“Let the war against plastic become public – Smt. Smitha – Virtual lecture program at JSS Women’s College

Kollegal, July 7, 2021: “Though we all know that usage of plastic is hazardous none of us are ready to stop using it in our daily lives. Hence, all of us should stop using it. Let it begin with us, then at home, in our locality and everywhere,” opined Smt. Smitha, Lecturer, Dept. of Geography, JSS Women’s College, Kollegal.

She delivered a virtual lecture on the topic, “Environment conservation impossible without stopping usage of plastic,” organized by the Environment Conservation Committee, National Service Scheme, of the JSS Women’s College, Kollegal.

In her lecture, she said, “Though plastic is prohibited in the State and the country, all of them including businessmen, customers have continued using it unabatedly, which is very unfortunate. The methane gas emitted from plastic is 30 times dangerous than carbon dioxide. It leads to the extinction of flora and fauna. Hence, we all should pledge not to use plastic and save our future generations from disaster.”

In his presidential address, Prof. Umesh, Principal expressed his view, “plastic appears harmless from outside, but it can prove fatal to us. We conducted the cleanliness drive successfully. Likewise, we should also strive to build a completely plastic-free society. Many other alternate products to plastic are available in the market. We should start using them and pledge not to use plastic,” he said.

Sri Basavaraju, NSS Program Officer, and NSS volunteers took part in the online virtual program.

Yoga provides good and healthy life: Prof. B.V. Sambashivaiah

Mysuru, June 21, 2021: “India is a wealthy nation. Our tradition has helped us to receive life as a penance. Our ancestors have taught us all the culture and ways that have to be followed from birth till death. Yoga is also included in it.

Mental health is also important. The entire world has started understanding it and hence all of them are now following yoga. Everyone should learn yoga and practice it, which is the main objective the International Yoga Day. The COVID-19 Pandemic has made a huge impact on not only the entire mankind but also on nature. As a result of which we are still not able to come out of our houses fearlessly and enjoy the company of our friends. Lakhs of people used to gather at one place during International Yoga Day since 2015. But this year we are forced to observe the day ‘staying at home.’ We should not limit practicing yoga just on this day. We should indeed inculcate a habit of practicing it every day in our lives and make our society disease-free. I wish the country shall get rid of the pandemic as soon as possible,” he said.

A virtual yoga class was held by K. Shilpashri from Bengaluru. All the teaching, non-teaching staff, and students of the College attended the online program.

Support Children facing a grim future

The Covid pandemic has devastated many a life and the worst affected are the children!. The second wave has been crueler to the children as scores of families have been wiped out (vastly affected). Today we see thousands of children who have lost one of their parents or both. Besides, the pandemic has left many families economically shattered with no resources available to support the children beyond basic sustenance. These children will perhaps miss their education which is very important for their survival. This can be changed if we all come together and do something about it.
His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji, the spiritual head of Sri Suttur Math and the President of JSS Mahavidyapeetha, Mysuru has pledged support to such children by providing free education and boarding at JSS School, Suttur, Mysuru Dist., Karnataka, India.
