“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” — Jim Rohn

We have heard several times from our family, colleagues, friends about the importance of having good health.  We all need to take care of our body, work out, take care of our food etc. etc.

But the health of our body also depends on many external factors but which are in our hand. The external environment, Climate, Air Quality, Clean water, fresh fruits and vegetables and many other things.

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” — Mae West 

The bigger question here is have we done it right……. We are civilized and have developed into a sustainable society, but what actually sustains a society…. is it we human beings or this nature and its resources. We have over utilized everything and in the name of development we have almost destroyed this planet. Now we are fighting for resources. One country produces something in excess and the people of some other country suffers and not getting enough to eat. We cannot share the excess because we invented a beautiful subject called “Economics” which teaches us to  to make more money. If we have money we are successful and can survive and if we do not have enough we have no right to live, and we call it a sustainable society.

The cities are expanding, the beautiful nature is being covered by concrete jungles and we search good health in these concrete jungles. We loose our health to earn money and then we spend money to get back the heath that we have lost and we call ourselves intelligent species.

 “I was born intelligent, but education ruined me”

The time has come to change our education curriculum. With all the current subjects the teaching of “Sustainable Nature” should be made mandatory. With our busy routine we should all take out time to understand, admire and preserve nature. The chirping of birds is more beautiful than the sound of polluting vehicles. Only we fail to hear that.
