On Sunday, 19th February, early morning, a group of 100 plus students of Pathways World School, Aravali joined hands together, along with a score of faculty members to join in the PHDCCI (PHD Chamber of Commerce & Industry) sponsored Swachh Paryavaran Walk.
We left, after a slight delay, owing to traffic obstructions, for the venue.
The early morning quiet was regularly interrupted by the healthy laughter and the high spirits of the students on the buses. This was quite unusual from other trips where early morning gets us only the buzz of the occasional snore!!!
Arriving at the venue, Rajpath looked glorious as ever and the distant India Gate, covered partly in haze looked to be a plausible destination. Right through the journey, we had changed into the attire for the performances, donning the caps, t-shirts and the scarves and the badges.
The Guest of Honour, Col. Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Minister of State for Information & Broadcasting was welcomed by the members of the PHDCCI Governing Body. He addressed the assembled students and adults and encouraged them to work towards a clean, green environment and to assume responsibility as the future citizens of this planet.
He then flagged off the walk and witnessed the tableaus and performances of various schools.
Pathways Aravali was one of the key presenters in this section and a select group of enthused performers got the crowd standing still with their performance on the prestigious Rajpath.

With a myriad range of experiences shared by young adults all across the spectrum, we reached the India Gate, walking and performing to the audiences and crowds who had gathered there from far and wide to join in this mission of a cleaner environment.
