Bengaluru is an ever expanding urban zone where the combined apathy of government agencies and citizens towards city planning and maintaining, has resulted in the city that does not invoke pride.
This essentially means that it has been left up to the few citizen’s conscience to take up in their hands matters such as the routine clean-up of the city like picking, transporting and disposal of garbage, waste segregation, providing basic utilities to the public like garbage bins, public toilets to stop people from littering the streets and defecating in public.
However the glimmer of hope is being provided by its 9.5 million population with 87% literacy rate. Various “Bengaluru Rising” forums are working in various capacities to involve the citizens , draw govt’s attention and create self-help groups etc. to ease the situation.
But still its less than 2% of public who are socially active.
My Place of Pride INTENDS TO CHANGE THAT !
