Anugraha School: “War on Uncleanness”
Mahatma Gandhi said, “We can no more gain God’s blessing with an unclean body than with an unclean mind. A clean body cannot reside in an unclean city”. Therefore, it is better to clean the city and specially the surrounding of our dwelling in order to create an atmosphere to live healthy life. This was shown to the Halbarga village by very example on Oct 2nd as Anugraha School celebrated the Gandhi Jayanthi. The Scouts and Guides students of Anugraha School walked the streets and collected the dirt that was on the road, streets, beside shops, every nook and corner of the city. The students collected mainly the plastic and papers. Indeed it was an eye opener for all people of Halbarga.

The program began with garlanding the picture of Mahatma Gandhi at School the premises. Thereafter with solemn band procession the staff and students of Anugraha entered the main roads of the city. They marched like bold soldiers as if it was “a war on uncleanliness”. There was 15 minutes program in the middle of the main road to create an awareness about the bad that can affect because of the unhealthy things that are around us. The Principal of the school, Fr. Richard OFM Cap, PSI Mr. Vijaykumar Dhannura, PDO Mr. Shridhar, Halbarga, Fr. Prashanthkumar Parish priest Halbarga, and Fr. Lourdswamy were present. Addressing the crowd all spoke about the cleanliness is next to Godliness. Thereafter all the dignitaries and students joined in cleansing the area for more than an hour. They all the students and staff returned to the school and enjoyed sweets.
