Probably for the first time, city woke up a day before Republic Day and schoolchildren showed how it should be done. The 1.6 km stretch, usually known for its defaced walls of SCD Government College came alive with plethora of activities in not more than two hours.
All thanks to more than 400 students from 30 plus city schools who thronged Rose Garden on the invitation of ALL (Assocham Ladies League) and social platform created on Facebook-Ludhiana Cares which coordinated the whole initiative.
Not behind were Mayor Harcharan Singh Gohalwaria who along with B S Chouhan, vice president of A2Z garbage lifting company hired by MC, decided to sponsor the whole cleanliness drive.
With brushes, rollers and paint tins in their hands, students along with their teachers displayed the true spirit of Republic Day and once shabby walls of SCD Government College wore a brighter, cleaner look and posters self designed by students on theme of environment were put on the wall.
The slogan ‘Cut the Greed, Not Our Greens’ from Bal Bharti Public School was declared winner. However, students who came there said that they never took it as a competition. Kallis from Greenland Public School said, “When first we were told about this wall painting competition I actually thought it would be like usual ones but this activity has filled me with sense of pride.”
