Cleanliness is very important in our life in all aspects. We should take care of it all through life. The practice of cleanliness starts from home and school from a very little age. It affects us very badly when we do not maintain cleanliness. The following are some short and long speeches on cleanliness given by us. All the speeches on cleanliness will surely help students to take part in the speech recitation activity in the school or college at any event celebration or debate competition program.

Long and Short Speech on Cleanliness

Speech 1

Good morning to the sir, madam and my friends. My name is … I study in class … Today, I will recite a speech on cleanliness. I have specially selected this topic because of much importance of it in our daily lives. Actually, the means of cleanliness is the complete absence of dirt, dust, stains, and bad smells at home, working places or surrounding areas.

The most important purpose of maintaining cleanliness is to get healthy, beauty, remove offensive odor as well as avoid the spread of dirt and contaminants. We clean our teeth, clothes, body, hair on a daily basis in order to get freshness and achieving cleanliness.

Cleanliness

We use a variety of products and water to clean different things accordingly. What we see with our eyes is that cleaning helps us to remove dirt and bad odor. However, what we do not see with our eyes is that cleaning also removes harmful microorganisms (like bacteria, viruses, fungus, algae, etc) from the things. It keeps us healthy and away from a variety of diseases especially caused by harmful microorganisms. According to the germ theory of disease, cleaning means the total absence of germs. In some industrial processes, it requires exceptional cleanliness which is achieved especially in the clean rooms. The presence of dirt and bad odor may decrease the power of our immune system.

Commonly, there are two types of cleanliness, one is physical cleanliness and another is internal cleanliness. Physical cleanliness keeps us clean from outside and gives us a feeling of wellbeing with confidence. However, internal cleanliness keeps us mentally peaceful and away from anxiety. Internal cleanliness means a mind absence of dirty, bad and negative thinking. Keeping the heart, body, and mind clean and peaceful is the complete cleanliness. However, we also need to keep clean our surrounding areas so that we can live in a healthy and clean environment. It will keep us away from the epidemic diseases and give us the feeling of social wellbeing.

There is a very old saying that “cleanliness is next to godliness”. It is well said by John Wesley. Cleanliness should be given priority in all the homes from childhood so that a little one can practice it as a habit and can be benefitted all through life. Cleanliness is like a good habit which not only benefits a person, however; it benefits the family, society, and country and thus the whole planet. It can be developed at any age however best to practice it from childhood. I, as a child requesting to all the parents that please help your kids to practice this habit as it is you who can give this country a good citizen.

Thank You!

 

Speech 2

Good morning to the respected Principal sir, sir, madam, and dear colleagues. I … studying in class … I would like to speak about cleanliness at this event. Cleanliness is a good habit; it keeps us happy physically, mentally, socially and intellectually. It is very true that cleanliness begins at home. The sign of cleanliness is a well-managed place whether it is a home, working place, school, college, government or private buildings, hotel, restaurant, airport, railways station, etc. The level of cleanliness should be high which is possible if everyone shows his/her effort. It is not the act of one person. It needs regular support and proper understanding from the end of each person.

Cleanliness attracts positive energies towards it and it can impress anyone. Cleanliness level becomes generally high in developed countries because of the good citizens, strict government rules, high education level and proper understanding of the people. A person with good habits can change the environment of a home however a country with good citizens can change its future as well as the environment of the whole planet. In order to show our real potential all through the world, we have to maintain cleanliness all across the country. It is the only thing that can earn respect because a big land, power, and rich natural resources do not matter in the lack of cleanliness.

The maintenance of cleanliness in any country depends on the education level, poverty, and population of the country. The most important factor is education as good education can reduce the poverty level and provide relief from overpopulation. If the citizens of the country will be educated they can well maintain the cleanliness all through the country. They can pass good habits for the next generation also. A number of cleanliness drives have been run by the government of India however never get much success because of high-level illiteracy. The most recent cleanliness drive named as Swachh Bharat Abhiyan run the Indian PM, Narendra Modi, is quite successful.

It is a very serious topic and we have to maintain cleanliness in our country, which can be better started from our homes if we really want development in India. We have to understand that our country is our home and then no problem will be there. As being a citizen of the country, we all are responsible for cleaning any dirty place we see. We should keep our roads, tourist places, historical places, schools, colleges, office buildings, etc very neat and clean.

Thank You!

 

Speech 3

Good morning to the Principal mam, sir, madam, and my dear friends. I … studying in class … the standard would like to speech on cleanliness. I am very grateful to my class teacher that she has given me such a great opportunity to recite a speech on cleanliness at this event. My dear friends, we all are good people, no one is bad. Then why we are making our future bad and diseased by spreading dirty things and wastes everywhere. Our country is our home; we should not make it dirty. We get respect as an Indian abroad so our country is our identity on this planet. It is our responsibility to keep it clean and bright so that it can earn more respect worldwide.

We keep our homes clean then why not our schools, colleges, roads, offices, tourist places, stations, etc all through the country. We only remember that we have to clean a place where we live, which means a home only. But why we do not remember that our country is our main home. Our home is our identity within the country however our country is our identity outside the country means abroad. We are responsible citizens of it then we have to make it clean and no one else. In order to get respect from others, first, we have to respect our property and keep it clean.

We keep our homes and religious places clean and do not wear shoes or slippers inside so that they can be clean. But, on the other hand, we follow wrong practices and spit out on the roads, corners of office buildings, etc. We throw wastes on the roads or corners of the colony; what is this? I am asking what this is. I am not saying that I am only good or I never involved in such activities. I am just saying that how long we will be unconscious and involved in such type of unconscious activities. When the day will come, we will be much conscious every moment so that such bad activities cannot happen. If we are not trying to keep our country clean then how we will protect tourists from other countries from making it dirty.

I think none of the days is better than today. Today is the day when we should promise ourselves and our mother country that we will keep it clean forever and never make it dirty in the future. Just think that how bright our homes and whole country look at Diwali, what will happen if it looks daily. If the cleanliness only at Diwali can give us confidence, power and positive energy for the whole year, then again think that, can we not get power, confidence, positive energy, a healthy life, a healthy environment, and positive attitude of other countries worldwide forever.

Thank You.


 

Speech 4

Good morning to the Excellencies, Principal sir, sir, madam, and my dear friends. At this event, I would like to speak about cleanliness. I am very thankful to my class teacher that she has selected me to speech on cleanliness at this event. It is a serious topic and needs high-level social awareness. People in the developed countries (Western Europe and North America) never depend on the authorities sweeping as they never dirt their roads or surrounding areas. They do themselves on a daily basis. We too have to take such effective steps to clean our country. We should not wait for any authority sweeper that he/she will pick up the broom and clean our surrounding areas and roads.

First, we should not make public places dirty and if it happens, we have to clean it as only we are responsible. This responsibility needs to be understood by every Indian citizen. There is a need to change our mentality as only this can keep India clean. Lots of cleaning resources and measures cannot be effective enough to keep India clean until we change our mind that the whole country is like our home and we need to keep it clean. It is our property, not other’s. We need to understand that, a country is like a home in which various family members live in a joint family.

As we suppose that, things inside the home are our own property and we never make them dirty and spoil. In the same way, we need to suppose that, everything outside the home is also our own property and we should never make them dirty and keep clean. We can change the drastic situation of our country through collective ownership. Instead of infrastructure improvements, effective plants for wastes treatment from industries, agriculture, and other fields, laws, and rules by the government, etc; we need to think and consider our own responsibility using our own mind and effort. It is not the responsibility of the government only; it is the collective responsibility of each and every Indian citizen.

It is true that we cannot clean the whole country in a day or year, however; it will be our big hand if we stop making filthy the public places in India. It is our responsibility to stop ourselves as well as others who are making India’s public property filthy. As we generally see in our family that, every member has some particular responsibility (someone for sweeping, someone for cleaning, someone for bringing vegetables, someone for outside works, etc) and he/she has to do that time in any way. Just like that, if all the Indians take responsibility (of cleanliness and prevent from getting dirty) for small space in the surrounding areas, I think that the day is not so far when we will see cleanliness everywhere all through the country.

Before starting any cleanliness drive, we have to make sure that we have a clean mind first. Cleanliness is not only necessary to get a good impression from others; however, it is very important for a healthy mind, body, spirit, and environment. As we care for our bodies to be clean, we must care for our country too.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (or Clean India Mission) is a clean India drive run by the Government of India to cover around 4,041 statutory cities and towns of India to clean the roads, streets, and making better infrastructure of the country. We should respect and follow this national campaign and support it through every possible effort.

Thank You.
