Van Mahotsav celebrated at WIS, Bhilwara ( 08.07.16)

Saving trees is our responsibility
Death of a tree can lead to a calamity
Cut one tree plant five more
Cutting even a branch is like cutting your house’s door.
Van Mahotsav is an annual tree planting festival in India, celebrated in the first week of July. This movement was initiated in the year 1950 by India's Union Minister for Agriculture, Kulapati Dr. K. M. Munshi. The celebration of Van Mahotsav at Witty International School, Bhilwara is an ideal opportunity to instill personal and social responsibility in our students towards safeguarding trees and forests. 
Wittians were briefed about the importance of trees and that it is a treasure to be preserved for the coming generations in form of poem recitations. They presented a meaningful play which showed the importance of trees and how much every man on the Earth is obliged to trees. Students planted saplings in the school and pledged to nurture them. Thus, students had the opportunity to fulfill their duty towards environment. In the words of Warren Buffett, “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
