Cleanliness is the art of keeping your intellect, body, home, and environment spotless. We should make cleanliness our routine work as cleansing our body and mind is crucial for good mental and physical health. The cleanliness of our neighborhood and surroundings is significant for social health. It is not other’s duty instead it’s our self-duty to have a hygienic living as lack of cleanliness may result in various types of illness and disease and make a breeding place for mosquitoes and flies. Basic cleanliness begins from our hygiene to begin with we should begin by washing our hands by preventing entry of bacteria and germs away.
We should never compromise with cleanliness as it is important as food and water for us. Mahatma Gandhi once said, “I won’t let anyone rehearse my mind with their dirty feet.”
With the movement spreading awareness, a way of responsibility has been evoked among the people through the Clean India Movement. Most of the citizens now becoming active participants in cleanliness activities across the state , the dream of a ‘Clean India’ once seen by Gandhi has begun to urge a shape.
The Prime Minister has helped spread the message of Swachh Bharat (Clean India) by urging people through his words & action. He administered a cleanliness drive in Varanasi also. He wielded a spade near River Ganga at Assi Ghat in Varanasi under the Clean India Mission. He was joined by an outsized group of local people that cooperated within the mission/ campaign. Alongside cleanliness, the significance of sanitation has simultaneously been addressed- the health problems that roughly half of the Indians families have to deal with due to lack of proper toilets in their homes; which now has led to 4.9 lakh community and public toilets in working order in urban India, while over 58 lakh household toilets have been constructed. Though many challenges remain, governments seeking to achieve the sustainable development goal of universal access to safe sanitation can emulate the success of India’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan/ Clean India Mission.
