India, a land of diverse and rich cultural heritage, is often criticised for its towering pollution levels that are as visible as its traditions. At this juncture, 88-year-old Andhra Viswa Kala Parishad or the Andhra University promoted environment over individual interests after announcing its decision to close the campus gates to vehicular traffic for one day in the last week of every month. The ‘No Vehicle Day’ aims to conserve energy and contribute to the cause of environment protection.

On 28th of every month, the campus is closed and no vehicle is allowed into the campus. All the teaching, non-teaching staff, research scholars, students and other public is advised to use public transport on the day or park their vehicles outside the campus. However, the initiative doesn’t seem to go well with all and professors in their 60s find it tiring to walk to his department from the entrance gate. Keeping this in mind, few students opine that 28th of every month should be declared a holiday.
