Cleanliness and hygiene are two very important factors responsible for a nation’s healthy and smooth development. But, not many citizens follow their duties and are seen littering roads and public transport. However, a heartwarming incident from the Delhi metro throws light on an individual’s responsibility towards cleanliness and the nation’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan.
A LinkedIn photo that has resurfaced on the internet shows how a young boy cleaned the floor of a Delhi metro after his tiffin box mistakenly spill. The photos were uploaded on LinkedIn by a user named, Ashu Singh.
According to Mr Singh’s post, a young boy was traveling in Delhi metro when he accidentally spilled his tiffin on the floor while he was trying to take out the water bottle from his bag. While many wouldn’t bother, the young boy, surprisingly, tore out a page from one of his notebooks and picked up all the food from the floor. He then took his handkerchief and wiped the floor clean.
