Project “Amal-Vari” to be launched on June 4

On the eve of World Environmental Day, Enactus Dr SS Bhatnagar UICET, Panjab University, would launch its project, “Amal-Vari”, on June 4 at the PU. The project, “Amal-Vari”, envisions empowering society with clean and affordable drinking water solution. The launching function will be held at the Vice-Chancellor Committee Room at the Vice-Chancellor’s office on June 4 at 11 AM. This project is aimed at benefiting the potters community and the poor communities. “Amal-Vari” will offer to achieve the elusive and expensive goal of clean and affordable drinking water by using ultra low cost filters. It would use clay instead of plastic, avoiding leaching of hazardous chemicals from plastic to drinking water during storage. The potters community is facing the wrath of modernisation and poor communities have to bear the drudgery of sustaining on unclean water in disguise.

Results announced

Panjab University has announced the results of BArchitecture, ninth semester, MTech (instrumentation), third semester, MPhil English, first semester and BE (Bio-Tech), fifth semester. The detailed results would be available on the PU website,

Talk delivered

A talk on “War on Earthquakes: Civil Defense Through Awareness” was delivered by earth scientist Prof Arun Deep Ahluwalia at the rotary international office here on Monday. He emphasised that Panjab University was doing this outreach before World Environment Day as a responsibility towards society and public safety. “The City Beautiful is situated right on the Pinjore-Chandigarh fault that has been active a few centuries back and lessons learnt from nearly 300 shocks in Nepal must not be forgotten,” he said. “He said seismologists have been expecting a massive quake much bigger than Assam, Kangra and Bihar where millions could die if houses are not made safer by use of science & technology and a system is not evolved to fight the calamity on a war-footing similar to civil defense done in the 1962, 1965,1971 wars. We need to create a national mindset to fight a war on earthquake and save lives and buildings by scientific temper and systematic action,” he said. All educational institutes have a big role to play. — TNS
