Saving Mother Earth #WordlessWednesday

“Orbiting Earth in the spaceship, I saw how beautiful our planet is. People, let us preserve and increase this beauty, not destroy it!” – Yuri Gagarin

During the Diwali break, Miss A was busy with her holiday homework apart from the festivities. For her the most important assignment – as she calls it was ‘Saving Mother Earth’.

She spoke about the 3R’s (reuse, reduce, recycle) with almost everyone she met. Diwali was also a great time for her to spread the word as she enjoys a cracker free Diwali. So the agenda on her list was a Green and eco-friendly Diwali, talking about the 3R’s, saving water and electricity. She even became the self-proclaimed electricity monitor at home. She also made sure that whenever we went out shopping we carried our own bag rather than carrying back a plastic bag.

Here is how she made her assignment: We cut out a big circle from a cardboard. Then we drew the outline of the land and water. She coloured them accordingly. Then we drew pictures of what she wanted to tell people about.

Let’s join hands with children to make this planet a better place for them. We have seen the best of this planet, let them also see the same and not believe that it is dark and smoky. Instead, it is green calm and serene.

Well, about me I can say that I am a certified dentist, healthcare analyst, medical writer and above all a mother of a 6-year-old. Most of my day to day activities revolve around her and she is my inspiration to start this blog. As a mother, I experimented with a lot of new things for my little one in a quest to find the best for her. I just want to share my experiences of being a happy and content mum.

    Miss A is such a smart and sensitive little child. And her project is so cute. Wish more and more children are as sensitive as her.
    Even we celebrated a green Diwali and try and follow the penalty jar rule for any electricity deviations. Thanks to my little A.

    Thank you Shubhra for linking up with us on #WordlessWednesday. Enjoyed your post.

    What a great message! And how fascinating that kids may care more for the Earth than some adults. We need to take actions no matter how small they are. As it says : “If you want to see a change, be the change.

    What a lovely and meaningful project! There is so much we can do to save our earth. If kids can understand that and take the necessary steps toward achieving the goal, then we adults should, by all means, follow their lead. 🙂

    Yuri Gagarin said that back in the 1950s! Wow!
    We have definitely come a long way, then, in abusing our planet rather than preserving it. Kudos to your daughter for being thoughtful about saving the Earth and taking steps in the same direction. I really liked the way the assignment was done and the creativity involved in it.

    Thanks, Anamika. This quote by Yuri Gagarin was especially quoted since my daughter is very interested in astronauts. And yes we have definitely abused our planet a lot.
