‘If you destroy forest, you will be destroyed’



Chamba: “If you destroy forest, you will be destroyed”. These was the message Chamba deputy commissioner Devesh Kumar gave students while presiding over the valedictory function of the 3rd batch of ‘Five-day Nature Study Camp’ organized at Youth Hostel, Dalhousie, by the Youth Hostels Association of India for the sixth year in succession.

Eighty-three participants from 33 different schools of Maharashtra and Gujarat were in this batch and they trekked from Dainkund to Joth, Lakharmandi to Kalatop and back to Dalhousie. They also took part in rappelling and river crossing activities. Kashyap Pandya, Vrunda Patel, Pankaj Nemade and Laukika were the student leaders of this group.

The deputy commissioner distributed medals to the winners of the painting competition held on the topic ‘water conservation’. SDM Dalhousie Shubh Karan Singh said that these camps help in inculcating leadership qualities in students and improve ability to face challenges in life.
