Wake up India

Aasmaan ki chhat pe
Hai apni duniya
Khilkhilati hai jisme apni khushiyan
Chaand ki chhalni liye
Taare chunte hain hum
Jaadui hai ye jahaan
Nahi hai koi gham

Bande hain hum uske
Humpe kiska zor
Ummedon ke sooraj
Nikle chaaron ore
Iraadein hain fauladi
Himmati har kadam
Apne haathon kismat likhne
Aaj chale hain hum….

.I take a pledge today to work with our #PM Narendra Modi in fulfilling his dream of #Swach Bharat.

Swachh Bharat Mission: Facts and Figures

  • Some lessons from our neighbours :

    Singapore is the smallest country in Southeast Asia but one of the best places to live in Asia. Singapore has emphasized the need to have good water, proper water conservation, pure air, clean energy, controlled traffic and efficient energy supply.
    • The Government has always emphasized on making Singapore a ‘Garden City’, with key focus on perfect urban planning and pollution control. Today the city is clean and green.
    • The clean water bodies of the country provide clean water for all.
    • Since long, the Government has relied on 3 R’s – reduce, reuse and recycle.
    • In Japan, students and teachers together clean and mop up toilets. This was a part of character building from a young age.
    • Japanese are born hygiene conscious. It is a common sight to see Japanese women and men, regularly wearing surgical masks and white gloves, specially the women.
    • Japan’s toilets are actual demonstration of modern technology. All Japanese homes have separate rooms each for washing face, brushing teeth, the bath and the toilets

    NDTV and Dettol launched the ” Banega Swachh India Campaign”

    Taking the Prime Minister ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ forward, NDTV-Dettol invites NGOs, RWAs & citizens from across the country to join hands for the Banega Swachh India campaign.

    As a part of the campaign, NDTV will be hosting a 12-hour Cleanathon with the campaign ambassador Amitabh Bachchan on December 14 that aims to spread awareness and to raise funds in support of the cause.  The 12-hour show will be broadcast LIVE across the NDTV Network and will showcase the impact of the various initiatives undertaken as part of the campaign.
    RB (formerly known as Reckitt Benckiser) has partnered with NDTV and Facebook to launch “Dettol – Banega Swachh India” – a 5-year ambitious programme to address the rising need of hygiene and sanitation in India. The campaign aims at creating awareness about the importance of hygiene and sanitation. It will also work with NGO partners to support infrastructure for construction and maintenance of toilets. RB India has committed to spend a sum of Rs.100 crores towards this programme over the next 5 years.
