Being an Eco Warrior.

I am back! It might look like I was hibernating! The fact was, Joshua fell sick repeatedly and he needed much of my attention. I couldn’t think of anything else other than his health. He has recovered now. I know that I havent kept my promises, of uploading his snaps. Please bear with me, as you have always done.
I have a lot of things to share with you all. Most important one is that, I have joined the Eco Club – an initiative run at my office and I am so proud to be a part of it. We had a meeting today, to discuss the action items for this month. They had earlier organised a ‘Tree Plantation Day’ and we are expecting a Potted Plants Show this month. We had a good response from our colleagues and the results are encouraging. We send out eco related mails to create awareness. I really appreciate with the way our company is taking up the responsibility for this social cause. I would also encourage other companies to do so. I have started taking up a few steps to be an Eco Warrior. I read that blackle saves energy, as the screen is predominantly black and that it is powered by Google. There was a request, asking the viewers to spread the word. I was so convinced, that I have made blackle as my homepage. With this, every time I open a new IE, I help in saving energy. I would recommend you to do this as well or include the following in your email signature – Blackle.com – Saving energy one search at a time.
We have planted 2 Gulmohar saplings right in front of our apartments. Its my prayer that, God with His abundant mercy will bless the effort of our hands and help it grow 🙂
I shall give you the other updates, in my next post!! 🙂 Have a great day!!

Gardening

I have been so obsessed with gardening since January. In fact, I had a quite a big garden in my hometown. I didnt think of it at Chennai till now, and was determined to have it only after Joshua’s birth. Now that we are a bit settled, I find it to be the right time to garden. I already have about 28 Potted / Container plants. I somehow relate plants with a baby. It relaxes and refreshes your mind. Every time I find a new leaf / bud coming up, I am so filled with joy and it spreads to others. I have a few Crotons, Roses, Cactus, Chrysanthemums etc. I am also planning to set up a Vegetable garden. With Joshua’s birthday coming up, I hardly find time to get those additional Containers / pots. I also have a plan to set up a Window box garden This is not a common one in India. So let me see, on how I can get it done with the local people.
