Earth Day 2020 - A Stubborn Little Kid Is Awake

It feels like Earth has turned into a little kid who, if does not get what he wants, turns the whole world of his parents upside down and ensures his demands are fulfilled.

Humans are so funny. To show they care about something, they make the whole world know about it and when it becomes well known, they go back to being themselves... careless. They name few days in a year like Earth Day, Independence Day, Birth Day etc to show how much they value and care about these events. But does anybody really care about the planet the way it really needs caring? Are people really independent? Do those who throw big birthday parties really believe they are making a contribution on this planet that makes their existence worth celebrating?

I think Earth has come to know about Humans' agenda... as if their masks are off... so this planet decided to make them wear masks they truly deserved. Not just that, it also said "While you have your masks on, how about I also give you a little time to contemplate about what all you have done?" and then it made humans sit at home while the planet went into its recovery mode.

But the question is, are humans really doing the home work? Well! Some of them are and that's a good news. Even though it's not enough, he sense of realisation that is spreading among people brings back the hope that humans are not that careless. The extent of damage that is done can be seen with the way Earth is reviving itself. The results are right in front of your eyes and they are telling you that the planet doesn't see your colour, race, religion, your political point of view.. it treats everybody the same.  

But on the other side there are few who are least bothered about this pandemic. It tells a lot about human emotions and how they are changing with time. I was told by my friend that every generation on this planet has seen something disastrous on a global level. I told him you can't say something like this as if it is a normal thing. He replied with a shrug, "But, that's a fact". 

Doesn't it raise your eyebrows to see that humans adapt to a common approach or behavior very quickly under adversities but when everything looks hunky-dory, they go out of their way to make it go haywire? Take it as a punishment or an opportunity that has been given to you to review your priorities, because it will probably be a last chance. Believe it or not, Earth will find its way to be safe somehow but the rate at which human emotions are getting destructed, it seems difficult for them to come out alive and still be... human. It is time when everybody should take a stand against all those activities that are harming this planet and the life on it. Keep spreading the awareness until it is recognised at a collective level. Know that everything in this universe reciprocates. So, on this Earth Day, I urge every human to come together and adopt a common goal of "Saving Planet Earth". Needless to say, it will give you beautiful things back in manifolds and if you believe you are worth those things, take some effort everyday to make this magnificent Earth happy again...

Because you are living on the planet.. the only known planet that sustains life.
