As an ode to the Swacha Bharat Abhiyan, the Vibgyorites of Kolhapur decided on a rally to promote their duty towards the nation and create awareness for the upcoming VIVA 2014. With this thought, the teaching and the nonteaching staff of VIBGYOR, Kolhapur gathered together on 15 November 2014 at the appointed venue, the Railway station of the city dressed in blue jeans and white top/shirt. Armed with gloves, caps and the cleaning gear, the sporty troopers of VIBGYOR progressed from one center of the Kolhapur city to another. The short and snappy quotes like “HAMARA BHARAT, SWACHA BHARAT” and many more accentuated the entire movement holding the spectators with varied feelings of anxiousness, approbation or probably motivation.
The rally served more than its purpose, as the Principal Mr. T. Balan quoted, “This one day cleaning of dirt is just an iota of what we intended. What’s noteworthy is the message that we wished to convey to the commoners, and I’m glad we were successful in our bit in stirring minds and create an awakening”.
Thus we not only taught our kids to maintain hygiene, but did the cleaning ourselves and enthused many others to do the same. Everybody from the Principal to the ancillary staff actively participated in it. Now this is exactly how we lived up to the emotion;“Good things indeed start from home”.
