Clean India: Green India Should Be Our Dream India

“Cleanliness is Godliness” is the mantra of Mahatma Gandhi ji, Father of the

Nation. He demonstrated, propagated and insisted for individual and community

cleanliness throughout his life. 

Cleanliness is a habit which is very necessary to all of us. Cleanliness is a habit of keeping ourselves physically and mentally clean including our home, pet animals, surroundings, environment, pond, river, schools, etc. We should keep ourselves neat, clean and well-dressed all time. It helps in making a good personality and impression in the society as it reflects a clean character. We should maintain the environment and natural resources (water, food, land, etc) clean together with our body cleanliness in order to make the possibility of life existence forever on the earth.

Mahatma Gandhi had a revolutionary vision about making India clean. Swachhata Mission is integrated with Swachh Bharat Abhiyan towards realizing this laudable vision. To fulfil Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of a clean and hygienic India. Shri  Narendra  Modi  himself  initiated the cleanliness drive. Picking up the broom to clean the dirt, making Swachh Bharat Abhiyan a mass movement across the nation, the Prime Minister said people should neither litter, nor let others litter. He gave the mantra of ‘Na gandagi karenge, Na karne denge’.

Cleanliness makes us healthy in every aspect like mental, physical, social and intellectual. Generally, we have been noticing in our homes that our grandmothers and mothers are very strict about the cleanliness before worship, it is not another thing, they just try to make cleanliness our habit. But they follow wrong way as they never describe us the benefits and purpose of cleanliness. Every parent should logically describe and discuss with their kids about the benefits, purpose, necessity, etc of cleanliness. They must tell us that cleanliness is the first and foremost thing in our lives like food and water.
