Udaipur Ek, in joint association with Platinum, Jain Social Group, and under the effective supervision of Praveen Ratliya organized “Vriksham” a tree planting initiative in various location across Udaipur.
The power of Youth determination was seen during this event, held on 17th July, Sunday, where over 5,000 tree saplings were simultaneously planted at pre-determined locations across Udaipur.
Home Minister Gulab Chand Katariya, special guest at Goverdhan Sagar Ring Road, Collector Rohit Gupta at Residency School, MLA Phul Singh Meena at Rajkiya Vidhyalay, Dhool Ki Paati and MP Arjun Singh Meena at Sarada Panchayat praised the efforts of the participants. Other eminent people at the other 26 locations included Asrar Ahmed President of Ajmer Shaif Dargah, District President Gopal Sharma, District Secretary Pankaj Sharma and Dr. Preeti Panwar Solanki (Mrs India United Nations).
Ancient religious texts, diverse natural cures, etc have directly as well as indirectly explained and supported healthy environment and conversation and protection of available resources. But how many of us practice this concept?, said Pravin Ratliya.
Ratliya further said that the depth of this concept has been understood now and the urgency of protecting natural resources is out of helplessness, when we are witnessing swift depletion of greenery all around.
Keeping this in mind, the youth of UdaipurEk have taken up this initiative, he added. Pravin explained that the young members of UdaipurEk decided to approach each such couple who have recently been blessed with a baby and give them a sapling as a gift for their little one. They will then explain the couple that the sapling needs to be planted and taken care of as their child, and demanded that the newly planted sapling be watered every day.
He said that even a 1% success ratio will ensure clean breathable air for a Crore people. This can be treated a Thanksgiving Day from the youth of Udaipur to their natural resources.
