June 5th is observed as World Environment Day. The theme for 2020 is to celebrate biodiversity. The movement was started in 1972 by the United Nations and the slogan carried out was ‘Only One Earth’. This day allows people to draw attention towards issues that are beyond human concerns. It also tries to make a difference by bettering our behaviour towards nature and the environment. On this day, Mahesh Babu, his family and Rakulpreet Singh have taken a step towards educating people.
Watch Mahesh Babu and Rakulpreet in Spyder here:
Mahesh Babu shared a picture by the UN and quoted Dalai Lama, “It is our collective and individual responsibility to preserve and tend to the environment in which we all live.” He said that we can protect ourselves by protecting nature. “These challenging times have exposed the vulnerability of human life, for us to survive well, it’s important to create a healthy & balanced ecosystem.”
He added, “While we all stay home safe, let our voices be heard. Let our actions and words be the change. The future of humanity depends on us! Save water, save trees, save electricity, reduce carbon emissions, save forests, save our oceans, save animals! Choose what’s important to you! Start today! Let’s do this together!”
The actor’s better half, Namrata Shirodkar also wrote, “2020 has been an awakening! It’s our Mother Earth trying hard to reach out to us!” The former actor added, “We need to take care of her a little more. Show her much love, be kind to her children, the seas, the trees, the skies… We need to devote a little time from our everyday lives towards her so she can heal. Bring about the change in this lifetime of ours so that the next few generations reap the benefits along with us!”
If you think that’s all, well there is more. The Ghattammaneni parents have gone a few steps ahead and included their kids, Gautham and Sitara, in their mission. Mahesh Babu and his kids are seen planting trees in their backyard, with a promise to be better and to do better. Watch their videos here.
Not only that, but Tollywood’s leading lady, Rakulpreet also took this opportunity to share her thoughts. The actor, who is known for fitness and promoting a better lifestyle, took to her social media to announce a new partnership. Rakul has joined hands with the popular non-profit organisation, PETA, to promote a plant-based lifestyle to save animals. She made this announcement through a quirky and interesting graphic.
