Just recently, Akshay Kumar decided to appoint himself as one of Mumbai's civil guardian. The actor who is known for his blockbuster
films has decided to take personal action against social ignorance.
Tweeting about this Akshay says, "I'm going to start with an apology, I'm sorry for this negative message guys, its just that on days like today I cant stand
the ignorance of some people. On my way to work this morning this guy really frustrated me. I had to get out of my car in the middle of Bombay traffic right
by Mr. Bachchan's house, & literally pick up off the road an empty packet of cigarettes that this man decided to carelessly throw out his window without a
second thought. Not only do we have to put up with the fact he smokes but we also have to deal with the fact that he doesn't care a damn about his city or
his motherland that God has so graciously provided for him. If we all treated the streets of India with as much love as we do our homes & temples, we would
have 5 star ratings on cleanliness rather than being known as one of the dirtiest cities in the world."
He continued, "I'm no angel, I drive a car, I fly in planes, sometimes I accidentally leave the lights on, but I consciously try everyday not to dirty or
abuse our city. Question is do you? What's the worst thing you've ever done to our environment, something u walked away from that u wished deep down u hadn't
done? I know for sure the guy that littered in front of me today wont forget his actions. I must say I'm sorry for scaring him but don't abuse India's
streets & maybe they wont abuse you! Dont forget, let me know ur bad habits :) sometimes writing about them helps u confront & consciously strive to better
them. I cant help it i love my country, i just cant cant stand those who dont..."
We have to say, Akshay's plead is something that every Indian citizen should seriously think about.
