Is in Parul University for interaction with students on enviormental issues
“Social media helps me a lot in my mission to aware people about saving the environment. People joined me in my efforts and someday I will create my own green army to save trees and nature for us,” said bollywood actress, environmentalist and social worker Tanisha Mukerji. She was in Vadodara at Parul University for a talk on the topic Environment- Stand and make a difference.
Tanisha is known for works in Bollywood and South movies before she shot to fame with her appearance in television reality show Bigg Boss 7 comes out as the first runner up. Later away from the stardom she started her own NGO STAMPS which aims to create a better environment for the children.
“We believe in encouraging everyone to put their stamp on this earth by planting trees as a symbol of themselves. It’s now a bigger issue and we have three years to reverse climate change. The recent rains and other calamities are the sign of destroying nature and it’s high time now to stand up to the issue and bring back the green past for our future,” said Tanisha.
Tanisha is now working with Navy training centre at INS Shivaji in Lonavala and planting trees to develop a forest at the land. She thanked the Navy for their help in developing the forest as it will increase the ground water level and also stop the soil erosion in the area.
“We need to plant lots of trees to save the environment for further generations. Most of us don’t know about the bad effect of plastic, mobile batteries and others on environment and need the generations to connect with the environment as much as they do with their phones. The awareness is the most vital part and we are planning to approach the schools and children to plant a tree of their own near their house, school and nearby areas. I feel a grade system related to environment in school curriculum can be a great help to create awareness towards the issue,” said Tanisha.
Tanisha also added that plant lots of native trees as per the area is beneficial as it can grow as per the natural environment. On his first visit to Vadodara she thanked the Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad for developing the city green.
“It’s a wonderful experience at Parul university by interacting with the students on environment issues. They are eager to know many things and wants to join the movement. I hope in future we can materialise some plans in this area with the university. The city is beautiful as I find many areas as green zones which gives me refreshing thoughts. I thanked the maharaja for its efforts as the city is named after Banyan tree. I love the pani puri here and find the state clean, people loving and warm which makes me feel like a family,” said Tanisha before signing off from Vadodara with a promise to visit again.
After a long break Tanisha Mukerji will be seen in a movie Code Name Abdul shot in US based on ISI, RAW agents. The film is scheduled to release in the month of January.
