This blogpost is nothing but a request...its a cry to tell you people reading this that "WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE" and only "WE" can make a difference...We in India see soo much happening around us that we have become stones and stones that are unmoved by anything.

My Personal Favorite : India is known for the spit stains lined up on the walls in our streets just as much as we are known for our cultural or ethnic diversity. We see people spitting all around us and all we can do is ignore them. WHY? WHY?

What happened to our voice...what happened to the fact that we can make a difference...All we have to do is stop people from spitting...you dont need to shout...you dont need to abuse...all u need to do is ask him "would you do this in your house"...social embarassesment in India is the way to make a difference.

We need to believe that we can make a difference...we can...its just that we think that small differences dont count...a person thinking about what you said the next time he is about to spit is a difference...

So please lets not be heartless...we are looking at India being an International hub...so lets make sure that atleast our house is neat and clean...and i dont think that this is something too much to ask for...Give your country or city something in return for what its made you...

To wrap it up...even though its a cliche

Ask What You Can Do For The Country"

Well....spitting peeing n so on...well...The kind of "men" who do it in streets are not the kind u can convince either way. Because if they had that much sense they wudnt do it in the 1st place. Either they wud answer u back to mind ur own business....or they wud just do it else whr....
