Khalsa College for Women (KCW) and Rotary Club-North today initiated a joint `Tree Plantation Drive’ at the College campus. The annual drive is the first of the rainy season for both the organizations as they harp upon a month-long plantation of the trees to safeguard the environment, facing large scale deforestation.
Khalsa College Governing Council honourary secretary Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina who was the chief guest at the program exhorted one and all to plant maximum plants this season. “Let us join hands to plant saplings to make the campus eco-friendly and greener”, he appealed as he praised the Rotary for donation of plants to the College.
He further added that it is time that we all pay heed to our surroundings and work to build a better planet and it is very important for each individual to plant at least one tree in his lifetime. “The trees represent prosperity, life, growth and beauty. The life on earth gets the maximum support from trees”, said he.
KCW Principal Dr.Surinder Kaur who welcomed the guest earlier also said that the trees exhale for us oxygen but the large scale deforestation all around is resulting in global warming. Rotary Club President Dr. Manjitpal Kaur Madaan thanked KCW management for giving them the opportunity to start their plantation drive. “This is the women’s college and we are proud to start this season’s plantation drive from heer”, she said.
More than 50 new saplings of different varieties including Papaya, Loquats, Guava, Sapodilla, Amaltas, Gulmohar, Sukhchain, Gulkeshia were planted. Rotary Club Asst Governor RS Khera, Club Secy. Sunita Bhasin, Dist . Secy. Dr. G S Madan, RS Chattha and other members of the club, apart from Prof. Jatinder Kaur, Prof. Manbir Kaur and others were present
