At 11 in the morning, more than 85 students of Vikas institute were invited in a nearby very famous park on Ajit Road, with almost no information on why they were called or sent by their officials here. They were welcomed with an introductory activity where they had to introduce themselves with one adjective starting with the same letter of their name. Through such activity, they got familiar and felt a good vibe in the set up exhibited. Then Sadhvi Maithili Bharti Ji, the drug expert from Bathinda Centre of DJJS, Punjab threw a question upon the audience that ‘do you think that you are under influence?’ she further explained how these days ad world, trend of Bollywood and Hollywood have changed the way we think, react and make our decisions. She played activity ‘Bujho to Jaane’ to demonstrate how we under the influence of print media and electronic media make our choices and decisions which sometimes harms us to a greater extent. Therefore in the same manner, under the influence of our peers we make choices like trying a smoke, experiment with booze which lead us to be in the ‘addicted zone’ in 80% of the cases. Youngsters enjoyed the program and invited the organization at their institutes to throw more light on the subject of drug abuse and various concepts related to it.
