An unclean environment is an insult to the creator . Everything that God has created is beautiful , and Mother Nature has in her the power and means to maintain the hygiene and sanitation of the earth . It is only man who makes the environment dirty . For reasons , best known to himself , very often , man is happy to keep it that way .

When you go to a place of  religious worship, don’t you bathe first ? don’t you put on your best cloths ? Remember , this world is our temple and the first norm we must follow is that of personal hygiene .This involves keeping one’s body  , clothes, belongings and home clean . This prevents diseases and enhances the quality of life . it also keeps the mind fresh and motivates us to work better .

Cleanliness must also extend towards the neighbourhood and the environment in general . For this , it is imperative that every person develops clean social and civic habits . It is wrong to spit  on the roads , urinate in public or throw litter anywhere one pleases . Doing such things only spoil this wonderful place that has been gifted to us by the Almighty – our planet earth .

It is our moral duty to keep ourselves ,our homes. Our environment , our nation and this earth clean . That is what is meant by the proverb ‘Cleanliness is next to Godliness’ .
