SHABIR IBN YUSUF
Srinagar May 30: The Rashtrapati Bhavan’s sustainability initiative—Roshni Prachodaya Society (Roshni)—on Wednesday got a new logo selected by President Pratibha Patil. The logo has been created by a Kashmir boy, Robin Singh.
Singh is a student of Kendriya Vidyalaya School, run by Border Security Force (BSF) in Bandipora district of north Kashmir. He is soon going to receive a cash reward for making the logo, which depicts the combination of a house and a tree.
Robin Singh, son of a BSF soldier, would receive a cash reward of Rs 10,000 at a felicitation ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan on World Environment Day on June 5.
Singh’s logo was selected among 3,276 entries submitted by schoolchildren across India.
Talking to Greater Kashmir Prem Nariynan, Principal of the School said it was a moment of pride for them. “We are jubilant. Robin did a fantastic job,” he said. “This is the result of his hardwork and dedication.”
Naraiynan informed that Robin is son of BSF soldier. “Robin is presently in Sansar for adventure sports and is returning after some days,” he said.
Official data suggested that for the initiative as many as 10,480 schools were contacted, thereby sensitizing an estimated 10.48 million students, and approximately 31 million members of their families. A total of 455 schools responded with 4,081 registrations and 3,276 final entries, which will open for public viewing from May 31 to June 2, officials said.
