Swachh Bharat, Swasth Bharat (Bharathiya)

Hygiene is prime for healthy life;
Take care of body, mind;
Depression shouldn't seize you in strife;
In everything, joy, find.

Be cautious doing risky jobs;
Do keep your body chaste;
Substance abuse will bring you sobs;
To earn, don't be in haste.

The air and water, soil have germ;
Preserve immunity;
Have healthy habits, be quite firm;
God cares for you amply.

Keep clean your home and neighbourhood;
Drink water purified;
Let smiles and joys afill childhood;
Lead life that's sanctified.

Do not accrue ill-gotten wealth;
Excess is always bad;
Improve your virtues and your health;
You will be never sad.

Confess your sins to Almighty;
And love your neighbours all;
The environs quite clean, must be;
Break each dividing wall.

Do not neglect the poor and ill;
Let hands be always clean;
Life is akin climbing a hill;
The peak has glorious scene.

Indians, clean up your minds and hearts;
Go purify your souls;
Howev'r you live, life ends, departs;
Check all your earthly roles.

Dedicated most lovingly to our
Hon'ble Prime Minister of India, Shri. Narendra Modi
To encourage all Indians to fulfil
Mahatma Gandhiji's unfulfilled dream
Of a clean Indian

Beautiful poem on Swachh Bharat. You have covered all the points for clean up drive not only for our nation, but also within self, which is equally important. Beautiful presentation with fantastic lines... Indians, clean up your minds and hearts; Go purify your souls; Howev'r you live, life ends, departs; Check all your earthly roles. Loved reading it. Thanks for sharing with us.
