“CLEANLINESS IS GODLINESS”

Image result for image to depict cleanliness is godliness

 

To our holy Motherland- India tht is Bharath
From the days of our ancestors to this day on this earth
“Cleanliness is deemed to be next to Godliness”-not new
Gandhiji said the toilet must be as clean us pooja room!

Never cleanliness was made a political issue
Indian society conscious of our philosophy
Not to give credence to the political propaganda
We continue to be conscious of cleanliness!

Cleanliness of the body and mind, neighborhood nice
Leads to healthy living making our lives joyful spice
Healthy mind in a healthy body age old adage
All to ensure cleanliness all over- as a package!

  1. Sir, It is said in Tamil ” KANTHAI AANALUM KASAKI KATTU” and “KOOZHANALUM KULITHU KUDI”
    These add to the saying ‘ Cleanliness is next to godliness” Gandhiji ‘s saying is fine here.. Toilet cleaning is equal to prayer room.

    Your saying that not only the body should be kept clean but also the mind should be kept clean.
    As rightly said the cleanliness of neighbourhood also makes the life joyful.

    The stress here is to live a healthy and long life with peace and prosperity.

    Finally,

    “SUTHTHAM CHORU PODUM”
    “SUTHTHAM SUGAM THARUM”

    are the Tamil wordings for cleanliness.

    Sir, at this age you are very punctual in all the activities of daily life and to my note, it is, sending
    your thoughts at 4 o’clock in morning through e mails. This habit is also the highest order of cleanliness.
    I am unable to keep up the punctuality even at this age.

    Thanking you Sir,

    G.Vasudevan

    1. Thanks Vasudevan for your great response. Yes rightly said in Tamil “CLEANLINESS GIVES US FOOD, CLEANLINESS GIVES US JOY”.Equally right is the adage “WASH AND WEAR EVEN THE TORN CLOTHS/RAGS, EVEN IF IT IS JUST PORRIDGE TAKE AFTER BATH” Nice Vasudevan.
