Stop Destroying Natural Beauty


If you see beautiful girls chewing canes
And scattering its fibers everywhere
Tell to them, Beautiful Ladies,
Will n’t you love to live in an environment
As beautiful as yours?
They will swallow that and will stop.

If you see a poacher who is killing an elephant
For no other reason than to get his tusks
Tell him, ‘My brother, suppose the elephant
kill you to extract your teeth
Will this be acceptable to you?
He will swallow that and will stop.

If you meet a charcoal burner
Who’d cut down all the trees
Tell him, ‘Assuming somebody burnt
your body to ashes
Will this be pleasing to you?
He will swallow that and will stop.

If you find a farmer who is diverting a river
Pose a question to him, ‘Why not go
and grow crops in the ocean?
He will swallow that and will stop.

If you meet a herds boy who is making the land bald
By overgrazing his livestock
Tell him, ‘Supposing the lions overfeed
on meat from your cattle and sheep,
Will this be a fortune for you?

If you see people defiling and destroying our earth
Ask them, ‘When are you leaving for Venus?
They will look at you ashamedly and they will stop.
