Beach clean-up drive – Year after year, after the auspicious Ganpati Visarjan, the beaches of Mumbai are left in a rotten state, swarming with waste from the day before. As a small gesture of help, the Rotaract Club of Podar College, along with our parent organisation, the Rotary Club of Mumbai North End, spend the morning of the 11th day of the festival at Juhu Beach doing what little we can to make and impact in the society. Core and BOD members along with volunteers from both clubs gathered at the beach and spent the morning segregating waste and trying to get rid of any plastic from the sand. The idols stranded on the beach were piled up for a truck to come and collect them. The experience from extremely humbling yet it was disappointing to catch sight of the beach defaced after a day filled with excitement, joy and merriment.
