By Staff Correspondent

DIBRUGARH, April 30 - Forest man and recipient of Padma Shri Award Jadav Payeng today advocated incorporating tree plantation in the academic curriculums of the state from the elementary school level, exhorting that saving ecosystem must be a responsibility of every single human being.

The environmental activist who shot to fame for single-handedly converting about 550 hectares barren sandbar of Brahmaputra river at Kokilamukh in Jorhat district into a lush forest, said that with thousands of trees being cut in Assam for various national projects, there was an urgent need to make up for the losses as soon as possible.

Payeng, also popularly called as �Molai� was addressing students of Dibrugarh University during the annual Auxesis event (the techno-cultural mega fest) of the Dibrugarh University Institute of Engineering and Technology (DUIET) today. Plantation drive was the first social initiative organised as part of the Auxesis event in the premises of the University and nearby schools in the presence of the famous environmental activist.

Payeng initiated the plantations by planting a few saplings. The event was attended, among others, by Jiten Hazarika, Dean of Student Affairs, Dibrugarh University, Mukul Chandra Bora, Director, DUIET, Niranjan Bora, Faculty Convener Auxesis, Dhrubo Jyoti Kalita, President, Dibrugarh University Post Graduate Student�s Union and other teaching fraternity of the university.

The Forest man, in his address, urged upon the youth to plant trees. �Tree plantation must become a habit of the present generation and it must be included in the academic curriculums from the elementary school level. Saving the ecosystem must become the responsibility of every single human being,� he said.

The Auxesis event this year will conclude on September 30. Events like street play, blood donation, Dibrugarh run, cultural exchange, robotics war, cube solving competition, battle of DJ etc., are some of the programmes lined up for the six-month-long event.
