We all know 'Swatch Bharath’ literally means 'Clean India’, we should also know that this was the dream of the father of our nation Mahatma Gandhiji. In order to make his dream come true, our honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modii started a nationwide cleanliness drive on 145th birthday of Gandhiji in the year 2014. It is called as Swatch Bharath Abhiyan.
Clean India, one India:
It is said that cleanliness is next to Godliness. India being a holy land should set as an example for the world nations, but the irony is that we were never taught, that it's our duty to keep our motherland clean. Swatch Bharat Abhiyan has totally changed this. It is not just a awareness programme, it is a call for the whole nation to come together for the betterment of our country.
In rural areas only 30% of the children continue with their high school education. Most of the girls dropout of the school because there is no toilet facilities available in maximum villages. Considering the future of our nation, government passed an order that each and every school should have toilets. Through various schemes subsides are given for the construction of separate or common toilets. By doing so open defecation and henceforth spreading of diseases like cholera and typhoid are controlled.
We can see people throwing garbage’s in and around the garbage bin. In order to stop this, garbage collecting persons were appointed to collect the waste from each and every household. Garbage treatment plants are set up throughout the country. Segregation of waste has to be done before it is treated, so separate dustbins are provided for organic decomposable waste and other inorganic wastes. Through constant advertisements and camps pubic is made aware of the need to dispose the wastes separately.
Many voluntary groups initiate this by cleaning their surrounding areas. Such groups are identified and awarded by the government. Many colleges and schools like our's, teach students how to manage the waste in detail format.
An initiation has been taken to make our India clean. This cannot be achieved in a day or two; it will take years of constant efforts and self realization of each and every individual to make 'Swatch Bharat' a reality.
