India is a land of many paradoxes. There are people who strive hard to earn their bread and butter here, and then there are people who have all the luxuries of life. There are cultures which are forward thinking and open to changes, and then there are cultures which strongly hold to their roots. There are many beautiful tourist places in India which are rugged and barren, and there are places which are blessed with lush greenery and amazing forests
And each one of those paradoxes of India is beautiful in its own right. You don’t need to go looking for beauty in India. You come across it while exploring the land.
India is one of the mega-diverse nations in the world. It is called so because the country’s gamuts of life forms are wonderfully different wherever you might be. From extreme cold to extreme heat, coastal areas to rain forests, tropical jungles to mangrove belts, the extraordinary weather and climatic conditions have created homes and habitats for more than 50, 000 species of plants and 40,000 species of animals.
Interestingly, India is just 2 percent of the world land mass but 8 percent of the world’s biodiversity is found in the country.
16 types of forests are found in India including the evergreen tropical rain forests, dry alpine scrub forests, semi evergreen rain forests, deciduous monsoon forests, thorn forests, subtropical pine forests and more. India has some of the wettest, driest, hottest and coldest regions in the world.
But one must understand the following:
According to a TOI Article, “India is turning into a wasteland in the hands of the land mafia, politicians, hungry unemployed villagers and animal herders who cannot be stopped from carrying on their destruction and loot. An honest far thinking minister like Mr.Jairam Ramesh has enough enemies in his own ranks to cause his downfall. His is a voice in the disappearing wilderness. Unless there is a very drastic radical effort at all levels of the government and the population to redeem what is left, India’s ecological future is doomed.”
At BrainWeave we understand that the environment gives us so much without even demanding anything in return, the smallest we can gift back is not harming it.
We are aiming to do crowdsourcing plantation where we will provide consistent services with detailed information in our hands.
We want each one of us to join hands to become a part of the green revolution, no matter how small the contribution might be. BrainWeave believes that smallest efforts together can make a significant change.
