TNIE reporter Mahima Anna Jacob meets some Malayali youngsters who are treading the ‘bizarre’ path.
With boots and gloves, they pick up soggy trash, water bottles, aluminium cans and muddy styrofoam boxes, part of a green activist campaign called the Cleanup Ambassadors.
Every other day, when I open the vernacular papers, they are full of news reports of youngsters, who losing their footing have slipped into the Ganga and drowned whilst taking a selfie.
If you’re unmarried, you’re probably familiar with the issue. It’s an age-old Indian issue — that of family members pressurising youngsters to get married.
According to Vuyyur police, the incident happened at around 4.30 am when the youngsters along with their relatives went to the river to perform a ritual.
