Environment became a major topic in DU’s 75th Independence Day celebration:
Mr. Joshi mentioned that Delhi University is one of the top universities in India. Thus, DU needs to play a major role in the act of protecting the environment, especially in these harsh times. Also, he remembered the major contributions made by Dr. Virendra Kumar and Professor C R Babu in the field of environmental protection and biodiversity.
Thus, this historic decision was taken that every DU student will now plant a tree on their respective locale and look after it. The Centre of Himalayan Studies will provide technical support in this venture. Today, on the 75th Independence Day, Mr. Joshi and his team took a remarkable step of planted trees. A grove named after our first DU VC, Dr. Hari Singh Gaur was inaugurated.
