SETC you suck.

Early Monday Morning , I am rushing towards the stationary G3 at Hosa Road when a bunch of orange peels were hurled near my feet from left side. I searched for the person who threw that to me and #LEH… the same bus. #SETC !!!

2 months back when me and my friend were returning from Jayanagar, at the same Hosa Road junction we encountered a man running down from a bus towards the barricades placed near the Service road. I was surprised. #LEH all i saw was that man taking a leak relaxfully with the SETC bus conductor occasionally whistling to finish his job faster.

Not just this, I can count innumerable encounters like this where the primary targets of polluting the garden city is passengers of SETC. Fuck you assholes. Eat whatever you want. Drink whatever you wish for. But please stop polluting Bangalore.

The main reason why entire Bangalorean community hates immigrants is for the same purpose. Most of them do not have any issues if they come and make Bangalore as their primary habitat. But the problem arises when you think that this is not my own state to keep it clean. Then why bother whether the trash has to be safely disposed or not.

Main reason why people do this is “We never think we belong to India”. We are united by constitution but heavily divided emotionally. Linguistic divisions further add up to much more confusion and irritation. Amidst all this, people forget that they are dirtying their own country. Ask any onsite returned guy “What do you feel about India”. You can immediately get that disgusting look on his face. But let me remind you, he is the same guy who does the following:

  1. Not responding to the garbage/waste management rules laid by the Municipality
  2. No responsibility towards his own surroundings
  3. Behaves like an NRI only when he is amidst the elite atmosphere. Let me tell you friends, I find it really strange that he becomes so conscious of throwing a tiny chocolate wrapper when he is inside an MNC/say a 5 star hotel. But he is the same person who throws the vegetable peels on the roads/orange peels on the roads when he is not in the corporate atmosphere. Why is this bipolar syndrome?

Azim Premji once said in a corporate event that the next time you find someone polluting the nearby surroundings by irresponsibly throwing the waste, make sure that you throw the waste on his face. Irrespective of what his/her reaction may be we all must do something as grave as what Mr.Premji has said. Once we start doing this, people will learn eventually that dumping waste should be done with good care.

The above picture is so apt for the current scenario. Let all of us be responsible towards our surroundings. Next time you sit in a bus, make sure you stop behaving like a hooligan and act maturely. The next time you find some conductor encouraging people to pollute please give him a good lecture and let him know that he is not doing the right thing.

  1. Love the depiction in the picture of trees -world without us one..
    Now the message is clear the people around . I have once blogged about problems I have with spitting on road polluting the city by various mean. I’m with u totally in conveying this message .
    But I still remember in my office people used to spit in the washroom urinal section even though it was clearly written do not spit chewing gums. What do u call them ? Educated illiterates?? Men are from mars but there are some morons from mars too .. Irrespective of region they belong to I believe they should think about cleanliness ..

    1. hahahaha. yes. ugiyoke spittoons itru tevlu. EC li S1 tower alli lift alli jarda ugdidare en heltira idikke ROFL 🙂 Women are no less than the morons from Mars.

      Sanitary Disposal na heng beko hange esdu hogtare. Poor Janitors have to pick it up in their hands and clean it. I once asked a girl to clean the dirt she had done and her expression was “neen en nange helodu” types. 😦

  2. But why the SETC sucks? I mean I get it, the conductor encouraged public urination. SETC maybe bringing in migrants, maybe I am not sure because I do not live in Bangalore.

    People throw thrash. Let it be migrants or the locals, the irresponsible ones do it. SETC is not bad. The people are.

    1. SETC recently got badly bashed by the public in Hosa Road Junction. Reason: Blocking Traffic by parking in the middle of the road. not just this, if you are a Bangalorean you would understand the horror these SETC guys do. There is a team called Bangalore Rising which beautifies the city by painting murals and these Amma followers go and stick her posters. Localites are conscious and help beautification of city. But immigrants are the ones who pollute. Best examples are places like Madiwala, Hosa Road, Kalasipalya. Google it yourself and see who are the majority of the population there. All are people who think Bangalore is not their city and they can pollute it.

      1. ha ha…last week the public bashed two bus drivers for blocking traffic as long as 3 km stretch just because they wanted more passengers to board their bus.
