A Gesture of Great Humility: PM Modi Wash’s feet of Sanitation Workers at Prayagraj
Playing text to speech
It’s been a heartwarming gesture of Prime Minister Modi to wash the feet of sanitation workers in Prayagraj. The respect he showed and given to these workers is really commendable. As I haven’t seen any person at the respective post to do such kind of things. At a level, many people try to help lower class people financially, but no one tries to give respect publicly.
Every individual deserves respect whether he or she is rich or poor, but it is not in practice in our society. In contrast to this, the honorable Prime Minister of India has presented a great example world-wide that no one is beneath us. It is our responsibility to give respect to others.
Respect and acclaiming the effort is the greatest gift for a person and PM Modi did exactly the same. And addressed the public with saying, the clean Kumbh credit completely goes to the sanitation workers, who did such hard work for 24*7’. As well as, he cleaned the feet of five sanitation workers with his hands and addressed it with saying that, ’it would remain etched in his memory for the rest of his life’.
He felicitates the Swacchta Karmacharis and the volunteers and marked them as a great inspiration for the country. It is very true if few people can keep clean the area after a gathering of about 22 crores of the public in a period of 40-45 days, then why can’t the countrymen can learn something from this. We individually can take responsibility for our surroundings to keep it clean and forbid others from making our streets or mohallas dirty.
In India, washing feet’s of the worker is a familiar ritual for Christians. Every year, the day before Good Friday, priests wash the feet of 12 members chosen from the church. It commemorates Jesus Christ washing the feet of these people as an expression of his love for all. And teaches people, if your lord and teacher, have washed your feet, you should also wash another’s feet. Likewise, the father of the nation ‘Mahatama Gandhi’ use to do the same to pay his respect to people and don’t discriminate on the basis of caste, religion, or creed.
If the activity of washing-feet by Modi is considered as a unique event or as the beginning of the transformation of the society as Equal Citizenship. Then people should also follow it and respect all the workers instead of making them responsible for unclean streets, cities, and the locality. Learn to take responsibility on your own instead of blaming others.
