Earth Hour is on 25th March, Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature. Actors talk about how they would save electricity and how would they manage one hour without electricity
I am strictly against this idea of loving your earth, loving your habitat for 1 hour in the year and not caring about it for the rest of the 8759 hours! We made such resources for our USE and not ABUSE. I take the utmost pride in saying that I conserve electricity and by conserving I don’t mean not using my appliances. To Conserve is to use only that much that is required. And please when not needed PLEASE TURN THE DAMN THING OFF! Wherever you are set your air-conditioning accordingly. Sitting in Mumbai in your living room with the a/c running in your room at 17 degrees is sheer wastage! Leaving your home with fans and lights on is a sheer wastage. Follow this every day and you don’t have to make such futile attempts to show how much you love your nature! I workout in the gym at that time and I don’t see myself doing anything different that day.
In that one hour I would love to be a child again play hide n seek or probably dark room with all my buddies and remember the good old times as a kid…that’ll be fun and especially that word called “thappa” when being caught was like music to the ears.
Let’s go solar! In today’s time from cooker to a transformer, everything is available in solar! That one hour will be a candle light date with my wife and son Krishay.
The highest consumers of electricity are AC’s, filament bulbs, ovens water geysers and old electrical equipment. So its better we keep a check on them when in use and remember to switch it off when not in use. I would love if there is no electricity for a whole night also. Just imagine the peace around and there would be absolute darkness and one could be with Mother Nature gazing at the moon and stars. I would just do nothing but enjoy the serenity till it lasts.
Aanushka Ramesh Khosla:
I am a big supporter of conservation of the earth and our environment. Electricity is also a resource and even in everyday life, I try to do my bit for saving electricity. Small things like switching lights off when you are not in a room, using natural daylight whenever possible, and keeping main power off at night go a long way in saving electricity. One person may not matter much, but we have to think that if all do it collectively it will create a huge impact. So I sincerely request everyone to do their bit to save not only electricity but also water and other resources as well. In that one hour, the best option will be to pass my time on my mobile or maybe go out for a drive with my friends. I will also broadcast messages to my contact list that all should shut their power off during that time!
The concept of Earth hour is good. Awareness towards right use of electricity is a must. A legend like Amitabh Bacchan supporting it is fantastic. I would sleep in that one hour when electricity is not there and will hear songs on my mobile too.
I support the Earth Hour day. Electricity need to be saved. I ensure I switch off all electric appliances and even fans and A.C. when no one is sitting in the living room of my house or even my room on the set.
