    The World Sparrow Day was celebrated at Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani – Pilani Campus on 20th March, 2018.

The event was attended by both children and adults, of which around thirty children, from 1st to 10th standards, presented creative performances and enthusiastically participated in various activities. Performances included poetry recitation, skit, songs and dance. Some children had also drawn posters that informed about the importance of sparrows. The activities included hop-a-thon game, identifying birds by their sounds, and a short story competition. A photograph booklet prepared by Ms. Samakshi Tiwari, M.Sc. Biological Sciences student, capturing the bird diversity at BITS Pilani campus, was also displayed on this occasion. The event concluded with a bird origami workshop by Mr. Swapnil Bhure, ME student at BITS. Gifts and prizes, which included Amar Chitra Katha books about Dr. Salim Ali, the birdman of India, and earthen nest boxes for sparrows, were distributed to children by Mrs. Rakhi Sarkar and Mrs. Nirmal Bhataiya.
