Hi friends, people all over the world who are concerned about the deteriorating condition of our Earth celebrate Earth day with heavy heart and use this occasion as an opportunity to spread awareness in different ways. The first ever Earth day was celebrated way back on 22nd April 1970 in USA and now in as many as 175 countries it is celebrated. I feel we have exploited the environment to maximum extent and not spared any component of our biosphere. Then what we are celebrating on 22nd of April every year? Are we celebrating our achievement in environment protection which is very negligible compared to its day to day exploitation? Is there any improvement in the health of environment from previous years Earth day to next years one? Some scientists warn us about the immediate environment disasters and we are feeling the heat slowly. If all the predictions about large scale environment disasters come true, then we may hardly celebrate next year’s Earth day. But I am an optimistic person and believe that Mother Nature will give us another chance to correct our self. I whole heartedly appreciate the efforts of millions of people who make effort to keep our earth in a healthy condition throughout the year and celebrate Earth day as a stock taking activity.
