Translated from Marathi

In India, the MHADA (Maharashtra Housing Area and Development Authority) scheme was brought to better the slums. The Indian government through MHADA will provide renovations free of cost. Bringing the S.R.A. (Slum Rehabilitation Authority) to all areas is on-going. Because of this, slums should be made well and there should be no garbage. The Indian government is trying to achieve this scheme all over India. This is my dream.

Part 8 in the series “From the Eyes of a Girl”

Translated from Marathi

In India, people make very nice, large buildings. They are also colorful. Some buildings are like high-rise towers. I feel like I should just always look at them. The lift is glass and when you go up in it, it feels like you are going into the sky. People have made such wonderful facilities that I really like some parts of India. Everyone should have a lecture on cleanliness so that one day nature will be green and beautiful. That is my dream.

Translated from Marathi

The slums on the road do not have bathroom facilities. There is also no water. So the children of these homes go to the bathroom anywhere. Where they sit for bathroom, bacteria grow and people fall sick. Because of these sick people, healthy people also fall sick. The slums should stay on the road, but they should stay clean so that people do not fall sick. BMC staff should also take notice.



Pani-puri wala and the gutter & trash next to him

Translated from Marathi

Open food should not be eaten because the surrounding area is dirty. Insects sit on the food and the pain-puri wala’s hands are not clean and we eat that food. Indians make themselves sick on their own. After getting sick, they blame it on their luck for falling sick. So why blame luck? That’s why I want to tell Indians: don’t eat open food and waste your money.



Because of throwing cloth in the gutter, it gets clogged…

Part 5 in the series “From the Eyes of a Girl”

Translated from Marathi

In India there are so many garbage dumpsters, but even still, people throw cloth and plastic bags in gutters. Because of that water gets clogged in the gutters and the water overflows into homes. So homes become dirty and that leads to malaria, typhoid, and other illnesses that are contagious. Because of these contagious illnesses, babies die and people die. Thus I want to tell Indians that cloth and plastic bags are only to be thrown in the assigned dumpsters and not in the gutters. If everyone thinks like this, our country will be pure and clean.



Our drinking water pipe runs over the gutter

Translated from Marathi

If the drinking water pipeline runs over the gutter, the municipal corporation (BMC) should check daily to ensure it is clean. If the pipeline is leaking above the gutter, people should not throw garbage in the gutter. Otherwise the garbage pile can contaminate the drinking water and people can get jaundice. Suppose the pipeline is leaking, people should inform the BMC and so we would not get contaminated water and we would not fall sick.

In some places where houses are demolished, Indians should keep the area clean as new buildings are being built.
