‘I-Clean’ Nagpur beautifies Baljagat

A cleanliness drive – I-Clean – was held in Nagpur’s Baljagat in Laxminagar area on Sunday morning, as per the initiative taken by its Secretary Jagdish Suklikar, who along with volunteers of I-Clean Nagpur, jointly cleaned and beautified the premises and walls of the institution engaged in the promoting art, culture, and sports amongst the youth of Nagpur.

Cabinet Member of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) Jaiprakash Gupta visited the spot and interacted with all members, explained them about Khadi, and the specially designed National Flag to celebrate ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ in the 75th year of our independence.

The participants painted attractive Warli designs on walls that spoke volumes about yoga, sporting activities, restrictions on single-use plastics and general cleanliness to create awareness about these important aspects in our daily life, in which the I-Clean group specialises. This is their 223rd spot in the region. 

The group has completed over seven years of their formation. They believe that the habit of cleanliness needs to be inculcated into the minds of our youth, right from an early and impressionable age.

It is the group’s thought that cleanliness is next to Godliness and a clean surrounding will automatically promote a healthy environment for all citizens. In a connected activity, the I-Clean team is also actively supporting the civic administration in implementing the much needed ban on single-use plastics. This message is being prominently painted on all their spots. The members undertake periodical drives to educate vendors and the common man about this menace, which causes damage to our environment, livestock and human life. 

Age is no barrier for this group. They have volunteers ranging from 10 to 65+ year olds who contribute in their own ways towards the cleanliness and beautification of our city. Members include persons from many vocations including students, housewives, children, CA, doctors, lawyers, business persons, IT professionals, retired persons, and others. Anyone with a sincere will to clean and beautify our city, is welcome to join this voluntary organisation. 

At least three to four new members join the group at each spot. Several people including children, who joined in the activity voluntarily, and also served refreshments and drinking water to all the participants. Earlier spots done by this team include various lakes of Nagpur, railway stations, bus stops, schools, colleges, old age homes, hospitals, Mokshadham, clubs, busy squares, hostels, remand homes, culverts, parking zones, police stations, and other places of public interest.

To fund their activities, each volunteer makes a minimum contribution of ₹50 every month. Some voluntary contributions are also received from citizens at each spot. It is the group’s vision that every city in India should have an I-Clean team and each citizen should follow the cleanliness regime.

I-Clean signifies the concept of ‘I’ before ‘You’ – ‘I should do it rather than asking you to do it.’ 

I-Clean has made an appeal to all like-minded people of Nagpur to join them in their zest for cleaning and beautifying the city. They have also requested residents to help maintain the cleanliness of the beautified spots by adopting proper methods of garbage disposal as also through continuous vigil.

A 12-year-old boy named Agranya Barapatre in Nagpur breathed his last after trying to imitate a video on YouTube at his neighbour’s place. The woman, in the video, is seen demonstrating how she escaped with her hands tied behind, gagged and face covered with scarves. He was found hanging from a wooden ladder’s stick on the neighbour’s terrace but there was no knot on the scarf. 

Upon inspection, it was learnt that Agranya had downloaded a video titled ‘Full face cover challenge’ in his phone. Cops said that there was no reason for the teenager to commit suicide but the possibility of an accident could not be ruled out.

Arangya’s mother said the couple had no clue where the scarf came from; he only carried a chakri and a kite. She also revealed that her son usually played on their neighbour’s terrace

Reportedly, Agranya was undergoing a psychiatric treatment as he was a hyperactive kid who wasn’t attentive in studies. He was good with using phones and application so his family tried to keep the phone away from him. However, he would somehow always locate the phone. 

Agranya, the only child to his parents, was supposed to be felicitated at his school on Thursday during Republic Day for securing second position at a double-lathi event at the third National Traditional Lathi Sports Championship in Indore.

Post the incident, he was rushed to Government Medical College but was declared dead. Sakkardara Police registered a case of accident death.
