It sounds like all of us had read this adage somewhere. Is not it? Of course yes. Just look on the walls around us in the office. The steps are not so much small actually. “Global warming, protect animals, orphan care,donate organs, donate blood” are not all impossible? The most interesting one is “donating organs”. It is not like just giving ten bucks to any needy person. People are afraid of giving money to others, how can they donate organs? In this way “global warming”. I mean what is my role in global warming? I am sitting in a centralized a.c room. So how can i help out in this?
In this way i thought it is damn useless poster on our office wall. Why it is pasted here? Even i am thinking nobody had thought about all these without any reason. But if we closely think some more time we will realize mindfire has really contributed to some of the above points. Some more small steps we need to take too. I just want to mention few steps below.
Recycling the waste product is my first point. What is the need of recycling plastic if we produce less plastic waste . Mindfire is on its way to make its environment plastic free by giving cups and water bottle to everyone. But are we really concerned about following this in our day to day life ? Do we really think for a pollution free society?
Protecting animals may look absurd to us at first glance. How can we save tiger sitting in office?Even those who are killing them will not look for any facebook post and will not learn from request through social sites. So a small step like going some forest village area and making tribal people aware of it directly can really help.Its not that easy but not impossible too.
Mindfire had the dream of taking care of some orphans from the beginning and had already taken initiative as an organization by visiting bhima bhoi blind school and helping out blind students emotionally as well as financially. It is really encouraging to all of us and the spirit must not die.
We will not live here thousand years .But we still can see this beautiful world forever if we give our sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, any baby’s smile, love in the eyes of a woman . What is the value of burying our useful bodies.
If burying something is really needed then bury our misbehavior, our all weaknesses. But never bury us, we are not useless even after death.
Finally all the ideas , philosophy discussed above are not just my thoughts ,because the poster in our office wall is not damn useless!
