Ever since I retired I go for walks every morning. For a long time now, I've been noticing my neighbour's young son cleaning up the garbage in our lane all by himself. I couldn't understand why at first. Then one day I asked. The answer left me ashamed. The young boy had heard from somewhere that his favourite cricket star, Virat Kohli would be coming to town that month and he wanted to play a game of cricket in that lane with the star. He told me that he didn't want Kohli to see all the garbage. The boy opened my eyes and I immediately appealed to the local RWA. Now we have these specialized garbage collectors picking up all the trash from our locality every day. Thanks to the young boy it has become a clean and happy place again.
