My favourite way of spending a Sunday evening ✨

My favourite way of spending a Sunday evening would always be this. 

Sitting out in a quiet corner, enjoying the evening breeze, watching the birds chirp and the squirrels run around, and finding bliss in the sunset. The mind is purely in the play mode, no rewind, no fast forward, and I’m compelled to breathe in the beauty of each moment. 

The anxiety about the future forgotten, I’m just finding solace in the present. 

Trust nature to help us ease out and rediscover ourselves amidst all the chaos, atleast for a little while every now and then.

The Green Revolution 

I’ve written this as a Climate Counsellor on behalf of the ICCE.

People across the world are struggling with the everyday realities of climate change. The poor in developing countries are hit hardest and face difficult challenges: How to deal with higher temperatures, changes in rain patterns, rising sea levels, and more frequent weather-related disasters? How to adapt to climate change? How to mitigate the risks for agriculture, food, and water supplies? In addition, cities are growing and in 20 years, almost 5 billion people will live in cities that will emit about three-quarters of the world’s greenhouse gases. At stake are recent gains in the fight against poverty, hunger and disease, and the lives and livelihood of billions of people in developing countries. Low carbon economic development that is climate-friendly and climate-resilient will require huge leaps forward in innovation, knowledge sharing, and capacity building.
Green (R)evolution – Action against Climate Change is an initiative by International Centre for Culture & Education (ICCE). This initiative is about spreading knowledge on the effects of Climate Change and the actions we can take within our own capacity. It is done through various activities such as certification programs, campaigns & workshops for General Public, Students and Corporates.

Under the leadership of the Secretary-General, United Nations- governments have advanced international efforts to fight, mitigate and adapt to climate change.
At the Climate Conference (COP) in Cancun in 2010, governments adopted the Cancun agreements,forming the basis for the largest-ever collective effort to reduce carbon emissions and address the long-term challenges of climatey change. Green (R)evolution is an Initiative to Educate, Inspire and Act on Mitigation & Adaptation methods of Climate Change

Save The Earth!

Forever is a time too less,

Yet the future already seems bleak and a complete mess,

If we want the world to save it’s beauty and sheen,

It’s time we protect Mother Nature and Go Green!

 

I’d like to explain a little about today’s picture and the Quatrain.
Often, when we say Go Green, or World Environment Day, or Save the Earth, our immediate attention goes towards saving the greenery above the ground, which is absolutely right. But, most of the time, we tend to forget the absolutely gorgeous world underwater, below the oceans and seas, and completely ignore their importance. Little do we realise that all the harm we do, also affect them. They also get polluted and lose their charm and lives. Their balance gets disturbed, and the livelihood of the plants, the animals and the other living beings underwater gets disrupted.
It’s time we realise, the world underwater, is equally important to our existence, if not more, so it is necessary we preserve and take good care of them, if we do not want OUR livelihood to go haywire.

Thank you Parvatha Varthini for the Chromatic Corner experience, in Class XII. It was absolutely wonderful to participate with you. You are always such a delight to work with! Those memories stay fresh in my mind, and helped me write this post 😀

 

Thank you, Sabarritha. If you hadn’t asked, I wouldn’t have written this.😉

 

 

P.S. This is part of my Pen The Picture project 🙂 Hope you like reading what I write 🙂
