World Environment Day

Today is world environment day. Happy, it depends. Happy to stay hopeful, yes. Happy about what we have been able to achieve towards environment, no.

Our environment has issues, and all of them originate through us.

These are Global issues, yes. But do these need global solutions, not necessarily.

Today, Lets take out time, to see how in our capacity are we burdening environment. What is our carbon Footprint? What is our water footprint?

Lets read articles to find what these terminologies are, and where we fit in within the global average.

And when we are thorough assessing ourselves, we lookout for Handprints. What are handprints? How can we contribute? on what scale?

Lets not be spending today signing pledges online, or chatting with friends about catastrophes laying ahead. or venting out the ‘what-may-would-happen’ syndrome among peers.

Lets be realistic.

Lets google, lets find, lets learn and lets share.

Action comes never before acknowledgement. Lets acknowledge today, and make ourselves able to act.

The original purpose of this blog was promoting city cycling and popularizing urban green belt corridors, which it did for it's first one and a half year, since the year of it's launch - 2014. Now-a-days, that is, since the last two years, I haven't been city commuting on my bike, thanks to my city earning the world's most air polluted region title. And thanks to the redesigning of City roads, those are forked under construction since last six months, loosing a green cover of a whooping 9,100+ trees and the rising construction dust hazards. And lastly thanks to El nino of 2015 and El nina of 2016. I don't know if I have missed any other reason. The theme of the blog, hence, changed, into a bit of my own ramblings covering topics, such as - my travel blogging, Social issues in India, Climate change & biodiversity conservation.
