Reena’s Exploration Challenge #65

PROMPT FOR THIS WEEK

Challenge 65

Too much of consumerism

disrupted

the balance of nature

Kings, Maharajas,

politicians, businessmen, rich

were busy in money making

as money brings POWER

public, either terrified to raise a voice

or whining for their sorrows, or

oblivious to nature’s balance

accepting all as their destiny, gods fury

Some had a clear vision

the first on to start a movement to save sacred trees

along

with Bishnoi Villagers

dared to raise a voice and saved the trees

it took 363 lives to awaken the people from their slumbers

then came CHIPKO MOVEMENT

led by

Sundarlal Bahuguna, who explained to villagers

of the importance of trees to the environment

of the soil erosion due to the cutting of trees

of draught

of pollution, pure air

very slowly people were awakening

whole India was stirred by

Save Silent Velly Movement

Jungle Bachao Andolan

Appiko Movement

Narmada Bachao Andolan

etc. etc.

All visionaries are  doing their bit

but,

what the rest in the world is doing

waiting for the third world war for water

or, consuming to turn this planet a desert?

God knows

when the whole world sings in unison

enough is enough

Let us all save the Mother Earth

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.
