In a unique awareness programme ‘Jal Hosh’, a group of students are spreading the message to ‘save water’ ahead of the Holi festival which will be celebrated on March 20. They are holding street dance performances across the city on March 16-17.

The idea for the initiative is initiated by Anita Neve’s Dance Academy and is supported by people from all walks of life. The students used the medium of ‘Bharatanatyam’ to narrate a story on ‘one should not waste water’ during Holi.

The students performed at Savitribai Phule Pune University at 8 am, on Saturday and then proceeded to Fergusson College road, Bal Gandharva chowk, Shaniwar Wada and Kothrud, at Shivaji Putla, where the group was joined by member of legislative assembly (MLA) Medha Kulkarni.

“The innovative programme is called ‘Jal Hosh’ which is to deliver a message of saving water when the city is facing water cuts,” said Kishore Sarpotdar of Poona Guesthouse who is supporting the event.

The dancers will continue with their performances on Sunday in Kalyaninagar, Vimannagar, Vishalnagar and Kharadi.
