School off Dergaon town embarks on greening drive

By Correspondent

DERGAON, Aug 24 - A plantation drive was undertaken by Jyoti High School at Laubhoga, 9 kms off Dergaon town on Wednesday.

Saplings of different varieties, including fruits and medicinal plants were planted along the entrance and premises of Jyoti High School.

The plantation programme was organised under the aegis of Sankari Sanskriti Kendra and Kendriya Gramya Puthibhoral, Laubhoga in association with Jyoti High School in sync with the 72nd birthday of retired Dean of Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat and Registrar of Srimanta Sankardev University, Nagaon, besides a writer and office-bearer of Srimanta Sankardev Sangha, Dr Ratul Chandra Bora. The programme was sponsored by the former Dean.

The programme was initiated by the Brand Ambassador of Swachh Bharat Mission for North East States (NAMASTE) and the secretary of AASHRAY, an organisation working for environmental conservation Sanjoy Kumar Hazarika by planting a sapling in the school premises. The planted sapling was later handed over to Pranamika Kalita, an eight standard student of the school to tend till she passes the HSLC examination.

An awareness meeting was also held with social worker Puranjay Goswami in the chair. Delivering his speech in the meeting, Dr Ratul Chandra Bora urged the students to make friendship with trees and bring up trees for the betterment of mankind. He also underlined the need of reading books by the students.

Addressing the gathering as distinguished guest, Sanjoy Kumar Hazarika urged the students to strive towards a clean and green India, which was the dream of the Father of the Nation.

Citing the example of nine-year-old Manipur girl Elangbam Valentina Devi, who has been nominated as Brand Ambassador by the Manipur Government for a �Green Manipur� for her dedicated service towards plantation and conservation of environment from the age of one year, he urged the students to emulate her example.

Earlier, the Headmaster of the school Bimal Chandra Dutta explained the objectives of the programme while teacher Cheniram Sarmah Shastri started the meeting with a mangalacharan. The meeting accorded a warm felicitation to the Dean and the Brand Ambassador.

The meeting was also attended by Sriram Bora, Jogen Bora and Dipak Rajkhowa, among others. The meeting finally ended with a vote of thanks by teacher Abdul Malik.
