Students and faculty members from other departments were also invited to participate in the event. The initiative has received a great response and students have actively participated in all the events. Each competition was evaluated by a committee consisting of heads of various departments and selected a best presenter in each activity.
Students have created the awareness about cleanliness by expressing their views in the form of banners, posters, essays and paintings. They felt that, cleanliness is a duty of every individual in the form of personal cleanliness, organizational cleanliness, community cleanliness and hospital cleanliness. By keeping surroundings, home and organizations clean, mind and soul will be very active and all the works can be accomplished very effectively and efficiently. For the very existence of living beings, it is very essential to put a step towards cleanliness.
Come, let’s join our hands together to fulfill the dream of “Clean India” once seen by Mahatma Gandhiji and carried forward by Hon’ble Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modiji.
