SMVDU, Katra, 2nd Oct. 2018. On 149th birth anniversary of the Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, a ten-day long Swacch Bharat Mission, culminated and completed. The event was organised by the National Service Scheme (NSS) at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University. All ten days were swarming with events and activities. While addressing the physical and spiritual growth of mind and body, regular yoga sessions were conducted, where a huge number of students, faculty members and staff actively participated. Since the university has been committed to ‘Clean India-Green India’, various cleanliness and plantation drives were taken place on campus with a clear message-go green, be healthy. To make ten days an engaging saga, various competitions were also organised, such as sketching competition, themed “The legacy of Mahatma” and an oratory competition, titled “Swacchata hi Seva”. Volunteers and students from the faculties of Engineering, Sciences, Humanities, Architecture and Management contributed to the core, as reported by Mr. Sumanta S. Sharma, NSS Faculty Coordinator.
