New Delhi: It was a much anticipated evening at the Aadyant School in Vasant Vihar on the 24th of August, 2012. Kids, in the age group of 3-5 were expectant of an evening of fun and frolic, like most other evenings.
But this event went beyond just fun.
A group of socialites left behind the usual demands of fashion and glamour to educate children on a truly social cause – Water Conservation. These children spent an entire evening understanding a major social responsibility which was taught to them by a group of socialites, led by Ms. Ruchie Mittal, promoter of Aadyant School. She spread awareness on the critical subject, in association with the Little League Organization.
Other leading socialites in the group included Ms. Sonal Gupta from the Gold Souk Family, Ms. Kashish Gupta from the Avalon Family and Ms. Anshita Madan from Johnson Watch Company, among others.
Educating the kids on the need for water conservation, Ms. Mittal said, “Imagine buying water at the rate of gold, 15 -20 years from now. That’s likely to become a reality if we continue wasting water at the current rate and don’t recycle.”
A World Bank report has already classified 29% of India’s groundwater reserves as being in a ‘semi-critical’ state and has warned that 15 years down the line, India stands the risk of losing about 60% of such reserves.
