Can India be free of single-use plastics by 2022?

Plastic is both a miracle and a curse for the modern world; miracle owing to its far-reaching usage and its strength and adaptability and curse because of the fact that those long polymer chains that make plastic so indispensable also render it nondegradable. Truly the world is full of ironies; take the case of single-use plastics, for example, we use single-use plastics for maybe a few hours at most but they remain on the earth's surface for hundreds of years before disappearing from the face of the planet.
