Dark cloak of the night

Punctured intermittently-

Glow of fireflies

Adventure

Gravitational pull…

Pushed by thrill of adventure

He rides the strong waves.

Swoop

The eagle’s sharp eyes

Monsoon

Onset of monsoon…

Dust, dirt scattered over land

Dragged on and displaced.

A Friend of Trees

On 21st May 2021, India lost a personality who would probably rank as one among many of its great sons. Sundarlal Bahuguna was a visionary who understood the value of a trees and how preventing their mindless felling would go a long way to improve the environment at large.

His unique movement was named “Chipko”, literally meaning “Glued”, in which he inspired ordinary women from the villages of India to hug a tree each, thereby preventing men from cutting down the tree. A true believer in Gandhian principles of non-violence, this was a peaceful way to protest the mindless felling of trees. 

We certainly need more such “friends of trees” in today’s world. 

Mission to save trees-
Simple folks inspired to act
Peaceful protest.

A Moment in Time

Plunging rapid roars

Tempered by the brook below…

Sunrise hues beckons.
