NewZNew (S A S Nagar) : Ashmah International School organised an anti-cracker campaign. Children are the largest consumers of crackers and it’s high time to educate them about its harmful after effects to their health and environment. The students as well as residents were educated the ill effects of burning crackers and advocate the idea of celebrating Diwali with candles, sweets and non-polluting green crackers available in markets. The students were carrying colourful placards and raised slogans like say no to crackers, yes to life to cultivate a sense of duty towards the society with which we can better our lives.
Anti-cracker campaign was flagged off by the Director J.S. Kesar. While motivating the students he said that crackers should not only be avoided but also banned. He urged the students to take this message not only to their families, but also their neighbour hood and adjoining colonies so that this initiative takes the shape of a movement due to harmful effects of crackers to health and environment. Many pamphlets were distributed throughout the city to promote the anti-cracker movement. The students went to various parts of the city holding banners denouncing the use of crackers and even approaching shopkeepers not to sell noisy and polluting crackers.
