Shrikant Ingalhikar gave a valuable talk on the role of the press in environment conservation on the fourth day of the Vasundhara International Film Festival,organised to raise environment awareness at the Yashvantrao Chavan Auditorioum at Kothrud recently. There are many simple things wherein even a common man can help in nature conservation. Vehicles and industries emit pollution on a huge scale. Engines used in the vehicle do not always meet international standards set to minimize pollution. Instead of processing garbage,people in Pune as well as the corporation opt to burn it,which is very harmful to the ecology, he said. On the occasion,Makarand Deshpande discussed his award winning animated film Lost Homes,which is a beautiful presentation of how animals are facing problems because of disappearing forests. Also,Sanjay Kulkarni spoke about his short film No Smoking.
