The residents of CBD Belapur Sector 9 locality celebrated Basant Utsav on Sunday 29th January 2012 with a lot of fun filled activities. The idea was to encourage the local residents to go green, spare a thought for the environment and follow the three Rs- reduce, recycle and Reuse.
A Plant and Flower show was arranged for display and competition in various categories. We had a good collection of Bonsai and cacti. I surprisingly didn't see many kitchen garden plants though a 4ft tall sapota (chikoo)plant laden with fruits stole the show. Workshops on terrace Gardening and How to recycle your waste provided the educational aspect.
Children participated with great enthusiasm in an activity solely meant for them- Create your own Green Land. It was a real eye-opener to view the task from a child's perspective.
A dog show was organised for dog lovers to show off their pets.
And for all, there were mouth watering delicacies prepared by the local residents.
