Cleanliness is next to Godliness.We must not only keep our home clean but also our public spaces. Bus stations, railway stations, parks and gardens, roads, footpaths add to the community places.Every person uses the bus and railway stations almost regularly. These places need to be hygienic and clean to make us feel comfortable while traveling. Usually, these are the dirtiest places. People throw papers and polythene bags around. They sometimes spit in these places too. These places need special care to maintain sanitation. One can make several efforts in doing this. The waste should not be thrown on the roads. They should be disposed in the dustbins. One should use recycled and eco-friendly products such as paper or jute bags instead of plastic bags. Throwing of plastic bags by the roadside makesour surroundings dirty and unhygienic. In the same way, one should not spit out in such places. Making the laws stronger would ensure that people abide by them. They could be fined if they litter. Keeping stations clean is not the responsibility of administration alone.Passengers have always neglected the administration attempt to maintain sanitation by violating rules made for cleanliness. Hawkers on the railway platforms are a problem too.They sell food items; people eat and throw them on the platforms. This makes a great appeal to mosquitoes and flies. Ah, nice food at my footstep, the fly must be thinking! A crew of workers properly trained and equipped with modern cleaning tools should be appointed for each station. The cleaners and sweepers should regularly sweep and mop the floor of the bus stand or the railway station.Last but not the least, we should make people aware of cleaning the public places for better hygiene. As it is often said, drops of water make the ocean; we must all join together to keep our environment clean and green. This would do well to not only us but also the environment. A clean environment makes huge difference between life and death. Without the shadow of doubt, a cleaner environment is a greener Earth. You can’t change the past but you can change the future.
