A little girl wrote a letter to the Sun.
It is very hot on Earth. Could you please reduce the heat here?
To this the Sun replied
I have been giving out the same heat for a long time. Please make sure you do not cut trees on Earth. Plant more trees if you want shade and want to be cool. I am helpless my dear friend.
It is summer here in Hyderabad. Each summer we get to read the news that we have reached the maximum temperature not recorded in the history of this place in many years. This is the same story each year. Today morning I read in the newspaper that some 3100 trees will be cut to make way for a road in the heart of the city. We hardly have any greenery inside the city and the only one that was existing will now be reduced to dust. It feels disgusting to read such articles in newspapers. If this keeps going on we shall in near future see trees and plant in museums. Why don’t we learn from the mistakes we do? Why do we repeat the same mistakes that we had committed earlier? When will there be learning about the environment? Already many countries have realized the importance of saving the environment. Many have started to use the available renewable energy. We too have to start looking at this perspective.
Whenever it is summer we are constantly feared that we may not get water. Each year we read news about the level of the ground water reduced. Nothing much is being done to save water. Rivers are drying, lakes are dying. Imagine the plight of animals living out in this scorching sun. I sometimes wonder why people are so selfish. They are always thinking about themselves and not others. It is everybody’s duty to save the environment so that little girls and boys of today will have a good future to live on this earth.
