School students dance to tune of 'Go Green'

Image

As many as 1,000 students - 100 fom each of the 10 schools - in and around the city danced: not for a cultural programme or an entertainment show, but with the intention to sensitising the masses to the importance of preserving the planet earth from the impact of global warming, polluting factors, particularly use of plastics.

The ‘Go Green' a mega dance event organised jointly by the Nartana, Vibration Media and Ilanthalir provided an opportunity to students to contribute and dedicate their talent towards conservation of ecology. Attired in eye-catching costumes, students gave their performance, in consonance with songs on environmental protection played through public address system.

While the students from the Cauvery Girls' Higher Secondary School highlighted the importance of the Himalayas, the pupils from Sri Sivananda Balalaya gave a performance in ‘kolattam' on the significance of planet earth's. Fast-paced steps were witnessed in a few other groups. Students from Jayendra Matriculation school brought out the efficacy of 'thulasi' while the pupils from Sankara Matriculation School underlined the need for preserving the ozone layer.

Students from SBIOA Higher Secondary School, MAM High School; Kamala Niketan; AKKV Higher Secondary School; Savithri Vidhyasala Higher Secondary School also participated.

A compact disc “aaduvom kondaduvom” comprising 60 songs was released by Rev. Fr. A. Susai Alangaram, director of Ilanthalir, and the first copy was received by S.A. Chandra Mohan, director of Vibration Media. M.A. Maluk Mohamed, principal of M.A.M. College of Engineering, said it was high time that students were sensitised to the importance of planting saplings to increase the green cover in our planet. He also spoke on the efficacy of tapping renewable energy, an eco-friendly exercise which has proved to be an economic initiative at his college. P. Mohan, president of Tamil Nadu state youth and students exnora; J. Jaichandran, secretary of Tamil Nadu state youth and students exnora, said that it was high time that the Cauvery was protected for the benefit of posterity.

Rev. Fr. S. Dhanapragasam, president of Depressed people's welfare association; Mahadevan, administrative officer, Samad higher secondary school; Sangeetha, director of Nartana and C. Balasubramanian, district president of Exnora, spoke.

Tiruchi losing its green cover

Great loss:Trees that were cut along West Boulevard Road in Tiruchi.


TIRUCHI: The city's sparse green cover has come under immense pressure over the past few months as trees along several arterial roads and the suburbs continue to be felled by various agencies for road development.

Trees on West Boulevard Road, an arterial road in the city, are the latest casualties to the mindless attack. The Tiruchi Corporation which recently removed three temples along the road as part of an encroachment eviction drive has started cutting down trees, apparently to widen the road. Already about half-a-dozen trees have been felled and sources told ‘The Hindu' that the civic body has written to the revenue authorities seeking permission for cutting down other trees along the road. This would entail mowing down several other huge shade-giving trees along the road.

The Corporation plans to blacktop the road ‘end-to-end,' a much-touted concept by the civic body in recent days. Trees become the first and immediate casualties in this approach. Thillai Nagar Main Road and many cross roads in the posh locality, East Boulevard Road and few other places have been shorn off their tree cover. Already, scores of trees have been removed for the four-lane projects around the city.

Though the Corporation often promises to compensate for the green cover lost, it has so far failed to live up to its word. A greening drive initiated by the District Exnora in association with the Corporation along Shastri Road was abruptly stopped within a couple of days of its launch. A few saplings planted along the road were pulled out and pits dug for the purpose were closed with concrete, reportedly under instructions from local political bigwigs. Roadside trees were often used as convenient shelters, it was contended. But many see it as a specious argument.

However, most civic activists maintain that they were not opposed to road development but only seek a balanced approach. “We are not opposed to widening the roads. But cutting trees should be the last resort and should be done only if it was completely essential on a case-to-case basis,” says M. Sekaran, Convenor, Federation of Consumer and Service Organisations. He points out that in many places such as East Boulevard Road cutting trees has not resulted in any improvement. Moreover, the additional space created was used for parking goods vehicles or by shopkeepers for extending their space. In some places, trees have been cut without obtaining the mandatory permission from the authorities, he claimed.

C. Balasubramanian, honorary secretary, District Exnora, maintains that they were not against cutting trees for widening roads but insists that the Corporation should adequately compensate for the trees lost.

The widening of Thillai Nagar Main Road has been helpful for motorists, but in some other places the very purpose of cutting trees has been defeated as the additional space is occupied by roadside vendors or used as parking area. The Corporation, he suggests, should take up planting of saplings in a big way at chosen places.

Corporation officials say that roads that are to be developed under the Tamil Nadu Urban Road Infrastructure Project have provisions for creating green space and the situation will be rectified soon.
