Amritsar: While alcohol is the life of most parties in India, it actually leads to death. Consuming 30 ml of alcohol per day can subtract 80 minutes from a person’s life, said social worker Sandeep Bansal at a seminar organised by the Youth for Change Club of Spring Dale Senior School. He urged students to say no to the spirits in any form. Bansal stated that alcohol consumption has attained alarming proportions in India with the country surpassing Denmark that once topped the world in alcohol consumption. Principal Rajiv Kumar Sharma said the session would go a long way in making students aware of the negative effects of alcohol consumption.
Teez was celebrated at Sidana International School, Khiala Khurd, Ram Tirath Road, with great fervour. Students participated in the events with immense zeal and enthusiasm. Gidha and trinjan (folk singing) by girls were the main highlights of the function. Girls enjoyed swings. Jeewan Jyoti Sidana, managing director of Sidana Institutes, appreciated the efforts of the staff and students for the successful organisation of the event.
