Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
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.
