Green Celebration

                        
This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 33; the thirty-third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is 'Celebrations'
           -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



“Oh! No! Not again!” cried Mother Nature in frustration.
“Please, Not another Celebration!”

Every festival brings with it some destruction,
Water, Air, Land or Noise Pollution,
Led by ignorant people without any consideration.

“Oh! No! Not again!” cried Mother Nature in frustration.
“Please, Not another Celebration!”



Rejoicing ten days of tradition,
Unaware that it is already lost to modernization,
You kill lives with every toxic immersion.

When will there be any realization,
That it’s not just the aquatic life in elimination,
So is your, sea-food eating, population.

“Oh! No! Not again!” cried Mother Nature in frustration.
“Please, Not another Celebration!”



Are you destroying the 10 headed evil incarnation?
Or is it the world’s respiration?
Sometimes I wonder, are you all really a worthy creation?

Good winning over evil is a mere assumption,
Your crackers are but smaller weapons of mass destruction,
To hurt me like this, who gave you permission?

“Oh! No! Not again!” cried Mother Nature in frustration.
“Please, Not another Celebration!”



You think brighter the colors, more the elation,
Toxins in the color are lost to attraction,
Wood and water wasted is just an addition.

So lost you are in your jubilation,
Unaware of your actions,
Haven’t you ever heard of Bio-degradation?

“Oh! No! Not again!” cried Mother Nature in frustration.
“Please, Not another Celebration!”


  
Festivals are a small part of the demolition,
I die a million deaths everyday because of industrialization,
Poison in the name of oversimplification.

Celebrating life is its self proclamation,
It’s nothing but a step closer to extinction,
Wake up, children, from your hallucination.

“Oh! No! Not again!” you need to cry in frustration.
“Please, Not another Celebration!”



Celebration is an inevitable part of our tradition,
Togetherness and harmony is its signification,
Forget your selfish acts of recreation.

Help me in my restoration,
Before all that is left of me is destruction,
All it takes is the right education.

“Oh! No! Not again!” let nobody cry in frustration.
“It’s time for Green Celebration!”

    1. @Karan Shah

      Thank you, I initially stopped before the last 3 paras and then thought I wasn't telling anybody what to do, just complaining about what not to do. So added this. I am glad it conveys its message effectively :)

  8. Reading this reminded me of the "Oath" I had taken in school.. "I will not burn any crackers" :) and I haven't burnt any since then. I will try to act more responsibly in case of other festivals and celebrations as well..
    Exceptionally compiled and written very well! I liked it..and a *thumbs up* for the message!

    ATB for BAT :)

    1. Thank you Megha. I really wish every school incorporates a oath of such kind. If our children are educated then I am sure we can hope for a Greener planet.

      ATB for BAT and have a safe and Green Diwali

  13. There are SOOO many one liners in this poem that I loved. I think this has got to be one of the most meaningful poems I have ever read.

    I think it's a terrific job! And with a great meaning. I hope people take away a lot from it. Thank you very much for the effort. It's a very special poem. And another good thing about it is - you tried to cover a lot of subjects. You didn't just end at 1 or 2. Terrific!

  14. Penned down really well.
    Don't appreciate the underlying thought though. Guess, to each one, their own beliefs and prejudices.

  16. True. In our celebrations we do end up hurting and disturbing the balance in Nature, we do need green celebration. Good Luck :-)
