Etawah. Trees and plants have great importance in our life. Trees and plants keep our environment pollution free. Trees take carbon dioxide and release oxygen, which is very essential for our life. Trees and plants not only keep the environment balanced, along with this they also have importance in our life. We get many medicines from trees and plants, which prove to be helpful in keeping us healthy. We also get wood from trees. This wood is used for our various works.
Trees also prove helpful in getting rain. In the event of excessive rainfall, these trees prevent the erosion of the land. This stops the erosion. Life is lost by the cutting of a tree.
At present we are facing the problem of pollution. Environmental pollution has increased so much that it has become difficult to breathe in the open air. While one reason for this is the unlimited increase in population, the other major reason is the severe shortage of trees and plants. We have disturbed the balance of nature and that is why it is difficult to get pure air. In ancient times, special emphasis was given on planting trees and worshiping them. It is said in the Puranas that planting a tree gives as much virtue as the fame of ten virtuous sons.
Often we are indifferent to trees and plants. Indiscriminate felling of trees continues and we do not even pay attention to it. We are cutting them for our selfishness. Many mountainous places have become badly victim of this trend. Yes, the ‘Chipko movement’ has definitely awakened public consciousness towards them, but a lot remains to be done.
Trees also prove helpful in getting rain. In the event of excessive rainfall, these trees prevent the erosion of the land. This cannot be done. River and trees are also closely related to each other.
We have to pay proper attention to plantation otherwise the increasing population will not be able to get pure air to breathe. Now people are starting to understand the importance of forests. There is still a need to bring more consciousness in this area. Along with this, the increasing population will also have to be controlled. Population control will be lost.
To live life properly, it is necessary to stop the felling of trees immediately. Every tree has a special significance. No tree should be cut. We should see it as essential for life. Tree is our life. Without it we too would be as lifeless as a cut tree.
