Beachfinds

It was coastal cleanup day on Saturday.  Once a year after the Ganesha Immersion we take our students to Akshe Beach to do their little bit for the environment.  I mostly just document our students so those pictures are not for public broadcast.  However I make a point of wandering off for a little bit to get some location shots.  Here are a few of them:

It really is a lovely beach, at least it would be if it were cleaner. 

Alas this is a fairly common sight but there is beauty everywhere and  it's always the idols that catch my eye.

You've wonderfully raised the concern - I am from a different part of India and I see every year the water of the rivers are polluted from immersion of the clay idols after Durgapuja.

We need to take this environmental pollution with a pinch. How I wish the money can be spent wisely for a good cause.

If only all were collectively responsible.

Hopefully the above shown condition changes sooner.It only improves if we all keep this in our mind.
Thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention.

Wish the cultural values had some blend of common sense in it.

I don't kid myself that a few hours on a Saturday morning once a year has any measurable physical impact. I only hope that the students participating start to measure and be responsible for their own actions.
