“Swacch Mangaluru for Swacch Bharath” is a novel initiative of Ramakrishna Mission, Mangaluru undertaken on special request from Government of India This initiative was flagged off on the 1st February 2015 in a special programme at Ramakrishna Math, Mangalore. In a nutshell its about 4000 youths dedicating their precious time on 40 weekends in 40 different wards of the Mangaluru city in cleaning and also in creating an awareness about cleanliness.
Cleaning the nation is not a day’s job. Neither can this be achieved by just few legislations by Govt. agencies. It demands participation from each and every responsible citizen. Ramakrishna Mission has always stood in the forefront in the service of the society. We seize this opportunity to serve the nation through leading from the front by taking up this cleanliness drive.
Our motive is not to sweep Mangalore clean, but to create an awareness among the people, particularly in the younger generation about its importance and their role in keeping their surroundings cleaner and greener.
On this occasion we would also like to thank Nitte Group of Institutions and MRPL for their continued support, cooperation and patronage for this initiative.
In the 1st phase, about 20 drives were successfully organized in different parts of Mangalore thanks to the dedicated efforts & support of the volunteers, devotees and well-wishers. Now that we enter the 2nd phase of the Abhiyan we would appreciate if more & more volunteers join our brigade to help us realize our tryst with destiny. We hope interested public will utilize this unique opportunity to pay back to society by contributing their mite in the national regeneration.

India’s government is pledging $500,000, plus more in travel expenses, to the Art Institute of Chicago as part of a new professional exchange program between India and the museum.
India’s Ministry of Finance announced Thursday the establishment of the Vivekananda Memorial Program for Museum Excellence, which honors Swami Vivekananda, who gave a landmark speech about religious freedom at the first World’s Parliament on Religion, held Sept. 11, 1893, in the building that became the Art Institute.
“It’s a big commitment, and we’re very pleased and proud to be the first American museum to receive a grant from the government of India,” Art Institute Director Douglas Druick said Thursday. “It’s very exciting, and it opens new possibilities for our engagement with India and Indian culture.”
Art Institute spokeswoman Erin Hogan said in addition to $500,000 in grant money, the Indian government will cover significant travel and lodging expenses over four years as Art Institute staffers present lectures, workshops and seminars in India, and Indian fellows visit the Art Institute.
“The program involves teams of people traveling repeatedly to India and the United States,” said Hogan, noting that the museum will create four to six fellowships each year for Indian museum leaders and will serve as a resource center on best international practices in such areas as conservation; collection storage, display and expansion; visitor facilities and services; and multimedia content production and staff training.
The Art Institute will host Indian cultural and political leaders, including Minister of Culture Shri Pranab Mukherjee, at a ceremony Saturday evening in which the new program will be announced, the site of the Swami’s speech will be rededicated with a prominent plaque and a new exhibition on loan from the Indian government, “The Last Harvest: The Paintings of Rabindranath Tagore,” will be celebrated.
