“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.
