spreading awareness about sanitation, solid waste management and water pollution. The
act was organised under the leadership of Mr. Vishal Tyagi, second year student of

Panch of village Mr. Rajeev Kumar, Dr. Paramjit Singh Kang from Department of Life Long
Learning & Extension, P.U., Dr. Gaurav Gaur from Centre for Social Work and many other
dignitaries were also present on the occasion.
The nukkad natak was very well appreciated by one and all present. Mrs. Asha Rani and
Mr. Sharma encouraged the drama team and said that such nukkad nataks carry the message in a better way, so more such nataks on other important issues should be conducted to make people aware.
The natak depicted that Narad ji came to earth for Brahman and was shocked to see the
pathetic situation of earth. There was littering of garbage, plastics and dry leaves
everywhere. People were practicing open defecation, increasing the risk of diseases like
cholera, diarrhoea, typhoid etc. The air and water were polluted. There was hue and cry
everywhere. He thought that how during Satyug, everything was clean and green on earth
and now in Kalyug, it is even difficult to breathe.
In a depressing mood, Narad ji went to God and requested him to save planet Earth. God
said that only way to save earth is to eradicate the root cause of all this. It can be
achieved by bringing behavioural changes to people and motivate health practices and
spreading cleanliness awareness among people. Narad ji came back to earth and gave a
Maha mantra of Swachhta Abhiyan to the people. In the last scene, everything was shown
clean and green and all the creatures on the earth were shown happy again. The message
given to the audience was “Aao Uthe, Jaage, Hath Milaaye, Aur Swachh Bharat Ke Sapne Ko Safal Bnaye”.
