It is not too much if the beauty of a city is measured by how clean it is. No matter how many schemes the government implements to make Chennai a Singhara Chennai, if one day the cleanliness work is not done, the situation will take a turn for the worse.
In the recently released film Nenjuku Neethi, the cleanliness workers have shown what would happen if they go on strike for a day. From a small village to a big city, the role of sanitation workers is very important in protecting the health of the people living there. But many of us forget that those cleaners are human beings just like us.

Chennai Corporation has a total of 15 mandals and 200 wards in an area of 426 sq km. A total of 17 lakh households collect garbage in the Chennai Corporation, which has a population of 78 lakh. A total of more than 10 thousand sanitation workers are engaged in sanitation work in Chennai. Cleaning works are carried out twice in Chennai Corporation. It starts at 11 pm and ends at 4 am in the main roads and streets of the city. After this in the morning they will go door to door to collect garbage.
In Chennai, garbage should be sorted into biodegradable and non-biodegradable garbage, many people are dumping garbage on the roads after the Corporation has announced several times that garbage should not be dumped on the roads. Especially, even though there are dustbins on every street starting from major roads, many people do not feel like throwing garbage in them.
But if we don’t carry out the cleaning work on that road the next morning, we scold those cleaning workers in our hearts. They stay awake all night and carry out cleanliness work so that we can travel on clean roads every morning. In this way, the Hindu Tamil Vektri Committee has traveled with them for a week and recorded the daily work of cleanliness workers who carry out cleanliness work at night in Chennai.
