  • Title of the practice: “Spraying of ecofriendly biopesticides to control the vectors of Malaria , Dengue, and Chikungunia diseases 

The Context: The malaria disease is caused by protozoan pathogen ; Chikungunya and dengue diseases are caused by the viral pathogen and all the pathogens are carried by mosquito as vector. Both the disease are highly dangerous and epidemic one. The female Anopheles Mosquito when bite the human, suck the blood from infected people and transmit it to the blood of fresh people. The protozoa Plasmodium sp complete its half life cycle in the body of human and other half within the body of Mosquito .

2. Objectives:

a. To stop the Life cycle of Mosquito.

b. To stop transmission of Malaria , Dengue and chickengunia, pathogens.

c. To apply the eco-friendly ,non pollutantbiopestide to control the Mosquito within the campus. 

The Practice : The mosquito lay their eggs in the water and multiply in numbers. The drains, water reservoirs, and many open pots retain water and that are the main sources for the multiplication of Mosquito in the campus as well as adjacent areas of the college campus. In place of spraying chemical pesticides which are highly fatal, causing cancerous diseases, impaired soil health, also poisoned other aquatic life processes, we have selected swietenia macrophilla leaves to prepare leaves extract and to spray the juice in the water body of our campus as well as adjacent areas of the campus. The extract is prepared on the following way :

I. Collect 250 grams fresh leaves and chopped into small pieces with the help of chopper and then taken in the mixer grinder with 10 ml. water.

II. Grinding until to paste.

III. In a can take the paste and addapproximately 1 liter water with it and then shaken properly.

IV. With the help of filter or clean cloth the mixture is filtered and the filtrate is taken into the sprayer.

V. The filtrate issprayed with the help of sprayer into the water bodies as well as different place of the campus and adjacent areas to the campus.

VI. As mosquito complete its life cycle within a week we have the moto tospray the filtrate once in a week.

VII. The emphasis is given mainly on the aquatic places and also in the darker areas, corners of the classrooms, basal sides of the boundaries, toilets and wash rooms, etc.

VIII. Through awareness program we motivate our students to follow this and adjacent people of our campus are also being motivated through NSS activities.

4. Obstacles:  We have convinced our students through seminar that the chemical pesticides have adverse effects on both biotic and a biotic components of the environment. The chemical residues destroy the quality of soil, water, air, food, causes genetical disorders, physiological deformities, diseases, mortality rate, bio-accumulation and biomagnifications trigger effects ofunforeseen consequences. So the flora as well as fauna will be critically affected. To check this dangerous effect we have to follow the eco-friendly pesticides the biopesticides like swieteniamacrophylla- a plant based pesticides. Through NSS camp we have convinced the common people: Biopesticides that can reduce pesticides risks.

5. Impact: of the practice:. The extract is harmless and have no side effects if we use the water mixed with the extracts for cooking and drinking . This concept is focused to the students coming from different parts of the district and also beyond the state. Students Circulated this message to the environment and also used the sap in their own household . The people of adjacent areas also followed this method and practiced this to remove the dengue, Chikungunya and Malaria fever.

6. . Resources required : a. Biopesticides- Extract from the leaves as experimental tool of Switenia macrophylla. It is already present in the environment and easily available in huge amount. b. Sprayer – Ordinary low priced one. c. Mixer -Grinder or prepare paste in the mortar and pestle. So this is bearable for any family.

  • Title of the Practice  : No Vehicles Day

The Objectives of the practice – The basic objective of the practice is to create an overall awareness about the environmental pollution created by the fuel driven vehicles. For ensuring sustainable transportation as well as energy conservation, vehicle users are to encouraged to restrict the unnecessary use of vehicles as far as practicable.

The Context - Pollution is a major problem faced by the world.  While the predominant pollutants in petrol/gasoline driven vehicles are hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide, the predominant pollutants from the del based vehicles are Oxides of nitrogen and particulates. The emission of air pollutants from fossil fuel combustion is the major cause of urban air pollution. Burning fossil fuels is also the main contributor to the emission of greenhouse gases.

The Practice – All the campus users are urged not to use fuel driven vehicles for undertaking their to and fro journey to the campus. Implementing this policy for two days in a year is a significant step towards promoting sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of transportation. Not only that this practice adopted by the campus users is expected to encourage the neighbouring people positively to restrict the use of their respective vehicles for less important issues                                                 

  5. EvidenceofSuccess –  Many a campus users was found to use their bi-cycles or hired e-rickshaw to attend the college , while many others living in the close proximity to the college walked on foot to attend the college. Not only that , they also encouraged their friends, relatives to adopt the practice by warning them about the dangers of environmental pollution arising out of the emissions of fuel driven vehicles

     6.Problems Encountered and Resources Required

Restricting the use of fuel driven vehicles, especially the two-wheelers created genuine problems for a good number of students living in rural areas without having adequate public transport services. A good number of students living in nearby villages had to face a problem in reaching the campus in time.

 

  • Sometimes Principal makes surprise – Checking in the college gate to deter students from carrying Tobacco and related items to the campus. Students are always asked for maintaining a Tobacco free life.
  • The College encourages performance of Rabindra Sangeet, Dance and Drama in the cultural Functions of the College.
