Published: February 24 2015 12:50 am Related News What is the most innovative and nationally important development initiative Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched in his first nine months in office It is undoubtedly the Swachh Bharat mission No previous prime minister gave such high priority to something so basic as making India clean The mission has galvanised a large number of people and one hopes the government does not let its momentum slacken Every mass campaign needs inspiring icons — “brand ambassadors” being the corrupted commercialised term for them This is where the PM has done one thing right and one thing wrong He has commendably made Mahatma Gandhi the messenger of the mission No other leader in the modern history of the world gave as much importance to cleanliness and sanitation as Gandhiji did However Modi has also diluted the mission’s missionary character by naming sundry celebrities mainly from the fields of entertainment and sports as brand ambassadors They add zilch inspirational or practical value to the mission On the other hand revered personalities from India’s rich and diverse spiritual-cultural traditions who not only popularised but also practised the mantra of “Clean Outside Clean Inside” are hardly seen in the government’s Swachh Bharat campaign Share This Article Related Article One such venerable personality is Sant Gadge Baba (1876-1956) This peripatetic mendicant-saint from Maharashtra one of the greatest modern-day social reformers in India worked for and among the poorest of the poor (In 2010 the Maharashtra government launched a campaign for clean villages called the Sant Gadge Baba Gram Swachhata Abhiyan) For 50 long years from the time he left his home and family in 1905 until his death he wandered from village to village from town to town with a broom in hand his only other worldly possession being a small earthen pot he used to beg for food Baba an illiterate scholar who studied in the “University of Life” was a preacher par excellence He sang bhajans composed by Bhakti saints Sant Tukaram being his favourite Cleanliness is godliness he would retort when some people ridiculed him for mixing bhajans with broom-work The first thing he did after entering a village was to sweep the streets especially the streets of “untouchables’ quarters” singing songs interspersed with his signature slogan “Gopala Gopala Devakinandan Gopala” (Gopal is another name of Lord Krishna son of Devaki) People would join him and very soon the village would wear a clean look Thereafter usually after a common contributory meal that people of all castes and communities ate together he would gather the villagers for an interactive kirtan session of two-three hours at night His kirtans had a mesmerising and also belief-shattering effect on the audience For he would boldly challenge religious orthodoxy and people’s entrenched beliefs and behavioural modes on what constituted cleanliness and impurity morality and immorality faith and blind faith (He is at his unorthodox best in his last kirtan delivered in Mumbai on November 8 1956 just a month before his death; it is available at youtubecom/watchv=9N5v6eBizw) Baba who was born into the caste of washermen (parit) questioned discrimination on the basis of caste and gender “If God is the Father of all human beings and if He is kind and all-loving how can He be unkind towards some castes and kind towards others” he would ask Selfless and compassionate service of those in need is the highest form of religion he preached “God does not reside in temples masjids idols and places of pilgrimage He resides in the dwellings of the poor and the grief-stricken” Free of all metaphysical debates about god his simple message delivered in the culturally rich native language of the common people was that “Dharma means food for the hungry water for the thirsty clothing for the naked shelter for the homeless care for the sick education for the children of the poor love and protection for animals and birds hope for those in despair” Above all he insisted dharma means dissolution of the ego a precondition to experiencing the divinity in humanity As behoves any true saint his deeds matched his words Like Saint Francis he lived a life of voluntary poverty of an extreme kind The shirt he wore was a patchwork of pieces of torn old clothes used by others He had absolutely no attachment to money or life’s material comforts Yet donors small and big poured money into his charitable projects He built numerous dharamshalas goshalas schools and hostels for poor students and homes for destitute children in different parts of Maharashtra He fiercely attacked greed corruption exploitation through money-lending alcoholism superstitions animal sacrifice as a religious rite and other personal and social ills Ridiculing godmen who claimed to perform miracles he would say “Man himself is a great miracle Injustice in society is also a miracle How is it that the farmer who harvests gold in the form of food from the land has to starve This indeed is the strangest miracle” Thus the holistic ideal of cleanliness he propagated had physical ethical spiritual and social-reformist dimensions In this he had much in common with Mahatma Gandhi Like Gandhiji he treated patients of leprosy a dreaded and stigmatised disease those days He greatly respected the Mahatma describing him in his kirtans as a “devdoot” (an emissary of God) The respect was mutual Significantly Baba was also highly respected by BR Ambedkar The two met several times Baba handed over a dharamshala he had established in the temple town of Pandharpur to Ambedkar for his care Once in 1949 Ambedkar who was India’s law minister then came to know that Baba was unwell in Mumbai He rushed to see him Baba told him: “Why did you take the trouble of coming Your each minute is precious I am just a fakir You are the one occupying a position of high authority” Ambedkar’s reply is significant: “My authority as a minister Baba is short-lived Once the ministership goes the person has no authority Your authority as a saint is everlasting” It is not for nothing that the common people in India reverentially describe saints as “maharaj” Thus Baba is more popularly known as Sant Gadge Maharaj It is the unique greatness of Indian culture that the words baba and fakir are regarded as synonymous with “king” one who continues to rule over the hearts of common people long after he is dead To sustain the fervour of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and convert it into a successful social force we should seek inspiration from the lives of India’s venerated and most beloved saint-reformers like Gadge Maharaj Modi should popularise and project them as the icons of “swachh Bharat” and not celebrity brand ambassadors many of them men and women of straw who hanker after fame and fortune and leave no transformative influence on people Also following the footsteps of Gadge and Gandhi Baba the PM should expand the scope of Swachh Bharat to mean not only clean streets but also clean hearts clean minds clean institutions clean politics and clean governance After all many ills in our society including the lack of outer cleanliness are due to the growing lack of inner cleanliness The writer an aide to former PM AB Vajpayee runs the Mahatma
