Van mahotsav was celebrated with great enthusiasm at Indsearch on 29th August 2019.
Indsearch has always supported green initiative and at institute has always been assertive about maintaining green practices.
Prof Sunetra Gaitonde led a team of 17 students at VSA hill near Pashan Sus road. The team joined hands with Vasundhara Swachta Abhiyan, NGO from Pune which for the plantation drive. Mr. Anil Gaikwad and Mr. Pushkar Kulkarni from the said NGO guided the student faculty team on the VSA hill.
The objective of such initiatives is not only to create environment awareness in students but also encourage them to take care of saplings that are planted as part of this project. Mere plantation will not be sufficient to contribute towards the green initiative. Students were therefore encouraged to form a trail and fetch water to irrigate the newly planted saplings as well as other trees which were in the surrounding. Students agreed to visit these 20 saplings once in a week going forward, to look after them.
Green initiative is in the DNA of Indsearch philosophy. Celebrating Vanmahotsav reiterated the significance of planting more trees for a green and healthy environment.
