YOU are responsible

Global Warming is not a local issue but a global issue

Yes, you read it right. This time my words would be direct and not sugar coated. YOU are responsible for global warming. It’s not YOU alone but many like you. It’s easy to play a blame game but difficult to swallow the truth. Is the West responsible more than anyone else? Definitely yes but YOU are no less. Incessant pollution, deforestation and what not…. I cant even think of what YOU are doing. Are YOU in your senses? Or can YOU go to any extent to satisfy your needs? YOU selfish HUMAN! It’s high time when YOU wake up man! YOU are the root cause and you got to accept the fact without contradicting it. Will YOU ever do something or sleep over it. Don’t YOU remember, “We’ve not inherited Earth from our forefathers but borrowed it from future generations”? Isn’t that enough?
After all, WHEN? JUST WHEN?
Forget about big steps take small measures atleast. Come on now! Make sure YOU are not a liability on this planet. If others don’t do anything Just DO IT and let’s ALL make it happen.

Anti Crackers Diwali

Anti Crackers DiwaliI am very proud to state that this time my Diwali was completely an anti-crackers one. It was all the more pleasing to read about the drop in sales of crackers along with the decrease in the air pollution level in many cities across the country. It clearly shows that the mindset of the people is changing.

What can be a better piece of news than this?

Yes, we are being the change and definitely we all can collectively do it. It’s not about simply reading about environment conservation and sleeping over it. It’s a matter of taking an action NOW. Little steps go a long way in determining our future…

Spending huge amounts on crackers alone is nothing to flaunt. Instead that is foolishness and nothing else. So; respect for all those who were environment friendly this year and let it be our responsibility to inspire others to refrain from anti-environment activities.

World Earth Day

Each Day Earth DayApril 22 marks World Earth Day. Earth is such a precious gift to us that we have forgotten in our selfish nature the harm we are causing to it. Hustle and Bustle of urbanization has resulted in a lot of tribulations. We are relentlessly depleting the natural resources without realizing the repercussion. Earth Day need not be celebrated only once a year but every day in our day- to- day activities. The time has gone when sermons would function. Our everyday contribution can make a lot of difference. Carbon emissions are increasing like anything and to add to human miseries the recent natural ash clouds due to the burst of Volcano in Iceland has caused inconvenience.

We not be a carborexic who are fanatics but we can do little bit like planting trees, using CFLs, paying E-bills, conserving the energy by switching off lights, etc.  More and more business organisations are opting for green offices and buildings which is a welcome step. Such techniques need to be adopted at individual as well as government level for a greener future. Simple steps can go a long way to shape the future of the coming generations because we have not inherited the Earth from our forefathers but we have borrowed it from our future generations. Everything is up to us only. It is we who can do it. The question arises that If not Earth, where? If not now, when? And if not you, who? We are the writers of our future. The power lies in our hand, so why not act now?
At this time, I am reminded of the 2 lettered 10 words that are very motivational taught to us in schools that, “If it is to be, it is up to me.” So, if it is to be globally, it has to be locally. Think globally to act locally.

Ganga Waters

Ganga as it used to BE...The holy waters of river Ganga hold a symbolic significance in the hearts of religious minded people across borders. Their religious believes pulls them from their cozy and comfortable homes to the lands of the sacred river either to perform religious practices or bathe. They forget in their minds that they are in turn polluting the river. They snatch away the purity of the river. Which religious book, priest or the like has given the sermon to pollute the river and perform the rituals? The ashes of humans give in toxic substances due to decomposition, which leads to many deadly ailments. Not only human ashes, the industrial waste are also dumped into river waters, which again causes the same effect. The debris has lead to killing of the river.

Polluted Ganga

Years ago, Coliform was found in human intestines which caused serious implications. Not only this, scientists have proven that Ganga water (in specified regions) is no longer safe to drink. This is all a result of human work. We no longer enjoy crystal clear water gushing down the stream. All we can see are huge masses of dust clouds clinging on to the air. It’s high time when we realize the impact we are having on the environment and on holy waters. Pollution is all we are contributing towards the nature. We need to minimize our impact.
The possible solution is to electrically cremate the deceased who has probably left for heavenly abode. Though religious minded people oppose this pragmatic idea but this is the best way to keep the “MOTHER earth” happy. Electric cremations will reduce the air pollution and creation of new crematorium fields by felling of trees. We talk so high of saving the earth but in reality do such acts and forget about the damage we cause to her. She is always pleading us to protect her from damage and destruction and gives evidence from natural disasters and calamities.
So, wake up! Act now! It’s now or never…… Spread awareness among masses.

Plastic Bags

Abandon PlasticsThe monotonous student’s life ensues, long lectures to save environment, conserve resources, control pollution, etc. These lectures (wise sayings) even inspire the future of tomorrow-the children, to conserve our fragile Earth. We’ve been taught since time immemorial to save Earth, not to use polythene bags, etc but how many of us actually listen and act to such things? These are just the waste sayings, which are heard from one ear and passed off from the other. What we need is pragmatic approach to reach to the apex of success.
Plastic bag is one of the things, which is extremely hazardous to every person’s life. A person uses tons of such bags; from colorful packets of clothes to the bags of bread, curd, cakes, milk and innumerable things.
Not only they choke the drains, they also imbalance the ecosystem. When these bags are thrown on land, the percolation (i.e. penetration of water) stops; plants do not grow and many useful insects also die.
When thrown in water, they do not let oxygen to enter beneath them and aquatic life is disrupted which affects the life of fishermen also. So, the whole mankind is dependant on environment, something that has given us birth. We have grown from this land and will die in this land only!
Just like states of Himachal Pradesh and Delhi have adopted very eco-friendly methods in the same way, the need of the hour is to work on such projects. The possible solutions that ought to be taken by the Government are: ban on polythene bags just like out capital has done and using jute/cotton/nylon/cloth bags.
Although the shopkeepers in Delhi are very plaintive because they said that other bags would really cost a lot for them because the prices were not affordable. The normal poly-bad just costs them about Rs.10 and other bags (such as jute bags) would cost them around Rs.50. So, the shopkeepers felt that they would be in debt and there would be more loss than the profits they earn.No Plastics Please
Even though prices are a bit high in this world of recession and inflation, the authorities must ponder over such mind-boggling issues and issue such bags on very subsidized rates to the shopkeepers. We call the Earth ‘Mother Earth’ but a very simple question arises that do we treat our mother’s as we to this Mother Earth? All the people of the world must consider the earth as their own and try to reduce the Carbon footprint as well. We all must join hands together as we did in case of terrorism to fight against those non-environment people and burn the mid night oil to make this ‘mother’ more green and clean.
Other states must also ban polythene bags and make this wonderful creation of Lord a better place to live in so that the saying “Live and Let Live” remains in the hearts of the people.
