Last week saw the celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th. Role of women today than ever before is being celebrated and encouraged all the more across society, across geographies, across economies. The world is perceiving the benefits in gender diversity and rightly so.
As Diane Mariechild said “A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform” and she does it all the time. What better example than our ‘Mother Earth’ !
YES, Mother Earth is a common wealth all of us enjoy. It is our prime duty to protect and conserve her and not ravage her – for “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children”. Mind you, borrowings beyond acceptable limits shall sound the death knell for mankind ! It may be fashionable to observe Earth Hour or Earth Day but what is required is ‘sustainable living’ – a way of life and not an ‘hour’ or ‘day’ !
As Michel de Montaigne said “Let us permit nature to have her way. She understands her business better than we do.” ………….and we do our best !
