The gathering at Salahuddin Road, Deira, on the morning of October 19 made for an impressive sight as the employees lined up in the formation of the ETA Ascon Star Group logo.

Syed M. Salahuddin, Managing Director of the group, who also participated in this event, stressed upon the importance of adopting simple measures to judiciously use the resources available to us in our daily lives. Only this would make the pledge meaningful, he said.

“Nature is nature,” he said, adding that unlike man-made marvels which we tired of easily, natural beauty like the seas and the mountains are always a refreshing experience. “We must do everything we can to protect Nature,” he pointed out.
