(a) Swachh Bharat Mission – the need for its intensification

A very good morning to one and all present here. Today I, Raunaq Sharma the secretary of the Environment Conservation Club will recite a speech on the need to intensify the ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’.


The ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ was introduced by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 2nd October 2014 to mark the 145th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. It was a mission that gained a lot of popularity even on national and international level. It is also known as ‘Clean India Mission’ or ‘Clean India Drive’. It was quite successful in spreading awareness about the need and importance of cleanliness. It is said that ‘well begun is half done’. This mission is not limited to cleaning but also concerned with construction and promotion of proper sanitation and advancement of infrastructure. This can be applied to the Swachh Bharat Mission and the success that it has got is praiseworthy. Many prominent personalities, actors, sportsperson and social activists have contributed to this mission by picking up the broom and cleaning their surroundings. This mission is aimed at covering 4041 cities and towns in India.


This year it being the 150th birth anniversary this mission aims to fulfill its dream of clean India. To this my personal view is that this rate of success can continue to grow if each person takes up the responsibility of not littering their place they are contributing towards cleanliness already. In this way we will be able to intensify this mission and move a step closer to the fulfillment of this mission. Thanks for being such an attentive audience.


(b). Plant more Trees


Trees are the biggest source of oxygen. We should not only stop cutting the trees but we should also start planting more and more trees in our neighborhoods.


On our level we may just see a few advantages of planting trees but if you see deeper you will know that its importance is concerned with our existence. Primarily, trees help us control pollution by taking in the carbon dioxide and giving us fresh air and oxygen. Apart from this, trees like apple, aloe vera, basil etc. are a source of many medicinal herbs and help in preventing/treating various diseases. Additionally, trees are capable of reducing soil erosion. Nature in all its form is a source of joy for many. Trees provide shadow during scorching heat and give a soothing relief from the warmth. Similarly, during rains these trees become our shades. People prefer walking in parks early in the morning because of the natural healing that plants and trees offer. It provides a scenic view to the city and makes the environment a better place to live in.


There are many NGO’s that support planting trees and sensitize people towards the need of a greener environment. It is never too late to start something good so we should start planting trees around us. Even if each one of us plants one tree we will soon be able to make the environment full of greenery.
