The Yaluvahalli youths embarked upon the clean and green project on Tuesday, as they set into motion their task of cleaning the surrounding areas of the burial ground.

They began clearing the areas of weeds and garbage. And are planning to plant saplings in the region. 

Leading the team is president of the Sericulturists Welfare Forum Yaluvahalli Sonnegowda.

He said, “Usually the burial grounds are the most neglected areas in any place. People visit their to bury or burn the body and never return back. These are mostly deserted places and scope for pollution looms large. This will only lead to environmental hazards and also give birth to diseases.

“It is important to keep the burial grounds and its surrounding regions clean and tidy. We decided to create awareness in this regard in the village and especially if the youths are convinced, they can create wonders in converting the most neglected part of a village into an environment-friendly and mankind-friendly space. Thus, we decided to embark on this task,” he added.

Overcame reservations

He said initially the youths were hesitant and some of them were even scared to visit the burial grounds.

But later on, they overcame all their reservations and voluntarily decided to do their bit to the society and the environment. “We are happy by their response, commitment and eagerness,” he added.
