Environment And Nature Poem by Ratnakar Mandlik

Environment And Nature

Rating: 5.0

Myopic vision on development'
Ushered in through materialism'
Fueled and fanned by egos
Of path breaking intellectuals,
Exploited by cunning scoundrels
Is pushing mother earth towards extinction.

Unhealthy competition with mother nature
Unleashed by the coterie for supremacy,
To be omnipotent and master of universe,
Is the root cause of developments grotesque.
Disturbances caused in nature's equilibrium
Resulted in Global Warming and Parched Humanism.

Awesome discoveries and inventions
And their use for selfish aggrandizement.
Too costly may prove the negligence
And insult of the life streams,
Their upbringings and nourishment
Ordained by nature and it's Environment.

Minimizing carbon emission in eco-friendly ways
Stretching development suitable to environment,
Accepting it's supremacy, paving human role,
In research, inventions n their encashment
To ensure long lasting and sublime joys.

Yes concern for environment is great, but there seems still some hope that we'll muddle along somehow. And no one wants to sacrifice. A nice timely write. I too may have penned many on Mother Earth, environment, human greed and the like. I searched for Nature and environment and the PH search engine blushed every time.

A brilliant write that divulges the naked truth how modern man is responsible in troubling nature's equilibrium subsequently leading to ‘global warming’. So called ultramodern discoveries an inventions have lost their ground in making a balance in afforestation and deforestation! Excellent piece with scientific temper…….10

The first stanza where you describe the reasons for our present plight is so powerful. The last stanza where you suggest the remedies for conserving our environment is equally effective and farsighted! Altogether the readers get a feel of the concern of the poet over the alarming rise in pollution and global warming. Indeed a great poem!
