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
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
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.
