ASSEMBLAGE OF GCCBAians MARKS DIWALI
Where students close to a hundred gathered on a sunny autumn morning, a rally was carried out by the college environment society ‘AVNI’ in association with the NSS unit on Nov 1st 2013. The rally begun with the speech by the Principal Madam Mrs Manjit kaur followed by a flag off by HOD Madam Dr. Rosy Walia. The rally witnessed a throng of zealous youth who left no stone unturned to sensitize people about the ill effects of bursting crackers. A host of slogans like ‘Diwali hum manayenge patakhe nahi chalayenge’ and the likes accompanied by decorative posters which conveyed messages like ‘Noise free Diwali, Light hearts not crackers’ portrayed the ardent devotion and fervor of the students towards making our environment into a healthy place to live in. To guide students, the teachers of the college too tagged them along.
The march covered the residential areas of sector-42 where onlookers, both old and young, watched the students inquisitively where a few even promised to go by the ethics and message which the rally wanted to put forth.
The sequence was succeeded by the students who distributed sweets and other food items to children from the khajeri village, Sector-50, slum area, college new construction site.
The whole idea of the program was to illustrate to the society as to what could be done for its upliftment except for merely lighting crackers. The tread finally haulted at the college with both students and faculty, contended with their share of onus towards protecting the environment.
