It’s when the days get maddening hot; we feel the pinch of not having enough trees around us. We feel the twinge of not having enough water bodies around us. But can we actually do anything, in our human capacity to help sustain, preserve and create these natural resources?
The most interesting thing is that we all have a very resolute feeling about these environment issues but how many of us actually go out and do something really meaningful that would not only make a difference but also make a real impact to conserve these depleting resources around us and bring about a metamorphosis in our environmental policy and approach. This week we have witnessed a massive wave of people standing up to protect Bharatvan, the only remaining verdant treasure trove of Nagpur.
The solidarity shown by the residents of Nagpur was nothing short of a miracle and they all deserve a big applause for this effort. Nagpur is undeniably hot but it is also blessed with some beautiful natural reserves that should be conserved and protected at any cost.
Be it the Van Udyan, which is an ideal place to jog and trek or the cute little parks like Maharaj Bagh Zoo, Dagdi Park, Railway Park, Telankhedi Garden, Dhantoli Park, Futala Lake, or Khindsi Lake, these natural wonders need protection, care and respect.
And now that the summer break is in full swing, mommies around the city would be at brink and already devising some constructive ways to plan the days’ schedule for their hyper active kids.
With Sun at its peak and refusing to cool down any time soon, all we’re left with in the day are the evenings. And taking your kids to visit these local wonders is the best way to spend time with them, talk to them and teach them the value of planting trees, taking care of them, and keeping the water bodies clean for a better, brighter and happier future.
