Rebirth of a Beautiful Thought…
Our Environment and Natural habitat play an instrumental role in our lives. From the beautiful blue sea’s to the amazing blue skies, the resources provided by nature are an asset worth preserving. They make up almost 90% of the composition of the earth and they are very old. If we assume our planet as a reference, then Humans are the newest concept in the history of our planet. Civilizations after civilizations have been flourishing, degrading and rejuvenating themselves throughout the course of our short ordeal. Therefore, evaluating the present state of our environment from one of the many aspects of our planet, we find that,
“The global transport sector accounts for almost one-quarter of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions and this proportion is rising. Air pollution emissions from transport have been linked to nearly 400,000 premature deaths. Almost half of all deaths by air pollution from transport are caused by diesel emissions, while those living closest to major traffic arteries are up to 12 percent more likely to be diagnosed with dementia.”
And this raises concerns over our traditional and religious practices. To answer these questions of sustained environmental feasibility, ITM University celebrated the World Environment Day 2k19. On this occasion, Shri Sachidanand Bharti, who is known as the ‘Treeman’ in Uttarakhand, where his continued efforts towards environmental preservation have impacted the lives of millions of people, visited the University. The presentation which was lead by Celebrated author and journalist Shri Sopan Joshi and Shri Jayant Singh Tomar highlighted the key facets of Human outlook towards the environment. In his speech, Shri Sopan Joshi evaluated our cultural wisdom from Goddess Saraswati’s portrayal. As she holds the musical Instrument ‘Veena’ in one hand, even while being the goddess of ‘EDUCATION’, she resembles the diversity in environmental conservation.
Shri Jayant Singh Tomar, Head of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, relied on our idea of celebrating a World Environment Day to honour our natural resources. He also gave a brief account of Shri Sacchidanand Bharti’s life as an environmentalist and the hues of his basic lifestyle.
Finally, Shri Sacchidanand Bharti introduced everyone to his work and his contribution towards forest cover conservation in Uttarakhand. Through his relentless attitude and hardworking personality, Uttarakhand has experienced an unimaginable transformation in Environment. His efforts are even recognized by the Government of India. Also, the facts he presented about the depleting level of environmental order startled the audience.
He also thanked ITM University for their contribution towards forest conservation and thanked the management for their unintended support.
While being famous for Engineering, Pharma, Architecture, Management and Arts subjects, ITM University also promises a world-class set of surroundings to complement its initiative of green living. There are countless trees in the campus which give people a feeling of serenity and calmness and elevate their mood.
