Environment as it stands today; is a subject much discussed but less used in our daily lives. If we can use and not abuse our ecology; we might make our lives better in every sense i.e. working in our gardens gives us mental peace, physical exercise, fresh fruits and vegetables and most of all; an immeasurable amount of joy, happiness and self-satisfaction which does not cost us anything. It has been added to the school and college curriculum but only in theory not in practise. Working on environmental projects would transform our generally lazy and irresponsible youth into responsible, practical citizens who would not shirk away from hard work whether in life or educational pursuits. Sitting in class the whole day does not ensure positive minded individuals ready to face the challenges of the world and contribute towards a better world by the dint of their hard work in trying to absorb the various theories prescribed in their course content. Universities all over the world have realised that holistic education needs to consist of certain projects which would give the students some practice of what they might encounter later on in life. Community service is something for which credit is given in the form of marks or grades. If education does not enable students to think beyond themselves and their selfish interests; whether it is a career or personal life; the world will be full of stress and strife.
