Meghalaya boasts of the cleanest village in Asia. Walk through Mawlynnong village, along cobbled streets and you'll be in for a surprise. Not a speck of dust will be visible. And the secret behind the cleanliness? Beautification of the town is one of the primary chores. Hand-woven baskets, used as dustbins, lie outside every home. Cleanliness has become a ritual here and has been deeply ingrained even among the younger generations.
