G.K. Enclave –II, Residents Abhor the  Metro Station Opening under Savitri Fly Over

by Sh. S.P. Mehra 

The Residents of G.K. Enclave II are feeling frightened at the prospects of the opening of Metro Station out-let under Savitry Fly Over. Mr. S.P. Mehra, Project Head of the Society says that  we fear that the colony will become a parking lot for the vehicles coming to drop or pick-up the daily passengers using this out let. The back lanes of the colony will become public urinals. The parks of the colony will have a large number of unwanted outsiders. Electric Rikshaws and Autos will clog the chicken-neck road opposite Savitri Cinema resulting in traffic jams. The inflow of outsiders through the main roads and back lanes of the colony will be a security hazard for the colony. The Residents and Plot Holders Society has already protested against the present location of this outlet and have submitted an alternative plan prepared by Sh. K.B. Rajouria, Ex.-Engineer-in Chief of Delhi Government who is also the president of Indian Road Congress. They plan Dharnas and protest marches along with the members of the neighbouring colonies if their voice remains unheard. Specific task force compressing of energetic youths is being formed for chalking out as security systems for meeting the challenges outlined above.

Colony Canvass Splashed With Colours
Burra  Na Mano Holi Hai !!
By Kapila Chopra 
The canvass of our colony was splashed with colours of all hues to welcome the spring festival, competing with bright coloured flowers of the colony parks and gardens .Drum beats and Holi songs filled atmosphere with joy. Although air was crisply cool unlike previous Holis , it didn't dampen the spirit of the colony children and residents to celebrate the festival of colours . With the festival knocking at in mid of March ,most of the school children had done away with their final examinations so it saw full swing participation in colony gatherings.
While some south Delhi colony wear a blanket of sophistication n  monotony , our residents just walk out on the streets to wish  just any one of the streets to spread the message of joy and love . Cool  cosy get togethers were organised by the RWAs of G ,H and E blocks in the colony parks and near St. John's School .
On Holi eve Bon fire (Holika Dahan) were lit by all men and ladies to mark the triumph of good over evil and take  blessings of fire Goddess by offering coconuts and sweets .on Holi day according to colony ladies it was a relaxing day as sumptuous lunch was prepared at the park . Most of the residents had great fun in the parks with traditional Bollywood songs , where cold drinks , gujiyas  , veg n non veg snacks were dutched  while the traditional Indian food buffet  was catered by RWA in G block and  H block while E block served brunch .Tambola with prizes made the event more entertaining  and worth remembering.
According to the new residents they have found GK 3 a very vibrant and happening place where all the festivals are celebrated by great energy and , so making it a very closely knit family where it's time to embrace your friends and neighbours  smothering their faces in unrecognisable primary colours of life , colours of fun, colours of brotherhood. Even GK2 residents feel GK 3 Is a safe place to play as people cheer  even the naughty teenagers who powder you with pucca colours saying 'Burra na mano Holi Hai ..... So its ' Holi ke din  dil mil jaate hain..........and 'Rang Barse 'every where ....... so next time just sneak in the colony to soak in all hues of festivities to beat blues of boredom else where .

Earth Hour Celebrated by Diligent Residents of GK Enclave 2, Masjid Moth & GK 3
Colonies Plunge Voluntarily Into Darkness To Participate In The Awareness Activity

By Anindita Roy 

A small SMS was circulated by BRPL requesting the consumers to switch off their lights from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm on 25th March. The diligent residents from our colonies circulated the message further through whatsapp groups and facebook messages. The result was a tremendous success of the ‘Earth Hour’ during which whole colonies switched off their lights for the stipulated hour honouring the movement to save electricity. This backing of the symbolic initiative to conserve energy by the residents does deserve Kudos.

According to the news, BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd (BRPL) and BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL), which cater to large parts of Delhi, saved around 113 MW and 95 MW of electricity, respectively, making for a total of 208 MW saving in BSES areas.BRPL and BYPL had also switched off all non-essential lights at their over 400 offices, spread across an area of around 950 sq km, during the appointed hour.

Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) that urges households and businesses across the world to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour at the appointed time to raise awareness on the need to take action on climate change. Earth Hour has one mission: to unite people to protect the planet and show they care about its future.

From habitat loss and degradation, to pollution, climate change and more, the threats facing the environment today present us with many challenges. To make the youth aware and to take precautions for the future of Earth, Earth Hour is more than a symbolic event as it aims to bring concrete solution during the time when challenges of climate change and environmental issues are all too real.

We hope that , by reducing our carbon footprint, both in our personal life and in the workplace, we can create a robust and environmentally safe world. Preserving the natural heritage of our planet is what Earth Hour is all about.
