Campal Creek Mother’s Day Celebration
Mother’s Day has traditionally been the day when we have worked on the Campal Creek. Last year on the 12th of May, 2013 the energy for its rehabilitation was well and hungry, with even the Chief Minister of Goa joining us in celebrating the revival of the Creek on which a lot of hopes of an environment miracle, rested!
Since it was Mother's Day we dedicated this day to Mother Nature and took the opportunity of unveiling the conceptual sketch of "UZO" The Chief Minister Mr.Manohar Parrikar made the honours of unveiling the sketch. He also took a ride into the Creek. BIG 92.7 FM were our partners and had a live coverage of the whole programme. Everyone present especially the kids had a lot of fun.
13th of May 2012 of May 2012 being the day when we fired up the imagination of so many Goans about the possibility of making this waterway a pride of Goa! Our endeavour was to make people realize that the Campal Creek is a creek, and not a nullah, and that it is well on the way of getting back to its pristine best. Prominent people who joined us were CCP Commissioner, Mr. Sanjit Rodrigues; Singer, O’Luv Rodriguez; Green activist, Fr. Bismarque Dias; noted Architect, Bryan Soares; President of Campal Residents Association, Deric Rebelo; Prudent Media Chief, Sandesh Prabhudesai; Kabir Makhija and others.
With our mission on the way to being accomplished, which can be seen from the love and affection that we have received from a wide section of people of Goan origin or without, we set about fixing our vision at cleaning up the waterways, streets and most importantly, the spirit of Goa!
And this year we have every reason to celebrate as the Campal Creek will finally be beautified with the CCP being sanctioned a fund of Rs. 19.5 crore.
We at Goa ForGiving and Heritage Jazz will be organising a Mother's Day Celebration by the Campal Creek on the 11th of May, dedicating this day to Mother Nature!
We request the presence of all the people to be with us on that day as we clean up and celebrate the Creek with music, song, fun and many other activities.
