There is something more we can do than just salute the flag on 15th August
We could participate in I-Day Trash Dash.
It will be fun to scramble through Borivali’s Sanjay Gandhi National Park, s gathering as much rubbish as possible. The trail, which covers the Gandhi Smarak, recreational area, mini-train station and administration area, is dotted with picnic games and activities, adding to the competition. The teams that complete the trail and are found to have the heaviest bags of garbage walk away with prizes and as municipal trucks pick up the collection, everyone leaves a cleaner park behind.
This Independence Day, the Natura Outdoor Education Trust (NOET) will be inviting Mumbai-ites to the 3rd I-Day Trash Dash– a crazy marathon cum clean-up drive, through the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivali
Most of the Mumbaite know about NOET (The Natura Outdoor Education Trust) which is a not-for-profit organisation that uses the wilderness and adventure as tools to promote learning, development and ecological conservation.
It is amazing how they draw people - young and old - into the magic of the wilderness, the true ‘Outdoors’, and challenge them with experiences that dramatically reveal amazing insights and offer fresh perspectives to enrich their lives beyond compare.
I am sure it will be more fun than visiting Malls with family and friends and emptying pockets while returning back.
The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),
.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
