“The scorching summer heat that we experienced in Coimbatore and across the whole country this year is perhaps the teaser of a horror movie to follow” said Mrs Vanitha Mohan, Managing Trustee, Siruthuli. She was speaking at the Installation of Office Bearers of The Advertising Club, Coimbatore on 14.6.24. Mother Nature has been giving us various signals to stop the massive exploitation of Natural resources by Man to meet his greed. The large scale drilling of borewells and the letting of sewage water into the tanks  around Coimbatore are causing  massive harm. Its high time we mend our ways and start living in harmony with nature. She urged The Advertising Club to take up a major project to sensitise people about Climate Change.
