Let us make big noises about clean placesWe need a big revolution in terms of cleanliness. There is no scope for laziness in this regard. Let us showcase all the cleanest towns, villages and cities in our own State. For example, if there is some constructive activity and some parts of a town are clean, we should learn from that.
Indore is a classic example. We need to have this model everywhere. It has now emerged as the cleanest city in India. How did they do it? From all accounts, there has been a good deal of community participation.
Teams of social workers and officials should visit Indore, document the experiences and then do the same thing in terms of implementation. Unless we are clean, nothing will happen. Public health will not improve.
We need a big movement towards this. Parts of Coimbatore city are spotlessly clean. It is a far better than than most. Yet, there is plenty of scope for improvement. Likewise, we also need to emulate the best practices from whatever villages or towns that we know of, or get to read about.
The time to do this, is now. Members may please share their knowledge of good practices in this regard.
