“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”

― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

The most treasured possession that all beings are gifted with despite their species, creed, caste or race is the Earth they are born on, their home. It is this mother earth who bears us, nurtures us, feeds us and gives us everything with no expectation of anything in return. Sadly today, it is this mother earth that we tend to destroy by means of ignorance and negligence. With the global world running at a hectic speed towards globalism, technological advancement and scientific reawakening most of us tend to forget the basic duty entrusted to every being born on earth. That is our duty towards the Mother Nature who despite our negligence and ignorance tends to give us her best.
