Look at the night sky. The 2000 odd visible stars. The vastness of the universe that lies beyond spread across billions of light years.

Our earth is but a very tiny small negligible fraction of this vast infinite universe.

Ekam Sath – yet the only truth is that we have only one Earth. If not for this great planet, we will be extinct in no time.

The wonderful atmosphere protecting us along with the magnetic field around it, the Himalayas of Jupiter acting as a strong fort for Earth against most asteroid and comet intruders, the fusion of Sun powering the planet, the water sources running all across the planet like blood lines in our body, the heart of the planet at its hot inner core, this one single planet called Earth is our home. We don’t have anywhere else to go apart from this earth. If Earth asks us to get out, where shall we go?

As a blog reader rightly said, isn’t it our duty to protect and preserve this wonderful planet? Its nature, its life forms, its diversity, its culture?

We did not inherit earth from our ancestors to enjoy, instead we have loaned it from our children. It is our responsibility that we pass it on as it is to the future generations.

On my trip to Scotland, I was fortunate enough to take a snap of this Bagpiper

There are beautiful cultures all across the globe. There are beautiful diverse life forms all across the planet. There are beautiful heritage sites all around the world.

The natural diversity, seas, mountains, rivers, forests, deserts, snow lands, wild animals, birds, insects, fresh air, clean water, pure soil, and remember that our future generations have not yet seen all this and they have all the right to see, live in and enjoy this beautiful planet. We owe the planet to them with all its beauty unharmed.

Hope sense prevails over greed.
