Two groups of Jodhamal Kids under the guidance of their teachers Priyanka Singh, Nandini Bakshi and Vandana Jain performed street plays at a number of places this evening… It started from Wave Mall where the Senior kids brought insight to the Destiny and by giving a message to the general public that there is no need to have blind faith on any baba or tantric or any TV Channel which proclaims to forecast the Rashiphals…We need to come out of the clutches of these so called Babas.
The junior kids of Jodhamal brought out the importance of water in our life by transporting the audience to the 2050 & 2075 and anticipating the problems faced by our future generation due to our wasteful consumption of water… They gave a message of saving every drop of water and ensuring that River Tawi the life line of Jammu is taken care of since its water level is also going down each year and it has got so highly polluted that her very significance is at stake… Jodhamal School had been doing a lot to save Tawi by cleaning the trash in the river and also by starting a Save Tawi Campaign in the previous years.
The street plays were so captivating that anybody who passed by was forced to stop and have a look and appreciate the initiative of the Jodhamal School children. School is grateful to the Police Department for all the support and the entire press fraternity for giving the voice of the students of Jodhamal Public School a momentum for other school children to join this movement and for ensuring the awareness among the masses that rivers, since time immemorial have been a source of livelihood for Indians.
