A collaborative initiation for a mass effect in regard of natural resources and reusable products as well as recycling activities has been launched by the students of Ramdeo Baba College. A message was spread on May 25, at Vishnuji ki Rasoi in the form of an open mic and a workshop encouraging not just the plantation but even taking care of the sapling until it is able to grow on its own.
Kagaz, is an organization which is built having a dual motive of bringing up the hidden and underground poets in the city and at the same time making people aware about the need of trees in nature and a strong position the trees hold in our ecosystem, says Anurag Tiwari a senior member of Kagaz.
Tiwari himself being an active poet, he has experienced the malpractices which are even being sold to both the audiences and the performer at the same time. The event companies leech the performer in the name of, what they call a performance fee and even extort the audiences charging them an entry fee. We here at Kagaz want to give an opportunity to the ones who deserves it and totally for free of cost as it would be wrong to the artist if he cannot perform just because he is unable to pay, Tiwari said.
The first event by Kagaz is done for a social cause and to bring a positive outcome through the words of the poets performing in open mic. Shivrai Nandini Shashank, another active member of Kagaz suggests to plant the trees that have a purpose in the eco system and are not just planted to showcase the surrounding, that being said the most effective plants or trees are of Tulsi and Neem, as a matured Neem tree produces enough oxygen for a family of four.
The audiences were seen in numbers and each one was provided with a sapling already planted in coconut shell.
The idea is to decrease the pollution as much possible and for that you have to be the change that you want see, says Abhishek Paliwal who came up with several ideas of reusing the available material and reducing the carbon footprints. Palliwal even suggests soaking a jute rope in a plastic bottle and shove the other end in the soil nearby a plant , this will help the soil being moist the whole time which will ultimately help the plant to grow and spread its roots to the higher extent. You can also try spreading a web formed by the jute ropes from a single bottle to use drip irrigation on a large scale and in its natural form.
