“He who plants a tree, plants hope” ~ Lucy Lacron

 Van Mahotsav is an annual tree planting festival celebrated in India. It was made a national activity in 1950 by the Minister of Food and Agriculture, Kanaiyalal Maneklal Munshi. It is celebrated in the first week of July as this coincides with the onset of the monsoon.The celebration of Van Mahotsav in Rungta Public School, that runs under the aegis of SRGI, was an ideal opportunity to instill personal and social responsibility in our students towards safeguarding trees and forests. The focus of these celebrations is towards forming a personal connect between the students and trees through a process of experience, reflection and creation. 

Students from classes II to XII enthusiastically participated in the tree plantation drive that was conducted in the school campus on 6th of July 2022. The aim of the festival is to encourage people to support the conservation of trees as they help fight the ongoing climate crisis, sustain wildlife and provide us with resources amongst other things.

The Principal, Mr. Manas Chatterjee appreciated the efforts put in by the Green Saviors. Addressing the students he said the main purpose of celebrations like Van Mahotasav remind us of the fineness and superiority of trees while making the implications of our inherited assets and that without us trees cannot adjust or survive.
