Clean, green celebrations at Samayapuram

The annual Chithirai Perunthiruvizha of Samayapuram Arulmigu Mariamman Temple was held in its usual grandeur. The highlight of the 10-day festival was the pulling of the decorated car on the final day on Tuesday.

Although thousands of devotees from various parts of the State participated in the car festival as usual, what made the celebrations different this year was the government departments in association with the voluntary organisations took the lead in taking care of the health and hygiene aspects and utilising the opportunity on creating awareness on the same.

Usually, the hygiene takes a backseat on such occasions posing a threat to the public health. A large number of people gathering at a place during summer can cause outbreak of epidemics such as cholera and chicken pox if attention is not paid to the sanitation and hygiene. Bacterial and viral infections erupt because of open defecation and urination, scarcity of protected drinking water, and humid weather.

The district administration, the Department of Town Panchayats and the Samayapuram Kannanur Town Panchayat came up with a well laid out health norms were strictly adhered to by all concerned during the festival days.

The Tamil Nadu Food Safety and Drug Administration Department (Food Safety Division), Tiruchi district, played a key role in checking the sale of outdated mineral water bottles, sachets, food packets, cold drinks, and other eatables. Led by Dr. A. Ramakrishnan, Tiruchi district designated officer, a team of block-level Food Safety Inspectors kept a close watch on the shops and hotels situated in and around Samayapuram temple and the temporary ones which sprang up during the festival days.

In coordination with the S. Kannanur Town Panchayat officials, they seized a large quantity of stale food and destroyed them.

The philanthropists make it a point to provide free food to the devotees during the festival days. Marriage halls are hired to prepare and supply food to the devotees. The Food Safety Department team along with the NSS volunteers of the colleges conducted surprise inspection of marriage halls and so on to ensure that the food was prepared in a hygienic manner. The food brought from other parts of the district was allowed to be distributed only after a thorough check by these teams.

The S. Kannanur Town Panchayat provided basic infrastructure to meet the demand of the visiting devotees. It installed water tanks at 75 points and supplied chlorinated drinking water round the clock.

While temporary toilets were set up in 10 points, mobile toilets were in place in half a dozen points. Temporary bus stands were set up, so also taxi stands.

The Youth Exnora International, Tiruchi, created awareness among the devotees on protecting environment by getting rid of plastic bags and so on. In association with the environment division of the Public Works Department, the Youth Exnora organised a special photo exhibition at a temporary venue near the Samayapuram temple arch. Photographs depicting natural environment, the impact of plastic bags and so on in polluting the environment, water sources and so on were displayed. The exhibition evoked good response, says P. Mohan, State president of the Youth Exnora International.

Besides, in association with the members of the Students Exnora unit of the Bharathidasan University Constituent College, Lalgudi, it carried a special campaign. The student volunteers distributed non-oven bags to the devotees after collecting the plastic bags they were carrying.

The people were encouraged to deposit the plastic articles with the Exnora unit and they were given coupons. Gold coins and other prizes would be given to them by conducting lucky draw of the coupons.

The project evoked a good response as more than 5,400 coupons were distributed, says Mr. Mohan.

Samayapuram temple area has been declared a plastic-free zone by the district administration and this was brought to the notice of the devotees by the Exnora by pressing into a mobile van and by displaying giant banners enroute to the temple.

“It was a rewarding experience and we enjoyed it. People themselves volunteered to deposit the plastic bags and other articles with us and collect the cloth bags. We will be happy to participate in similar campaigns regularly,” says P. Parthiban, member of the Students Exnora unit of Bharathidasan University Constituent College.

The initiative of the government agencies and voluntary organisations has come in for appreciation from all quarters. This strategy should be adopted in each and every event where people converge in large numbers, says V. Raghuraman, Pathologist of Dr. Varley’s Laboratory and Research Institute.

The health authorities should check the quality of water used in preparing summer juices, as bacterial contamination of water can cause throat infection and also adopts hygienic methods in hand wash, disposal of used plates and so on, Dr. Raghuraman says.

World record attempt to muffle sound of plastic

Image

Adopting ‘lets mute the sound of plastic’ as their maxim, students of J.J. College of Engineering and Technology, creatively used a manufacturing engineering technique to say no to plastics while simultaneously vying a chance to enter the Limca Book of Records.

A total of 500 students from the college made 6, 246 paper bags in 30 minutes in an attempt to set a world record, recently.

The paper bag campaign titled TUTE was organised by Swayam, the Entrepreneurship Development Cell of the college.

Although the original target was 5,000 paper bags, students surpassed the number by a wide margin.

The feat was accomplished by employing a manufacturing engineering process – the moving assembly technique, said event coordinator S.Nadaraja Pillai. The production process was defined in ten steps.

The world record attempt was a move to encourage the use of paper bags, according to S. Sathiyamoorthy, principal, JJCET.

A. Ramakrishnan, designating officer, food safety and drug administration, S. Kowsalya Devi, headmistress, Government Higher Secondary School, Inamkulathur and S.Anabrasan, deputy headmaster, comprised the jury who witnessed the attempt. The record attempt has been submitted to the Limca Book of Records for certification.

A greening drive that has not failed to bear fruit

Forest Department supplies and plants seedlings in institutions and offices free of cost

When the State Forest Department in association with Tamil Nadu State Pollution Board embarked on a massive sapling planting campaign of fast growing tree species, outside the forest area, in connection with Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s birthday celebrations last year, few would have expected the tremendous result the programme has produced. Generally, mass seedling planting campaigns turn out to be just rituals, where, after the first few weeks, the seedlings are left to wither. However, a year after its launch, the campaign has changed the face of some dry pockets of the district with green shoots making their presence felt in full bloom.

The highlight of the initiative is that the Forest Department will supply and plant tree seedlings in institutions and offices free of cost with the entire expenditure borne by the State government. Even private institutions and establishments have been covered under the project.

A total of 1.60 lakh seedlings were planted in the district in a phased manner commencing from February 24, 2012. While 45,219 seedling were planted on the premises of government offices, about 55,200 in educational institutions, 22,080 in industrial areas, 16,555 in private premises, 5,258 along State and National Highways, and 15,663 in other places.

“We did not just stop with planting the seedlings. Special teams monitored the watering and growth of these seedlings . It is not just the government departments that showed enthusiasm in protecting the saplings, but the industrial houses, educational institutions, and voluntary organisations too extended full support in seeing that the saplings were properly nurtured. Thanks to their cooperation, the district has recorded 80 per cent survival rate,” says a proud N.Sathish, District Forest Officer.

The survival rate is somewhat considered to be an impressive one, taking into consideration the failure of monsoon, non-availability of water in river Cauvery, and the drought situation in the entire delta region . The identification of right places with soil fertility also played a key role in its success.

Encouraged by the success, the forest department has targeted to plant 2.03 lakh seedlings in the non-forest areas during the current year. Twenty species, including neem, banyan, badam, poovarasu, iluppai, punnai, vengai, and magizham have been identified. The department has already raised seedlings at its nursery farms across the district. In the first phase, 6,500 seedlings will be planted from February 23 to 28. Rest of the 1.96 lakh seedlings will be planted after the onset of southwest monsoon. It has been planned to plant 5,000 seedlings on the road sides and parks. The identification of the sites is in progress, Mr.Sathish said.

N.R.Sivapathy, School Education Minister, inaugurated the campaign at a function held on the river Coleroon bank near Srirangam on Saturday, in the presence of Jayashree Muralidharan, Collector, I.Anwardeen, Conservator of Forests, and Sathish, DFO. Speaking on the occasion, the Minister said that all care will be taken for ensuring the success of the programme. Security personnel would be appointed to ensure regular watering and proper nursing of the species throughout the year.

Tree guards will be set up wherever needed to protect the saplings from cattle.

This is a worthy scheme and trees outside forest area will provide multiple benefits, says V.Sundararaju, former Indian Forest Service officer.

They will help in maintaining the ecology, checking pollution, providing clean air, besides recharging the groundwater.

Campaign to improve cleanliness in places of tourist attraction

Image

The Tourism Department has joined hands with the civic administration to take up a campaign to improve cleanliness in places of tourist attraction.

Eighteen garbage bins, acquired at a cost of Rs.94, 000 by the department, to be placed in the heritage town of Srirangam, were handed over to the Tiruchi Corporation on Tuesday. Collector Jayashree Muralidharan formally handed over the bins to the Corporation Commissioner V.P.Thandapani and also flagged off a rally to sensitise people on the need to maintain public cleanliness in the town.

While the administration was taking steps to prevent the use of plastic products among commercial establishments, members of the public should come forward to give up the use of non-degradable plastics. About 300 students of Bishop Heber College, J.J.College of Engineering and State Institute of Hotel Management and Catering Technology participated in the rally from the Amma Mandapam to the Rajagopuram in Srirangam.

R.Dhandapani, Tourism Officer, and other officials were present.
