On the occasion of the World Environment Day, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has issued an appeal to the people to conserve the nature.

She wrote on her Facebook page: “Environment is the most important resource for life. We draw more, than give back to nature and environment. In the words of Tagore – “দিয়েছি যত নিয়েছি তার বেশি” (I have taken from you more than what I could give you).”

“To save our very existence, we need to save earth, trees, water, sea, river, all bodies and keep the air clean to prevent global warming. This is necessary for a sustainable environment,” Benerjee wrote.

The chief minister appealed to all to “strive towards this goal for our better tomorrow”.

With a photograph of hers where she is seen watering some plants, the message from Banerjee read: “Incidentally, today I am in the midst of (a) lush green forest cover at (the) Jaldapara National Park in North Bengal. The greeneries, captivating flora and fauna, beautiful elephants, rhinos, the fast flowing streams and above all, the warmth of the people around, have me spell-bound.”

The chief minister concluded the message with the information that she has two meetings on Thursday: One with the Tribal Advisory Council and the other with North Bengal Development Council. “Lastly, I will join a ‘Tree Plantation’ programme at Hollong,” she wrote.

“সবুজ প্রকৃতি আমাদের মা।

প্রকৃতির আঁচলে ভরা থাক আকাশ, বাতাস, নদী, সমুদ্র, সূর্য, চন্দ্র, তারা।
ভরা থাক স্মৃতি সুধায় পরিবেশ রক্ষার সবুজ আনন্দ ধারা।

সবুজ বাঁচুক, সবুজ থাকুক, সবুজ ধ্বংস করো না।

এ পৃথিবী তোমার, আমা্‌র সবার।

প্রকৃতি নষ্ট করো না।”

With the words above, Mamata Banerjee tried her had at poetry. It translates to: “The gree nature is our mother/ Let the sky, winds, rivers, oceans, sun, moon and stars fill the nature’s embrace/ Let the heady memories be filled with the happiness derived from of the greenery/ Let the greens survive, let the greens stay; do not destroy the greens/ This world belongs to us all/ Do not destruct the nature.”
