A small village in the north-eastern Indian state of Meghalaya has become the envy of its neighbours.
crowds of visitors have been thronging to the village curious to find
out why Mawlynnong has earned the reputation for being arguably the
cleanest and best educated in India - all its residents can read and
write and each house has a toilet.
is no mean achievement in a country that is still struggling to educate
its population and address basic water and sanitation issues.
Mawlynnong is much loved by its inhabitants who work hard to keep it clean.
