Cleanliness is Godliness
‘Cleanliness is Godliness’ is a very wise saying. Here cleanliness is equated to Godliness. Godliness is the quality of being devoutly religious. Cleanliness is the quality of being devoutly pure and clean. Being clean is an extremely important requirement as it helps to maintain a healthy mind and body.
A clean atmosphere has a positive effect on the mind. Individuals are able to concentrate better on their work in a clean surrounding. It keeps their mind and body fresh and healthy. A clean country is most likely to be a hygienic country while a dirty and filthy country is prone to infections and in turn becomes unhygienic. To maintain cleanliness in the country one must start from themselves than their house, and then automatically by habit they will keep their surroundings clean. Dustbins are a place where lot of germs and other bacteria get accumulated, thus they must be cleaned regularly else the house will be prone to infections. We must also practise personal hygiene. Next we must clean the roads in our locality and if we see people littering, we must make them aware of its adverse consequences. The Government has also launched campaigns like the “Swach Bharat Abhiyan” though it all depends on us and how we take it.
We must keep our surroundings clean or else bear the brunt of it. A clean person is not somebody who runs away from dirt but one who takes time to clean a dirty environment.
