Happy New Year coconut lovers!
|This year has undoubtedly been full of contrasts in their full scale for us. We met with incredible opportunities that enabled us to move forward and at the same time faced challenges this year has posed to so many businesses all over the world. |
But we’re still here!
And as they say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
We are thankful for spending this year in good health and relatively good spirits 🙂
Spending the year of Covid pandemics in India has been well – full of contrasts as we stated earlier. But we’d like to remember the good moments too – soaking the warm light of early morning walks during the lockdown, moments of support and solidarity for each other and all the stillness that was suddenly visible in the empty streets that were before bustling with life and noises of all kinds.
Cause finally after all the rush and chaos – we had to stop.
And when you stop you are given an opportunity to look at things afresh and see it from a different perspective.
|Hence at the end of this all we’d like to encourage all of you to keep your creativity as means of achieving sanity. We might still need it in the year to come 😉 |
In the midst of all the craziness that Covid-19 imposed on our lives, let’s not forget the bigger picture either.
Corona virus has claimed 1.75 million lives globally and transformed lives of all of us. The way we battle this crisis has had very little consideration for the environment, quite on contrary.
In comparison; ambient air pollution accounts for an estimated 4.2 million deaths per year due to stroke, heart disease, lung cancer and chronic respiratory diseases. Around 91% of the world’s population lives in places where air quality levels exceed WHO limits.
However we don’t by any means want to underestimate the risks Covid-19 poses to humanity we would like to stress that there are other crises too with far larger impact to human race.
The solution to the climate change crisis is not in hands of medical researchers as the problems are very complex and demand changes on systemic levels. We don’t know much about the exact origin on Covid-19 virus although we know perfectly well where the air pollution stems from. We have been aware of this crisis for many decades yet it seems few of the governing bodies take it seriously enough to take immediate actions. Seeing how quickly we responded to the Covid crisis we can only hope that this will inspire all of us to act with more fervour upon the crisis of climate change.
At the end of all this we would sincerely like to wish you all the best in the year to come as we are coming stronger and more resilient! Thank you all for your support in 2020.
2021 here we come, fasten your seatbelts 🙂
