On 2nd 2021 October, a cleanliness campaign was launched on large scale in special collaboration with the School of Social Sciences and Humanities of the Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya, the Department of Theology and Divinity and N.C.C. Under this campaign, a cleanliness drive was conducted in an area of half a kilometre from the outer gate of DSVV to Shantikunj. In the program, a special role was played by the Department of Education, Psychology, Theology and Divinity and N.C.C. students. A total of 150 students carried out the cleanliness and awareness campaign at the elementary level.
According to Shri Om Prakash Tejra, the Lecturer of the Department of Theology and Divinity, in the upcoming weekly cleanliness campaign, the Departments of Rural Studies and Sustainability, Journalism and Mass Communication, Tourism Management, Indian History and Culture, N.S.S. and others would also participate. Shri Tejra stressed on the need of paying attention to the feelings of the people while conducting such cleanliness campaigns.
According to Shri Durgesh Dwivedi, the Head of the Department of Theology and Divinity, cleanliness campaigns help in maintaining healthy body. Every class should come forward in order to fulfill the concept of a healthy body, a clean mind and a civilized society.
The volunteers cleaned the bushes, polythene, drains etc. in front of the shops. The biggest thing is that they made the people around aware of the cleanliness concept and called for a member from every house to participate in the cleanliness drive.
The Pro Vice Chancellor of the University, Dr. Chinmay Pandya, extended his warm wishes to the entire school for conducting such a program. According to Dr. Pandya, such programs can only be conducted by inner feelings of a human being. We should move ahead by fulfilling the concept of national purification through purification of emotions, in the current century.
