“We’ve excavated a century-old sea wall underwater. Maybe it’s the lost shoreline we’re looking for”, robot engineers recorded a note.
Animals in Human Voices #8
I like your intention (or maybe a sweet little blunder) of planting this sapling in a corner of the pot, leaving enough soil space in the center. Now, that makes for a perfect chill bed for this comfy connoisseur to stretch, curl, and take a nap after lunch.
But, don’t blame me if at all the plant self-destructs itself, wanting to give me all its space out of love. I’m just treating ours as a mutualistic relationship, while fertilizing my plant partner. Continue reading

You name members of our kind ‘Flash’ and do not hesitate to make fun of our natural speeds.
In this regard, I question you, why don’t you mind your own business at your natural speeds?
Even if you are accelerating, why can’t you be in control? Have you lost your nerve?
I can hear you. I am not as frustrated as this always. But, you humans make me yell. Do you want to know the reason?
Not a Death!
——– Maternal Mortality ——–
With her death, began his life!
——– Tribute ——–
Died for her after her life! Continue reading
The more unliveable our urban centres become, we as tourists retreat into the new-age oases – the sustainable hotels – which are just illusions of naturalness. Even when they have committed to reducing wastes and carbon footprints, how long will we be able to live in this fantasy without having to deal with the repercussions?
Isn’t the hope we’re dreaming of, also a dream?

These six-word stories that can be read alone or together, imply the creation and destruction phases of a tree. The female persona denotes the tree and the male persona, dependent wildlife.
Her growth, silent!
Her fall, heavy!
His sound changed,

Turning off lights on Earth Hour, I go to the terrace.
I admire the beauty of the full moon, thinking about the billion-year-old firefly that lights it, standing on Earth.
Earth Hour, organized by World Wide Fund for Nature, is a global grassroots movement uniting people to take action on environmental issues and protect the planet. Engaging a massive mainstream community, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights out event in Sydney, Australia in 2007.
It is an annual event held towards the end of March every year when people across the globe turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a commitment towards a better future.
Yes, it makes a difference.
Syzygy isn’t something that’s related only to astronomy. I browsed to find details on the word’s origin and Continue reading

World Oceans Day 2020
World Oceans Day is to celebrate and honour the oceans that connect us all together, and to remind the role of oceans in everyday life. This idea was first proposed in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Jeneiro, Brazil, and was officially implemented by the ‘United Nations’ in 2008.
The post is lengthy, around 900 words.
Why do we need to concern about the oceans when we do no direct harms to it?
Climate and weather of the landmasses are strongly influenced by oceanic circulation patterns. Drastic changes can heavily affect agriculture, animal life, followed by human lifestyle patterns to a greater extent if left unnoticed. Continue reading
