Social media has emerged as a great tool for personalities, prominent public figures to interact with their fans. While it has its detrimental effects too, as Shane Watson- former Australian all-rounder- found out in the past ten days when both his Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked. But, more-often-than-not, social media has proved to be a great cohesive force as far as public figures and their fans are concerned.

Apart from posting their regular stuff, interacting with fans, celebrities also use social media for spreading awareness on social causes. In the past, we have seen the likes of former Indian batsman and the ‘God of Cricket’ post numerous videos on his Twitter handle where he can be seen urging the common people to use a helmet while driving their respective vehicle.

The superstar duo of  Indian captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood star Anushka Sharma have also shared a lot of videos- some rather controversial in the past where the duo can be seen schooling people about not littering the roads with trash.

“Make them understand” – Kuldeep Yadav

Recently, another video has surfaced on social media where Indian wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav can be seen urging people to avoid the use of plastic bags. Kuldeep went on to admit the stark difference between the attitude towards such causes between the Indians and the foreigners.

According to Kuldeep, the basic difference is that Indians take these things casually, and that attitude of not listening to others is the prime cause of why we have not been able to bring about the change despite boasting of such a large population.

“Try to avoid plastic, you know. Whenever I travel abroad, playing the games away, I see the basic difference between them and our country is people follow basic principles there and avoid using plastics. If people are listening…which I am sure most of them are not because no likes to listen to in India, but my major objective is to make them understand that it is a critical time for us and everyone.”

“If you can be a bit serious, then I am sure there will be a great change. Other countries do not have the population that we have but their attitude is what makes the difference. Bring some changes in your attitude because I’m sure no one cares in India.” Kuldeep Yadav said in an event as quoted by Hindustan Times.

Meanwhile, Kuldeep is currently warming the bench and is likely to continue doing that in the third and final Test against South Africa in Ranchi.
