In Hyderabad, we will see people cleaning the roads at the midnight. But the next day morning again the people will throw all the waste on the roads. This is not what a person who is having civic sense should do. House maybe your own but the roads are also yours. Your share of tax is there in building those roads. So you should feel that you have the responsibility of maintaining it neatly. Some improvement is seen these days. But still, there is a long way to go.
Keeping the surroundings clean and tidy is our own responsibility and we can't think somebody else will come and do that for you.

Even this challenging situation would ease
We want to keep our homes or places where we work clean and beautiful and it is a good habit indeed but we should not be careless about our surroundings like park, roads, bus stand etc which are used by other people also. I feel very bad when I see wrappers, plastic bags, papers and other litters on public places. Perhaps this is our stereotyped mindset that we never stop such people who make public places dirty and its reason is that we think that it is not My Duty rather it is the duty of other people to stop Garbage Spreaders.
