Luna's Rally for Rivers' Experience

Luna's Rally for Rivers’ Experience

Meghna ‘Phoenix’ Ghatak

Rally for Rivers is an ongoing, nationwide awareness campaign addressing the depleting conditions of our rivers by Isha Foundation. Isha Foundation is a nonprofit, spiritual organization, founded in 1992 by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev in Coimbatore, India. Run entirely by full time and part time volunteers from across the world, the organization kick started this campaign in September 3rd 2017 with massive one month long awareness drive to get six Indian states to sign Memorandums of Understanding (MoU). On October 3rd, 2017, Sadhguru presented a river revitalization draft proposal to Shri Narendra Modi which is now being studied by Niti Ayog and the Ministry of Water Resources.
Hence during the month of September that year, supporters of Isha Foundation did their bit in constituting the amendment in their respective cities. People were given t shirts with the campaign’s logo on it and asked to give missed calls on a particular number to garner more support. To bring forth some innovativeness, I involved my yellow Labrador pup, Luna to the awareness drives by not just donning the shirt myself but also on her. Luna enjoyed long walks so I put on her lease over the t shirt and took her to the walkathon organized by the supporters. Needless to say, she got a lot of media attention. Here are a few glimpses of her ardent support to save the life lines of India – the rivers.

Diary of an Animal Lover

Diary of an Animal Lover Ayushi Sharma Since childhood I have an enormous love for animals. I have had pets all my life which include dogs, parrots, pigeons, rabbits, fish, and even cows. Currently I have two cows, two rescued dogs and more than 40 pigeons. With time I have realized that there has been no greater feeling in the world than saving a life even if it’s one at a time. I was born and brought up in Bhopal, MP and I have loved animals since the day I was born. My brother calls me a naturalist as I have always felt a strong connection with nature and animals. People say that they cannot imagine their world without their phones or Wi-Fi connection but if someone asks me I would say that I cannot imagine a world without animals. For me the life of any other creature is as much important as the life of a human being. People need to understand that animals also feel loneliness, they also get hurt. Once I rescued three dogs and five puppies from a horrible lady who used

Water Birds of Bhopal: Shahpura Diaries

Water Birds of Bhopal: Shahpura Diaries Meghna ‘Phoenix’ Ghatak Indian Cormorant  Every Bhopal dweller who has to commute between Manisha Market, Chunnabhatti, Kolar Road and MP Pollution Control Board, has to cross this man made water body that sits like a bowl collecting rain and sewage water. Surrounded by ornamental palm trees amidst busy traffic flowing from the B and C sectors of Arera Hills and Shahpura Area, the lake is also used for agriculture and aquaculture purposes post its construction in 1974-75. Morning and evening walks in the parks adjacent to the lake, known as Bhagwan Rhishabhdev Udhyan, brimming with young families and energetic toddlers, pushing plastic balls around, is incomplete without staring at the sky changing colors over the still steely hued water. Little Egret My personal endeavor had been this past ten years, to buy a packet or two of bread from a neighboring Sanchi Milk Store and to drop the bread in the water granule by granule. School

Are You A Pet Parent? What Can You Do During Corona Virus Quarantine?

Are You A Pet Parent? What Can You Do During Corona Virus Quarantine?  Meghna 'Phoenix' Ghatak We all have been reading daily that COVID-19 is a pneumonia-like epidemic disease spread by a virus with its epicenter in Wuhan, China. While it's unfortunate that people from China or with the appearance of China are at the wrong end of the bullying, multiple pets have been abandoned sadly for rumor has it that they can transmit the virus. Numerous companies have provided the option of work from home to their employees but while education institutions, entertainment shops etc have closed, most people in India do not understand that India has entered phase 2 and might soon enter phase 3 of the COVID-19 epidemic. It's satisfactory to hear that people who are working in smaller private sector firms and institutes have also been finally allowed to practice social distancing. Now, if you are a pet parent, what can you do during this quarantine time with your pets? 1
