‘Jalambadi’ concept catching up

Over 3.5 lakh students from 700 schools being sensitised on water conservation

Jalambadi has become a household name with over 3.5 lakh students from 700 high schools being sensitised about water conservation. Another two lakh students from both government and private schools will be sensitised on the importance of conserving water by the end of this academic year, according to Ground Water Department Deputy Director A. Varaprasada Rao.

As part of the Jalambadi movement, an essay competition was being conducted on December 31 on the topic ‘Water conservation and role of students.’ A drawing competition on the topic ‘Water conservation’ would also be conducted as part of the campaign, he said.

The Government of India had declared 2013 as the ‘Year of Water Conservation’ to sensitise the people on the need to conserve water. The primary objective of the water conservation movement was to ensure that water was not withdrawn from the ecosystems at rate that was faster than the rate nature replaced it.

Reduction of energy being utilised for pumping water was another goal. In some regions of the world 15 per cent of the total electricity consumed was for water management. Reducing wastage of water, avoiding damage to water quality and better water management were strategies needed for water conservation.

As part of the programme to sensitise the 3.5 lakh high schools students in the district, 150 head masters and 250 science teachers were sensitised and trained. The students were sensitised through the reading of a concept paper in the school Assembly and also by conducting essay and drawing competitions, Mr. Varaprasada Rao said. The essay competition would be conducted at Nalanda Degree College from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on December 31 and the drawing competition from 11.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the same premises.
