Today my husband and I had gone to Giripul to offer prayers at the Shani Mandir there. After our prayers, we went down to sit by the Giri river and enjoy the view. My heart sank at the sight of the place that was full of litter. We both decided to clean up the area. We found a few empty sacks and collected the garbage. We then stuffed the sacks in our car and threw them in garbage bins when we reached Solan. As we were pressed for time, we could manage to clean only a small area. We came back home feeling quite satisfied and fulfilled. Next Saturday we plan to revisit the place with our children so that we clean up the area a little more.
Just as inner harmony is important, it is necessary to keep our environment clean too.
