“Cleanliness is next to the Godliness”. This is a famous quote by Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. According to Mahatma Gandhi, a strong country could only be built on the shoulders of cleanliness. It was Gandhiji’s dream of having a clean India that was free from sanitation woes and social stigma attached to cleaning. Today, if we want to realize Gandhiji’s dream of Clean India, then we have to understand the significance of cleanliness not only at personal level (in home and society) but also at a large level.
