The students spoke about planting more trees, saving water and using cycles as far as possible and even walking. They opined that minimizing the use of vehicles will also help in curbing air pollution. Two children recited poems and a teacher sang a song based on Rabindra Sangeet on the beauty of nature with the flowers gently swaying in the breeze. Plants from the department of Environment were brought free of cost and these were planted in the patch of garden of Sanjay Colony and also in pots. The children were happy and active, cleaning the garden removing the plastic bags, digging soil, watering plants and removing the plant cuttings etc. The students were told to adopt each of the trees they planted and it was their duty to water and take care of the plants. Trees of Jamun, Ashoka, flowering plants etc. were planted.
