Hojai DLSA observes World Environment Day

RAHA:  The whole life support of humans depends solely on environmental factors. Without environment we cannot imagine life on this planet.

But today, when there has been a lot of technological development in the world, the environment in which we are living is becoming increasingly contaminated.

Therefore, to spread awareness and to make people understand that they have a role to play in preventing the loss of biodiversity and preserving nature for our future. World Environment Day is celebrated every year.

On this auspicious occasion, District Legal Services Authority, Hojai wishes everyone a very Happy World Environment Day. In order to avert the hazardous consequences of global warming in the near future, we must take necessary steps for the conservation of our environment. 

Renowned environmental activist, forestry worker and Padmashri awardee Jadav Payeng spoke exclusively to DLSA Hojai on the occasion of World Environment Day. Also known as the Forest Man of India because of his incredible feat of spending 30 years of his life planting trees, thereby creating a real man made forest. Attending to the special request made by Pronita Morang, Secretary, DLSA Hojai,  Jadav Payeng was delighted to say a few words on the significance of this day. He spoke about how the first major conference on environmental issues by 12 countries in Sweden, 1972 led to the declaration of June 5 as World Environment Day. He also urged everyone not only to grow a plant on this day every year but also to take care of it until the plant turns into a tree. 

Morang expressed her sincere thanks to Jadav Payeng for his words of wisdom. DLSA Hojai is eternally grateful to Jadav Payeng for single-handedly changing the landscape in the state of Assam.

Although District Legal Services Authority, Hojai is unable to organize an awareness drive to raise awareness about the environment and why it is important to conserve the planet because of the ongoing lockdown scenario in the country, they have successfully distributed 50 plant saplings among 10 schools and colleges in the entirety of Hojai district. Don Bosco High school, Hojai, Abdul Hasib Girl's Higher Secondary School,Abdul Khaleque Memorial High School,Hojai, Nilbagan Model Higher Secondary school, Nilbagan,  Mariam Women's College, Ajmal Law College, Hojai etc. are some of the beneficiaries of this distribution scheme. DLSA, Hojai also planted plant saplings in the premises of Sankar dev Nagar Court.

The environment in which we live can be understood as a blanket that keeps life on the planet sage and sound. It plays a vital role in keeping living things healthy. It provides food, shelter, air, and fulfils all the human needs. Likewise, it maintains the ecological balance on earth.

Small actions like recycling your water bottle, minimal use of plastic or planting native species in your garden, to big actions like investing our time and effort towards planting trees in numbers, we all ultimately have a role to play in the conservation of our unique species and habitats.
