With the increase in global warming,the only hope of mankind seems to be trees that can restore balance. The increase in population, lots of trees are cut on a daily basis. This deforestation can lead to several disasters. The need of the hour is to grow trees and adopt afforestation.
Trees provide us with many benefits like they reduce noise pollution, the bind the soil together so as to prevent soil erosions, they lower the temperature by causing rainfall, they reduce the possibility of flood and storm runoff. They are also known as carbon sinks as they accumulate carbon in themselves by growing.
An increase in the living standards of people has resulted in the Ozone hole. Extra use of refrigerators, ACs are responsible for producing Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) which are responsible in depleting Ozone layer. Depleting of Ozone layer will cause skin cancers, colour blindness and other problems which we will regret later.

It is our responsibility to save trees to save ourselves. One such initiative is taken by Purushottam Das Gupta. Purushottam felt sad when the trees on the streets were cut down to plant new trees and the news ones are not given the proper care.
Puroshottam is an Auto Rickshaw driver in Thane, Mumbai. Purushottam with his family decided to plant new trees and take care of the existing trees. With this mission, he started carrying a 15 litre. Bottle to provide water to the trees. When his own efforts were not sufficient, he called the other Auto Rickshaw Drivers and urged them to join him in this mission. Purushottam named the mission as ‘Sadbhavana- Hara Bhara Bharat’.
Today he has around 50 members in his group whose name he has written in the register. Puroshottam Das urged the members to celebrate their special days by planting trees. He celebrated his anniversary in March by planting two trees.

Purushottam with other members celebrated the World Environmental Week from 5th June to 11th June by planting 50 trees. Now they have their Whatsapp group in which they post about the tree planting calendar.
Puroshottam is an example for all of us. Instead of cribbing about pollution, one has to take a stand on his own.
