Technoparktoday.com>> Vivekananda Study Circle (VSC), the non-profit Socio-Cultural Organization in Technopark joined hands with Punyam Poonkavanam, an initiative headed by P.Vijayan, IPS, aiming ‘Clean Sabarimala’. VSC has decided to support in campaign through social media as well as directly with devotees.
In this regard, a direct campaign was conducted on 5th Dec ‘15, covering all major temples in Trivandrum starting from Pazhavangadi Ganapathy Temple. The volunteers has communicated the importance and guidelines for maintaining Sabarimala clean and plastic free to devotees and to the Temple authorities. They have distributed the flyers and put up banners to create awareness among people. The campaign was widely accepted in by devotees and Temple authorities.
The volunteers has also noticed that the Thycaud Sree Dharama Sastha temple is already following a 100% plastic free pilgrimage by ensuring that there are no plastic items( like covers, rose water bottles etc. ) in the Irumudi Kettu. A sample of such a Irumudi Kettu was demonstrated at other temples to set model for them.
As a next step, VSC is planning to conduct a Road show from Technopark to Pamba to create awareness in people for a “responsible and conscious pilgrimage” on 19th Dec.
