India is a great country. It has a great past with rich heritage, but government agencies often ignore the fact that these buildings of the past need continuous help to attract tourists and remain standing and in fine shape. But the truth is tragic. Buildings are crumbling down due to lack of care.
Recently, students of ten schools of Delhi took part in demonstration to awake the Archeological survey of India (ASI) and sensitise people about the priceless value of these historical landmarks. Neela Hauz has become a dead pool at Aruna Asaf Ali Marg due to government’s apathy. The students tried to know what PWD or MCD will do to restore the historic Hauz. They roamed holding banners, posters with screaming messages like “for your comfort, don’t kill the blue lake.” The march which took place on Feb 4, included students of DPS (Vasant Vihar), Mothers International School and Iraqi School. They registered their protests with PWD, DJB and MCD officials and demanded informations.
