Introspection -life or plastic ?

We , humans, are creatures of convenience and in that process often get ourselves into unmanageable situations .
How slowly the menace of plastic came into our lives and is now a threat to our very existance. A small example :
I remember as a child we use to take our own bowls to buy milk or yogurt/curd
Then
Came the bowls made of leaves for yogurt
Then
The white plastic bags
Now
The packed containers with plastic lids and plastic bottles
Everyone welcomed the replacements and happy to be saving time (by not waiting in queues)
Relevant to mention here that those milk shops used to be the first meeting point most morning, from exchanging the plesantries to politics to cricket to sharing few laughs and jokes. Fresh morning Air and a morning in the bargin
Today the question is :” Is the damage repairable?
A few suggestions
– we can try to go back making curd at home like our mothers/grandmothers
– using of clay bowls by the mass manufacturer. ( experimental and possible if will is there?
– avoid small packs

The plastic not just around us but inside us, now is the time to INTROSPECT and ACT

EARTH DAY-Wakeup Call

M

    

                                                                   Green Earth for everybeings  survival 

       

Hope sooner than later  we  wake up , 

Shake up ourself to face the reality,

Why are we are destroying the Mother Earth first,

Then bringing the Earth Day to save it afterwards,

The duality of our personalities are seen so clear,

On one hand we are destroying the nature in our greed 

Then try to justify our mindless  actions in the name of development


This is only a transit, not permanent home for anyone,

We are here only  till our breath and our heart beat,

Why are we destroying the elements we are made up of, 

TODAY…. 

Why can ‘nt we breathe  without thought of toxins in the air? 

Why can’ nt we drink the natural water without fear? 

Why can’t we freely enjoy the fruits direct from the trees? 

There are so many WHYS and not one good  reason to satisfy. 

Progress and development may be the need of the day,

But for this is’ nt pollution a big price to pay,

There are more suffering than happiness today,

And more binding than liberation ,

Only way is act with Awareness in whatever we do, 

It may make this world better place to stay.

                             Rivers our life lines


Is’nt it  a blessing that Sun and Moon are out of our reach,

For us to pollute in the name of progress and modernization,

Otherwise Sun Day and Moon Day would’nt  have been far away,

If we may stop  this quest to create a better world for future,

 Perhaps Mother Earth will see our future generations

Living not in fear but  in harmony with the nature,

Without  days to remind  what Earth,Water,Air means for existance.
