Happy Move - Save our Heritage, An initiative by Hyundai Motor India...

"We owe this Earth to our future generations"
The most visible landmarks of this Earth are the heritage monuments. We might have inherited these monuments in a fragile state, but it is our duty to make it better for coming generations.
Country like India which is going full throttle on the development road; there is need to stop a while, look around and think about the values and culture we need to carry along with. In our quest to move into future, we should not forget our roots, our past and our glorious heritage. In absence of proper maintenance, most of jewels of our heritage are lying in dilapidated condition. Small awareness and small efforts by everyone can make a big difference in preserving these symbols of cultural expressions and evolution.
One of such initiative, “Happy Move – Save our Heritage” has been taken by Hyundai Motor India Ltd. (HMIL) to spread awareness about preserving the heritage.

11th July 2017, Inauguration of 3rd phase of Happy Move was the time to join hands at Humayun Tomb for spreading awareness and sensitizing people towards preserving our heritage.

It was a heartwarming occasion seeing 125 Youth Volunteers; 100 from South Korea and 25 from India joining hands for this noble cause. People from diverse cultures formed a team to undertake activities like cleaning the premises, gardening, planting saplings and painting the infrastructure.

Language and cultural differences simply did not matter as everyone was busy in playing his/her part in beautifying the premises.




While interacting with Hyundai officials and media persons about this initiative, came across Isa Khan Tomb in the premises, which is under restoration by ASI. Check out the restoration work on right hand side pillars and walls..

A glance is enough to emphasize the importance of preserving our heritage.

This unique awareness drive is being conducted by Hyundai in association with Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) at the 4 heritage sites of Purana Qila, Qutb Minar, Humayun Tomb and Red Fort.
The volunteers of this program will also connect with school children with a number of innovative activities for development of school facilities and also to raise the awareness in school children about our heritage.
After all everyone likes to enjoy neat and clean heritage sites to feel proud in the culture of our country. Being invited to be a part of this event, it was a moment of realisation that even small steps are sufficient to make a difference. Likewise; disposing the waste at designated place, not walking at the grass lawns and following the mentioned rules will ensure everyone can enjoy the experience of visiting the heritage places. 
Thanks and Kudos to Hyundai for such an initiative, New Thinking making way for New Possibilities in preserving rich heritage of India…
