Swachh Bharat ho apna, Yahi hamara sapna
Indians believe that, ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’. It has been ingrained in us since childhood to keep the environment clean. However increasing population coupled with pollution has taken a toll on our sense of hygiene and sanitation. There is a strange display of apathy from a wide section of society towards this important cause. Illiteracy plays a major role in shirking civic responsibilities, but surprisingly it is the literate urban citizens too who add to the already existing filth.
To lend a sincere seriousness to this massive problem, the students of MET Rishikul
Vidyalaya put up a wonderful street play with a view to create awareness and ensure a clean present and future. The play was strategically performed on 1st September 2017 at King Circle, Tejookaya Park Ganeshotsav pandals, festivities being around the places were very crowded and attracted much attention. Local corporator Nehal Shah graced the occasion that boosted the morale of MRV students performing the play. Based on United Nations Sustainable Goals Number 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation and Goal Number 12 - Production and Consumption with Responsibility, the plays were well appreciated and well received. Lastly the students included Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan i.e. the Clean India Campaign that conveyed the message very effectively.
Young MRV students were lauded and appreciated for their great performance and effectively communicating a sensitive societal messages pertaining to pollution, awareness and sensitivity towards the environment.
