All world is celebrating earth hour from 8:30pm to 9:30 pm today, to show their love and responsibility towards earth.Read history of "Earth hour" here ,amp; Time line here and also watch Official video of Earth hour
In Pakistan too earth hour is being observed in different areas, all the unnecessary lights have been turned off as well as the famous and important buildings are also presenting a dark look.Different TV channels are also encouraging public to switch off their lights to get their love for the earth recorded.A famous private TV channel presented their news bulletin in dark news room with all the lights off.
I was thinking that instead of just showing off, we need to take some real practical steps if we love our planet, but we the humans have become materialistic and selfish as well.In our love for material things, we even try to betray ourselves. I simply cant understand that whats the benefit of switching off the lights for an hour?It can definitely bring no change.To show love to the planet we live on, one must try to grow trees, one must try to not to use plastic bags, one must try to not to burn the heaps of rubbish.But should avoid such silly things.
Would you like turning your lights off while living in a country like Pakistan?In my opinion if we are supposed to show our love like this, than Pakistan is the only nation which loves PLANET EARTH most.I can bet it.This is the nation which shows its responsibility not at any specific hour but many times a day for many countless hours, for an unlimited time in the form of load shedding..
I just cant understand that why our government tries to copy other developed countries in the things which they consider a fun,and its their right if they do so.Their each and every person is responsible and hardworking but we proud Pakistanis don't copy them in good and productive things. Here in Pakistan,people are living below or at poverty line, they don't have bread,water,clothing and shelter.Electricity is far-fetched thing for many people because of heavy bills.Does it suit to ask for switching off the lights??Shame on our government, who just loves to copy others but don't use sense!
Dear reader,did you switch off your lights to show love or you had a power cut during this time?Don't worry then,K.E.S.C and WAPDA did it for you!
