I am
quite a boring person, I just found out– all my stories feature a
tree, what lack-of-imagination! I love to blow my trumpet and say things like, hey all my articles seem to have a leaf or a flower or a
water-body in them. Hmmm…
By the way, never,
never, never start a sentence with an I, is one of the earliest
lessons that I got on humbleness. As you can see, I’m a bad student.
Today, on World Environment Day, I’m going to be a really bad
student, and start at least the next ten sentences with an I ! I want
to be like a rebellious weed that grows stubbornly out of cracks and
under gardeners’ very feet. I want to do things that others do. I
want to trek to the Western Ghats and see ugly purple frogs and tiny
tree frogs. I want to be a cat that prowls stealthily in the Ghats. I
want to drink pure honey from the purest hive, like a bear in the
jungle. I don’t mind carrying a fancy hipflask full of masala chai
when I go on this trek. I’m very selfish, let me confess, and I want
to live well, and I want the same for my world – my family, my
friends, my city, my country, my world. 
I
think if I want all of the above, I need to be sensitive to the
environment around me, how boring! I really need to conserve and
respect nature, how painful! I better read more and do more than I’m
doing now, awww…groannn. I think, to start with,  I should order my set of books to
be given away as gifts to young readers I know. I should be smart and use the 25% discount to get a set of books with
environmental themes.

Thank
you for reading thus far : For that, I’ll be generous, and share the
link so that you too can order your copies of these books at a 25%. Click here please. Happy
Environment Day! 

P.S: I love the work of Ruchi Shah, whose illustration for the book The Cat in the Ghat is what is featured on this poster.
