Cleanliness has a vital role in the life of each and every person as well as the society in general. As quoted by John Wesley, ” “cleanliness is next to Godliness”. This phrase emphasises the importance of cleanliness for a healthy life. It is a step towards a healthier tomorrow. Cleanliness can be defined as the habit of keeping ourselves physically and mentally clean, including our home, pet animals, surroundings, environment, pond, river, schools, etc. Actually, cleanliness is both the abstract state of being clean and free from germs, dirt, trash or waste and the habit of achieving and maintaining that state. Mahatma Gandhi had a revolutionary vision about making India clean. Basically there are many benefits of a clean environment like saving endangered species, pollution free surroundings, less hazards, steady supply of food, water and many natural resources. Thus as a responsible citizen, it is our duty to ensure cleanliness of not only our home but our surroundings and our country, too.


With the clean India movement  ( or Swachh Bharat Abhiyan ) gaining momentum, it is essential for all of us to do our bit to keep our surroundings clean. Clean India Movement is a campaign by the Government of India to clean the streets, roads and infrastructure of the country’s 4041 statutory cities and towns. We need to follow few basic steps to maintain the cleanliness.
Every household generate waste products or garbage. We should not throw this garbage anywhere and everywhere, but use proper trash bins. Controlling the use of plastic bags will also help to keep our surroundings clean. We should use recyclable and eco-friendly products such as paper bags or jute bags. Throwing plastic bags here and there not only litters the road but also clogs drains and cause water logging.
       We should plant as many trees as we can because it will not only beautify our surroundings but will make it healthy by reducing pollution. The water bodies like lakes, ponds, rivers should also be kept clean. If we litter the water bodies, we pollute our sources of water supply. Dirty water bodies are the breeding places of many harmful insects and germs.
   Shifting our attention from outside to inside, it is extremely essential to keep our home clean because it is the basic requirement to maintain both our physical and mental health. Thus we should all strive to keep our home dirt free, germ free and clutter free.
