Poetry : Solace hidden in a Box

find solace near you - auraofthoughts

U tiptoed in my life quiet and calm

New place to adjust and find warmth

Your shining contour gleamed so bright

Connection with U was a super delight

Me just stared you from afar

A little hesitant with confused altar

I wished a smooth journey with smile

Shared my lonely stories with pride

How and Why to celebrate festivals in an eco-friendly manner

The festive season is here, and so it marks the beginning of the positivity, laughter, and loads of preparations in the house begins. Many feel the buzzword of eco-friendly products starts as soon as the festive season embarks but the reality is the environment-friendly products are around the year only now, we focus on them. 

Most of us understand the importance of eco-friendly products or habits that can help the environment to retain mother nature but many times fail to reach the right channel. It is a proven fact that collective effort at a single time brings in the change, and that is the reason it is pleaded again and again by the environmentalist to make the wise decision during festivals. Mother Teresa aptly explained the scenario in the brilliant quote “None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful”.
