XTASY-2K14 : AFTER BUZZ #2

By: Sradha Suman Mahapatra

CAMPUS_CLEANING_DRIVE: An attempt ! [By N.S.S, C.E.T ]

Be it the "Amul cool" bottles, paper cups and plates or be it various kinds of glittery wrappers, it is quite unlikely that you will fail to find these around you, when you are at C.E.T; And the probability tends to zero when you stand in the S.A.C [Students' Activity Centre ] area of the college. The countless number of mosquitoes and flies adorn the sites; And all we do is raise our nose, wave off the flies and say "Chhiii!" ...

But then this 20th February, 2014 [ one day before the start of XTASY-2K14 ] , an extremely spirited group of students grabbed a few plastic bags and gloves and set out to do the undone. Not caring for the heat above nor the dirt below, they went on with their "Go green, Go clean!" mission. Starting with some twenty odd volunteers, the number raised to more than a fifty when more keen students eagerly poured-in to lend their hands [Literally; because we ran out of the plastic gloves :D ] in the endeavor. 





Starting from the maggi-stained paper plates to the broken bottles [ some of "Old Monk" ], the troops of volunteers, spread over every nook and corner of the college grounds, parking lots, S.A.C area and the field behind that, upturned anything and everything that came their way. Determined to abide by their mantra, within about three whole hours, C.E.T was litter-free! Or so it seemed. 


Tired, all the volunteers gulped in the soft drinks provided. Satisfied with their effort, seeing the clean C.E.T around them, the volunteers dispersed; after, of course, the ceremonial photo-shoot :D

[ Again, one of us, a PenTastic happened to be a volunteer there, who was highly disheartened and disappointed to find people re-littering after just thirty minutes of the  Campus_Cleaning_Drive ! It might take a hundred hands to set things right, while only one can spoil every bit of it. So YOU choose, which hand you want to be ! ]
