The word nature is derived from the Latin word ‘natura’, literally meant “birth”. The concept of nature as a whole, the physical universe. But nature is also a silent teacher, friend, philosopher and guide.
No wonder our ancestors used to look up to nature to understand about life itself. Our ancient scriptures are filled with hymns devoted to nature, as we treated nature as God in many instances. The Sun, Moon, Trees, Rivers, etc. all were treated as Divine creatures.
Nowadays due to rat race in day-to-day living, human beings are alienated from nature. In the name of social & technological advancement, began a gradual and endless exploitation of mother nature. Before we could realize, our relationship with this planet changed for the worse.
As a result, Nature is now striking back. Through frequent natural disasters like those witnessed in Kedarnath and Fukushima, Nature is giving us an alarm that we are pushing the earth to a terrible vortex of destruction. Mankind is standing helplessly amidst nature’s fury. Not anymore! Come, let us bring back our green fertile lively planet. Let our children grow up in the fresher air, with the chirping of birds and the sweet smell of flowers.
www.sanjib.in is a humble effort in this huge responsibility. Some moments of the innate bond of mankind and nature is captured in Sanjib Das’ camera. Let us forget our daily grind for a while and drift along this website to take a peek at nature’s beauty and wonder, and to try to do our bit in the revival and conservation of Mother Nature.
