Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Hindi: स्वच्छ भारत अभियान, English: Clean India Mission) is a national campaign by the Government of India, covering 4041 statutory towns, to clean the streets, roads and infrastructure of the country.
This campaign was officially launched on 2 October 2014 at Rajghat, New Delhi, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself cleaned the road. It is India’s biggest ever cleanliness drive and 3 million government employees and school and college students of India participated in this event. The mission was started by Prime Minister Modi, who nominated nine famous personalities for the campaign, and they took up the challenge and nominated nine more people and so on (like the branching of a tree). It has been carried forward since then with people from all walks of life joining it.
Since the time our Prime Minister has initiated the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan, it has had an impact all over the country. Then why should we be left behind while the whole country is proceeding towards a revolution?! Mozilla Nashik Community loves the environment & therefore this initiative was born! We shortlisted a few places in Nashik, but how could we neglect our pilgrimage?! Goda Park near Ganga Ghat won the poll & we headed there all armed with gloves and masks and kharatas.
In the end it did feel good, we felt like we were capable of handling a responsibility and contributed not only to the Abhiyaan but to the country. I guess we served justice to our motto “Doing good is part of our code”. We feel proud to be called Mozillians & had our chance to clean our city, what are you upto? Think about it!
