“2017 is our Year of the Pledge to sweep Garbage, Poverty, Corruption, Terrorism, Casteism and Communalism out of India”
~ Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Cleanliness is a habit of keeping ourselves physically and mentally clean including with our home, pet animals, surroundings, environment, pond, river, schools, etc. We should not only keep ourselves neat, clean and well-dressed but clean our natural resources (water, food, land, etc) and the environment too.
Marking the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Narendra Modi ji vowed to create New India that lives up to Gandhi’s dream .“Cleanliness is Godliness” is the mantra of Mahatma Gandhi ji, Father of Nation. Mahatma Gandhi had a revolutionary vision about making India clean
“Modi ji identified the characteristics of his vision on the lines of Gandhiji’s dream for India, “which is clean and environmentally-friendly, where every individual is fit and healthy, where every mother, child is nourished, where every citizen feels safe; an India which is free from discrimination, and has harmony. India which will follow the ideals of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas. These principles of Bapu will be our guiding light to achieve our goal of a New India.” **
PM Modi also spoke about the New India Website https://newindia.in/ that has information and activities pertaining to the ‘Sankalp Se Sidhhi’ (achievement through resolve) movement pioneered by him.
*The Pledge *is to build a New India by 2022; an India that is devoid of corruption, is clean, has no poverty, is free of terrorism, has no distinction on the basis of caste and religion.
India needs the effective role of civil society in the making of new India. All the new initiatives of the government require the participation and awareness of people and there is no better organisation than the civil society to achieve this objective.
Environment is, Indeed, Mainstream
Although the past decade of rapid economic growth has brought many benefits to India, the environment has suffered, exposing the population serious air and water pollution.
A new report finds that environmental degradation costs India $80 billion per year or 5.7% of its economy.
Green growth strategies are needed to promote sustainable growth and to break the pattern of environmental degradation and natural resource depletion. Emission reductions can be achieved with minimal cost to GDP.
Optimal Water Use
India is facing one of its major and most serious water crisis. After two consecutive years of weak monsoons, 330 million people — a quarter of the country’s population — are affected by a severe drought. With nearly 50 per cent of India grappling with drought-like conditions, the situation has been particularly grim this year in western and southern states that received below average rainfall.
Digital India Program
Digital technology has become a vital factor in accelerating the pace of India’s economic growth.
The ‘Digital India’ initiative was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 1 July 2015, and on the fourth anniversary of the programme, we can celebrate the fact that there have been dramatic improvements in all of its three key facets: in the creation of pervasive national digital infrastructure, in the electronic delivery of public services and financial succour to citizens, and in enhancing digital awareness and literacy.

Eradication of Corruption
Anti-corruption movements and the changes in the outlook of people in India regarding this serious issue of corruption have impacts on the political structure of India. Although corruption has not died down completely the awareness due to the civil society movement has affected the corrupt structure greatly.
The dream of new India cannot be fulfilled without a vibrant civil society and hence all of us should try to protect the civil societies for a brighter future tomorrow.
Let’s take pledge to make clean and green India!
