Children should boycott their father or relatives who come to home in inebriated condition making the elder realize the worst web of addiction they are caught in, said Assistant Media Advisor to Punjab government and Chairman Joshi Foundation Vineet Joshi while addressing an anti-drugs program at Swami Shivananda Sarvhitkari Senior Secondary School here today at Morinda.
Joshi accompanied by Chairman Punjab Infotech S. Manjit Singh Rai, SMO Chamkaur Sahib Dr IJS Bhatia and Principal of the school Sharda Maurya said this small step will sow seeds for Drugs-Free Punjab. He motivated the students to tell their fathers clearly that neither they should consume liquor at home nor they should come home drunk, else the children will boycott each time elders come drunk. Not only so they should also ask the same to their paternal and maternal uncles and also to their family friends.
Studies show that tendency of synthetic drugs is much more among the youth of the families where elderly consume liquor or Cigarette.
Elaborating the the ill effects of drugs Joshi said that brain, eyes, chest, stomach, liver, kidney, legs, heart, etc suffer massive damage and clearly told them the day they start consuming synthetic drug their life is not more than five to six years.
School is the second home of the students and teachers are their shadow parents, so, their proactive role can save future generation, opined Joshi while appealing the teachers.
Making sports compulsory, daily one period should be dedicated to ensure physical endurance among students. One period daily dedicated for national heroes will instill patriotism and positive thoughts among students, suggested Manjit Singh Rai.
Dr Bhatia exhorted students to adopt disciplined and healthy life style. Daily three time meals with green vegetables, twice a day milk and no to junk food will ensure them in good health guided Bhatia.
