Urbanization..Bane or Boon ?

Updated: Jul 12, 2020





We live in this #concreteworld of #urbansettings


Looks so very comfortable, but in a #syntheticworld


Living in multi-storied buildings, driving down to office daily, meandering through mad unruly traffic, working in carpeted corporate setting. This has taken us completely out of #nature


When I flash back to my childhood days, into the jungles of tribal Odisha, the days of #gayabandon, Trekking into forest, having picnic there, plucking fruits fresh from trees and relishing, listening to sounds of jungle, running on kaccha road, enjoying the paddy fields and the abundance of #sun,#water,#rain,#flora and #fauna, it warms up. It tells me how we are an integral part of this nature


It may look wild and yet we survive due to it


More #urbanisation is only bringing the ugly side of greed and consumption, removing us from the #sustainableliving. If at all this earth is looking so #beautiful in the entire #universe, it is due to this rich #intelligent #unadulterated nature


And yet , so stupidly, our so called #growth, creating this #concretejungle, is ruining our #natural rustic #etherealbeauty into #lifeless, monstrous,#barren machines of #GDP


Can we live dispersed amidst full blown nature, working from smaller clusters and homes and stop felling trees completely?
