It is quite amusing! They created a new job opportunity. A worker has been appointed only to shoo away people and fine them OFFICIALLY, if caught throwing waste. He just sits on the road through 8 am-4 pm. His area of management covers a radius of just about 10-15 metres. Well, we did hear of guards in general; here is a guard for the streets and trash! But a disclaimer – the urination problem in the same area is not under his jurisdiction!! He can only penalise for improper garbage disposal under Swachcha Bharat Abhiyaan. Anyway, it is funny how we need either people or God (or rather the images/idols, because even cleanliness is godliness otherwise!) to control our behaviour; sans them we are unruly creatures!
By the way, this person employed earns not less than Rs.20,000 per month! Isn’t this a unique job prospect? Indeed, consumerism drives the economy – can’t be more apparent. Buy more, dispose more and generate more employment!
