Fifty saplings were planted.
Kuni Kumari Goura, Principal Incharge of OAV, Bahupadar said ” Actually the main motif of Vanamahotsav is to promote the idea one child, one tree. It is very pessimistic to say that during this pandemic situation, our OAVS Former Advisor Dr. Bijay Kumar Sahoo, Founder of Sai International School has passed away few days ago. His dedication towards our sangathan is great. In regard to tribute of Dr. Bijay Kumar Sahoo, the sangathan has decided one million saplings will be planted throughout all the OAV schools in Odisha. This is our main motto for monsoon plantation drive. We are nothing without the existence of tree in this world. ”
She also expressed that how in this pandemic situation the people of our country witnessed and suffered for the shortage of oxygen in different hospitals. Through this, a small contribution is being done towards an environment and nature. We are helping ourselves but not the nature.
