On Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary in October 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared his vision for an Open-Defecation-Free India. This book talks about the journey of an IAS officer who understood and leveraged the potential of the government, community and citizens through cleanliness. The true meaning of Swachh Bharat was seen as village after village transformed into a cleaner hub. Citizens took ownership to keep their village Open Defecation Free (ODF) through activities such as ‘Triggering’ and ‘Gandhigiri’. The struggles and triumphs in fulfilling the dream of ODF Gujarat are passionately narrated here. The book relates the tale of a renewed satyagraha through Swachhagraha. As we see a mother leading her toddler to squat on the toilet, we are sure the ‘luxury’ of toilet will become a ‘necessity’.
