“Oh! This country is so dirty. Why do citizens living in this country don’t respond to it?” Yes, this can be the thought of tourists visiting your country. Making your country prevail through all times is one of the crucial role played by the citizens who are responsible for their country’s development. It doesn’t require big initiatives instead small contributions at the basic level would count. Some of them are listed below.
1. Stop Littering Around
Everybody keeps their homes neat and clean but nobody thinks about their surroundings. This mentality needs to be changed and people should be made more aware about cleanliness. Throwing garbage in the dustbin, not throwing plastics in the sewers, not spitting here and there are some of the contributions which can be done by the citizens at the basic level.
2. Donate Blood
There are various accidents happening around and people die due to blood loss too. If people are aware of donating blood at Blood Banks so that precious lives can be saved. There are several camps all over the country where citizens can easily donate blood. The most negative point which demotivates people from donating blood is the rumours about health related problems caused by donating blood.
3. Plant Trees
With the increase in the level of pollution all over the world, ruining the earth’s climate and causing global warming. The only solution for this problem is planting trees. Using eco-friendly materials and not wasting resources like electricity, water, etc. Using renewable resources and following 3 R principle: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle can immensely prevent pollution on a large scale, but these steps are taken at basic levels like using a jute bag instead of plastic bags for shopping. Generate awareness about planting trees and not cutting them down.
4. Say No to Corruption
It is the evilest part which slowly eats the country and its people. It can be one of the greatest reason for economy hits. Not only it depletes the resources but also makes injustice for the citizens of the country. Although countries have taken steps to abolish corruption but it is still highly practiced. As a citizen, we must stop bribing and help the officials in removing the corruption from its roots.
5. Give your Vote
Voting is the basic process of electing a leader. If the leader is good then the growth of the country is promised. Whenever the elections are around the corner, urban societies don’t even bother to give their vote. By voting, you express your ideas or thoughts to the government and has a direct impact on selecting new leaders, so move out and give your vote.
6. Good Manners and Moral Behavior
We all have been taught good manners and how to behave at our homes but what about common sense? Expressing your gratitude towards the kindness shown by others, helping people in need are some of the acts which show good moral behaviors. Helping others is a positive act which not only improves the other person’s condition but also encourages him to further help other people.
These actions done at your basic level will definitely make the difference which may seem insignificant at first but collectively it matters a lot. So watch out for people help in need and make your country a better place for others.
