Cleanliness is next to holiness and in order to bring this holiness, we must have that responsibility. As its rightly said that in order to serve GOD, we should serve humanity. The surroundings we live in are clean but there are many areas which have worst conditions. So GeoCool organized a cleanliness drive on 07-08-2010 in one of the similar areas is near Sec 21 Pkl i.e., Azaad Colony which is a slum area. It started at around 7 30am in the morning. Things like brooms, bags (to collect garbage), etc. were carried by us. The area was literally not in a good condition. We started with the cleanliness process. There was a water passage which was almost blacked by the garbage. We cleaned as much of the area as it was possible for us. We even talked to the people living there and spread awareness regarding cleanliness i.e., they should maintain the area in which they are living in so as people dont fall ill because of the unhealthy surroundings. It was a great event and one of the SEVA PROJECTS of GeoCool. We hope it turns to be helpful for the community.

Gulf Of Mexico Oil Spill

After 45 days ,Oil Spill continues to take place in the Gulf of Mexico. It happened when thick oil pipe got busted at the bottom of the Ocean leading to the destruction of well and as a result OIL SPILL and it is going at a very rapid rate.
Take a look at the photo below-

What a disaster!!!!!!!!

Destruction

Take a look at this oil sheen-

WORST!!!!!!!!!!

Till now we have lost  21864090 gallons of the oil and all that lost oil has created a oil shell over the sea. I decided to publish a post on this because this is one of the way through which we pollutes our nature (although its by human error but destruction is destruction,it occurs). Share your thoughts about this members as it’s one of the greatest oil spill case and sources said that govt still needs one month more to make a recovery well. So you can think of how much we loose till that 😦

Today i got these pics- Terrible 😦

Surviving in the oil 😦
