Noble cleanup cause

Posted by: 2016-05-07 06:23:06 , By Mr. Raj Kumar

In September 2015, the people of Moti Mohalla village on Srinagar's iconic Dal Lake, were asked something they had never been asked before. What changes would they like to see around them? The majority replied unhesitatingly that the dirt and weeds suffocating all life within Dal Lake was something that bothered them. On hearing this, the folks from Goonj who had been working there since the 2014 floods asked if the community would like to clean the lake themselves instead of depending on anyone else to do the job. Over 300 villagers braved the cold and fog and contributed two days of labour each and 130 shikaras carried the weeds and waste from the lake to the banks where it was used as compost and cattle feed. Every volunteer was given a household kit containing warm clothes and blankets to ward off the coming winter chill. And over one lakh square metres of the lake was cleaned without a single rupee exchanging hands.
