It is true that Man has borrowed its life from Earth. We are tenants and hence our moral responsibility to maintain the eco system on earth. If flora and fauna on Earth lives, we live or else the future looks bleak. This thought was the motivating factor behind organising a ‘GEOTALK’ on the occasion of Earth Day celebrated every year on 22nd April.
Inculcating the values of environmental sensitivity in Jaipurians, has been the motto of Seth Anandram Jaipuria School from the very beginning and now when the school is associated with different projects launched by the Environment Ministry, it has become one of the most important issues on which the school is working vociferously .Keeping this faith, a debate was organised for classes IX to XII on Thursday,19thApril.To develop sensitivitytowards the depleting environment around us, studentsthrough a variety of topics like …Global Warming, e-waste, deforestation, overpopulation, pollution and industrialisation, shared their concern and found a platform for their thoughts.
Students participated house wise and advocated strongly and passionately, the effects of the deteriorating environment on earth. Statistics were shared and the alarm sounded for the young generation to ponder ‘how to keep Earth alive and themselves too.
Principal cum Director ma’am Ms. Manju Rana also shared her views by giving an inspirational speech about how to inculcateenvironmental sensitivity in one’s daily routine. She talked about various ways to conserve the resources by adopting activities like planting trees, saving water, saving electricity, being a thinker and finding innovative ways to solve the contemporary problems discussed in GEOTALK. She laid emphasis was on the principle of 3R’s – Reuse, Recycle and Reproduce.
The poetic lines sum it all !!!
Paradise won or paradise lost?
Your effort is what it will cost
To keep our precious earth clean
By living a lifestyle that’s green.
We cannot go on as we are
Leaving scar after scar
Upon this beautiful planet
Which so many take for granted.
The time to take action is now,
To restore what’s been damaged somehow.
We stand on the brink of “too late,”
But there’s still time to change our fate.
Plant a sapling before its too late.
