Mother Earth Is Not A Moving Target!

A dialogue in a Netflix series is worth our attention. It was about people getting worried about the environment left for future generations. The lady said something like ‘we plunder the nature and work on preserving it for future generation’.

Actually, this is what is happening. We have green groups trying to preserve what it is now for future generations.

What we need is efforts to restore what we and our previous generations plundered.

I am happy, for example, if the river I grew up can be restored to what it was when we were playing in it.

When we embrace status quo, the future generations also will do that and the visible results are not pretty.

We have initiatives in the right direction. For example, where I live, all wildlife are protected. The population of animals like tigers and wild boars are increasing steadily.

But we have tiger attacks on humans and wild boars destroying cultivation.

Perhaps we are losing sight of what is called the level playing field. The farmers right to protect the produce is to be there. Is ‘survival of the fittest’ the norm then! The farmer shouldn’t be forced to look the other way when his plants are levelled to the ground.

It’s the other way round for the defenceless like the rivers, trees etc.

I read somewhere that a businessman helped restore 60 rivers. We need similar activities around clean water, tree planting drives and other restorations, while giving an equal opportunity for those living, like humans and animals and those assisting the living like clean water and trees.

The land is cleared, but it’s not to be left like that. Our intention ought to be to see that we plant trees wherever possible. Well, I don’t have to talk about the importance of more and more trees on earth’s surface.

It’s not always easy, some people can do it as passion, some for profit and is there another way! Perhaps yes, there could be a fun element brought in to the process.

And if it’s possible, why not go for it! One thing is clear, you can’t bring in the fun element alone. You need friends, partners and some accompaniments to do that.

So, this is barren land, and suppose sufficient water is available. Then let’s see how we can fill the place with trees and make it look like the desired planet earth.

Suppose there are organisations promoting tree plantations. Well, go for support.

The location is not just outside any house. Then supervision and maintenance are to be managed. Perhaps this can be done by a group of interested people.

Are there people who are tree lovers and would get involved as passive partners. Here again, there could be many of them.

Then, if we have a number of people interested, why not some fellowship element. Yes, why not. Let there be get togethers and picnic. Daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually or best, when convenient.

And suppose there are a few visitors accommodations in the vicinity! Well then even an overnight party is a possibility.

What goes with green! Perhaps wellness. How about some wellness programs added on!

The trees can be fruit bearing! There’s harvesting festivals as possibility. And of course the products fetch a price and are we looking at profit also?

Sounds like a fun plan. A feasible dream.
