What is Clean India? By Eshan

Swachh Bharat Mission is a programme to condition people on civic sense, but we are taking things as granted. India’s present scenario is not at all impressive. Once upon a time, this land was known ‘The Golden Bird’ but now we have made it a bird which is not even able to flap its wings. Mahatma Gandhi has said, “Be the change you want to see in the world” but what we do is just pointing out mistakes of our government, of our system. The political parties of this land are just misguiding people by presenting manipulated facts and figures against each other. From my point of view, cleaning India involves not only cleaning our streets but also our character, corruption, terrorism, black money, racial discrimination, gender discrimination and so on. 
Prime Minister Modi once said that “If people of India can reach Mars with minimal expenditure, why can they not keep their streets and colonies clean.” For making this campaign successful, first we should inculcate civic sense in our younger generation. We should teach our younger generation about their contribution towards their very own ‘land of pearls’ that is India. We should also teach them that they should think for the country, for the soldiers, for the sake of cleaning India. 
We at this age of 16 are so enthusiastic that we regularly motivate our fellow students to think beyond their imagination and to contribute for their country in terms of respecting the campaigns launched by the government, respecting our soldiers and martyrs. We as a citizen of India should contribute to this campaign at our personal level. 
Cleanliness is not limited to any person, it is the responsibility of everyone to clean themselves as well as their surroundings to really make India a clean India in near future. It is appropriate to say that “Cleanliness is Next to Godliness” with does not need any justification. Clean people and healthy people can make a wealthy country and no day is better than today to take the pledge of cleanliness. If each and every Indian takes up this campaign as his/her own responsibility and join hands together to make it a triumphant mission that only we will be able to become a developed country not in terms of any UN report or any developed country list, we will be able to become a developed country in the minds of our citizens and our future.
