Concern for Environment

“These beauteous forms have not been to me as a landscape to a blind man’s eyes.” – Wordsworth

Environment refers to all that surrounds us. In our surroundings we have both living beings and non-living things. Air, water, soil, animals, plants, micro-organisms and various elements constitute the environment.

Concern for environment makes us respect, appreciate, protect and regenerate environment. It evokes a love for nature. Concern for environment makes us conscious of the gifts of nature. It forces us to use the gifts of nature judiciously avoiding waste and destruction. Concern for environment forbids us to abuse natural resources.

Concern for environment helps us to create an environmental awareness in the minds of all people. It makes us prevent pollution, deforestation, and depletion of natural resources. It prompts us to act, to form nature clubs and to motivate people to work for clean and healthy environment.


The traveller begged for shade. The tree gave it and then the traveller felt like staying with the tree and building his home near it. He needed wood for his home. His eyes fell on the tree. He looked for an axe to cut the tree. Then he begged for a handle for his axe from the tree and the tree gave it. After he made the axe, he cut the tree and built his house. But when the house was built, the traveller cried and felt lonely and hot. And he left the place.
