A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be making a small speech on the topic ‘Cleanliness is Next to Godliness’.
This is an age-old adage that I am sure all of you here are familiar with. Why is this so? Because it is an important lesson to be learned by all of us right from childhood.
Cleanliness is a virtue to uphold. It does not refer to just cleaning up dirt and dust on the surface level of material objects or of our premises, although that is of equal importance as well. One should always keep not just their homes clean this way but also their surroundings, their body, and their mind. Cleanliness pertaining to these aspects, as the saying rightly decrees, is second only to godliness.
Be hygienic! Think pure thoughts! Be clean, both bodily and in the mind!
