1 A drop of Water- Amounts to life That divine elixir of eternal life- Water Save every drop of it, say the wise. A Report on Project Boond Every country in the world today is very aware of the importance of the natural resource water and its multi dimentional & inevitable utility in our daily activities, that keeps the Earth going round & keeping it alive & breathing. In an overwhelming initiative to respond to the cause of Water Conservation, The DAVCMC organized an awareness movement, under the clarion call from President CMC Shri Poonam Suri ji & Dr. Nisha Peshin, President Arya Pradeshik Pratinidhi Upsabha- Delhi and Rashtriya Arya Yuva Samaj- Delhi. This involved all the D.A.V. schools of Delhi, as apart of the Water Cooperation year that is being celebrated in 2013, all over the world. Undertaking the issue of Water as a project, in the form of Project Boond, the D.A.V Public School, East of Loni Road, participated in various activities that were conducted within the school premises as well as outside it.

2 In our school the activities organized for students of various classes included the following:- The tiny tots of the school from pre-school to class II recited short poems on the theme of Water in a poetry recitation activity, which was held on 17 th January, On 17 th January, 2013, there was a Placard Making Activity for students of class VIII. In this activity,all the students of class VIII took active part in writing slogans based on the theme of Water along with colourful visuals in support. Some of these slogans were- Do not waste it, just taste it, Now you save water, later water will save you, Save water for a bright future! and many more, that underlined the concern of our students for their environmental welfare. About 100 students took part in this activity, under the guidance of two co-ordinating teachers. A wide range of activities were organized on 19 th January, 2013 for several classes. For V class, there was a Poetry Recitation Competition. The students recited self written poems, both in Hindi & English Languages, expressing their views on Water in a creative display. Four best performers were selected, from among more than 100 students who participated.

3 On the same day, i.e 19 th January, 2013, a Slogan Writing Activity was held for students of VI class, on the topic Save Water: Save Life. From 9:30am to 11:30am, all the students of this class made placards with colourful slogans on them. The slogans expressed the great value they associate to water in their daily routine life. Some of these were:- Do not waste a drop Conserve H 2 o (Danger level reaches) stage 2- much, much, much! Every drop is precious; do not waste it. Say No to bath in a shower Save life; save water power. These words, coming from the young students, really made people think twice before unnecessary use of water and unmindful utilization of the resources.

4 There were 2 activities for students of VII class on 19 th January, One was Making Book Marks & the other was Write tips on how to save water. The bookmarks made by the students carried on them facts related to water. These book marks were in the shapes of drops of various sizes or umbrellas, on which the students also wrote down tips to save water. Some students wrote about not to keep the tap running while brushing your teeth or to turn off a tap as soon as a bucket is full etc or even rain-water-harvesting was suggested. Later, these drops or book-marks were placed on display on the display boards for each house of the school, which took up the Boond Project as its subject matter for the week. On this day, IX class presented a Nukkad Natak on Jal Sanrakshan at two local sites in MIG & LIG flats. The students evoked immediate response from the local viewers, who not only appreciated the concern of the school going students but also came up with a suggestion to perform more such street plays for wider & immediate influence over the general public. The suggestion was to take up the issue of over population also in relation to the problems of water as the more number of the people, the increase in demand for water multiplies & leads to its shortage. The students distributed pamphlets with some of the important dos & don ts of water conservation to the passersby & the viewers of their street play. Students were thus successful in sensitizing & awaring the masses in their concern with saving water, through their simple messages, but no less important ones like keeping the taps turned off while not in use and to minimize use of water in works like cleaning, washing & bathing activities etc- Do not use 10 buckets where you can manage in only one bucket of water.'

5 The students of XI class presented Power Point Presentation on Problems of Water Pollution & its Solution. They prepared these presentations in groups of two students in each group. Technology is greatly instrumental in supporting the cause of environment & natural resources, is the message of their project & of course that pollution free industry may help to maintain the purity & freshness of water. Recycling of garbage & drain water was also one of their important suggestions for solution to the problems of water pollution. On 21 st January, 2013 the students of class III took part in rhythmic short poem recitation & singing activity titled Songs & Jingles on Save Water. Poems were recited & songs were sung by the small children, in both Hindi & English Languages. The best performers were selected from each class. From III A & III B, 3 students from each section were chosen for their excellence in jingles. In songs, 2 from III A & 3 students from III B were selected as best performers.

6 In a Drawing & Painting competition for students of class IV, held also on 21 st January, 2013, the topic was on another aspect of water, that is its Resources. Students showed their wide relationship with this resource in its various forms, as they painted taps, rain, underground water & even rivers in their paintings. The participation of the students & concerned teachers was complete & was full of the spirit of enthusiasm & complete involvement in the theme of water. Related to the theme, the teachers & students of our school, submitted a painting in acrylic colours on canvas in an inter-school painting competition held among all the D.A.Vs. The painting depicted the Earth as a bird, to emphasize the fact, that the Earth is a living organism, the life & flight of which is sustained only by water.

7 As many as 100 students from our school, on 19 th January, 2013 took active part in the Human- Chain- Formation Programme at Rajghat, Gate No.1 & 2, from 10:30 am to 12:30 noon, holding placards, slogans & banners on water conservation. The message of the Human Chain was to place emphasis on the need to unite & join hands in the preservation, purification & conservation of our life- giving resource- Water. During this programme our students interacted with some foreign tourists, from countries like Afghanistan, Russia & America & informed them about the various utilities of water, the necessity of saving water for the next generation & our contributions in saving water. Some of the slogans written on the placards were as follows:- Without a drop there will be no crop. Every drop counts, so join hands & save water. Conserve the water, preserve the nation. Jal hai, to kal hai. Is boond- boond ko bachakar, ek sagar swayam banao. Raksha kar jal ki, warna guarantee nahi kal ki. Jal se milta sukh apaar, mat bahao isko bekar. Shower- bath ko kahen bye-bye, baalti mug se hi nahayen. karte ho bacchon se pyar, to swacch jal ka do uphaar. Today s rain- water is tomorrow s life saver. Whenever you conserve water, you conserve life. Save water, secure future. Rain- water tank, won t break the bank.

8 The students of our school also made 40 mascots that represented the project boond. The banners which they held bearing the names of the Arya Pradeshik Pratinidhi Upsabha- Delhi and Rashtriya Arya Yuva Samaj- Delhi, had two slogans on each of them- Samjho sakal jagat ki peer, kabhi na ganda karna neer, & karte ho bacchon se pyaar, to swacch jal ka do uphaar. The starting point of the Human-Chain was from Shantivan (Samadhi of Shri Jawaharlal Nehru) to the ending point at kisan Ghat (Samadhi of Ch. Charan Singh). All the students wore aprons (with the logo printed on both sides). The students stood, holding their hands on both sides of the road on pavements, at the specified venues. For every 25 students, there was one large banner (of the size of 6 feet by 3 feet) & one placard for two students. All teachers & helpers wore Volunteer Cards, showing, discipline & complete co-ordination. The Project Boond taken up as a mass- awareness programme by the D.A.V. CMC proved to be highly fruitful, effective & a grand success as all the D.A.V. students, including students of our school, teachers & high officials joined hands to make it carry the message across, far & wide in the city, that the challenge before us is to focus our attention on actions taken for longterm sustainable management of water resources. The project boond thus stream lined the collective concern for water & its utility across the world & woke us all up from our apathy & negligence in this crucial area of life, so that we may declare jointly: Wake up, the morning is not far away Life begins & ends with water- There is heaven in each drop, let us realize, Let us conserve it, not waste away. Because water today for all of us means a better, safer & healthier tomorrow. Let us celebrate Life on earth Let us give a meaning to life- Let us gift Water to the next generations & secure life on Earth.
