One tree can start a forest,
One smile can begin a friendship.
One hand can lift a soul,
One word can frame the goal.
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One laugh can conquer gloom
One life can the difference
Van Mahotsav is annual tree planting festival in India. This movement was initiated in the year 1950 by India’s union Minister for Agriculture, Kulpati Dr K. M Munshi. It has gained immense national importance and every year millions of saplings are planted all across India in observation of the Van Mahotsav week.
In the same theme, Vivekanand society for social service came to our school premises and donated 100 saplings under their “Go Green Campaign”. A small ceremony was organized for handing over of sapling wherein ceremony started with a song filled with significance of trees in human life. After that an enactment of mime was presented by students of VIII–B depicting how destruction of nature will lead to the destruction of civilization.
All the students pledged to plant 5 saplings every year and refrain from doing anything which causes harm to nature and create awareness about it to the best of their ability .The program ended with the vote of thanks and commemorative photograph.Thus the vanmahotsav month ended on a happy note.
