Adding to the problem, the idols are often decorated with paints heavy on lead and mercury which adds to the ongoing process of destroying the flora and fauna of the water body.To fight these challenges during the festival and to protect the environment, NSS Unit of the college came up with eco-friendly Ganesha making competition to promote green celebration of Ganeshotsav this year.Many students participated in the competition. The adjudicators of the event were Dr Anil Kumar ( Assistant professor Chemistry),and Prof Shivani sharma ( Assistant professor EVS ) of GDC Akhnoor.Miss Janvi sharma of sem IV succeded to Clinch the first Prize, Where asthe second and third Prize was bagged by Miss Sonali verma of sem VI and Miss Komal Manhas of sem IV of the college.The event was organised with all covid- 19 protocols maintaining social distance and wearing mask.
