“Kachrapur” a Rap for Awareness on Garbage

The problem of garbage is not new. In today’s world one can find garbage everywhere, strewn all over the place. This has become one of the biggest issues in every country. It is a common sight in India to see piles of garbage strewn across the roads. We have all seen overflowing garbage bins, the trash lying around it and crows and stray dogs picking on the filth.

Some people blame the authorities, and then there are the ones who make an organized effort to clean it. However, a group of boys from the Saidpur slums of Patna, have come up with a unique idea to tackle this issue.
