A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Nature’.
Google defines the term ‘nature’ to be “the phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, the landscape, and other features and products of the earth, as opposed to humans or human creations.”
Simply put, whatever exists in the Universe by itself without the touch of human beings can be classified as natural or nature in itself. This, as the definition clearly states, is of course not specific to living things but to non-living things that are not man-made as well. Examples include air, sunlight, and soil.
To shed light on the importance of nature, William Shakespeare stated, “One touch of nature makes the whole world kin”. Indeed, our basic necessities of survival– food, water, air, sunlight, and shelter– all come from nature. Without nature, in fact, human beings would cease to exist.
Albert Einstein once said, “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Yes, we ought to cherish nature and protect it!
Mahatma Gandhi said, “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed”. However, man has indeed succumbed to greed and is mercilessly overusing nature without giving back anything in return.
We need to immediately put a stop to this. Conserving nature is extremely crucial in today’s times, bearing in mind the state of our future generations to come. Without nature and the resources it provides, the survival of the human race as a whole would terminate. Given the rapid destruction of nature taking place, this might happen sooner than later!
Before pointing fingers at others and waiting for someone to save nature, let us all take small initiatives to help nature conservation. Let’s plant trees. Let’s save electricity. Let’s save water. Let us consume fuels such as petroleum less. Let us also use ACs less.
Let’s conserve nature.
