China gives examples of Indian cities in pictorial ads to warn its citizens against increasing pollution level
As they say, "when you accept fallibility within yourself you become more perfect," but, China - the world's largest carbon emitter, does not seems to understand this. In a very childish and unrealistic approach, the country has placed some so-called ads at public places, depicting the environmental issues some Indian cities like Mumbai and Allahabad are facing to warn its people against the increasing pollution in the country.

While the posters are put up showing the impact of climate change, it tells people to plan a pollution free future. The Chinese posters further say to its citizens that if they would fail to take effective measures, their city will become polluted like Indian cities.

Advertisements ensuring pictures of Mumbai and Allahabad among others have been accommodated along the streets and at public places like Wangfujing city center zone, in an effort to grab public attention towards consequences of pollution.

China is putting all efforts to lessen its vast carbon emissions. While it is planning to decrease the unfavorable effect on its economy, it highlighted the issues of plastic junk, dust storm in Indian towns in its awareness campaign. Besides, the country also suggested some quick fix to tackle the environmental shortcomings.

While one of its ads posed question on the hurdle kids go through in the entertainment city Mumbai because of the lack of playgrounds due to huge plastic garbage, another picture talks about the dirt in the holy city of Allahabad.

"The beaches in Mumbai were covered in plastic garbage, teenagers, eager to release energy of youth, had no choice but to play cricket in the garbage heap," reads one of the ads, having an image of a boy playing cricket on heap of garbage at a beach, as per a report in Outlook.

"On July 12, 2015, the city of Allahabad in India was hit by sandstorms, the resulting low visibility made it impossible for pedestrian to see each others in the sand," says a poster while talking about the concept of low carbon development.

The message was put up in English as well as in Chinese language. Though, India is not the only country that the neighboring country has targeted, but shouldn't the China have come up with some more effective practical approach instead of pointing out at other countries' flaws on such an issue which is highly prevalent within its own territory?
