Towards a Cleaner India with MyGov

13 Jan 2015


After successful launch of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan on 2nd October, 2014 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, citizens have been proactively contributing to MyGov by posting their cleanliness activities as well as sharing their experiences and ideas on various aspects of the Mission. Concerned citizens poured in a large number of suggestions and undertook tasks to initiate their first step towards making a Clean India. Some of the innovative action-worthy suggestions are mentioned below:-

1. VISHAL MAHAJAN: “How about launching a #Cleanindiachallenge? #Icebucketchallenge is trending on Facebook. It got necessary publicity when Bill Gates took it. He forwarded it to Ryan Seacrest, Chris Anderson and Elon Musk. I think PM Modiji should create a similar frenzy with cleaning a road for 30 minutes, without a fanfare and just a cameraman and upload his effort on Facebook. Then he should challenge Ratan Tataji, Barkha Datt and Nitin GadkariJi. This will display how serious Modiji is about cleanliness.”

2. SATYAVRAT CHARURVEDI: “An app that allows people to click and upload picture of unattended garbage and leaking sewage, the uploaded picture can be tagged to the location using maps or an address can be written. Google maps app can be used for it. This data can be provided to the municipal corporation and a time limit should be given to them to attend to it. An overall heat map of all complaints should be made available to help in planning, executing and scrutinizing waste management.”

3. BHOOMA KUMARI (In reference to : Help in improving the cleanliness standards by visiting a mid-day meal kitchen Task)”Compiled two reports on the mid-day meal kitchens in Tamil Nadu” sites/ default/files/ static_uploads/ 4be8b270f290de7 0fd094474d470c346 .pdf sites/ default/files/ static_uploads/ 5b1dc754d4e36c419 d4bb6d83c6ffc19. pdf

4. RAMPRASAD R (In reference to : Help in improving the cleanliness standards by visiting a mid-day meal kitchen Task) “Visited Akshaya Patra kitchen by Iskcon few months back, the sentence ‘cleanliness leads to godliness’ reflects here. The environment is so clean that you never find any unclean state, all members wear caps and mouth masks, outside members are strictly prohibited, the method of cooking is very systematic, and the food is static and has rich nutritional value, Akshaya Patra has an endless success story .there is security and taste check for every stock that is served, hope its implemented all over India.” default/ files/ static_uploads/ c064765124cfdd4b98b fc47ce3b3c9e5.jpg

7. BRIJESH RAJPUT (In reference to identifying- Global best practices for cleaner and greener planet): “I have been to Germany few times. I was impressed by their bin system of waste disposal. Attached pdf explains the different types of bins. These bins are placed almost everywhere and maintained very well. Also would like to mention the refund for recyclable bottles.

    माननीय प्रधानमंत्री जी
    हम अपने मंदिर के पुजारियों को ये सिखाने में असफल रहे है की उनको अपने मंदिर परिसर में डस्टबिन भी रखनी चाहिए. पालीथीन में प्रसाद ला के चढाने वाले को रोकना चाहिए. एक चम्मच गंगा जल का सेवन हम सब को नियमित करना चाहिए. बच्चे के जन्मदिन पर उसे किसी नदी में स्नान करवानी चाहिए. छोटी नदियों में नौका विहार भी किया जाना चाहिए. बच्चों को उनके क्षेत्र की नदियों के दर्शन और उनको पाठ्य पुस्तकों में जोड़ा जाना चाहिए. जब तक नदी हमारे जीवन से जुड़ेगी नही तब तक नैया पार कैसे जाएगी

    The entire emphasis of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is on cleaning the dirt. Would it not be better to lay emphasis on NOT CREATING DIRT ? The Abhiyan should run thus :1. Pan Kha kar raste par mat thook0 2. Chana Chor Garam Kha kar kagaz raste par mat pheko Ghar zad kar kachara khidki se bahar mat feko etc.What the Abhiyan has contributed so far is numerous photographs in News Papers of leaders wielding the Zadoo. Kachara failane kee aadat jyon ki tyon banee hooi haye !

    We should make Weekly Practice in Schools for student and Monthly Practice in schools with Parents.
    It can have some steps:
    1. Schools should cover 1.5km radius area under their supervision with Teachers, Students and Parents (which will make them self aware and responsible).
    2. Students should have weekly period of Swachh Mision in which they will clean school prescribed radius with their teachers.
    3. Parents will have a session monthly for the same.

    We see plastic is one of the major contributor for the garbage in public places. We all had seen how best we can make use of plastics in building roads in Amir Khan’s Satyamev Jayathe. I recommend all governments(states and Central) should give the contract of constructing roads ONLY to those conractors who use this formula. Bringing in regulation around this area would eliminate the danger from plastic littering and also provides a quality roads across India.

    Let’s increase number of foreigners working in India. An increased number of foreigners in India will facilitate our citizens to have an global exposure, which will help us look at ourselves through others eyes. In short it will widen our vision and will boost our country’s biological diversity.

    I would request government to update our school education system which will include programs for kids to learn the habit of using a dustbin at school.
