Walkway along the Marina beach…

"Throw trash into the trashcans". That's the motto the Chennai Corporation have been trying to get into people's minds to make the Chennai a cleaner place. It sounds so simple. But the problem is there are no trashcans in public areas for people to effectively use them.
I was at Marina Beach a week back. I was walking along the pathway (just beside the main road) from almost the Lighthouse to Gandhi Statue (should be about 200-300 meters). I walked the entire stretch looking for a trashcan to dispose some trash. But I couldn't find one. This area is frequented by thousands of people each day for their morning and evening walking schedules and I was surprised to find that there were no trashcans in the entire stretch. I wish the administration took notice of this and take some steps to make Chennai a better place.
