Time for a Power Cut Again!
by Many a, XU C
Talking about Ghaziabad specifically Burgeoning population, booming industries, sprawling malls; all these have one thing in common—they guzzle electricity. Till now, the government has been providing them the much-needed power by cutting down electricity meant for households and villages but for how long?
Unfortunately, power supply has been limited in contrast to our demand which know no boundaries. Till the time government works out a long-term solution in terms of nuclear energy, we as responsible citizens should make the judicious use of electricity. Here’s a slew of measures that can be taken.
Switch off all lights, fans, coolers, ACs and geysers immediately after use. One must avoid unnecessary and extravagant display of lights, especially on marriages and other functions.
Everyone must make optimum use of sunlight by using solar lamps, geysers and coolers. Moreover, light fixtures must be kept clean and dirt free so that there is no wastage of power. As citizens of a responsible country, theft of electricity should be prevented and pay electricity bills regularly.
Pledge together to SAVE ELECTRICITY NOW.
Remember, it’s now or never!

Wrong Strategy Spoils Right Cause
by Priya, Special Correspondent
Chennai: 6th April, 20XX: While driving towards the office, the commuters get engulfed with numerous unusual traffic jams. The irony with the jams was that it emerged as a result of a special drive against the pollution causing vehicles launched by the Chennai traffic police.

Relief Measures for Fire Victims
by Sweety, Secretary, Co-Curricular Activities Club
A major area of slums under the new overbridge in the city was rocked by a fire of great intensity in the morning hours of 8th March. People were caught unaware by the sudden sound of a cylinder blast and within no time the whole area was engulfed in smoke. People rushed out of their houses in great panic but some were trapped in the blaze.
In a bid to offer some relief students of co-curricular Activities Club visited that area and the school held its emergent meeting to transport and distribute relief care packages. Collection points were fixed and announced by the students to deposit their contribution. A special forum was set up to collect other necessary items such as clothes, blankets, tents etc. The funds collected will also be used effectively for rehabilitation purposes.
Inspired by school’s efforts many other government and private agencies too rushed for immediate help.
