My Dearest fellas,

Really feel awesome to learn that we still have a huge hearted nature loving people around us. We have a wonderful coastline to pride yet we disregard Mother Nature of her pristine beauty. Its not that we keep coming back to clean up, instead we must inculcate the habit of discipline amongst our brethen who has highest disregard for the society. Its really painful to see such a lovely city being reduced to a garbage yard every day. People throw, spit, urinate and do everything a person should never do in public. We boast of rich culture but we lack utter discipline be it in mind or in action. I request every parent to ensure that their offsprings inherit the best of social culture and we must hand over a more beautiful planet to the future.
