Launching 3rd Phase of Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan

“It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness”, says an age old adage.  Ramakrishna Mission at Mangalore took up the task of cleaning the city of Mangalore instead of blaming and cursing the filth and squalor that makes us turn our heads down in shame.  We thank all the enlightened citizens who lent us helping hands and were instrumental in bringing about a change for the better.

After successfully completing 40 weeks of Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan in 2 phases in 2015-16 with the support of awakened citizens, our Ashrama is resuming the Abhiyan by initiating the 3rd phase from 2nd October 2016. This will comprise of about 40 groups in different parts of Mangalore, each comprising more than 50 members, carrying on the cleanliness drive on one Sunday every month for 10 consecutive months.

Launching of the 3rd phase of the Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan and felicitation of 75 Poura Karmikas who have strived to keep out city clean all along will be held in our Ashrama on the 2nd October.  This will be followed by a Seminar on Swacch Manas for Swacch Bharath to highlight the importance of a shift in the mental attitude to ensure of success of this Abhiyan. Details of the programme are given in the following pages.

We invite all the interested people who feel in their small action lies the future of our great nation to come forward and join this mighty cause.

Yours in the service of the needy,

Swami Jitakamannada
