Swachch Bhaarat is the program and campaign initiated by the prime minister Sri Narendra Modi on 2nd October, 2014. It was started to realize the dream of Mahatma Gandhi of Clean India. Gandhiji used to give a lot of importance and attention to cleanliness and hygiene. He wanted that all poor Indians learn about hygiene. India should become on par with the western countries in practising hygiene.
If all young and adult citizens keep their surroundings clean, then the diseases will not spread any more. Our house, our locality and country will look more beautiful. In the matter of cleanliness, waste disposal, waste recycling, and protection of ourselves we are much behind the western countries.
If we maintain India clean in villages, slums and crowded areas, the money spent on diseases, medicines and hospitals will be saved for the benefit of home and for the nation. Actually cleanliness is the social responsibility of every citizen and resident. It will improve the financial status of the government too.
Clean India campaign will spread the awareness of ways of maintaining cleanliness among the poor and the careless. Now onwards let us be committed to "we don't pollute/litter, nor we will allow any one to litter". It is surprisingly as simple as 2 hours per week for each person. So it is affordable.
For making India clean, we have to arrange dust bins (waste boxes) every street corner. We have to build a number of toilets in villages where they are not available still. We have to see that they are emptied regularly. Municipal and panchayats play very important role in this. Schools too should take so that children do not fall sick and children learn the best practices.
Clean India campaign will be successful only if it becomes a human chain at all levels in each town and village. The TV, newspapers and radio are already spreading it. I am sure India will be Clean in five years and remains Clean forever. India will then be appreciated by the foreigners, who despise and fear visits to India because of uncleanliness.
