Moodubelle, 28 Jun 2012: There is no greater irony than the coexistence of  noble slogans under the Complete Cleanliness Drive “Swachhathakke kare, Neenagu dore” and “Nairmalyave Sampatthu, Swachhatheye Samruddhi..” and heaps of rotting garbage nearby, that too very close to the Belle Grama Panchayat office on the Santekatte.


With the onset of monsoon, the un-cleared garbage is posing a great danger of monsoon related diseases such as malaria, dengue, chikengunia, cholera and viral fever.  It is surprising that in spite of  the location of the Balawadi very close to the place where the garbage has been dumped, why the Panchayat authorities are so callous as not to clear the garbage and provide a cleaner environment to the children and villagers. The fish market in the proximity of the garbage dump has become quite unhygienic as flies that feast on the garbage also have a taste of raw fish thus passing on the bacteria and virus from the garbage to the fish which in turn is consumed by humans.



When this reporters contacted the President of the Belle Grama Panchayat about the un-cleared garbage, she  expressed her helplessness  saying that she has  asked the workers to clear the garbage some days back. However, the workers are yet to respond. It is said that the workers  do not know where to dump the garbage once it is cleared from the Santhekatte.  It seems that there is lack of seriousness about the civic problems. No one knows where to dump the garbage.

It is said that one man s gain is another man s loss and vice versa. When you clean one dump yard, there should be another dump yard to take it. With numerous NGOs fighting against different types of pollutions (air, water, sound, soil etc.) one should be on guard even when breaking the wind! Until a permanent dumping ground is found and approved by everyone (I mean everyone without leaving a soul to avoid bundhs by the NGOs), the garbage should be transported to Udupi municipal dumping ground using hired garbage collection trucks and labourers. Do you have any other better suggestions?

Can Anyone tell our readers is it the same garbage dump area which was located in front of the Belle Primary school and now promoted to Belle Santeykatte? Or we still existing old garbage in front of the primary school? This itself says how dirty our local leaders and panchayat office bearers. They live in same garbage premise.

Chosen by the people, for the people are busy posing for the photographs. Posing for planting a tree is easy. Ask them to pose to remove the garbage also.

Disgusting!!!!! Is the only word for this fiasco? Who to blame, nobody knows! That's how the people concerned answer. Not acceptable by any standard to anyone at all. We are proud of our Moodubelle but projecting all good things to everyone concerned but missing out on the basic thing which is cleanliness especially when you have all the important places like school, college, clinics, the fish market, restaurants etc. If the Belle Panchayat doesn't know where to dump it then everyone would know how capable their administration is¦ All said and done, this sort of attitude will not help for an upcoming and important town like Moodubelle?

Where are those smiling faces who are standing with stunning pose in front of the camera? Anil you should also pull them here make them stand on the Garbage and click the pictures. Forget about big projects my dear leaders, try to provide very very basic necessities to your own villagers.

It is a BIG SHAME to MP, MLA, Belle Panchayath and every living personality of Moodubelle!! Including me! Do we need to go around blaming any political party? Collect the garbage and incinerate it! It may cost max few (2 to 5) thousand Rs!! But we need a permanent solution for handling garbage for tomorrow's garbage generated! I am willing to participate and support if any system is proposed!!
