Are we doing enough for our future generations?

At least now I accept that we humans are greedy beings. The fact that investing in the environment is not going to give any personal return is the reason most of us are reluctant towards this. If we plant a tree, the oxygen it would produce for us will not be debited into our personal accounts so that we can use it whenever we need. This is the most unfortunate thing with our environment as far as I believe because had this not been the case, all of us would have invested in the environment by now. I had got to know from trustworthy readings that one tree is equal to twenty Air conditioners when it comes to soothing us in summers. However, buying an AC is a personal investment we make. We get it installed for personal use and consume the benefits.

We are some 1.25 lakh crore people. If mere 0.01% of us plant a tree on a day, there will be a clean safe environment for all of us. I believe this is the only solution. I have noticed few concerned people investing in indoor plants and I really appreciate this. Because buying a mask is not going to help you from this hazardous air all around; certainly not to any level to which just one plant can.'

It is a time when global corporations are investing in sustainability. Brands producing leather goods and chemical bound manufacturing processes are also doing their part as much as they can by ensuring minimum carbon emission, maximum use of organic colours and substances and environment-friendly manufacturing processes. Then why we here in India are lagging behind. Is this not a kind of our backwardness? Is it because we are still pondering on issues like poverty, education and gender equality that we have been doing since independence?   

This air quality is hardly improving around us. Almost all of us are worried to the bit we should be. Most concerned eyes are looking around for safety measures. Though world environment day is not approaching us, all of us are interested in talks about nature. Obviously, because it is the eleventh hour now. Though talking about it is the first step towards being concerned, it is too little for the need of this hour. At least all of us should act responsibly towards environment today itself by responding to one or more or the following measures:
Apart from these, trash the thoughts like what you alone can do or how much a single hand can help in saving the entire globe; it’s really worth a lot. Talk about how good you are responding to the needs of the environment with others as much as you can; take this as a matter of pride and philanthropy. Let us at least now become responsible towards the environment. Or else the coming generations would certainly blame us.

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.
