Had a so called pleasant time to know how we have destroyed our Mother Earth!
But, honestly felt proud to be among those who are trying to develop approaches towards sustainable development. But, just being there and listening with a few goosebumps would not make any difference, a solid determination to tackle this problem is required!
Global climate strike, "|September 20-27"! - Somehow, I feel ironic when there is a specific period dedicated to a huge problem. Suddenly there is a hype on all social media platforms with #nature #naturesaviour #xyz #bla #bla, people suddenly start behaving like Avengers in Marvel movies trying to solve everything in a day or two. I hope they start behaving a bit more responsible towards nature on an everyday basis, this includes a part of me too.
Recently, I took part in an initiative named Cauvery Calling driven by an spiritual leader in India and with support of the Indian government.
Cauvery is an Indian river flowing through the states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. It is the fourth largest after Godavari and Mahanadi River in south India and the largest in Tamil Nadu. Cauvery has depleted over 40% in the last 70 years. 87% of the basin’s original tree cover has been lost. During the summer, Cauvery is unable to reach the ocean. 70% of Cauvery basin’s soil suffers erosion. To reverse this dire situation, revitalize Cauvery, rejuvenate the soil, and improve farmers' income, Cauvery Calling will support farmers to plant 242 crore trees. It is estimated that these 242 crore trees will increase water retention in the Cauvery basin by about 40%.
I could only donate 12 trees, but you can do more.
Every step counts :)
