India’s business titan Anand Mahindra is inspired by the transformation of the city of Indore as the cleanest city and considers this as his Monday motivation.

The business leader expressed his thoughts over Indore emerging as India’s cleanest city and its efforts to become “India’s most silent city” as well. “Decades ago, I met my wife while I was making a student film in Indore. The city was then unattractive & dirty. The city’s transformation is miraculous & proves that ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way!’ More power to you, Indore; You’re my #MondayMotivaton,” he tweeted.

Indore, the cleanest city

Rajkot in Gujarat clinched the second spot in the second-quarter results. Surat bagged the third position in Gujarat in the first quarter and Navi Mumbai in Maharashtra in the second quarter, as per media reports.

According to the Swachh Bharat official website, the cities were awarded as a part of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan or Clean India Mission that acknowledged the cleanest cities in India every quarter.
