PUNE: The students of Goel Ganga International School participated in the palkhi procession with the aim of generating awareness and spreading the message of Hygiene and Cleanliness. The students distributed seed bombs to pilgrims so that they can throw it on their route to Pandharpur which will help grow greener cover.

Seven groups of students, from grade VI to X staged street plays along the route and generated awareness among devotees about the significance of maintaining the environment and surroundings clean by not resorting to littering on the roads. The students guided and helped devotees to throw garbage in the dustbins provided.

Speaking on the initiative Sonu Gupta, Trustee of GGIS said, "During our last two years of service to warkaries, we had observed that due to unavailability of proper disposal facilities leading to cleanliness issues during wari. Hence, this year we concentrated on cleanliness along the holy route. Also, following our green initiatives we created seed bombs of various seeds like Jamun, ".

The students were stationed at important points, along the route, guiding the warkari's and requesting them to keep the entire route of the procession clean. With the support from the Municipal Corporation, arrangements of dustbins and mobile toilets were made available along the route this time.

The students along with Principal Bharti Bhagwani, Vice Principals, Activity Coordinator and teachers took part in the activity.
