Today 5th June 2018 is the Tenth birth anniversary of this blog. On this day in 2009 this blog was launched, and since then, albeit slowly, this blog has been progressing and continuing with the support of all who have been associated and visited this blog time to time.

This year the World Environment Day theme is ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’!!

And this year our own country India is the host for celebration of this day World-wide.

Few years back I had penned a poem as a ‘self-narrative’ by a ‘polybag (Panni)’.

The poem was in Hindi and for today’s presentation I have got its translation into English done by my daughter Ashwini.

Keeping my write up simple and limited to this much only and once again Thanking all, I present this translation, as a post for today’s occasion here;


I am a ‘polybag’ wandering places,
Wandering just like the other members of my species are,
Spreading throughout and travelling into the unknown,
Getting ignored with no hopes of getting cared and cured
Yet I keep wishing, for someone to pick me up in their loving arms,
I wish someone would take me to my rightful ‘disposal’, the place where I belong.
I wonder where my siblings are,
Maybe they’re wretched just like me,
Maybe they too have a gruesome story to tell
Like PVC had to tell this other day;
“Oh! the ignorant Humans!
Why aren’t you saving yourselves from me?
Don’t you care about your future?
The future of you and your progeny…”
I wish you would have kept us away from your surroundings
Instead of letting I and my specie get all messed up with each other.
I myself have been through a lot,
Be it getting trapped in cluster of spikes
Or being wrapped up around the branch of a tree!
I’ve floated in the drains, muffled over cans and ducts
Just to become the culprit of everything filthy!
I am that tramp, who keeps wandering constantly,
Rotting through rivers and pools,
Ending up spreading pollution everywhere,
You ask me where I’ll be found,
I am Omnipresent I say!
Flying, crashing through nowhere
Hoping for some day ‘someone’ will come,
And take me to my ‘appropriate disposal’
Please embrace me, love me, care me
Help me to reach – ‘my final destination’
Take me where I belong and save your Habitat,
Save your mother, Oh human,
Save your nature, Save ‘mother earth’


मैं एक पन्नी हूँ और भटक रही हूँ यहाँ से वहाँ,

वैसे ही जैसे मेरे ‘प्लास्टिक’ परिवार के बाकी सदस्य,

फ़ैल रहे है  डगर-डगर और भटक रहे हैं नगर-नगर,

सह रहीं हूँ  मैं लोगों कि बेदर्दी जो मुझे देखके मुंह फेर लेते हैं,

कोई आए, उठाये मुझे, और ले जाए मुझे मेरे सही मक़ाम तक,

मुझे भी कोई गले से लगाये और प्यार से पूछे के ‘तेरा हाल क्या है’

मेरे और भी भाई-बहन हैं जो मेरी तरह ही दर दर कि ठोकरें खा रहें हैं,

कल ‘पीवीसी’(PVC)  सुना रहा था अपनी दर्द भरी दास्तान,

क्यूं नहीं बचाते लोग मुझसे अपनी जान,

क्या अपने बच्चों की और भविष्य कि भी चिंता नहीं हैं इंसान को,

जो हमें सहेज कर,  कर दे अलग, और रखे साफ़ अपने घर-परिसर,

कितनी निर्दयता से लोग हमें मिला देते हैं एक दूसरे के साथ,

कभी मैं काँटों में फस जाऊं , कभी किसी पेड़ कि टहनी से लिपट जाऊं,

कभी नालों में बह जाऊं और अटक जाऊं किसी ‘डिब्बे’ या ‘पीपे’ के मुहाने पे,

कभी पानी पे तैरती रहूँ यूँही और बन जाऊं कारण गन्दगी का,

या फिर सडती रहूँ नदी-ताल-तलैया की सतह पर और प्रदूषित कर दूं सब जल,

आज कल तो आप जहां भी देखोगे मुझे हर जगह पर पाओगे ,

खेत-खालिहनोंमें-अपने आसपास के परिसर में, अत्र-तत्र-सर्वत्र- मैं ही मैं हूँ,

यूँही उड़ते-फिरते, गिरते-पड़ते कट रहा हैं सफर – मंजिल की नहीं खबर,

मुझे अपना लो, मुझे चाहो – मुझे समझो, मुझसे प्यार करो,

पहुंचा कर मुझे मेरे ‘मोक्ष’ तक, बचालो अपनी ‘वसुंधरा’ को,

कर रक्षण ‘पर्यावरण’ का, निभाओ ‘फ़र्ज़’ अपने ‘इंसान’ होने का !

Sustain with Nature

on Environment day… 5th June, 2009

I believe in permanent change which can be achieved
through people’s minds, and mind power

Let our minds be ‘ignited’
as the ‘lightening thunder’ and ‘pure’ as a ‘morning dew’,

Let ourselves be disciplined
as the ‘day-night cycle’,

Let our attitude be positive as the
‘river flows’ , let our acts ‘shine’ as the ’bright sun’,

Let us build our ‘character’
as ‘clean’ as we would like the ‘environment’ to be,

Let we Become ‘sincere’, ‘religious ’,‘impartial’, ‘judicious’ and
‘bountiful’ and ‘equal’ to all  as the ‘NATURE’ is,

Let us be ‘ natural’ as the ‘Nature’

Let We remain behind like the ‘soothing breeze’ and
‘our Memories’ be cherished as the ‘fragrance of flowers’… Forever…
…and No ‘green house effect’ ever ‘Suppress’
our commitments towards the ‘environment’- We live in,

Let we raise a ‘global warning’ for ‘change’ before the
‘climate-Change’ threatens our ‘survival’.

‘polluted minds’ create ‘contaminated character’ and ‘hazardous culture’
and increase the ‘societal garbage’
which percolates to generations and ‘Generations’
pay the price through ‘chronic situations’


Let the ‘pure’ minds come together to ‘preserve the Nature’
