The Award in Action: ‘Say No to Drugs’ Street Play by BLPS Award Participants

 If the Youth arise and act; they have the Strength & Dynamism to generate a huge Transformation in the Society!

The students of BLPS pursuing the Silver Award of The International Award for Young People performed a Street Play titled ‘Say No to Drugs’ to spread Anti-drug awareness in the society. Street Play is the new weapon in a bid to control growing drug abuse among youth.

The students performed for an audience of Kapurthala at Jallow Khana, Railway Station & Bus Stand to sensitize the general public about the ill-effects of drug abuse and its effect on the health of humans and society. The students left the audience spellbound with their awestruck performance and succeeded to make an emotional appeal.

They inspired the folks to refrain from the use of drugs. The young students intrigued the folks well. They motivated them to play their role as responsible citizens in society and make checks on such evil acts. The students, through their impressive dramatization of the characters and highlighting their sufferings, are determined to bring a change in the world with their small bit. These young learners made a call to the audience to join the movement and take a pledge to help addicts recover. These short plays portrayed the traumatic life of a drug addict and the emotionally shattering experience the family of an addict has to go through. The idea is to dissuade impressionable youth from the fake glamour of drug culture. These plays provided an insight into the anguish of the drug addicts and their family members. The battle against drugs clearly needed to be taken to the street as drug addiction is eating our society as termites.

The International Award for Young People, India has played an important role in making our students understand their responsibility towards society.
Thank you IAYP!
