350 districts and 12 states of India are struggling for water .The ground water level of 8,ooo villages goes down due excessive water extraction.Devaluation of soil and water has became a trend in the name of false development. For survival of human being , forest protection and water-soil- environment conservation should become a world movment , the chief executive director of Ideal village initiative of state government , Pdmshri Popatrao Pawar expressed his opinion.
Padma Shri Popatrao Pawar was felicitated at Pimpri Chinchvad on behalf of Adore Welding ltd. CSR committee. On this occasion Satish Bhat the managing director of Ador Company , senior social worker Girish Prabhune, Pritee Vaidya, Vinayak Bhide, Anirudh Belekar, Baburao Thange were present.
Popatrao Pawar said, India has always shown the world the path of human welfare. Sant Tukaram maharaj always insisted on planting long leaving trees like banyan, pimpal,audumbar, mango, ramphal etc. His verses ‘Vruksh Valli amha soyri …. ‘ is famous. Trees are worshipped in indian culture. The aim behind tree worship is environment and water conservation.India taught the world Yoga, Aurved and has shown how to live a natural life. Indian culture is nothing but a system of human welfare. But the new generation is feeling proud by imitating the western culture.
Pawar said, Mahatma Gandhi dreamed that, the independant India should be a Gram Swaraj. Unfortunately cities became India and villages became Bharat. The fight between India versus Bharat created ‘Indo Bharat’ crisis and instead of development it created threatening problems for human society. Dams were build for irrigation of agriculture land, but all the benefits gone to Industrial sector. Revers are getting polluted by industrial waste. Today more than hundred countries are struggling for water. Indian states like Punjab, Hariyana solved the hunger problem of country but couldn’t solve the problem of druge addiction of it’s youth. Excessive fertilizer damaged the fertility of soil. Our disturbed and unhealthy diet pattern has become the cause of boom in health and medicine industry. Increasing temperature has become a danger not only for environment but also for human life. With the help of technology we can create robots but we can’t create trees. It is responsibility of human society to plant trees and conserve environment. Through the education system, we should teach the next generation an attitude that concerns and conserve the nature and environment.
In the presidential speech Satish Bhat said, India is land of sacrificing people. With this inspiration Ador Welding Company has been working for the welfare of society, even before the CSR Act came in to force. The company is running many social activities. Company is giving free of cost technical training of four month for economicaly backward students to develop their business skill. It helped more than 1000 families to increase their income. The contribution of Popatrao Pawar is significant to develop Hivre Bazar village and making it a world brand.
Santosh Zambre anchored the program, and Vinayak bhide offered gratitude.
