RAINY DAYS!

Image result for pictures for rainy season"

Prompted by the weekly prompt of Blogging Meet here is prompted poem:
RAINY DAYS have made grand arrival! Yes the great gift of Nature alias God!
PAINY DAYS are these to many-going to schools and offices and outside home
With umbrellas failing to protect from rains heavy, Rain coat
Out of its place from the cupboard helps walking or driving two wheelers!
Getting cold and fever as a result of getting drenched in rain-a pain!
Even after the RAIN stops, drizzles continue through TREE LEAVES and branches!
RAIN essential for the world as the Saint Poet of Tamilnadu says in his Magnum Opus THIRUKKURAL written years two thousand and three hundred ago!:
Chapter Two
GLORY OF RAIN
11.
On rain, rests the world
Sure for its prosperity
Treat rain –nectar bold! (11)

12.
It helps grow great food
Sans water no agriculture
Quenches thirsty world! (12)

13.
Water all in sea
Helps not life on earth so well
Rain water gives glee! (13)

14.
Rain sustains the world
Makes the fertile land yield more
Sans farmers can’t mould! (14)
15.
By absence, rain destroys
Life, living, people and the world
By care it creates! (15)
16.
If rain fails to grace
The earth with its compassion
No grass you can trace! (16)
17.
Ocean becomes dry
When the sky bears not the clouds
People made to cry! (17)
18.
Rain – gift of nature
Whenever denied to the world
Bleak – nobles’ future! (18)
19.
When powerful rain fails
Noble charity gets failed
Nobles’ penance falls! (19)
20.
Sans water no life
When the Lord of Rain conspires
Virtue faces knife! (20)

ENVIRONMENT -CLEAN AND CLEAR? Part III

Over population-urban sprawl!

‘Environment, ‘Environmental protection”, “Environmental issues”
Very commonly discussed today all over-in fact very important
Yet day after day clean and clear environment remains a far cry
And that is a great threat to the welfare of all living beings very sure.

Not that the society is unaware of the issues involved-but unable
To tackle at individual level. Cooperation of all concerned
An absolute must-impossible to get and hence all talk only in air!
Ten issues identified:Pollution, Climate Change, Global Warming,
Deforestation, Overpopulation, Industrial and household wastes,
Acid rain, Ozone Layer Depletion, Genetic Engineering,Urban sprawl !

Pollution all kinds of pollutions by the individual as well
As industries-a pity but none can help to reduce and minimize.
At least if awareness is raised society may think of helping
If not today afuture sans much of pollution may be at sight!

ENVIRONMENT -CLEAN AND CLEAR? Part II

Image result for Environmental Protection-issues involved

Environmental issues  harmful effects of human activity
On the biophysical environment. Environmental protection
A practice of protecting the natural environment at all levels
Individual, organizational or governmental levels!

They are for the benefit of both the environment and humans.
Environmentalism, a social and environmental movement,
Address environmental issues through advocacy, education and activism.
Carbon dioxide equivalent of greenhouse gases  in the atmosphere
Already exceeded all levels. The amount of greenhouse gas in the
Atmosphere is  above the threshold  can potentially cause climate change.
“Climate change is not just a distant future threat.
All efforts are needed to prevent this disaster.

It is the main driver behind rising humanitarian needs .
Damages inflicted by extreme weather intolerable.
Environment destruction caused by humans is a global problem,
Human effects on Earth can be seen in  temperature rise.

Image result for international earth day 2019

March Twentieth today is International Earth Day
The day’s purpose and objective quite noble and great-hey
WE listen to Mother Earth’s pleadings to keep it quite safe
Since we are indiscriminate in taking care of Mother!

We love this MOTHER EARTH for reasons several not far to seek
The Day is observed to remember that the great Mother Earth sleek
Its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance.- God’s grace
We have to promote harmony with nature-its beauty with grace!

To ensure the Earth to achieve a just balance among all needs
The economic, social and environmental- with our deeds
For the present and future generations of humanity.
Lest we are bound to lose the grace of Mother Earth for eternity!
