  1. I am seeing a birth of a massive movement in india. This is a good sign for our country. This reminds me of ‘vanamahotsava’ campaign during my childhood. It left a lasting impression on my generation and helped in controlling deforestation problem. Same way, swatcha bhaaratha will change our country for better. These monks deserve a round of applause for their service.

    By the way , I don’t see any white shirt group here. Oh never mind – they were too busy taking selfies and causing inconvenience to passengers right outside airport!!! They are only interested in 2000 koti rupaayees, not the actual work.

  2. “This reminds me of vanamahotsava campaign during my childhood” – Yumreeki Tooth Shakera

    Poor chap! The fellow is STILL in childhood even now! Moreover, he used to plant some Gherkins and beans in his backyard….. for his naalige chappala and THAT reminds him of his ‘childhood’. Ahem!
