Valentines Day with Nature



Valentine’s day, also called as Saint Valentine’s day is celebrated all over the world annually on 14th February. It originated as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentines. Valentine’s day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and celebration of love in many regions around the world. People, especially the youth celebrate it by showcasing their love towards their loved ones with special greetings and gifts.

Have you ever thought with whom all we can celebrate this day?? Is it only dedicated to the lovers?? According to our LEADers No. Then with whom all can we celebrate this day? Parents, friends, siblings or the loved ones.  Here is our LEADer Rohit Gani with unique and beautiful thought of “Valentine’s Day with Nature”.


Yes our LEADer Rohit Gani, final year BCA student of RLS college Belagavi celebrated valentine’s day with nature. He along with 186 pair of students planted 143 plants each accounting for about 26,960 plants. Yes you read right Twenty six thousand Nine hundred and sixty plants along the roads of Tealsang to Guddapur of belagavi district. Rohit dedicated his three days to execute the whole program Successfully. He collected 27,000 plants of five different types of trees like neem, Sankeshwar tree etc. from the local government nursery. They used the local transport to take the saplings to the location. All the students gathered on 14th February 2019 at 8.00 am and started the plantation. They planted till 7.30 pm in the evening. What a dedication! A true gift to the nature.

They spoke with the local people and the contactors to water the plants and take care of the necessary things. The villagers happily agreed and appreciated the LEADers for their spectacular job and their love towards nature. Rohit says that he feels completely satisfied by the thought of serving the nature  by doing this project. He says he has benefited himself by learning team building, handling the situation and time management correctly. He also said that ” I achieved the success more than what i had expected”.

Really hatts off to the whole team for initiating such a wonderful project. Also they taught us a different and true way to celebrate valentine’s day with nature. Not only on valentine’s day but every day we can do this. If we start celebrating love towards nature like this then within few days we can breath a pollution free air. Let’s pledge for it and start doing it.
