Indraprastha today stands tall as high as one of the premier schools of west Delhi. Though it is easy to blaze about the problems world is facing in the form of pollution, global warming, shrinking ice caps etc., very few people seem to take concrete action to save our mother earth.
At Indraprastha, we believe in action more than the discussion. Hence, the initiative in the form of “GoGreenatIndraprastha” was taken. It is a small step towards saving the planet which provides us with everything we need to survive on. Our business of organic fertilizers and handicraft work on the three ‘P’s that is people, profit and planet. It is a win – win situation as it will not only contribute its bit for the environment, but also help the underprivileged children. The goodies and articles collected from the enterprise will go for charity.
The scouts of Indraprastha once again went out to the slums to help the under privileged strata and to help them learn the skill of clay modeling.
As they say, if you are willing enough to take an initiative, the doors open themselves to take you forward. The enthusiasm, passion and eagerness of the students prompted the government agencies to sit up and take notice. Consequently, support was extended for the noble cause by ‘Aam Admi Party’, the party in power in New Delhi and under the guidance of Ms. Rakhi Birla, a Delhi Government official, a venue was earmarked wherein the training could be imparted to the needy.
The team members equipped with the requisite raw material organized a ‘training camp’ for the slum dwellers of Raghubir Nagar. It was heartwarming to witness the support of so many people for the righteous cause.
The smiling faces of the adults and children, their keenness to learn the skill of clay modeling and their nimble fingers trying to shape the clay – the sight was nothing short of mesmerizing!
God, give us the strength to carry forward the virtuous task.
The air was filled with Christmas festivity, cheer and enthusiasm for the students at Indraprastha. With celebrations all around, the young army of the volunteers was ready to play the Santa for the children of the slums. They were ready with their goody bags to distribute happiness and prosperity amongst their less privileged counterparts.
To add to the season’s cheer, a stall was put up at a strategic location in the market, to sell the products prepared as a part of the initiative. The wonder of wonder was that the products disappeared from the shelves like hot cakes! It seemed as if everybody wanted to help the ones in need and make a contribution for the noble cause. Nobility and charity are contagious and are spreading their wings in all the directions.
Let’s soar high on the wings of fire and help make a difference!
The time of Diwali is one of the most festive and beautiful times of the year. ‘Diwali’ literally means a ‘Row of Lights’. It is a time filled with light and love; a time when people rejoice. Diwali is celebrated on the thirteenth/ fourteenth day in the dark half of Kartik. It is the darkest night of the darkest period, yet it is a celebration of light! It is heralded as the triumph of good over evil.
The Indraprastha family extends its wishes to all on this pious occasion and wish that may the divine light of Diwali spread into everbody’s life Peace, Prosperity, Happiness and Good Health. We would also like to request you to celebrate a noise and pollution free Diwali. Let’s say no to crackers.
