In the wake of the recent NSS drive in the university, the enthusiasm among students seems to have not dwindled at all. In a surprising report, around 100 saplings were found planted in a few of the first tier colleges and around 60 planted in other colleges. Though the spirit of the students is appreciable, the colleges are in a fix. With so many saplings planted in the campuses, there arises a possibility that trees will occupy half the area, leaving little space to move around. It will certainly add to the beauty of the campuses, for who does not like a green campus? But since the green-overdrive will practically cover the entire area, the authorities had to look towards an alternative to uprooting. “We cannot allow them to be uprooted or cut down in a few years. We have to find another solution,”said a faculty member of Sri Venkateswara College.

On Wednesday, the concerned authorities came to a final decision. Colleges are to have in-campus mini Botanical Gardens. The decision had to come from the VC himself. “So many trees have been planted and we had to put them to good use. I believe this is a pretty good solution,” remarked a senior teacher. The arrangement for the gardens will begin soon with the NSS volunteers taking part in their respective colleges. An ex-candidate for the Ramjas College elections said, “This is a great change. Who would have thought such over-enthusiasm would lead to this! Now we even have a reason for the stray animals running around the campus!” Well good reasons or not, in-campus gardens will certainly make other universities go green, albeit with envy,eh?
