Nothing Special (About Me)
15 year old, Grade X student, tinkerer, reluctant reader, procrastinator, computer geek, car enthusiast, eco-worrier and now an eco-warrior!
I study in Step by Step World School, Noida near New Delhi. I live with my parents, grandparents and my pet dog in Faridabad.
The idea to put some thoughts together and share as a blog started with my EVM school holiday project to read and comment on newspaper articles on anything that concerns our environment. I am interested in the subject and since am not an avid or regular newspaper reader thought it was a good thing to get me started, and become more aware.
And then Uttarakhand happened, and what was first seen as a natural calamity and as an act of God, started to unfold as something that could have been man made. Ill planned infrastructure projects and construction was thought to have added to the disaster and damage it created. As someone had nicely said, you can bribe anyone to get anything cleared, but you can not bribe nature. And the price was paid in human life and property. I knew that I had to do more and than a passive observer. The blog is just the start.
I leave you with a beautiful quote by Wallace – “The most beautiful thing in the world, is of course, the world itself.”
And something worth saving. Are you with me?
