‘Swachhata Pakhwada’ is being organized at ICAR-CIRB during 16-31st October, 2016. In this regard, an effort was made to further extend this effort and to sensitize the youth of villages adopted by CIRB under ‘Mera Gaon Mera Gaurav’ on 24th October, 2016. Quiz competition, slogan competition and extempore speaking competitions were organized in BRJD College, Badi Nyagal, village of Churu district of Rajasthan. In this event, about 100 students of science, commerce and arts streams participated.
Since, these students belonged to five adopted villages, the effort will be a boon to sensitize the youth about importance of ‘Swachhta’ of these villages. Students evinced keen interest in quiz competition and replied some of the questions related to ‘Swachhta Abhiyaan’. Beautiful slogans were also written by the students on importance of ‘Swachhta’. Students were also motivated to participate in extempore speaking on topics related to environment, cleanliness and other issues pertaining to ‘Swachhta’. The scientists of the institute also participated in cleanliness of classrooms of the college along with the students. Thus, the event was a grand success as the students were educated about the importance of cleanliness of their college, surroundings and their respective villages.
