Save trees! Save the planet!

This is an article written as a part of project on increasing commercialization leading to indiscriminate cutting of trees. It emphasizes on the benefits of trees, their uses and importance in maintaining a healthy life balance.


Trees are an important part of society and community. Along with furnishing us with the basic essentials for life like food, oxygen, shelter, medicine, tools, they also satisfy the needs created by our modern ways of living. The value of trees has been increasing ever since more and more benefits are being discovered.

Trees provide us shade and shelter, help in moderating the climate, preserving soil, supporting wildlife, reducing pollution and in many other ways. Trees create an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere around us.  They make our landscape look beautiful..indeed priceless.

However, the population explosion and expansion of commercial areas has resulted in massive pruning of trees. People are continuously cutting trees for developmental activities like making houses, commercial buildings, parking lots and we are moving a step further in destroying the planet by loosing the most valuable resource of the environment.

mf0zqtYHave we ever thought what would happen if there were no trees on Earth?

Global warming will increase leading to melting of glaciers and a rise in sea level. This will disturb the entire chain of life on earth.

The water cycle will get disturbed, many species of animals will loose their habitats and we will in turn loose the huge bio-diversity that we are now proud of.

What would we provide to the generations yet unborn with, if there were no parks, playgrounds and backyards? How will they feel connected to Nature and Mother Earth?

Trees are the lungs through which we breathe. Where would oxygen come  for mankind  to breathe?

Are we sure that we can settle with more buildings, more commercial houses, more paved streets and less of trees?


It is time to re-think the action of cutting down trees for development of a nation. It is difficult or rather impossible to sustain life on Earth without trees and it is not possible to find alternatives to trees. It is also our responsibility to pass on to the future generations, the benefits we were provided with, by nature.

It is time to save the trees. Our small efforts can save the environment. All it needs is a start!

If not Earth then where do we think life will exist?

If we do not take any action today, then when will the appropriate time come?

If not us then who else will work towards their preservation?

Its time to act. Hurry because time is running fast!

Save trees, Save the Planet 🙂

The “DAY” had come..the guests all arrived,

to the smell of flowers and the tunes of music, I happily jived..

She came towards me, ravishing in a flowing white gown,

with all the nervousness and excitement going on inside me, I felt like a clown..

(probably I even did look like one in front of her stunning beauty..lucky me to have her!)


With flowers in her hand and her father by her side,

She walked towards be, to be MY BRIDE.. 🙂 🙂

Oh! how beautiful she looked, I couldn’t take my eyes off her,

n I just couldn’t wait, to spend the rest of my life, with her..

The priest was ready..and so were WE,

To be tied in a knot, that would forever be..

I uttered all my PROMISES, all the feelings that I have always wished to,

and with all the happiness n butterflies in my heart, I said “I DO..” 🙂 🙂

The priest then turned to her, expecting to hear the same,

BUT she stood there SILENT, her head down in shame..

Everyone (including me) gazed at her, with confusion and astonishment in their eyes,

Suddenly it felt I had been living a dream all along, from which I was about to rise..

Tears rolled down her rosy pink cheeks as we looked at each other in the eyes,

While I stood baffled, not having the slightest idea that I was about to be taken by a surprise..!

She waited for a moment, God knows thinking what! before fixing her eyes on me..

With everything she had inside her, she said she COULDN’T MARRY ME..!!!!

A shiver ran down my spine, and I could not believe my own ears,

whispers ran down all across the hall, where there should have been Cheers..!!

I looked at her in the eyes..meaning to ask her “WHY..??”

but she did not utter a word, all she did was CRY..!!

A minute ago I had felt like the happiest man on the Earth..

(for marrying my dream girl..what else a man wants!)

and now, all I could feel was pain and trust me IT HURT..!!!!

With teary poignant eyes, she ran down the aisle..

And in that single moment the ship of our lives drowned, which hadn’t even started to sail..!!


Today was the day I was flying on Cloud 99..or may be even high,

Not knowing that the day I had thought I’d start to live, was the day I was about to die..

I felt every bone in my body crack, felt every single cell die,

Astounded, shaken and shattered, I could not even cry..!!

All the memories flashed before my eyes, the happiness, the laughters, the sorrows, the joy..

n I suddenly felt that my part in her story was over, for her I was a mere toy..!!

But somewhere deep down, my heart STILL believed, that she would turn back to me..

All that had happened would turn out to be a bad dream and she would come running back to me.. 🙂


Soon I realized I was hoping against hope..for a miracle that just wasn’t meant to be..

For in God’s books, it was just “me” and “her”, and never an “us” or “we”.. 😦

With every broken piece of my heart, I still thought about her, about her reasons for leaving me..

and even more than that what I cared for was, thinking that probably “THIS” made her happy..!!

The crowd all dispersed and the guests all returned..

n I was still trying to decipher ways to shake off the weight, with which my heart would be forever burdened..!!

I lost all my faith in LOVE..if it ever was, if anywhere in the world it exists..

From the moment she left me alone..with the BROKEN PROMISE..!!
