announced that from the ensuing academic session, the University will introduce
a course on environmental science where it will be compulsory for each student
to plant and take care of at least two plants during his or her stay at the
campus. The students will be awarded grades at the end of their degree programme
based on the performance of their plants. The Vice-Chancellor said that Mother
Nature has been worshipped in India for ages and plants had been an integral
part of all religious and other important ceremonies. “God gave a beautifully
decorated earth to us but human greed has badly bruised it resulting in a
catastrophe where man has been compelled to purchase oxygen for survival”, said
Prof Chaudhary. He opined that the students right from the nursery classes to
the highest degree programme should be sensitized about nature and should be
taken to forest areas for ‘forest therapy’ so that they connect to nature and
care for it throughout life. He also discussed the issues related to carbon
credits and its importance in reducing, removing and avoiding greenhouse gas
emissions for the healthy environment. He also underlined the importance of
judicious planning for plantations so that region-specific approved plantations
are done by the concerned industry, institution, community or individuals. The
Vice-Chancellor said that there should be the least disturbance to centres of
diversity and micro-centres for keeping doors of evolutionary paths open. The
Vice-Chancellor said everyone should understand ones responsibility for the
conservation, preservation and propagation of a healthy environment. He said
that it is vital to restore the damage to ecosystems and biodiversity by
reimagining and recreating it for the sake of humanity.
