Hey Guys!

Before continuing with my last week’s story, I wanna say, “May Phillip Hughes’ soul Rest in Peace”. He was one of my favourites. My heart sank when I read: “63 not out Forever”. #RIP Phillip Hughes.

Now, back to the incident. I hope you guys remember what I asked the sweeper last week; whether he would join the Swaccha Bharat drive with us or not. As I and VJ were waiting for his reply, meanwhile, I took his broom to pose with it and clicked a few selfies.

Then I heard a voice which sounded very familiar, but I didn’t want to hear. It was Sharma Sir, who also happens to be Tanya’s uncle and my professor, and I top his black list.“Oh look whom I ran into!?” said he. “Good morning, Sharma Sir,” I said. “Good afternoon, Akash. I see your mornings are still our afternoons,” said he. And VJ pipped in, “And I thought we are the only ones suffering from his time warp.”
“Though you are poor in academics, but I didn’t know you’ll be seen sweeping roads. Nevertheless, you seem to be good at it. Keep it up! Tanya will be so happy when she’ll hear about your new venture,” Sharma sir said. Dude, what is his problem? I thanked him and told what we are actually doing. He was as quiet as a falling leaf and went with the wind.

And so, we walked towards the office with the sweeper as he nodded yes. After a while, boss instructed us to kick-start the cleaning and to cajole more people. I was checking the things I need: Gloves- check, hand sanitizer- check, wet tissues- check, cap- check, mouth cover- check. No, not mouth cover. If I’ll cover my face, how girls will get impressed with me. “Brains- uncheck,” said VJ. “Aw! VJ if you have forgotten yours at home, you can borrow mine a little. Even 1% of my brain will do wonders for you,” I laughed. “Right! Another sequel of Dumb and Dumber will be made with you two,” said Riya.

While we were at our task, a guy tried to eve-tease Riya. I instantly rushed, but she had already gotten rid of the pervert. I asked if she is alright. She said, “People should first treat the inside squalor before picking up a few wrappers from roads.” I totally agree.

“This reminds me of Navin Tyagi from Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha. That great soul who said capris and mobiles should be banned for girls and is demanding for calling item girls, prostitutes. Such people, who think women are puppets who can be controlled and patronized whenever they want to, should be first swept away with other garbage,” said VJ. “You know, there should be a separate trash can for such people and they should be compelled to discard such loathsome mindset,” I said.
And yes, this is what should happen. If men are really from Mars, then the disgusting lot should be sent off there with a single blow of jhadu. Waha jaa kar jiske mobiles aur capris ban karna hai kare, yaha apni zubaan chalana ban kare. In fact, they should be called dufuse, nincompoops and dimwits.

BTW, the area in front of my office is squeaky clean after the hardwork of a week. Our next target is the park in the area. And you guys, don’t just sit and read my entries. Get up and make your vicinity clean.

Cya all!!
