If you want to do something you do not require many resources for that. You need a strong will to do the work and you can achieve many things. You need to start doing rather then thinking. You have read the similar things in Women Empowerment and Village Ways. Today I am going to tell you the story of 85 year’s old Narayani Devi. Many environmentalist,scientist, social activist are still figuring out the ways to fight the plastic menace, Narayani Devi 85 year’s old illiterate resident of a village Thureti 10 k.m from Nainbagh and 50 K.M from Mussoorie has found a novel way of getting rid of unwanted plastic. She collected the plastic bags from around the area and began weaving a carpet (Chatai) for herself made of plastic ropes. Few years ago sitting in her lawns was disgusted with the unwanted plastic which was destroying the environment in the area and seeing that nothing was been done took to task of weaving fine colourful carpet for herself. She said, “I collect whatever plastic I can lay my hands to and convert into fine rope for the carpet”.
