Our country is our mother and to keep our country clean is our duty. Everyday we do things for ourselves, just a little bit of awareness and consciousness in keeping our surroundings clean will enable us to live in a healthy environment and we all know health is everything. Today I went on a cleanliness drive to Versova Beach with my friends and family and in reality, the pleasure I felt in cleaning the beach is indescribable…. In Mahatma Gandhi ji’s words … “An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching” …. So please do your bit ? #SwachhBharat #SwachhataHiSeva
