Mahatama Gandhi had rightly said, “Sanitation is more important than Independence”. He was aware of the pathetic situation of Indian rural people at that time and he dreamt of a clean India where he emphasized cleanliness and sanitation as an integral part of living.
On 28th September, The Aldona Panchayat organized a cleanliness drive under Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan programme on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. The main purpose of this programme was to create awareness among the students and people regarding cleanliness and its benefits. The teachers were an essential part of this drive. As a part of this Cleanliness Drive, we went to our neighborhood collecting plastic, bottles and the garbage. In the end, we all took an oath of keeping our home, locality, and city clean. It was a unique experience for all of us. We were delighted to be the part of this great drive that could have transformed the face of our country forever.
