A clean and green city has been the dream for every single Gurgaonite ever since they moved base to Gurgaon. But the dream has yet to become a reality. If one sees it like this, the glass is half empty. But the hopefuls would know that efforts have started in this direction, all thanks to the residents who have made it a personal issue to save the environment around them.
