Visit to the Maharashtra Legislature

On Monday, 1st July, the boys of standard 7th, 8th & 10th went for an educational visit to the Maharashtra Legislature (Vidhan Bhavan).  The Maharashtra Legislature comprises of the Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha) and Legislative Council (Vidhan Parishad).   The Speaker, Chief Minister and the Council of Ministers at the Legislative Assembly debated on  issues arising due to water scarcity and water clogging in low-lying areas of Mumbai. They further brought forth the need to ban plastic bags but also spoke of its aftermath with the rise of unemployment among the people working in large scale plastic making businesses. Later, the boys were taken to the Legislative Council where Mr. Vinod Tawde shed light on the importance of Marathi Language in schools and colleges, and spoke of different ways in which children can be engaged in learning Marathi with ease. It was definitely an enriching visit to understand our civil system.
