Heaps of solid waste dumped around street corners…garbage bins kept at various points..neither emptied nor cleaned…& trash being burnt in open – causing pollution. There is no check on the garbage being strewn or consigned to flames releasing highly toxic pollutants in the air. This plastic pollution has been causing a great harm to the environment and animals specially the cows. Cows consume plastic along with the food they find in trash piles and being unable to digest it die in the streets. Disposing the garbage carelessly in drains and on the banks of Yamuna river has led to the clogging and stagnation resulting in waterborne diseases. The list of problems is endless but where is the solution? Cleanliness is not a matter of instinct, it is a matter of education, and like most great things, a taste for it should be cultivated.

In an effort to create awareness among school students and general public about plastic pollution, Food for Life Vrindavan school girls formed a human chain on the Parikrama Marg in Vrindavan along with the students from many other schools of Vrindavan. The plastic pollution has been causing a great harm to the environment and animals specially the cows. During this event, an awareness group from Braj Act Now performed a play to create awareness about the harmful effects of plastic. Our school girls also distributed fliers highlighting the disadvantages of plastic. The event was coordinated and headed by the principals of FFLV. Here are a few photographs from the event:
“Dance is the hidden language of the soul. It is the poetic baring of the soul through motion.” In the month of November, we had the pleasure of having Janaki Mehta visit our school. She is a professional Kathak Dancer and has been a long time friend and supporter of FFLV. This year she sponsored widow’s feast and ice-creams for our school children. She also gave dance classes to Mansi, our ex-student and now a Kathak Dance Teacher here at FFLV. Mansi is very grateful to Janaki and is all set to teach her new dance to the other girls. We thank Janaki for her service at FFLV this year. She has a big heart and we are proud of her. We look forward for her next visit.
