'Gurgaon Go Green' initiative organized by Youth Social & Cultural Association
A greenery promotional initiative - 'Gurgaon GO Green'- was organized by Youth Social and Cultural Association today morning at Huda market in sector 4, Gurgaon. On this occasion, State Sports Minister Sukhbir Kataria was invited as the chief guest who inaugurated the event by flagging off the athletes for 5 km long race. Outstanding cultural programmes caught the people's attention till the last. More than 2000 people witnessed this event.
In the name of development, greenery has suffered a major blow and the increasing pollution is posing a dangerous threat to the city. This is causing less rainfall even in the rainy season year after year. To make people aware about adopting eco friendly steps, this initiative took place.  . The race was held in three categories like Professional athletes, school kids and open category (free for all people).

To encourage the greenery in the city, plantation process was performed by Seema Pahuja (Congress Party) and Subhash Chand Singla (BJP) who are gearing up from Gurgaon constituency for the upcoming assembly elections in Haryana, Anoop Singh and Pawan Pahuja. Large numbers of little plants were planted.

Pramod Sharma, President of Youth Social & Cultural Association said, "This time there was very less rainfall in Gurgaon. Therefore we have taken this initiative to make the environment green. We have been preparing for this event for the last one month. As a result, today 1200 school children, 200 children from Nehru Stadium and 600 residents of nearby areas participated in this programme.  The entire credit for the success of this event goes to all our team members."
Seema Pahuja councilor of ward no 11, said, "Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon also hold Raahgiri Day every Sunday in New Gurgaon to promote the greenery in the city. Alike, Gurgaon Go Green should be organized every Sunday to keep people healthy and fit in Old Gurgaon too." The children enjoyed the music. Neha Nanda danced the classic folk 'Dandiya'. Cultural programmes were performed by the children of the various schools. Apart from this, drawing competition was also held among small kids.

Under the guidance of Raj Bala Yadav, Coach of Devilal Sports Complex, Ankur Yadav grabbed the first prize, Rahul Yadav got second position and Rohit Sharma got third position in 5 KM long race. All three winners practice in Tau Devilal Sports Complex located on Sohna Road, Gurgaon.
However, these winners expressed their disappointment stating that there is no value for athletes in our nation. No employment facility is available at national level. This is a powerful game therefore it should be empowered.

There must be proper guidance for the players regarding career scope in this field.
Other winners were also given prizes by the honourable guests. In 3 KM race, Sumit Kumar got the first prize Pawan second place and P Aashutosh grabbed the third position.  Children from Lt Atul Kataria Memorial School, Pole Star Public School, Blue Bells Model School, Shanti Niketan School, Lions Public School sector 10, Aakash Public School, Drona Public School, J.J. Public School, Children Paradise School, Colonel Public School, SCR Public School, were also honored with medals.

The event was concluded with a beautiful song Shri 'Ganesha Deva' dedicated to God Ganesh by Chetna Public School, Rajiv Nagar, Gurgaon. The event was supported by Harvind Kohli, Deepak Nagpal and Vijay Malhotra.
