Ambition to Action

Ambition to Action

August 5, 2017 

As part of their Global Citizenship programme, students of grade X Desh have chosen to work on Water Conservation. A hands on learning experience to further this effort was their participation in cleaning out the Mylapore Chitrakulam, of debris, glasses and vegetation.

Report by our student volunteers:

Twelve students of Grade X Desh, along with the teachers-in-charge participated in an NGO-organised volunteer-driven effort to clean out Chitrakulam, the water tank belonging to the renowned Kesava Perumal Temple located in Mylapore. The Chitrakulam, a sacred tank believed to be over twenty centuries old, normally fills up during the rainy season and recharges the ground water table. However, this year, due to the failure of the rains, it remains dry and barren, but for pollutants of all kinds that can be found inside.

With the continued effort of temple trustees, Non-Governmental Organisations, and countless volunteers, the goal of clearing the tank of debris, wild vegetation, and waste is well within reach.

The students of Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam hoped not only to make an important impact, but also inspire others to do the same. Considering the fact that many volunteers are now taking action and spreading awareness through media coverage, it is only a matter of time before the hopes of these students becomes a reality.
