is it possible?
Yes by forming local bodies of senior people who can watch and take suitable decision according to their locality.
There should be awareness propaganda in schools, Municipalities, Kolkata Corporation, and from Government side citing how it will help us.
Unfortunately we don't have any such general public activities in WB. Probably we are insensitive about our environment. This shows how we are busy with our selfish activities, without looking at community betterment. This comment is probably true for all political leaders, electronic as well as print media , so called local dadas and mostly for so called intellectuals. more  
Good suggestion. But why good colonies like Jodhpur Park? Let it be across Kolkata. I feel it will be more easy to associate senior citizen and children in the housing complexes. more  
We prefer to find out our excuses,rather than do our jobs.Our job is to deposit home wastes/garbage either to the Corporation van or to the garbage collection point/ centre,when we have to go out earlier.Our job is not to criticize GoI for a cleaner India programme but motivate all residents to ensure that garbages do not pollutate and infect us. more  
My dear Chawlwji


I personally feel that only exemplary punishment and/or public shaming would be the only

way we can tackle this problem. Let us face facts that as a nation we have little or no

Civic sense unlike other countries.

Consequently this has to be enforced over a period of time with heavy dose of fine for

the first offence which should rise exponentially for the second time and for the next

total withdrawal of all Corporation/Municipal facilities. Unfortunately this would

affect even the person/persons who are law abiding but till something drastic is done

nobody in Kolkata would think of doing anything to help the Government in keeping the

city clean. This would also create resentment against the wrong doers and the rest might

force these people to fall in line.

It would be very difficult if not impossible to identify the culprits and so a community

based approach might work.

Best wishes.
