Happy Earth Day, earthlings!
Let’s take a moment to appreciate and thank Mother Earth for the things she gives us – from shelter to food to oxygen to the colourful nature.
Another moment, to apologise for the troubles we have caused her, knowingly or unknowingly – from pollution to wars to deforestation to poaching to littering.
And yet another moment to think of what possible help we could provide her – from planting trees to cleaning our surroundings to using eco friendly materials to being kind to our fellow earthlings to encouraging others to do the same.
And of course it doesn’t stop here! We’ll have to put it all (and much more) into practice as well!
With that said, it’s time for a little celebration!
Here I present a wonderful song on cleanliness written and sang in her enchanting voice by my friend, Prasansha Kumari. She is an avid nature lover herself and often spends her free time on her rooftop – sometimes at sunrise with all the birds or maybe at night with the moon. This song itself was recorded amidst the colourful birds that come to visit her in the morning. Hope you enjoy this melodious piece!
धरती माँ को फिर से सजाये एक समय कुछ ऐसा था प्रकृति हमारी बड़ी खुश थी। अंजान थी वो इस बात से कि एक समय कुछ ऐसा होगा– जब बच्चे उनके भूल जाएँगे उन्हें उन्हें मैला कर फिर ना साफ करेंगे; माँ हमारी नाराज़ होकर फिर यूँ देंगी हमें सज़ा। तो चलो आओ मिलकर हम हाथ मिलाए घर से शुरुआत कर धरती माँ को फिर से सजाये... स्वच्छता ही सपना है सपना ये हमारा है। करना अब इसे पूरा ईरादा ये हमारा है। हरी चादर ओढ़ाकर इसका ज़ेब बढ़ाना है। कूड़ेदान को हर जगह लगाकर कचरा ना अब इधर–उधर फैलाना है । तो चलो आओ मिलकर हम हाथ मिलाए घर से शुरुआत कर धरती माँ को फिर से सजाये...
Let's make Mother Earth clean and green again There was once a time When Mother Earth Was extremely joyous Unaware she was of the fact that There would be a time when her children would forget all about her... They would savage her And won't sanctify again; Our Mother would Be so upset That she would then Punish us all. So come let us all join our hands Let's start from our homes And make Mother Earth clean and green again... Cleanliness is the vision, This dream is ours. To do it now is our only purpose. Covering it with a blanket of greenery, We have to add glory to its beauty. Installing bins In every corner, We have to stop littering refuse. So come let us all join our hands Let's start from our homes And make Mother Earth clean and green again...
Let us pledge to bring back Mother Earth’s glory before we suffer her wrath… it’s never too late to begin 😃
