I, Ms. XYZ, am a resident from Goregaon West and a responsible citizen living in Mumbai. With the above-mentioned subject, I would like to draw your attention to the state of pollution in Mumbai. It is been observed in different forms and is everywhere. The worst thing about it is, that it is spreading uncontrollably.
There are a handful of citizens that take proper precautions like segregate the wet waste and the dry waste, make use of public transportation services whenever possible and avoid using plastic bags. However, their efforts drench in vain because a maximum population belonging to this metropolitan city fails to understand the severity of the situation. It might be due to the busy and rash lives citizens live or maybe due to inadequate awareness and knowledge.
Trash bins are present where four streets meet but not in some interior areas. Due to this, people living in the interior areas deposit waste from their respective homes openly on the streets. Places, where trash bins are available, are not cleared or picked up on a regular basis. The waste piles up and this influences the breeding of mosquitoes and eventually, to diseases.
Instances like the burning of plastic, dry leaves or rubber tires have also been observed. It is a humble request to prepare an awareness chart about the same so that masses can estimate the severity of the problem we’re facing or are about to face.
