Swachhata Awareness Activity by the Social Club of Department of Physics on September 30, 2018

Department of Physics organized a Swachhata Awareness Activity at Chopati traffic signal point, Surat on 30-09-2018 (Sunday) with prior permission from the Commissioner of Police, Surat. The aim of activity is to bring the awareness about the importance of cleanliness and its benefits to the daily life. In addition to that provide information about pros and cons of general trends to common people. In the activity, a group of ten students along with three faculty members of the department of physics actively involved. Students had prepared the posters and explain it orally to the people during the halt period (red light) of the signal. During that period some of the students and faculty members were engaged with the distribution of plants to the people as a token of love to earth with request to plant it and help to purify the air. Many people appreciated students and also help them in spreading the awareness. Accession of enthusiasm from traffic police and their staff added pleasant fragrance to this awareness activity. We are very much thankful to them for helping to conducting our activity smoothly.
