Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement

Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement


Prime Minister Modi has laid a lot of emphasis on cleanliness. In this direction, he launched the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. This movement envisages a clean India through participation of every Indian. A lot of suspicion prevails over the success of this campaign, as many are arguing that until the attitude and mentality of people changes no campaign can clean India. So, should government have launched a mass awareness mission to change the mentality prior to Swach Bharat Abhiyan?

Yes:

-There will be no expected participation unless people’s attitude towards cleanliness and its importance changes.

- Indians generally cares very less about hygiene. Most of them even spit where ever they want, as they are unaware of the health implications. Their habit will not change unless they are aware.

-Workers indulge in cleaning jobs hardly gets any respect within the society. Most of them are from Scheduled casts. Unless the mentality towards these workers and their job changes, we cannot expect the mass participation.

-People keep their home clean, but when it comes to surroundings like streets, parks etc. nobody cares because they perceive it as the duty of government even though they themselves are responsible for throwing garbage and making their surroundings dirty.

No:

-Launching this mission with active participation of PM, ministers and officials itself motivates citizens to participate.

-The mission highlights the importance of cleanliness very well and making them aware is an integral part for this mission.

-The issue of cleanliness was not given enough priority during the last many decades. This campaign will prioritize this issue.

-We cannot wait for changing mentalities and attitudes as burden of health diseases on the economy due to lack of cleanliness is increasing.

-Most importantly, taking action for making India clean through this campaign itself is the first necessary step towards realizing this dream.

Conclusion:
Making people aware is important, but more important is that this awareness is converted to actions. As government itself has taken the initiative, this will definitely motivate people and make them realize that cleanliness is not just government’s responsibility. On its part government can introduce a separate awareness drive too, so that more and more people join this campaign. Ultimately, these efforts will not only force people to change their attitude of “nothing will change” but also ensures their participation too.

  • ya , i agree that first we have to change our attitude toward the clean india or swach bharat , this is a good initiative taken by government and PM Modi. The change
    is only possible when will change our mindset , it our duty to keep our country clean ,
    blaming government and mnc's is not the solution of this problem . we will have to
    come together to complete this mission of clean india , if we dream for smart cities
    we will have to clean our cities.

  • Awareness about keeping the surroundings clean is the first step in achieving clean India. We are just thinking of urban part, awareness is really required in rural parts. It is even better if children are provided awareness because it is difficult to change the attitude of adults. Starting with children is a good idea which may materialize slowly.

  • Indian political system is very complicated , Every politician promise to clean the India by taking various awareness program and no one implement this awareness into action which is done by Modi government . If modi government is working so hard to accomplish swach bharat abhiyan then It is responsibility of every citizen to work on it which ultimately changes the attitude of stubborn people in Indian society .

  • Hi friends I will speak in favour of this topic
    I think changing the attitude of people is more important rather than taking the movement into action.... I would like to explain this with an example ,
    Imagine your family has a discussion on the topic of cleanliness and you r the suspected person who doesn't clean his room and your dad tells you to clean it.... And the very next day your mom observers you and notices no change but as she likes the
    house to be clean your mom takes the action and starts to clean your room..this continues and never ends ... You know why because the attitude of yours towards cleanliness has never changed.....
    The very same way change in the attitude is very important.

  • Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -Pravin Shelke (06/01/15)
  • Clean India is a good think. As name suggests it not only cleans the environment but also our health in good condition. I always welcome this mission. But this is applicable for all the peoples. Sometimes relatives of Minister spit on public place & our government officer not to them as a common man, this is a very shameful thing. So this also discourage the common people, as they think if they are doing this then why can't I do? Also when monsoon season comes our Muncipal Corp. wake up and they cleans the nearby narrow lane of railway track. My suggession why they are not clean weekly or daily.
    In short We all of us responsible for this mission not one people.

  • yes, i am agree with the point attitude is more important than the movement. Because people thought and attitude decides the cleanliness of their surrounding and city. until people attitude don't change movement cannot gonna be a perfect device to provide clean India.
    mentality of individuals should change to provide clean India. All people should have knowledge about disease and problems created through the lack of cleanliness. After movement started by our respected PM Narendra Modi i saw the people to put raper, papers etc. at any place instead of dustbin. Even educated people do these type of unexpected job. All these happens because of their laziness and attitude.

  • RE: Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -Ash (04/17/15)
  • Yes I totally agree with the topic of discussion that Attitude chnge is more important than the movement. First of all, we need active participation for a movement to be a success and this active participation will come only if the people have that attitude. Secondly, even if we consider the fact that the participation of the PM itself may motivate people to participate in the movement, this won't last for a long time unless hte attitude of the people towards cleanliness is changed. The PM has a vision to sustain this cleanliness movement and to do that, the Clean India attitude is most important rathe than the Clean India movement.
  • RE: Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -shubham kumar (04/17/15)
  • what i think about clean india movement is that it contributing a lot both in creating awareness among the people as well in inspiring people to take part actively in this movement by keeping their surroundings clean. A lot is yet to achieve i'am not ignoring this fact but it is also important to appreciate the efforts which are put by government and various individuals to make this movement successful and at last i want to say- world will change, if we will change we just have to try
  • RE: Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -melvin mathew (04/12/15)
  • From one angle attitude change is more important than movements,because after taking part in a big movement ang conducting awarenesses classes making placards cleaning roads and public places etc, but knowingly or unknowingly doesnt care of our private place or littering the waste of placard that we had made etc doesnt change anything. That means attitude change is more important.
    But from other view that is from my view movemet is more imp because attitude maynot change volentarily. And we cant wait until a change of attitude. But a stong movement can change the attitude. If a strong movement is initiated and start cleaning ghe public places,roads,rivers. The one who sees this may change his attitude or this movemnet can change his attitude. And he may think once more before throwing a waste box or litter paper pices. So i think a strong movement can change the people
  • RE: Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -Himansu Rath (04/10/15)
  • Hello friends,

    Yes attitude change is more important than the movement . There is a sentence ,i think all you know that ,"If you want a change ,1st change yourself ". Before campaigning about clean India ,we need to take the 1st step . if we are cleaning our surroundings ,Hospitals,Schools ,then we can aware about this to others. there are many people who clean our India by words, speech and by orders. They think 1st change other attitudes and then try to change own attitude.
    i am requesting to all of you plz spend at least 2 hour for clean India.
  • RE: Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -ashutosh mani (03/30/15)
  • Attitude is important stuff to make any thing wonderful or successful but at same time a platform is required to show your attitude.I think so movement provides people a reason to ask others to keep your surrounding clean by giving precedence of our PM in making our country clean.Movement connects people in mass with it.
  • RE: Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -Shipra Sinni (03/30/15)
  • As long as we talk about movement...... the movement comes along with attitude only. Attitude to do something , to initiate something not to talk about only. When we say I want my surroundings clean........ that means we are expecting someone to clean it......... but when we say I want to keep my surrounding clean......... that means we are doing something to clean it. So, attitude is very important for movement........... but attitude without movement is useless.
  • RE: Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -Diksha (03/30/15)
  • as my point of view , People just change their thinking first because if people think about what the other person saying for that we can not 100% contribute for this mission . so the attitude first change for the success of this mission..

  • According to me, both things are necessary , they are prerequisite of each other. But changing mentality greatly affect the cleanness than movements, because if we change the mentality first then we can start the movement by mass of people which lead to the goal in short time with good result.
  • RE: Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -Prem Motwani (03/27/15)
  • Government needs to put in place a system of collecting garbage from every house. Delhi metro is clean even after 10 years because there is a system of non-littering. The very same people litter as soon as they step out. No slogans will help.
  • RE: Clean India - Attitude change is more important than the movement -Vaidhatri Jain (02/26/15)
  • Yes, i am agree with this statement that attitude change is more important than the movement. Here we all are doing a huge discussion on a single statement. Everyone is putting their comment on a single statement but how many are here who tried or trying their best on their level. I think there are may be a very few people who are doing their best. I appriciate the modi 's cleaness campaign of india. But here i am not completely supporting the goverment because modi is running this campaign but he is not providing the right infrastructure for the cleaness of india. He is teaching and motivating the people that how can we keep clean our surroundings but what about open drain and gutter, overflow dustbins, pig areas, street dogs, the huge garbage collection at out side area but nearest place of the city. So, who will manage all these things. It is not our job. It is obviously the goverment job. We can not handle all these things at our level. Day by day it all makes the surroundings dirty and dirty and finally it is uncontrollable for us. So we can just put our best at our level and can not do anything except this.we
    All be aware about the things related to cleaness and also spread the awareness about this to all people who are educated or not. Obviously we are the one who cange the people's mind. So for a look of healthy and wealthy india we all should change our attitude and do actions.
