We should not only be good but also motivate others to be and do good. If Mangalore is becoming cleaner day by day its because of the selfless dedication of group of volunteers. If virtuous can daringly move forward in the task of national rejuvenation, then only nation will improve. Groups like Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan can be befitting platforms for such youths who like to contribute towards nation.’
