STILL LIFE: Revenge Of Mother Earth - Earth Day

Wake up call on Earth Day
________________________

Famously Ex Vice President and Noble Laureate Al Gore started a debate on sustainability some years back and the need to have more forest cover and limit green house gases actively, so that the Next Gen can actually live... But slowly the deluge of media hype around it died down to a trickle and now we hear about it some times, on special day like today - Known as Earth Day


Revenge Of Mother Earth @ Worli, Mumbai
I have been interested in the sustainability project for decades and started using bicycle to go to office on week ends (Yes, most professional Indians go to office on Saturday and some times on Sundays unlike other counterparts across the globe)... but the things are still not changing the way it should i.e. actively. So here is one little step to create an awareness about it and pledge to be more Green Conscious in times to come...

To begin with we have a beautiful planet earth...


Planet Earth (IMG Curtsy Internet - FreeExtras)
But we are striving very hard, collectively of course, to become like our nearest heavenly body ASAP...


Moon @ 2013
Recently I have been to some beautiful place in Himalaya... like Jageshwar...

Jageshwar @ 2012
And I believe that's the way, our planet should look like ...

But then I have also visited Shimla (The most beautiful Hill resort, so much preferred by British Rulers that they made it into Summer Capital of India) last year and was shocked to see beautiful green Himalayan peak tops changed into coarse dirty roof tops...


Shimla @ 2012
...and the progress of modernity is moving along on slow but steady road roller ride... The forests are denuded without any remorse and if some trees are left, they are left 'raped and deflowered' like this one on the another hill side of Shimla...


Shimla @ 2012
But I think Mother Earth will not take it lying down...Sooner or later, she will rise up and engulf all that is plaguing her beautiful face... 


Mumbai @ 2012
And there are still some amazing warriors left, who do make the difference in their own small or big way... 


The Man who made a forest in Assam India

Jadav Payeng is an environmental activist and forestry worker from Jorhat, Assam, India. He upgraded a chapori of the river Brahmaputra to a reserve forest with a total area of the forest is about 1000 hectares. To know more about him, click here...



Well all is not lost, because even businessmen in their day to day life of making money, like Felix Denis, want to do something for the Planet Earth. Over the last ten years, he has established a young forest of native deciduous trees, covering one thousand acres with approximately 600,000 saplings planted to date.

Hope on this Earth Day, today, we think about the place where we live in and do something to sustain and secure Earth for the Next Generation...
