Let's Clean India

On 2nd October 2014 Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was launched by the government of India. It was started by our honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi at Rajghat, New Delhi. Our Prime Minister himself cleaned a road at Rajghat to start this mission. This mission is covering as many as 4041 towns to clean roads and infrastructure of the country. This mission has been undertaken with the objective of 'Clean India' by 2nd October 2019 as it is Mahatma Gandhi's 150th birthday. Our Prime Minister wants to gift 'Clean India' to Mahatma Gandhi on its 150th birthday. I think it's a great mission. We have been humiliated enough on the world level because of the dirt in our country. The best example of such humiliation is commonwealth games which were held in Delhi in 2010. Hence, I think it's time to clean our nation.

There are lots of places in India, which needs cleaning. I think the dirtiest place in any town is a railway station. People do everything on railway station. They eat, drink, sleep, urinate and take a bath at railway station. On one hand, we have the kind of people who find a dustbin at station to throw the wrapper, bottles etc. after eating and drinking. While on the other hand, we have another kind of people too who just throws wrappers and bottles on the way at the station and this kind of people are more in number compared to the earlier kind of people. Though the people have started finding a dustbin after this Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

I travel by train daily and I know the amount of filth people create at railway station. One morning a man was taking a bath and on a railway track. Railway cleaners saw him do that, but didn't say even a single word to him. He put his clothes on the pipeline and was quite enjoying his bath. A crow came, took his underwear and flew away. A crow did that work which even railway authorities were unable to do. Even a crow wants our country to be clean and supports Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Railway track is not a place to take a bath. Indian railway provides you a waiting room where you can take bath free of cost. It is better to take a bath there.

Some people are incorrigible and I feel really sad about it that people don't understand their responsibility towards our country. It's time to raise our voice against it and we have freedom to do that. If a crow can raise a voice in its own way, then why can't we? If you see any such instances on railway tracks or at the station, then inform about it to the authorities. If authority don't do anything then go to a higher authority. Do everything you can to make our country clean.
