“Cleanliness is next to godliness”, a quote used by many but understood by only a few. With an idea to spread awareness and the true understanding of cleanliness among the youth, the students of Jamia Hamdard decided to wield the broom on 3rd October, 2018.
A cleanliness drive was organised by the YUVA committee, a student led organisation in which more than a hundred students participated showing their enthusiasm for the Swachh Bharat campaign. The students were dressed in white, portraying the piousness that lies in the mere act of cleaning your surroundings. The students showed up with posters designed by themselves to showcase our ailing planet and to make sure its voice was heard. It was a representation of how our planet is in jeopardy and with it, all of us. It held a strong message of our responsibility towards keeping the land we live on clean. Quoting Margaret Thatcher, “No generation has a freehold on this earth. All we have is a life tenancy with a full repairing lease.”
