Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, under its "My Earth My Responsibility" campaign, has been conducting workshops, seminars, exhibitions, etc. at various schools, colleges, educational institutions and public places in Ludhiana for the past year and half to make people cognizant of their responsibilities towards the environment. Continuing its activities under the same campaign, sansthan set up an exhibition and awareness counter at Shifaly International School situated at Rahon Road, Ludhiana on 5th and 6th May.
MEMR Nature Conservator and disciple of H.H. Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, Ravi Kumar discussed the shortage of freshwater resources as well as depletion of groundwater in the city with the students. He said, “It is not only the responsibility of government to ensure that all people have access to basic infrastructure, but it is also the responsibility of people to ensure that they do not waste resources making it unavailable for some sections of society”. Experts reveal that 700 litres of water could be saved every day if people start using water cautiously. Narrating his own story of transformation towards pro- environmental living after joining the campaign, Mr. Kumar motivated students to adopt simple changes in daily living and make a remarkable contribution towards conservation of nature.
The sensitization session was followed by an interactive and educative walk through the specially designed DJJS water exhibition. Later, the students and teachers hit the awareness counter to seek answers to their queries and understand ways in which they fulfil their environmental responsibility.
Sensitized and motivated to shoulder their responsibility towards earth many students conveyed their intent to join the My Earth My Responsibility movement of Sansthan. Moreover, Mrs Rozi Jain, Principal and Sh. Vishal Jain, Director of the school expressed their willingness to participate and support the campaign in all possible ways.
