Noida, July 31, 2017: IMS Noida, one of the leading management institutes of India recently organised a unique programme of “Tree Plantation” to pay tribute to legendary Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, the former President of India, known as the ‘Missile Man of India’ on his second death anniversary. Students, Faculty and management members, all participated in this programme by planted saplings at the IMS Lawns. Thereafter, Students and faculty members jointly took up an oath of planting more trees for making the environment clean and safe in future.
On this occasion, Dr. Damayanti Datta, Associate Dean-IT, IMS Noida addressed the gathering and also shared her views. She said, “The spring had sprung and the universe had been aggrandized with different type of colors. Trees are the best gift of the nature and its preservation was our foremost duty. We were overwhelmed by the memories of Dr. Kalam and we will surely try to carry forward his legacy.
The programme has been concluded with the inspirational quote by Dr. KJS Anand, Executive Director IMS, “This was an initiative taken by IMS Noida to stop deforestation happening all across the country, mainly in Delhi NCR region. As we know trees play a vital role in our life. Trees are one of the ways of offsetting our carbon emissions. So, trees are the basic need of urban as well as rural cities. The main objective behind the programme was to teach our younger generation that our environment is incomplete without trees. We need to pay an attention towards our environment because global warming is one of the major giant spreading rapidly in the absence of Trees.”
“Someone can sit in the shade today because….someone planted a tree a long time back” adds Dr. Datta while concluding her speech.”
