Essay On A courtyard common to all will be swept by none.
A courtyard is an open space in front of a house. Some times a courtyard may be a common space to more than one house. In such a case the courtyard will not be swept by any one of the houses. So it always remains dirty and unclean.
The same is the situation with common places and public places. People will always try to keep their places clean. But they will never keep the public places clean. This is because they always have the feeling that common places do not belong to them. We always try to throw the dust on the streets and keep our house clean. But we are never worried about the cleanliness of our country. So any object of common use will be a place of neglect.
