Splendid Cosmos

By Maumita Bhattacharya

A cold, gusty breeze blew such that I could feel and hear its absolute presence. Above a clear sky with sparkling stars as if god has fixed diamonds on the roof. All around a calm and peaceful aura where one can meditate. I must admit that it was a magnificent experience - the world' longest lunar eclipse in 100 years on June, 15th at midnight. I was on my terrace looking at the event with thrill. I could hear the chirping sounds of my neighbors from their terrace and could see few silhouettes fixing the angle to capture the best shot. It was beautiful to watch.  I captured in my eyes and saved it in my bag of beautiful memories. That day I experienced the beauty of our nature which has amazed me so much that I don't find anything beautiful in this universe other than the universe itself. 

Nature is miraculous, calm, pure, exuberant, happy, harmless, loving, and caring in every way whether it’s in the form of rain, tree, fruit, sun, beautiful creatures as butterflies, sea shells etc. Anything related to nature always reflects pure beauty. We are fortunate that we can associate ourselves with this beauty of creation but unfortunately instead of respecting it we hardly care for it. Being young adults we are also very much aware about recent changing ecology. Why can't we understand that we are only responsible for our own destruction! Global warming, greenhouse effect...these are the outcomes of our own decision. Never forget that we have borrowed the land from our children.

Once Logal Pearsall Smith said "What humbugs we are, who pretend to live for Beauty, and never see the Dawn!” Nature is like the paint brush of God. He communicates to us through his paintings because he loves all of us but unfortunately we fail to reciprocate his emotions. Instead we tear it off to make something which could be expended by us for our own comfort. Nature is absolutely altruistic it heals us up when we get injuries, it gives us food when we are hungry, it gives us water when we are thirsty, it gives us shelter when we have no land to sleep, it makes us smile by offering us beautiful flowers and sometimes act as shoulder of friend and what we have given it back?? Industrialization, globalization, we care for anything else other than our own comfort!

Nature is calm but when it becomes furious we start to pray and expect that God could never harm us. We are great fools who always claim to be powerful and intelligent. I believe you have to be the change to see the change in the world. Learn to appreciate it, love it, respect it, it'll love you back for sure, and if you don't believe me try it. Plant a tree, talk to it, feel its growth, you are growing not only a tree but a power in it. Furthermore watch the video and the link given, you'll realize and understand what nature has given to you and what you should do in return.
