India, one of the largest subcontinents of the world, is evidently rich in culture and heritage, but unfortunately, infamous for its unhygienic living conditions and DIRT.

In order to paint a new image in the minds of people, Swacch Bharat Abhiyan was launched by our honourable prime minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, which has been welcomed with open hands and has become a legendary success.

In order to celebrate Swacchta Pakhwada, youngsters from NMIMS INDORE came forward and performed ‘NUKKAD NATAK’, a street play that successfully took place in Malhar Mega Mall of Indore.

The core message of the play was to enlighten the Indorians over not just keeping Indore clean, but also to persuade and convince fellow Indians to keep the entire India clean. The play sighted an example of one of our practices – Women in India are not allowed to lift the Ghungat, but are told to defecate in the open. Such references were eye opening.

The crowd watching the play cheered it with a big round of applause that appeared to echo amongst the hearts of the youth. They left the crowd with a very strong message – Ab Bharat Banega Number one (Now India will become Number 1).

Cleanliness is next to Godliness is mundane and old. Godliness refers to being clean spiritually and mentally. Cleanliness not only facilitates success but also ensures social development of not just individuals, but a society as a whole. It is now our moral responsibility, as citizens of India, to make our mother proud. Be an Indian, make the difference happen.
