Jammu, June 16: Bhartiya Lok Sangeet Kala Sansthan (BLSKS), in collaboration with Sangam Tru Art Production, launched a weeklong special awareness campaign on pollution to promote J&K’s traditional culture.

Taking place at Durga Bhawan in Janipur Jammu, the 364th installment of the organization’s weekly musical concert series was titled “Pardushan Hatao Jaan Bachao” and aimed at raising awareness of pollution and encouraging policy changes to mitigate its effects.


Chief Guest V.K.Magotra, formerly of the Directorate of Field Publicity in the Indian Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, and Mukesh Singh, formerly of the Jammu and Kashmir Government as Chief Medical Officer, opened the session. Dr. Tara Singh Charak served as the event’s master of ceremonies. Traditional primitive folk, art, and culture of the J&K area in particular and India as a whole were celebrated as part of “Anti Pollution Week,” which was also held to mark the occasion.

Skits, songs and dances were performed to raise public awareness, with themes like “Pardushan Cha Bacho” and “Chara Da Bukhar – Roko Roko Pardushan Gi Roko” and “Aaj kal di Hawa Badi Kharab.”

According to the Keynote Speaker, educating the people about ways to decrease their own personal risk and spreading the word about government initiatives to do so will help mitigate air pollution’s negative consequences. In addition to bolstering economic development via more efficient production in industry and less need for individuals, companies, and communities to manage trash, “pollution prevention” safeguards the environment by preserving and maintaining natural resources.

Jammu District’s Manwal, Arnia, Digaina, Mathwar, Reasi, and Nagrota villages and blocks would be visited by BLSKS’s seven performances this month. Dr. Dogra composed, produced, and directed the theme tune.

In his opening remarks, chairman Dr.M.L.Dogra listed many different types of pollution, including those related to the air, water, soil, noise, plastic, radiation, heat, light, and sight.

The prevention of environmental deterioration is greatly aided by public knowledge. The globe is being damaged at an alarming pace by climate change and pollution, making it crucial to mobilise the population into taking action when government and state policies fail. We can raise public awareness about environmental contamination in several ways. It mentioned things like “arranging community meetings with the participation of local people and local administration, etc.” and “conducting rallies to create mass awareness of environmental pollution with the participation of people.”

Awareness of environmental issues is crucial since it may reduce pollution and climate change. A more sustainable world may be the result if renewable energy sources like sun, wind, and water are encouraged. All of these factors contribute to environmental health, and communication about air quality has the potential to mitigate the negative effects of air pollution by raising public awareness, galvanising support for policies to reduce air pollution, and educating people on how to take personal precautions to lower their exposure to pollution. The ability to socialise, or become aware of one’s surroundings, is crucial for children to grow if they are to form healthy friendships and make good choices as adults. Social awareness was cited as being crucial “for our own emotional well-being,” which includes benefits such as better relationships and communication. Every kind of pollution is bad for the environment in its own way. This has repercussions for both human and animal life. It is up to us to take diverse measures to safeguard the natural world. To make progress towards a brighter future, we must combat pollution.

M.C. Kotwal, Usha Raina, Rajni Gupta, Chahat Chadha, Richu Balbinder, and Renu Bala were among the singers, musicians, performers, and music students who took part in the show. The Program’s Incharge, Deepak Kumar Dogra, gave a vote of gratitude when the event ended successfully.
