All the alcoholics who love to visit Goa, here’s a piece of good news for you all. Now you can get beers for free, but you guys will have to do a small thing. Just pick up 10 beer bottle caps or 20 used cigarette butts and you can get a beer for free. So, this is an initiative called a waste-bar started by Drishti Marine, a private beach management agency roped in by the state tourism ministry. This initiative has been started so that the Goa beach is clean. TV actor Karanvir Bohra took to Twitter to encourage people to be a part of this initiative.
We contacted KV and asked him to share his thoughts on this initiative. He said, “I am a teetotaler myself, I am non-alcoholic, but in Goa, it’s all about beaches and beers. The initiative that has been taken is very radical and out of the box, whatever it takes for people to realise their responsibility it is very important. On a normal note I would not encourage this, but then it’s a good initiative, this will surely help a lot of people especially the locals out there. This way people will not only get to drink, but they will help the environment as well and no doubt environment should be our first priority, helping Mother Nature is very important.”
When asked if the government should take any of such initiatives in Mumbai and other parts of the country, he said, “Government is doing their bit, it is we who need to do a bit and we are not doing our bit. This year only I am sure people will start realizing that if you are drinking or doing any kind of stuff don’t litter, don’t throw garbage, keep your beaches clean. In Mumbai, the initiative (to clean beaches) has already been taken. Afroz Shah (Environmental Organizer) is doing a phenomenal initiative. We have cleaned the entire Versova beach, I have been a part with him for the past two years. We are cleaning the Dana Pani beach and we are starting the Mithi River clean as well. So, there’s no bigger initiative than that there’s no vested interest just love for the environment.”
Karanvir Bohra was last seen in Bigg Boss season 12 and was the 4th
runner up on the show. He impressed his fans a lot with his stint in the Bigg Boss house.
