Sandeep Juneja , Chandigarh, October 27, Govt. Model Sr. Sec. School Sector 37 and The India Post held a competition of Drawing and Article writing in the school premises. We found that even on this festive season the school was very neat and clean. Principal Mrs. Indira Dhingra, Ms. Simmi Kumra TGT Social Sciences, Mrs. Jaswinder Kaur Art Sciences organized these competitions.
All the senior classes participated in the competitions and with full enthusiasm. Everyone wanted to win the contests. With the help of teachers, the India post selected a few brilliants out of all the students. And, we proudly publish their text as below:
Ajay Partap Singh wrote that since he was a kid, he has not burnt crackers. And, whenever he reads news in the newspaper that someone has got burn injuries due to crackers, he feels bad about it.
Akriti Bansal wrote very well that crackers sound great for just a moment but then what about pollution. The noise, thermal, water, and air pollution causes serious ailments in kids and elders. She was very much concerned about her goals to stop kids burning crackers as she feels that she has seen aged-people being fierce of crackers. She said that she will take everyone on hands if anyone in her family, the kids, if they burn crackers.
Anubha being second runner up in the article writing competition gave us some facts. She says Crackers! Crackers! Crackers! Boom Boom! But why? Crackers were banned by Malaysia and Singapore governments in 1972. So there is a strict warning to the violators in that country.
Jasmeet, Kiran, and Bhawna all aged between 13-15, said that Indian Government is not taking any steps to stop crackers. This leads to burning of a lot of cracker shops. They even have read in the newspapers about some 5-10 incidents every year which were disastrous after cracker burst out in the cracker shop.
Tanu feels that 50% of the pollution is because of crackers on one or the other occasion in India. Someone is getting married and his relatives go crazy burning crackers. Some festival, may it be Diwali, Dussehra, or Gurpurab, everyone celebrates with crackers. She asks some relevant questions to people of India through us, that “Would you stop making us prey of smoke and pollution?”
