Public amenities are what people of a country own and use it jointly. For example, we walk on road, use electricity, public parks and grounds, hospital, libraries, government offices, etc. These are all built with public money that is from the taxes we pay. And the government is responsible for maintaining this property. But it does not mean that people have no role to play in this regard.
If the government is responsible for building and maintaining public property, it is the duty of people to help the government in maintaining it. It costs a lot of money to build or buy these things and our country is not so rich. Duty increases a little bit more. If we, the people of the country do not use these public amenities properly or we destroy them, it will not be easy to replace them, been seen that people use water and electricity lastly, they cause accidents by removing parts of railway and steal or damage bulbs and fans, from railway compartments.
We know India is a developing country and whenever such things occur, they slow down its progress. Hence, it is foolish to destroy public property because we are harming ourselves as well as the progress of the country. Destruction of public property is no solution of any problem. It only creates more of it.
As good citizens it is our duty to use the public property as carefully as we use our own things. Its misuse can cause inconvenience to everybody, including ourselves. We must develop a sense of cooperation in having a comfortable and happy civic life. We all must work together, contribute funds by paying taxes on time and have a sense of responsibility to preserve conveniences which exist for the benefit of all.
