Spring Fest is not just about fun, it's about having fun while doing your social responsibility.
India Calling is an event where you can use your ideas to improve your country on a platform where all the bright minds of the country are present. So if you've got that path breaking idea that you know is gonna change the state of our country, this is the place and the setting

"Today we're seeing that climate change is about more than a few unseasonably mild winters or hot summers. It's about the chain of natural catastrophes and devastating weather patterns that global warming is beginning to set off around the world.. the frequency and intensity of which are breaking records thousands of years old." The words of US president Barack Obama shows the urge and haste this topic needs, climate change now is a potent threat to mankind itself.


Time has come to think so that we leave our footprints and not carbon footprints behind. Climate change is such a concern now that it is affecting all the spheres of a country. Economically cutting emissions may lead to loss and wastage to a country's industrial strength. Social status of people is also negatively affected when they are told to be energy efficient.
