‘CIVIC SENSE’ – FAILS TO HIT THE SPOTLIGHT

Bangalore  is  a  beautiful  contemporary  city  that marries glitz with tradition. Though the population of the city prides itself in being educated and literate, what people here sorely lack is civic sense. These days, it is almost impractical to walk on the side roads not having to dodge potholes and dog faeces. I mean, the major cause of traffic that piles up in the city is because of cows and buffalos making themselves at home on the middle of the road while their owners are not at all bothered about the raging situation. There is not a single area in the city which can be even closely associated  with  the  word,  ‘Hygienic’…  the  elevators  for example, it is absolutely impossible to travel in one without having to notice the extremely filthy red paan stains on the sides. And what’s worse, the noxious fumes coming out of the unauthorised garbage dumps all around the city. It is sad to know that a major chunk of literate people contribute to disposing of garbage in public areas in the city. Why is it that we as Indians have such poor civic sense? Why is it that we do  not consider  public  property as  belonging to all  of  us, rather than to none of us? We do not have the patience to stop at the bins, disembark from our vehicles and put the garbage inside the metal bins through the openings provided. We try our luck with our aims and most of the time the garbage bags hit the bin and end up beside it. Civic sense, or rather the lack of it, is a matter of grave concern as most of us do not care much for it. This attitude is prevalent across all sections of society. (more…)
