Are you a Nature Lover? Yes, No, Thinking ?
You need to think, as we think there are 3 levels of Nature Lovers. .
First level, you just like being close to nature, to see the flora and fauna.
Second level, when you want to photograph nature for posterity and share the
same with your children or grand children.
Third level, you wish to do something about nature, to try and save the same
from the daily plundering it receives.
All the above levels are integrated; it starts at level 1 at a certain age,
and reaches level three at a certain age. Most of us with good values inculcated
thru our upbringing can relate with the three levels. You cannot reach level
three of trying to save nature until you love nature, which is level 1 &
2. Society is made up of individuals, hence societal thinking is shaped up by
collective individual thinking. So what are we doing to shape up the thinking
of the society?
We talk about conservation in schools and colleges, I wouldnt say it is
a total waste of time, but it is 99% waste of time. If you take a five year
old and tell him the tigers are disappearing from the planet, there isn't much
he can do to change the situation. Chances are he'll think tigers are cute,
but he'll feel pretty helpless about saving the species. As time goes on, whenever
presented with an image or thought of a tiger, he may begin to feel a vague
sense of sadness or frustration about the situation.
Practical solutions, arise from individual actions, we might think what me alone
can do. Well, what you can do first is to take individual responsibility, and
say to yourself that you can do it. Then, do something about it. All big achievements
were made possible with first small beginning. There was a famous song I heard
often on radio when I was a child Tum Besahara Ho To, Kisika Sahara Bano,
Tumko Apne Aap hi sahara mil jayega (If you do not have support from anyone,
then you be a support to someone, the you will find support for yourself). This
song not only lifts me when I am down, but I find it very practical.
If you have still not fallen in Love with nature, come to us, and we shall assist
