Due to the ongoing pandemic and global lockdown, we can say that we all are confined to stay indoors since many days. Most of us are working from home and spending time on social media and television. But alongwith this, some of us are doing their bit for the nature and environment too. One such person is singer Hrishikesh Chury who has been busy with his love for nature. From day one of the lockdown till today he has been planting more than 200 saplings and trees in his personal garden.
Hrishikesh says, “While living in a concrete jungle like Mumbai, I feel blessed to have a garden in the heart of the city. This is our family home which is surrounded by various trees of mango, banana, papaya, coconut and few flowers. I get this love for nature through my parents who have planted various trees in their lifetime. From the first day of the lockdown, I had the opportunity to plant few saplings and with each day we kept on increasing. We also added around 150 vertical gardening pots. My motto and messageis simple, that Earth Day should be celebrated Every Day.”
International NGO Earth Day Network has recently announced Hrishikesh Chury as their India Ambassador along with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Zac Affron, Anil Kapoor and Anand Mahindra to name a few.
Also he has been a Grand Jury for many seasons on the popular musical shows like Saregamapa and Saregamapa Lil Champs.
