Visakhapatnam: Amidst the shore and dawn, the RK Beach saw a group of students from Navy Children School performing a street play on Saturday.
The purpose of the event was to spread awareness among people for maintaining clean and plastic-free beaches and water bodies. Navy personnel and families also took part in the educational awareness beach clean-up drive.
The students enacted a street play which focused on how endangered our beaches and water bodies, and they need attention. "This initiative is much needed, and people should stop littering garbage at the beach and water bodies. I see a lot of plastic spoons and other trashes by the shore," says Mithila, a tourist from Kathmandu.
Ship Building Centre installed 4 to 5 flexes by the beach which reads, "Say no to plastic and save the earth," "70 per cent of the oxygen we breathe is produced by the ocean" and more.
Later, the students collected garbage, plastic bottles and other trash products. Talking about the ongoing immersion during the festivities, Project Director of Ship Building Centre Rear Admiral Kalidoss Srinivas, believes that, "We have series of ongoing festivity till December at the beach, and sadly, all the festive material are trashed into water bodies.
People should find an alternative method for immersion instead of dumping it into the sea." According to Principal of Navy Children School Parul Kumar, the whole idea of education is to give back to the community.
