In response to mounting heaps of garbage and filth in the residential lanes of P&T Colony, Kamla Nehru Nagar, Jodhpur, DJJS Jodhpur Centre planned an environment awareness walk and cleanliness drive in the area on 5 Jan 2020. Holding educational posters young Nature Conservators of DJJS Jodhpur, marched through the streets of the colony raising slogans of Nature conservation and calling out residents to join them in restoring the cleanliness and environmental health of the area. Alarmed by these environmental slogans, within minutes men, women, youth and children came out of their homes to witness the initiative.
Further a group of children performed a short street play unveiling the state of environment and dire need to restore it. Overwhelmed by the performance many local residents came forward to participate in the cleanliness drive which followed the performance. The cleanliness drive did not focus on one time cleaning of the area, however the initiative symbolized a life- long commitment of nature conservation which DJJS Nature Conservators sought from the locals.
This small initiative by selfless and committed volunteers of DJJS was highly appreciated by the residents. Their enthusiasm was witnessed in the pro- active participation they showed in a short awareness session organized at DJJS Jodhpur center post- cleanliness drive. Sadhvi Usha Bharti Ji, Coordinator DJJS Jodhpur center & disciple of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj ji, Head & founder, DJJS educated and encouraged locals to turn back to those small yet promising pro- environmental habits ingrained in traditional Indian living which not only ensured environmental health but also maintained human well- being. After this eye- opening session the locals pledged not only to maintain the cleanliness in the area but to adopt green habits to ensure sustainable nature conservation.
