Be soft

Change: Elders should talk in a nice manner
Why: I do not like it when an elder talks to me rudely. If anyone wants to explain something, he/she should speak in a proper way. This would also help me understand the person’s point of view.

Fight graft

Ban plastic bags

Change: Stop using polybags

Chat options

Change: More free periods
