A Twitter profile, ‘MumbaiMatterz,’ shared a panoramic video of Mumbai’s Mahim beach, which is shocking.

The now-viral clip shows the famous beach turned into a giant garbage dump after tonnes of plastic waste washed ashore. In the video, people are seen standing amidst the dirt. While some are seen clicking selfies, others are seen enjoying the breeze.

The clip is now viral

The caption of the post read, “Beaches in Mumbai now open. Citizens throng Mahim beach to have a look at the #ReturnGift from the Arabian Sea…”

Watch the video below:

Despite massive campaigns, clean-up drives, awareness camps, and several warnings, Mumbaikars have failed to protect their beaches, they continue to throw garbage in the sea, and the overcrowded sea can’t help but return it.

Twitterati reacts

Since being shared, the video has accumulated more than 95,000 views. For obvious reasons, the clip received numerous angry and concerned reactions too.

There were many users who demanded strict rules to be made against plastic pollution in the city while others asked for a hefty fine to be slapped on those breaking the rules.

A day after the post gained traction, the official account of Ward-GN of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation shared a follow-up on Mumbaimatterz’s post. It showed how concerned authorities conducted a clean-up drive and cleared the dirt that was gathered on the famous beach. They shared before and after images of the Mahim beach.
