We should ensure that others do not get affected by our irresponsible actions.Once I happened to see a girl throwing a plastic cover to the road from a running bus. Within a few seconds I heard a banging sound from the side of the bus. On peeping out, I saw that a two wheeler had crashed against a car as the plastic cover thrown by that lady flew and stuck on the face of the two wheeler driver (unfortunately he was not wearing helmet also). The two wheeler driver had fallen down on the road but by luck he was neither injured nor was hit by other passing vehicles. This girl was neither a child nor was she uneducated. Her simple action affected many people.
In many places, people doing some alteration or construction works heap the stones, sand etc. on the roadside without bothering about other vehicles and passersby.
During rainy season I see many people releasing the water to the road without bothering about others. They throw waste items on the road without bothering about the blockade of drainage. During the last cyclone in Chennai, I saw a person in an outskirt area throwing an old bed torn into pieces out of his house and the same blocked the side canal through which the rain water was to drain.
Spitting on the road without caring for others who are also walking along with them, throwing the waste to the road directly from upstairs etc are almost regular sights.
The only thing we can and must do is to correct ourselves and then only ask government for anything. Without doing anything from our side and expecting from government side is not at all correct in any manner.
