Kids clean Jhora in Kalimpong

KalimNews, Kalimpong, 5 January 2016: Little Kids also can teach ethics and be example to their elders. In an exemplary event Kalimpong Kids cleaned Bhaisey jhora/ Kholsa near Gangotri school. To clean this Bhaisey stream these young teen kids of Sherpagaon, Dr. Grahmes Homes area were joined by students of Framingham State University, Massachusetts USA. 
10 members of Kalimpong Kids led by Zenas Lepcha, Sneha Chhetri and 15 undergraduate students led by their teacher Prof. Lisa Eck participated in this venture. They hung several tin container dustbins beside the stairs path along the Jhora starting from Sherpagaon to Gangotri high school. They cleaned Jhora and collected all glass pieces and bottles and plastic undisposable materials. All disposable papers and torn pieces of clothes were collected and burnt down. 

Prof. Lisa stated that it is good to do some constructive work for India. I like Kalimpong and it is my second visit. Kalimpong is a beautiful town with very hospitable people but we saw people throwing all unused materials everywhere indiscriminately. Either they have no civic sense or they are not taught about it. So its everybody's responsibility to keep one's place clean and maintain hygiene and avoid pollution. 
She also said that we are learning hospitality from people of Kalimpong. They are staying with the family of Kalimpong Kids and encouraging them for home stay tourism. Kid leader Zenas said that people throw hazardous substances like CFL lamps and batteries in streams which is dangerous to our health. It is very much alarming so we want to make people aware about these things. 
Kid Sneha said that we enjoy cleaning Jhora and we are proud to say that we could do something profitable for our community. 

Cedrick, a FSU student opined that it is the responsibility of each and every citizen as well as the government to protect, preserve and conserve the nature and natural resources. Recycling should be taught and practised by NGOs or government, he added.
