Benguluru, a city once known as city of gardens, as ‘Silicon Valley of India’, now dwells in huge pile of solid waste produced daily. With no proper waste management in place, open spaces and roadsides have become dumping zones.
MCI Bangalore with the Ugly India initiative, to spread in awareness and to contribute towards a cleaner city, kick started their weekend morning by cleaning garbage, refurbishing local area and establishing communication with local residents to be a helping hand in the initiative.
The Ugly Indian initiative works towards reviving Bengaluru from its mound of garbage and debris and bring back glory of one of the beautiful cities of India. The initiative says that we all are ugly Indians & only we can save us from ourselves.
