Grow More Trees
Trees existed on Earth before man. They are the refuge for birds, animals and even many tribals. They give us wood for fuel and furniture.
Fruits like apple, banana, mango grow on trees. Besides, they provide many herbs haying medicinal value. They bring rains and help to maintain ecological balance. They absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen during photosynthesis. They provide shade to animals, birds, human beings and protect them from sun and rain. They holdjsoil firmly, reduce soil erosion and thus prevent flood and draught. There are different kinds of trees like neem, mango, walnut, oak, bamboo, sesame, teak, eucalyptus etc.
It is very unfortunate that man has indulged in deforestation for his greed. This has disturbed ecological balance and resulted in extinction of rare species of birds, animals, plants, herbs. Thus, the need of hour is adoption of afforestation programme like Van Mahotsava coupled with environmental awareness drive. Judicious and eco-friendly strategies of industrialisation, mining, construction and other development-oriented activities should be adopted.

The country is facing the biggest problem these days in the form of corruption. In fact corruption is not a new phenomenon. It existed in ancient times also. There are examples of corruption after that also. It is unfortunate that corruption increased during licence system. The facility for the people was misused by some people of vested interest.

Corruption is growing very fast these days. No department on section of life is untouched by it. Even officials and politicians are making easy money.

This clearly indicates that India is over populated. It affects the economy and living standard adversely. It causes poverty and unemployment. Contrary to the belief of uneducated multitude, large families are burden. On the earning hands of a family. It is the moral and social responsibility of parents to provide good life, food, health, education and other facilities to their children and an increase in the number of family members means an increase in the cost of living and responsibilities.
With high cost of living, rising prices and unemployment it is advisable to have small family with one or two children. China too was faced with a similar problem but she was alarmed in time and resorted to preventive measures. People should understand that in a small family they can give better opportunities, care and attention to each child. They can fulfil their duty towards their family properly and lead a blissful life. And all this can happen if people are educated enough to plan ‘a small and happy family-’

Man is made up of many qualities, both good and bad, and among the latter is anger. The nature of every human being is such that anything that gives offence to his sentiments or goes against his principles, excites his anger. The evils which result from anger are many. Under its influence a man loses his power of reasoning and judgement. Not being able to retain control over himself when angry, he does not know what he is doing or saying. Under its influence a man puts off his balance so much that he forgets his duty towards his superiors and may even go to the extent of saying things which are extremely insulting to them.
