MAWLYNNONG is the cleanest village of Meghalaya India.

Today if I asked for anybody in India. Which is the cleanest village in India and Asia? Most of the people do not know the answer to this question, it is ok, but most of the Indian people never think of this type of cleanliness they found in the village of India.

All we educated people to know everything about hygiene and cleanliness but we forget that important lesson in normal life. That we live in a beautiful country and it is our responsibility for the cleanliness of our nearby surroundings, but we thought the government will take care of this because we pay taxes that kind of selfishness, hypocrisy & ego we most of the Indian have.

That is why small countries like Taiwan, Hongkong, Singapore, Malaysia, Canada, Dubai do better than us, and when we will travel to such small countries than we feel how dirty our countries and governments can’t do anything. This kind of mindset we develop in our selves even though we learn about hygiene & cleanliness lessons from our childhood.
Welcome To ‘The Cleanest Village In India’ The East Khasi Hills, Hills of Meghalaya also referred to as ‘God’s own garden’ has won the acclaim of being the cleanest village in Asia in 2003.

Meghalaya is one of the seven small states of India’s remote northeast region and home to the “Cleanest Village in India.” The mountain road climbs to Mawlynnong, at an altitude of 5,000 feet, giving way to Bangladesh farther south.
About this village in 2014, there are about 95 households in Mawlynnong approx 700-800 mix of Man, Women, Children, and old people and the literacy rate is 90%.

The people residing in the community are Khasi people. The population is mostly Christian and the village has three churches.

Their main occupation is agriculture. Betel nut being the main crop of this village or region. During summers, one can find pineapples and lychees which are then exported to the nearby regions as well.
Today Mawlynnong is known for its cleanliness worldwide. The main question comes in my mind if this village person not very filthy rich so how can they do this kind of job cleanliness or the government support them.

But my friends these people not very well educated but they have the determination to work for their village to clean that kind of motive and passion change the economics of this village.

Every day in the morning the wastes are collected in the dustbins made of bamboo, directed to a pit, and then used as manure.

A community initiative mandates that all residents should participate in cleaning up the village.

Smoking and the use of polythene are banned while rainwater harvesting is encouraged.

The travel magazine Discover India declared the village as the cleanest in Asia in 2003, and the cleanest in India in 2005.

This reputation has boosted local tourism; in 2017 according to the village headsman, incomes had increased by 60 percent due to increased tourism.
They have a very beautiful ritual as is the tradition of the Khasi people, in Mawlynnong property and wealth are passed from the mother to the youngest of her daughters, who also keeps the mother’s surname.

Mawlynnong proves that women empowerment and 100 percent literacy rate, both are achievable. Extending warm hospitality to their guests also happens to be one of the most well-known qualities of the natives of Mawlynnong.
