UNDULATING BEAUTY OF PRISTINE NATURE
 
 
Wake up at the break of dawn and see the mesmerizing sunrise…Breathe deep as you take a stroll in a park and feel the fresh fragrant air fill your lungs…Discover vibrant colours as you walk through the flowers…Dip your feet into peaceful lakes, rushing rivers and estuaries teeming with wildlife…Feel the rush of snow beneath your skis or let a gentle breeze fill your sails on sparkling waters…Gaze at the high peaks and the deep seas and feel the Earth…

Yes these are the pleasures that Natural beauty gives us. 

Nature has brought a lot of aesthetic charm into the lives of all living beings as it commands endless power on the sun, clouds, rain and snow. It can set a sky aflame at sunset or cast a magic spell and transform a green landscape into a snow white wonderland. It can design a vibrant rainbow in the sky or paint beautiful autumn colours on trees. It can make the buds blossom and announce the arrival of spring. Nature surely is an intrinsic part of our lives.

No, it is not only a source of abundant beauty that appeals to the senses but also a great motivational and inspirational source which rejuvenates us when we are feeling low. It is such a wonderful & splendid reinforcer that God has blessed the mankind with.

But are the humans not an ignorant lot of people? 

Do they ever take into account that the influence they have had over Nature is disastrous. Deforestation is expanding; glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising ….. Time is slipping out of our hands.

At times when I ponder over this, I feel that in the coming years the impact of Global Warming will start having far reaching consequences. Why does Man not understand that he will be held guilty for not paying heed to the situation at the right time? The human race needs to understand that the threat from climate change is serious, it is urgent and it is ever growing. The response of the present generation to this challenge will be judged by history, for if we fail to meet it- boldly, swiftly and together – then we risk consigning future generations to an irreversible catastrophe.

Let’s start from the grass root level. We cannot afford to forget that we have to pass on the bounteous nature to our progeny. Remember Nature is depending on us. Let’s have a mutual consensus that we will learn to become more aware of our surrounding. Nature requires that humans change lifestyles to accommodate and enjoy its beauty . Don’t throw your bottles out the window of the car, pick up that piece of paper, unplug a charger when not required, nature’s beauty depends on us to keep it beautiful.

Please do your part and the generations, which follow will enjoy the beauty of nature just as we do. Let’s allow the beauty in nature to have a miraculous impact on the lives of mankind for innumerable years to come. Let’s not selfishly create a ruckus around. Nature is indeed spectacular and it is our responsibility to keep it beautiful.

Let’s be thankful to Lord for surrounding us with the bountiful nature.
