issues that otherwise won't matter to the others

World Environment Day

“Save the world”. Yesterday was the day most of the population suddenly gets the feel of saving the mother earth. With lots of media flare, a few ministers somewhere would plant some hundreds or maybe thousands of plants proudly displaying what a good deed they had done on this one day while the remaining three sixty four days they probably would not give a damn about it. Do these plants actually turn out to be real large trees? Has anybody counted on this? I guess not. Who would care?

Newspapers and news channels would only show snaps of the people who “pose to show” about their mission to save the world only on the 5th of June. In its World Environment Day concern, a top FM radio channel I was listening to was giving off plants in a tub to those who can claim that they are plant killers (Those who try to grow plants in the tub but due to many reasons the plant eventually dies). I thought “what an idea”! Give a plant to those who can’t ensure that the plant remains healthy so that this give away plant in a tub would also meet the same fate. A sad death. Poor plant!

The US president also raised voice showing concerns. Being one of the most developed and advanced countries in the world, have those top politicians ever wondered what was happening to the environment when they were going fast along the ladder of progress. No, he is making noise all over and wants all other under developed and developing countries to listen to him and act as what he says for the sake of saving the environment. In a way he is right. What the American nation couldn’t control during their developing stage, they want that to be controlled by the present second and third world countries. And look at India’s reply on his call. Our country is showing that emission levels here are far lower; also going to the state of saying that we can’t compromise development for the sake of protecting the environment. What a shame.
