It was part of a state level NSS programme conducted virtually .All the teachers present representatives of the Administration wing and five volunteers gathered in front of the college. We all moved towards the front garden of the college with saplings held in our hands like lamps. Dr .Parvaty ,Dean of Arts and Mr. Sanal ,head of the Administration in our college planted a sapling each in the garden inaugurating the programme. The volunteers were also asked to plant the saplings they had sprouted during the lockdown period in their home garden on the same day. It was amid a lot of apprehensions regarding Covid Protocol and the spread of the pandemic that this programme was conducted.
- ‘Yoga the music of life’ – Practice of Yoga during the period of lockdown: Yoga Day is observed on 21 June every year. The senior volunteers were already very much aware of Yoga and its benefits from awareness classes and practice sessions conducted during the previous year.

Almost all our volunteers practised these Aasanas throughout the period of lockdown.

It was certainly an enlightening discussion for several of our volunteers. The programme was on the 1st of August, 2020.

Our volunteers, though held up in their locality due to lockdown took upon themselves the task of making masks and distributing them to the needy in their neighbourhood. The task of making masks and sanitisers started in July and the volunteers take it as an ongoing programme that has to last until Kerala gets freed of the threat of the pandemic.

- A Cloak of Care on Pain-‘ An effort to ease the pain of the bed-ridden patients: Palliative Care is an area that the NSS units are actively engaged in. Several bed- laid patients in and around places of residence of our volunteers comforted with care by our volunteers. It was a boon to them especially in the context of the lockdown declared in order to bring down the rate the spread of Covid-19.Some of these patients were left in the agony of lonliness and isolation during the daytime. The presence of volunteers in their home and near them really comforted them .In fact the Palliative unit commenced working as part of the NSS units of our college only the previous year. Considering this short span of time, the work of the NSS units in this regard is certainly commendable.
