Delhi. Sankochi Srivastava, a resident of Pushp Vihar, has decided to avoid throwing garbage on road and other public places when others at looking at him. This, he claims is outcome of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by the Prime Minister.
Sankochi took this decision keeping in mind the current public sentiment regarding cleanliness after the campaign was widely promoted.
“Now that people are talking about clean India, it feels a little awkward to throw garbage in full public glare. However, if I do that when nobody is seeing me, there is no guilt feeling of doing anything wrong,” Sankochi explained his point of view, adding that he still practices his old habit of throwing trashes here and there, but only after making sure that nobody is seeing him.
“It’s just like farting. There is no embarrassment when we fart while nobody is around. We don’t even think that something bad just happened. It looks like a natural habit, as natural as throwing garbage anywhere,” he told Faking News.
Further explaining how he manages to feel perfectly normal while not using dustbin or peeing anywhere by the roadside, Sankochi said, “The moment garbage separates from by hand, I disown it mentally. From that point onwards, it’s laawaaris. If nobody is seeing me, I could literally shout, ‘Who the hell is responsible for this garbage? Bloody uncivilized people!’ Such is the level of my emotional disconnect with the thing which was mine just moments before.”
However, if someone sees Sankochi doing this, it makes it tough for him to detach himself from the trash lying on the road.
“As I am a law abiding citizen, so obviously I can’t kill the witness. So, it’s better to avoid doing such things in front of people,” Sankochi added.
Giving a piece of advice to people who still want to throw trash at places other than dustbins, Sankochi said they could do this while covering their faces with masks, just like robbers do while robbing a bank.
“One can also try this trick if one wants to pee by the roadside. Wear a mask, do the job and simply walk away,” Sankochi concluded.
