A little of a lot of a little…

The title is confusing. Frankly, it does not add up and does not make sense. But then perhaps it does; it sounds like it does, but does it?

An inconvenient truth
, the documentary by Al Gore on global warming makes me feel this way; confused to the point of denial, but skeptical to the point of proactive inspiration.

We live in a fragile world. The city of Lahore itself has so much diversity in terms of the environment and only recently we have caught up with how the simple act of importing one tree into an eco system can change the eco system itself. One tree. The Eucalyptus tree that has been planted all across Pakistan has been covered in the media recently; it shows you how this albeit beautiful tree, when planted out of moderation context, can wreak havoc on the environment. One mature Eucalyptus tree sucks up 80 to 100 litres of water from the soil PER DAY!

That’s just one tree! What about conservation? Who will switch off that light when you know you can afford to foot the bill? Will you do it for ‘conservation’? Is it hip and cool enough yet to conserve and protect your extremely finite resources?

You have to start somewhere, you have to start some how
What better place than here, what better time than now

Partly produced by Participate Films; now this is the kind of production house that one should have here. Not only will it be economically viable to run as a business, but will also be hugely beneficial to the society at large.
