Green Crusader Mentioned - thank you - The Earth Sign

>> Friday, 5 March 2010

I was supposed to publish this post a long time back, a system crash and ill health delayed it by a few weeks. Better late than never..right!!

I am elated to have been mentioned by a fellow blogger - Poornima who blogs at "The Earth Sign". It is a honour to be acknowledged in the blogger world for posting off beat and not so interesting set of topics.

Why I say this...
In my experience as a blogger, I find it really difficult to get people interested in Green topics. It is sad that many allied topics get prominence over very important ones.

Facts...
There are few blogs and e-magazines which publish posts and articles on home design, cooking, technology, children and green /environment...I hardly see comments for the posts under the green or the environment section (excepting a few)..but a load of them for the other segments. I do know that discussing and posting in forums do not move mountains but what hurts is the masses' lack of interest in such issues

Going green is not a fad or a fashion for few. It is a non existing or uninteresting topic for the rest of the population. I find only a few who are working towards tackling issues related to our planet, the least one could do is start by making small lifestyle changes and grow to being more eco-friendly. However, I do not see it happen in most cases.

People still ask for plastic grocery bags as if they were their life lines and as though life couldn't exist with out these flimsy bags. More so, there are a few others who ask for extra bags without giving a second thought to their action and its impact.

Surviving among all these people and their carelessness, I still like to believe that everyone is doing their bit, and maybe are not vocal with their thoughts...this keeps my spirits up and striving towards pooling more number of people into the crusade to save our lives.

Thank you  - from the bottom of my heart

I would like to thank Poornima for mentioning A Green Crusader at Work and all the encouraging words she has said in her post (with a special mention about my green balcony!)...I am elated and very honoured :)...





I loved the fact that she is trying to do her bit and wants to make a difference. We need more such youngsters to be a part of this race against time in protecting our planet from further damage.

Its a harsh truth that green does not invoke the same emotion as other topics. But do keep writing, as there are quiet a few who are interested... And let us take your words around the world..

Thanks Sudha! It was my pleasure and in many ways a duty to mention your good work. In fact if there is anything more that you think I can do to help in your crusade, I will be happy to pitch in.

Will keep following you!

Hey Sudha,

I read your blogs with a lot of interest and am quite surprised at the perseverance with which you carry on this task undaunted. When we experience something within to bring about a change, it takes a lot of will to carry that out in the face of obstacles. I am quite impressed by your work. I remember the time I was deeply influenced by cruelty towards animals while doing my graduation and made a conscious effort to change my lifestyle...by using cruelty free products, not eating / using products that contained animal ingredients in any form. Stopped using silk, leather and every other form of animal produce. It was a major lifestyle change but more than 14 yrs now and while I was initially ridiculed and criticised, I have been able to create an awareness at least within my family and relatives and a few friends, who have selectively changed their lives. With the networking medium being a major harbinger of change, you should continue doing the good work and keep inspiring people like me to make changes.

Cheers!

Hi Supraja
I am so glad to see all the great things you are doing...green living does include everything. Not just avoiding plastic. Being minimal, thinking twice before we do anything and everything in our daily life like avoiding synthetic products (clothes even) and think about the impact of our action on everything in general. I am so happy to have a friend like you. Every word you say means a lot to me. take care and be life friendly!
