Beach Cleanup Drive with Mr. Afroz Shah 2019

Transition from ‘Life of convenience to the Life of existence‘

Afroz Shah, who hails as a man who successfully initiated the world’s largest beach clean –-had an interesting conversation with the students of Podar International School (Cambridge) Powai. He is the first Indian to be awarded as a ‘Champion of the Earth’ by United Nations and ‘Indian of the Year’ by CNN.

A lawyer by profession, he has changed the perception of ‘family ‘and ‘home’ for students and teachers. He explained how we restrict our family to our immediate relatives and our house and forget that we all are a part of an ecosystem and are expected to survive with all other living beings on earth and in oceans. He encouraged children to develop a love for nature and a desire to create pristine oceans. He motivated students to participate in the clean up drive to be held at Daana Pani beach , Malad. The young audience asked him questions like, “Where would the collected garbage and plastic go?” Instead of directly answering their questions, he insisted the students to join him on the beach to get the answers for their queries practically.

He quoted, “I am an ocean lover and feel that we owe a duty to our ocean to make it free of plastic. I just hope this is the beginning for coastal communities across India and the world.” This quote acted as a catalyst to bring a change in the attitude of our students and encouraged our students to be a part of the clean up drive the following day. Our students geared up for ‘A date with the Ocean’. They gathered at Dana Pani beach to pick up garbage as a part of a clean-up drive led by Mr. Afroz Shah. The drive also witnessed famous personalities such as Aditya Thackeray, the President of Yuva Sena and the deputy Foreign Minister of Norway.

The aim of this drive was to raise awareness about plastic ban and non-usage of single use plastic which hampers the city, its sea-line and also disturbs the marine-life in water bodies. Students and teachers enthusiastically cleaned up the stretch and tried to beautify it. And of course all the queries that our young citizens had were catered to by Mr. Afroz Shah and his team.

The initiative has inspired our students to join such groups and focus on keeping the beaches free of waste. We are enthusiastically looking forward to more such clean up drives.
