In today’s world, when no one thinks twice before littering one’s surroundings, Pranjal Dubey, a young school-goer, did something that should set an example in front of all of us.
He was just another daily commuter travelling by the Delhi Metro, but what made him different from the others, was his sense of responsibility.
Pranjal was carrying food in his bag that mistakenly fell on the floor of the metro compartment. It was expected that the food would remain on the floor for the entire day. But what followed next would come as an inspiration to many.
Pranjal put the tiffin box inside and then tore off a sheet of paper from his notebook to clean up the entire mess inside the compartment.
Most of us do not care about waste after it is discarded from our possession. We live in an era where people throw garbage on the streets without thinking of the inconvenience it will create. But Pranjal had the humility in him to pick up his food to throw it later.
This was a welcome gesture from the side of a young boy. Pranjal had rightfully realised that instead of complaining about the conditions of public transport, it is important for all of us to share the responsibility to keep it clean and in a usable condition.
The New Delhi Metro was witness to something which should be a part of our daily value systems but has completely eroded from our habits now – hence the dire need to applaud the actions of this youngster arises.
The Logical Indian community applauds Pranjal for showcasing his sense of responsibility and civic sense in the best possible way. We sincerely need many more individuals like him.
