Drug menace to be curtailed- Bulundshahr takes a lead: Nitin saxena

Bulundshahr (UP) – Bulundshahr is all set to take the de-addiction awareness campaign and career counselling programmes in colleges and schools to give an idea to the students to discover the helpless life of a drug addict and stay away from its demonic fangs. The programme on career-counselling will help the enthusiasts to know which career to choose in their life and the different avenues open to them to get skilled in it.

Rashtriya Mahavidalaya is the front runner in organising the event at their campus in B.B. Nagar which has scheduled it for February 10. Mahavidalaya Principal Dr Lalita said that it was essential to conduct such activities as part of the National Service Scheme (NSS) which will go a long way to prevent the young minds to stay aside from the drug menace. Career counselling, particularly in radio, is equally essential as radio-listening has become a way of life with mobile doing the yeoman’s service.

National Service Scheme coordinator Kavita Verma said that any event which is loaded with activities essaying the awareness of drug-menace is more impactful than just a lecture on the subject. “Alcholism is one of the major problem in the town and its neighbourhood with a few parents of the students being dipsomaniacs.  This is effecting the students in their studies and co-curricular activities,”she said and added that awareness has to be created on this front.

The programme is being conducted by the Sound of Nextgen (S.O.N.G.), India, an initiative of Vibhor Video Vision, a Delhi-based production house. Its Chairman, Devendra Chopra, told VSP News that it was necessary to pave a way for the young students to skill them in the world of radio broadcast which will the next happening thing in the country.

The activities on drug and alcohol have been designed by Devendra Narayan Mehta, commercial manager and marketing head of S.O.N.G., India. Talking to VSP News he said that all activities whether it is on perspective or expressions will keep the students’ interest alive and underline the message of ‘no drugs’ in a forceful manner.

S.O.N.G, India, project head, a renowned  radio jockey in Bhopal, Adhiraj Tiwari said that many youngsters are evincing interest in becoming radio jockey but they don’t find enough institutes and in this workshop I am going to detail the students of how radio jockeying can be a good career but hardwork is essential. “First, they have to be skilled, then employability will follow,” he said.
