Haridwar, October 14

To inculcate awareness among younger generation about the effects of global warming on the earth, a painting competition was organised here today. Organised by the Jawaharlalal Nehru Youth Centre at Ranipur-BHEL, more than 100 school students participated in the painting competition.

Students portrayed their thoughts about air-water-sound pollution, global warming, green house gas emission, river pollution, effluents flowing from industries into the Ganga river and sapling plantation drives among others in their paintings.
Former Uttarakhand Women Commission Chairperson Dr Santosh Chauhan stressed on the need of having co-curricular activities for students as it imbibed in them creativity and competitive spirit.
Chauhan added that the Jawaharlal Nehru Youth Centre, since its beginning in 2005 in Haridwar, had been doing commendable work to indulge the youth in various fields. The centre was the vision of former Chief Minister Narayan Dutt Tiwari whose role was pivotal in establishing this centre on the Bhagat Singh intersection, Ranipur.
Literary personality and former principal of Shravan Nath Math Jawaharlal Nehru College PS Chauhan lauded the efforts of the Jawaharlal Nehru Youth Centre in indulging students in such positive activities.
He said by spreading awareness among students regarding social issues like environment conservation, they were making their future bright, as this generation would make sure that degradation of environment was not done.
Tanvi Rawat, a student, remarked that effluents being poured into the river must be stopped and also trees being cut for the upcoming highway expansion on Haridwar-Dehradun stretch should not be done or new trees should be planted in lieu of several trees being cut for the fourlaning of highway.
