Nature:-   As a famous poet said, “What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare.” We have all learned that nature is man’s best friend. Does anyone find time to just sit and listen to the sounds around us? The answer is sadly a big NO. India is a country which is adorned with much scenic beauty. Due to the captivating geographical beauty, we have places that are called ‘Gods Own Country’, ‘City of Garden’, ‘paradise of earth’ etc. Sadly these gifts of God are slowly diminishing. There are people who go for morning walk to avoid health hazards like diabetes, cholesterol, blood pressure etc. If we watch these people closely, we can see that even when they are walking through canopy of trees in a park with sounds of birds chirping around them, they will have their headsets plugged onto their ears. It would have been better if they just listen to the music of the birds, feel the rattle of the breeze and enjoy fresh air around them. This itself can improve our health. Many a poets have described nature in its full beauty. If we live hand in hand with nature we can avoid being stressed. As we all know stress is the prime cause of all diseases. When we build villas, sky scrapers and concrete jungles around us we should also think about planting at least one tree for each building we construct. We all should find time to just stand and stare.

Nature is in existence since beginning, much before our existence. The forces of nature balance themselves in a manner which is beyond our comprehension . Being brainiest animal on the earth we have learn to get  maximum out of nature. It has become an integral part of our lives.It India  we appreciate the blessings nature has  bestows on us and worship elements of nature in various ways. We also compare nature with mother. The beauty of nature has been appreciated by the sages in the past and in the in the works of poets and artists, at present. In times of our downs moments we look toward nature for inspiration. Our mood and feelings are greatly influenced by nature. When the sky gets cloudy and the rain falls in torrents, we feel a bit melancholy. Similarly moonlit night can awaken the love in us. Sunlight in the early winter morning give us hope and inspiration.  Beyond providing divine pleasure, abundant beauty of nature can be gainfully utilized for  therapeutic use for sick minds and bodies. What ever we get in our life is from nature, be it oxygen, food , electricity and petrol etc etc. Every time we cut down a tree, every time an oil spill despoils the ocean, every time we burn petrol, every time we pollute river, let us remember that we are destroying the most precious inheritance. It is the nature which hits us back in form of natural calamities because of our exploitation beyond tolerance by nature. It is nothing but the warning by nature. So it is all the more essential and binding on us as Indian  that we do our best to preserve nature.
