World wildlife week-2015



We all know that humans are not going to sustain on this earth without other animals. Still we don’t want to realize the importance of wildlife. For us their extinction is just a decrease in number, but the reality is very ugly. As their number species decreases, so our time on this earth is also proceeding toward same side. Keeping this in mind we thought of spending some time thinking about them and celebrated world wildlife week. May be, we realize our mistake of not bothering about them. The event went on for three days. The first week of October celebrated as Wildlife week. We had a quiz competition with students participating happily in that. And then there was a small talk from Dr. Suryaprakash from School of Life Sciences, about the butterfly species in JNU and how they form an important part of our lives. A very ground level initiative has been taken on this occasion to solve the drinking water problem for animal in dry season. Various water pots had been placed throughout the campus. There were also other events like painting and photography along with movie screening on environmental issues. Overall, an awareness campaign had driven for animal welfare on this Wildlife Week.


Earth Day


"A true conservationist is the one who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children" by John Jmaes Audubon


We all need to understand that whatever resources mother earth is providing us today, they are not inherited by us from our predecessors, they are the property of our future generations, and not only ours, but each and every living beings on this earth. But for the human race, we uses them without any care for mother earth. Why earth to be called as MOTHER? Because it feeds us from the very beginning like a mother, takes care of your and our needs, helps us by providing resources in our tight days. Is not it what a mom does, all her life?


So, as a matter of fact, now don’t we owe some regards towards our mother earth? For that we the students of School of Environmental Sciences celebrated Earth Day on 22 April 2016, with Jairam Ramesh, Former Environment Minister, Govt. of India and many other environmentalists with the theme "CARING MOTHER EARTH". This programme was a wakeup call for all those who takes the services provided by nature for granted.


The programme included many events taking place all over the week from 16 April to 22 April.


Diya Deepawali


Amidst the darkness, a single ray of light gives you immense hope and happiness. That’s exactly what happens when we celebrate Diwali, lights and lights all around spreading happiness. It started like this, but with time, crackers came into the picture, making the picture dark instead of brightening it up by the smoke they produce. This darkness not only blocks the light but also is harmful for us as the smoke from crackers is also contributing in air pollution. So, we the Students of Environmental Sciences thought of something environmental friendly for the day of Diwali and changed it into Deepawali i.e; Deep+ Awali (lines). Celebration started on 9th November and lasted till 11 November.


For our surprise many people participated in this initiative making it as a success. The ideas depicted in paintings were really very good and creative. Many students, professors happily gave their views about the idea and supported and motivated us for further events.


Our only motto of celebrating Diwali in such a way was to make people aware about the pain environment is facing due to our excessive use of crackers. These crackers not only pollute our air but also produce enormous noise that frighten the wild animals even some children and old people. Diwali is a festival of happiness, so why not spread happiness and not fear or hatred.



A warm welcome to the modified and updated website of the Centre for East Asian Studies. The East Asian region has been at the forefront of several path-breaking changes since 1970s beginning with the redefining the development architecture with its State-led development model besides emerging as a major region in the global politics and a key hub of the sophisticated technologies.

The central objective is to impart an interdisciplinary knowledge and understanding of history, foreign policy, government and politics, society and culture and political economy of the respective areas.
