Respected principal teachers and my dear fellows
Most kids have probably heard the adage, “Cleanliness is next to godliness.” But do they understand what these phrases really mean? This proverb emphasizes the value of having a good moral foundation and maintaining personal hygiene. It implies that everyone has a moral obligation to maintain the cleanliness and orderliness of their immediate surroundings and themselves.
Realizing your responsibility for maintaining a clean and safe environment is the first step in creating one for everyone to live in. Then, do what needs to be done and inspire those around you to follow suit.
Many times, when we discuss hygiene, people have broad ideas in their minds. People have begun to take note of clean nations, clean environments, clean cities, and clean highways. People tend to forget about themselves when considering these pervasive phenomena. Personal cleanliness is where it all begins.
Everyone should prioritize themselves before all else. Everyone should maintain their personal cleanliness and hygiene since it is possible to understand broad sentiments or conceptions about cleanliness. Everyone should start with themselves to improve the nation’s cleanliness, as Mahatma Gandhi advised, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
One can maintain themselves neat by having a daily bath, cleaning their hands and feet after coming inside from the outside, keeping their home clean and organized, cutting their hair and nails when needed, etc. The majority of people ignore and handle these tasks carelessly, which has little bearing on how they maintain their hygiene.
There are other benefits that cleanliness will offer to our lives, not just protecting us from sickness. According to research, seeing a tidy environment increases a person’s overall pleasure by 53%.
Additionally, tension, despair, and anxiety can be lessened by clearing up clutter. People who live in disorganized environments are more prone to stress, distraction, and decreased productivity. As a result, they won’t be able to focus on particular topics as well as those who live in clean homes.
Any nation’s ability to maintain cleanliness is influenced by its population, poverty level, and degree of education. Education is the most crucial component since it may lower poverty rates and help with overpopulation issues. If the nation’s citizens were more educated, they would be better able to keep the country clean. They can instill excellent habits in their progeny as well.
Because of the high rate of illiteracy, the Indian government has conducted numerous cleanliness initiatives with little result. The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, the most current campaign for cleanliness led by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has had great success. It is a very serious matter, and if we truly want India to thrive, we must preserve cleanliness in our nation, which is best started at home.
To solve any issues, we must realize that our nation is also our home. As citizens of our nation, it is our duty to clean up any unkempt areas we come across. Our highways, tourist attractions, historical sites, educational institutions, office buildings, etc. should all be kept immaculately clean.
I don’t think there is a better day than today. Today is the day that we should swear to keep our country clean forever and never allow it to go dirty again out of respect for her and out of respect for ourselves. Just imagine what would happen if our homes and the entire nation appeared as brightly every day as they do during Diwali. Consider again: Can we not obtain power, confidence, positive energy, a healthy life, a healthy environment, and positive attitudes of other nations globally forever if Diwali’s cleanliness alone could provide us all year long self-assurance, strength, and good vibes?
