Rapid responses are electronic letters to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on thebmj.com. Although a selection of rapid responses will be included online and in print as readers' letters, their first appearance online means that they are published articles. If you need the url (web address) of an individual response, perhaps for citation purposes, simply click on the response headline and copy the url from the browser window. Letters are indexed in PubMed.
India is transforming in all fields, including health care. India's movement on cleanliness (SwachhT Bharat) is giving good results. Open air defecation is almost removed by the Swachh Survekshan mission. So everyone here should make a pledge for good hygiene, better environment, and best healthy lifestyles with a plastics free, air pollution free, clean green healthy India, including Tamilnadu and my city, Tiruchirappalli.
