Clean India Campaign (Swachh Bharat)
To clean entire environment
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
World citizens should try;
Polluted earth and firmament
Will make all one day cry!
Most rivers formed from melted snow
Of mountains pretty high
Are source of drinking water, oh!
Without which people die.
All rivers are held sacred too,
Why dirty them in ways?
All lands need irrigation due,
To raise crops with sun's rays.
The filth in holy rivers found
Defies all cleaning modes;
Carcasses, corpses, urns abound,
Whose stench, the water loads.
When lanes with garbage littered stare,
With civic sense all gone,
Made nature calls in open air,
Diseases new are born.
The air we breathe be better clean,
And smoke and smog be less;
And public places must be green,
And wear a beauteous dress.
Keep houses, neighborhoods too neat,
Keep tidying all the time;
Like separating chaff from wheat,
Do this in every clime.
Effluents should not rivers reach,
Cause harm to fishery;
Let clean be every road and beach,
Life shouldn't be misery.
Yet, cleanse your hearts and minds and souls,
Avoiding heinous sins;
Renew your aims, ambitions, goals,
Keep clean, with common-sense.
Dedicated to Mahatma Gandhiji on his Jayanthi
And PM Modiji
