All Of Us Know This, But Shall We Follow?

As responsible citizens of this planet, we have some duties towards her - towards our future generations. We all already know about them, I'm sure.

  • Save Water: Adopt rain water harvesting.
  • Save Fuel: Use CNG, LPG or bio-fuels. Use public transport, car-pooling, do walk or cycling for short distances.
  • Save Electricity: Turn off any light, fan or any electric instrument when not in use.
  • Reduce Air Pollution,
  • Water Pollution and
  • Reduce Noise Pollution.
  • Say NO to Plastic: Use paper/jute bags for shopping.
  • Do Tree Plantation and Stop Cutting Trees.
  • Take Care of Your Health: Do regular medical check-up, have diet control and do exercise.
Well, if you have read this much, I am sure you have many more to be added to this list. Please, do that.

Make this a poster and put where one can read/see daily more than once. There are chances one may be motivated to follow some, if not all.

We have to leave this earth least polluted, so our next generation do not curse us for our negligence.

Before trying to fight so many external issues like corruption, black money, political problems and so on, above mentioned issues are within our reach and control. We, ourselves, are at fault. Let us improve that first.

If this story makes any sense, one has to act... or global warming, earth-quake, flood and tsunami are ready to kill us before time.

Are we that dull to understand this or we are intelligent enough to ignore any signal?

    1. Seema, thanks for comment.

      Even readiness of one person to follow is a great success of the article.
      I know reading or talking is easier than following.

      Best luck.

  3. Dear Pappa,

    That's a good 'revision' article to remind everyone about her/his social responsibilities. As you've quoted, we all actually know this - it's no rocket science. Still, unfortunately, most of fail to stick to it.

    From the points you have jotted, I specifically liked the saving fuel and car-pooling part more. Unfortunately, car-pooling isn't effectively adopted in most cities in India. If you happen to be present at any traffic signal at 5:30 PM in Electronic City in Bangalore (or Hinjewadi IT Park in Pune), you’d see thousands (and not just hundreds) of cars piled up one after the other – each crawling at 10 kmph or slower. Worst part being, only one person per car! The traffic would be reduced by good 50% plus if such people living in the same locality or working in the same company-same timing decide to car-pool.

    Another equally interesting and important point is to avoid using vehicles for shorter distance. We not only contribute to our duty as humans this way, we also add little something to our health and fitness. This is one thing I’m consciously trying to get into after reading your article.

    Another simple, but good practice I’ve started is taking up stairs in most cases. I’ve started not using lifts (elevators) for at least up to 3-4 floors.

      I am tempted to share what I liked the most...ARE WE THAT DULL TO UNDERSTAND THIS ..OR...WE ARE INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO IGNORE ANY SIGNAL?
      In fact this question is worth asking any-time..we get some signal.
