Who is the God ?

‘Religare’ , a word from Latin means “To Bind”, which evolved to ‘Religio’ to mean something which is a bond and something which someone Oblige to do. Thus evolved the word Religion. Religion further evolved to Ideas. Ideas of some people which convinced others and people decided to take those set of Ideas, Stories and Facts as a common ground for standing together and celebrating!
Different people, different Ideas, different goals, different religions! All Standing tall in their own beauty!

But its not just Ideas which bind us together. A common fact binds us all since the very begining. Not only humans, but even beings who don't communicate with us. The Friendly ones and also the beasts. That Eternal fact which we celebrate daily knowingly or unknowingly! The Fact that we are on the Planet which supports us for Life, and an environment which allows us to be alive to the fullest of human capabilities. That's something to be thankful of! That's the religion we celebrate even by just waking up to life and by evolving generation by generation, race by race. That's a religion we are passively part of.

The gods of this Religion are forces which we interact with and which make us alive. They support our life. Oxygen to breathe, Land to be sure that it will keep us supported, Water to keep us hydrated, air to make sure that we when we speak, our voice reaches to our loved ones! They have been our Gods for so long that we have been unconscious and unappreciative towards their role in our development and existance.

This unappreciative nature of us humans have really compromised our celebrations towards the nature. The trouble in breathing, the sliding of lands, the poisonous water and the diseases in air are now news of our daily life and not unheard of. On the name of progress and higher goals, we ignore the harm done to the environment and choose to be blind towards the environment.

We do it on our daily basis. From spitting on the streets to throwing a wrapper on the bench, we all contribute very minorly to this harm which multiplied by each individuals of earth makes it a huge mess for the whole Eco system to process. The supporter of our lives is now no more able to support us, making survival more and more difficult for the coming generations. Just by being a mere spectator to this change makes us equal criminals. Our homes are spic and span with no piece of dust on top of our expensive gadgets, but we forget to search for the garbage bin when we come outside of the house, not realizing that the asset of the Clean and Green Earth is Priceless and the consequences are much more expensive for the whole planet.

The Planet can be saved, the religion of environment can be protected. All we need is a Start. A Start from our mentality. The realization that solutions exist to the waste problem and we can solve it by just being creative is a good First step. Small steps like kitchen gardening , waste segregation, conserving water, planting trees and so on take us a long way. Understanding that the waste to someone can be a treasure to another being of the ecosystem can reduce the problem of Solid Waste to a great level.

Above all, the understanding that one is Important and make up the entity of the Eco System is the most important belief needed in the present day scenario. The want to change and save nature will find its way in making a better environment and shall make the day after tomorrow worth living

Plantation Drive at Aarey Colony !!!

Land of plantation
Trees are one of the main components of environment which help in balancing the ecosystem as a whole. Unwanted cutting of trees and deforestation are harming our climate and ecosystem to a large extent. The effect can clearly been seen by gradual increase in the global temperature and thus this is a global concern. Thus, plantation of trees is a crying need of the time.
To mitigate the effects of deforestation Green Health Foundation conducted a tree plantation drive in association with NAATA Foundation in the Village zone of Aarey Colony, Mumbai on 11th July, 2015, with help of volunteers from Sandesh College, Vikhroli and Royal College, Mira Road
One day prior to the plantation activity, GHF along with volunteers carried out digging of holes for plants. On 11th July 2015, plantation mainly fruiting plants was carried out so as to provide the villagers with employment and also an added incentive to care for plants. Also the plants would increase the green cover of the city. Along with the fruiting plants some non-fruiting plants too were planted. A total of 70 plants were planted on the day.
After the completion of the plantation drive the members of NAATA Foundation and Rotary Club of Bombay, Film City were given a token of appreciation in the form of Thank you letter for being present in the plantation drive and improving the tree cover of the city and supporting GHF. As a token of appreciation they were also provided with a Tulsi sapling. The volunteers were provided with certificates for participating in the plantation Drive.
Numerous plantation drives take place along the year but due to lack of understanding of the importance of green cover, many of the planted friends die. Hence GHF planted fruit plants so as to balance the environmental damage as well as provide fruits to villagers which would be the incentive for them to care.
GHF will be making frequent visits to the place to keep a check on plant health and will try its best to sustain the green cover spread by us. We look forward to create a more greener and sustainable appearance to the planet. We wish to ReGreen everything!!!
