Global Cooling

There is all this talk about global warming and corrupt politicians and ruthless businesses and blah blah blah... but not many seem to be doing much about it (other than ranting)... and there seem to be very few things that individually and collectively we can do together to thwart this menace...

A path towards Global Cooling...


...can be very simple: planting more trees... well not just planting really, Adopting trees after planting them is also as important as planting them... without giving too much away, Art of Living has taken on the momentous task of adopting (after planting) 100 million trees in the next 3 months! WAYE and the YES!+ gang have committed to doing at least 100,000 of these (worldwide)...

Right now, we almost have a website in place on this theme (and i guarantee you it has more on it than you will suspect :)), but i need a really nice name for it, that's romantic, cool and is also optimized for SEO...

So, inviting name suggestions for website right away... also if you can think of some cool designs for tshirts, banners etc and make them and send them to us it would help a lot!

Of course each of you have to see to it that you plant and adopt a tree right away, so think of which tree you would like to adopt and watch grow... and where you are going to plant it... figure that out over the weekend... Hopefully, i will see you on Monday(maybe even sooner), with more news on this superb project!!

Lets make more of our planet look like this:


Jai Gurudeva!

Definately bau.. Lets make our mother earth look more green.., I have adopted 3 trees of one street where i go for a walk and on this weekend I will plant trees atleast in my society where in i could water them every day. They would be 5 trees as I would have to arrange tree guards for my 5 green kids :)

Random Reflections said...

u know Bawa - what a coincidence. You are currently in Pune and Pune has a rocking "Green Pune" initiative going on. I was just at BMCC college where Dinesh Bhaiyya was supposed to come - but didn't - hope all is well . It was great to see the college principal, vice principal and others show up and support AOL's tree plantation initiative. Here are some pics :

Really Amazing Tree Plantatain Idea!!!

I 'll adopt as many as much i can adopt! at starting juz 3 plants....
juz 'll develope my family..

Please Attension:
If someone is living in Desert Like Area's or Region!!(in short in scarcity of water)

I had worked on Project..

Itz Fabulous....


It have many benifits!
1. You dont have to take care of water ...
Tree it self takes water as per its requirement

2.It hardly costs 9-10Rs. per tree..

All you need is a Brick(or any Hard Porous Substance)
a Pipe,
(Not much Intelligence)
n important...something to join BLACK PIPE n Brick

You must be thinking why only Black Pipe!
cos Through Black pipe no sunlight can be enter..so no algi or Fungus in Pipe..
If you use transperent Pipe...More probalities of Choke up there...


So...

Itz Simple once you understood it...


P.S: This Project Already got many Awards by Indian Goverment
as its usefullness was proved by me...

But as we Live in India..
n we know how good is our Govt. is...i wont comment : (

Juz they made it in Project File..
Gave me National Medal..
n nothing was implemented!!!!!!


I WILL LIKE TO ASK MY FRIENDS WHO ARE READING THIS ..

WILL YOU HELP ME TO IMPROVE IT!!

Those who are really intrested in Planting..
But face Water Problems..

They can DEFINATELY contact me on

Abhishek Suryawanshi
surya.2020@yahoo.co.in


I will send you EVERYTHING in Detail!


I juz Modified our Traditional Irrigation System! ;)

It saves 80% WATER!

I have proofs n Results..

In this method no Evaporation takes place...


Who can apply this "Suction Method Of Irrigation"

1. Those have scarcity of Water

2. Those who have less time to spend wid Family Members(Trees)!!

3.Those who dont have enough money to maintain good health of tree
as this DOESNT require any artificial chemical...


I have personally worked on Project for 2 years...

And itz Results Fabulous!!


So if you want to make Our Mother Earth greener...


Letz do it...



SPECIAL THANKS

recently..as learnt from Yes!+ Cource..(Puna Cource..still going :p)

I wont like to TRY!

WE WILL JUZ DO IT....

Bau ,
Yes+ team Indore has already started with Mission green earth.As a post Utsav Activity we are going to all the colleges who've helped us during utsav and we are getting wonderful response from new institutes too.Also it is helping a great deal to generate the next yes +course while we are making the students aware of this plantation drive.
we have taken target for 50,000 trees....and what a response from all the colleges!!!! and media is also covering the same. Today only there was a Photosesion of yes + gang planting "laxmi taru".it will be published in tomorrow's news papper "Dainik Bhaskar" which is one of the main news paper of indore.
we are specially targeting colleges,resorts and big factories as they all have gardners ,so it becomes easy for post plantation care.
And we have already made mission green earth t-shirts which we wear during these plantation drives(i will send ud design n photograph):)

Jai Gurudev, Bau,
I had heard about this noble initiative from you personally in bangalore.
After which I went on a vacation to Rajasthan.Quite indicative,I thought!
Coming back to Mumbai now,what I see through my living room window was an inspiration on its own.
It is the view of the Garden that my mother has with great enthusiasm brought to life herself.
Over the years I have seen the garden grow from its humble beginnings to what is now I call a 'mini Jungle'. ;)
Here is where you'll find a view out of my living window,out into the jungle..

dearest Bawa :)

greenark.org (green Ark)

Ark inspired by Noah's Ark ... the ultimate, important, urgent step we need to take in-order to survive happily.
The trees are our Noah's Ark. And only we can plant trees.
So both parties (we and the greens) become each others' Ark, hence pointing to the mutual dependence.

Bawa please give an idea on what type of a name we need ~ till now nthn has been decided so you must be having sth better in yr mind (i'm very sure) ;D
Jai Gurudeva :)
