Terichmir—Crown of the Hindukush

O chief of mountains, standing tall,
Your grace and poise entices all,
Your snowy roof, lost in the mist,
A site one simply can't resist,
You are but like a fantasy,
A source of sheer felicity,
Although your beauty captivates,
Your mightiness intimidates,
As legend tells the tales of yore,
Of fairies, devils, beasts and more,
That spook away who so decides,
To hike upon the rocky heights,
An enchantress thou art to thee,
Like la belle dame sans merci,
With haunting charm, you hypnotize,
You are a traveller's paradise,
Peaks camouflaged in white ambush,

A Question of Breathing!!

With growing level of carbon in the air and the disappearing greenery related to rapid deforestation, clean oxygen could be a precious commodity in the market, the price of which will continue to increase with the ever increasing level of carbon in the atmosphere.

Birds Need Our Help!

Birds are nature's beauty. They have positive role to play in the ecosystem. For our own well-being, we have to protect birds and the rest of the living organisms. It is unfortunate that some important bird species are about to disappear because of pesticides or merciless hunting that has already had negative impacts on our ecology and natural biodiversity. What about the caterpillars that have been destroying hawthorne and apple trees for the last more than fifteen years?
