Our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given an enthusiastic and passionate call for ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ to realise Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of cleanliness, urging everyone to devote minimum two hours every week towards cleanliness. Needless to say that the “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” is the crying need, as India, the otherwise recognized religious and spiritual capital of the world is also well-known as the filthiest country on the globe. ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ is a mass movement to realize Gandhi’s visualization of clean India by 150th Birth Anniversary on 2nd October 2019. The Mahatma’s visualisation of cleanliness was three-pronged – a clean mind, a clean body and clean surroundings. Holding that ‘Cleanliness is next to godliness’, he emphatically wrote, “We can no more gain God’s blessing with an unclean body than with an unclean mind. A clean body cannot reside in an unclean city”. (Young India 19/11/1925) An old proverb says, “Cleanliness is next to godliness.” This means that cleanliness comes next to godliness in importance.The whole statement means cleanliness takes a common man to the proximity of God. This journey starts from cleanliness of clothes, body and surroundings. Everything around us should be clean and beautiful. For which, Addison says “Beauty produces love, but cleanliness preserves it”. The very famous quote of our “Father of Nation” is “I WILL NOT LET ANYONE WALK THROUGH MY MIND WITH THEIR DIRTY FEET”. Then, there is the cleanliness of mind. Mind should be clear off from all the feelings of hatred, harm and haram (sinful). Buddha’s eight fold path emphasized much in the cleanliness of mind. When the dirt of sinfulness is obliterated from the screen of mind, noble, lovable and pious actions come into action. Mahatma Gandhi also told that “Cleanliness of mind and body is the first step in education”. Means शिक्षा का पहला चरण दिमाग और शरीर की सफार्इ है. DRDO is spending crores of rupees onEnvironmental Control Hygiene Maintenance Services (ECHMS) contract. For example the open tender for DMSRDE, Kanpur dated 01 September 2014 is having an estimated cost of Rs. Twenty two Lakhs Fifty Thousand and Open tender for ADE, Bangalore dated 16-09-2014 is having an estimated cost of Rs. One Crore. So DRDO top management should not worried about cleanliness of roads, residential complexes, offices, work places, parks/gardens and toilets etc. DRDO officials needs cleanliness of mind based on principles of Mahatma Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi that will make DRDO corruption free and that will be true homage to Mahatma Gandhi Ji and real contribution in Prime Minister “Clean India Mission”.
