2020 hasn’t been a pleasing year thus far for the world. The coronavirus pandemic has got most countries on their knees and there’s no running away from their miseries. The economy in most parts of the globe have threatened to go into the doldrums. The death tolls are increasing at the rate of knots as the world waits anxiously in search for a vaccine, hoping for some relief, if not a lot.
Amidst the chaos, cyclones have also wreaked havoc. A couple of weeks ago, it was Amphan that unfolded mayhem in West Bengal and Odisha. Then a couple of days ago, it was the turn of Nisarga to take down Mumbai. It goes without saying that 2020 will be deemed as one of the darkest years in the history of mankind. The worst part is that around seven months remain this year.
Mild earthquakes haven’t made things any easier for people either. Even as Mother Nature heals, on June 5, the counties celebrated ‘World Environment Day’. On the special day, Kings XI Punjab, the Indian Premier League team dropped a tweet, making people aware of the need to save the world.
“Don’t be insensitive towards the environment. This #WorldEnvironmentDay, take a pledge to save the world.,” KXIP’s tweet read.
