Thanks for shopping.

They say the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Borivli, Mumbai is a miracle. A biologist told us that it is dying. The boundaries of human intervention are moving inwards and in about 45 years this little forest in the heart of Mumbai will be dead.
Take a walk there if you can. If you see many alcohol bottles, plastic milk packets, thermocol plates, polythene bags on the way, collect them. Maybe someone is building a museum for the 'age of stupid' where these would fit in.
And remember, as the message someone lovingly left on the exposed root of a several hundred years old tree says: Have a fun time. Thanks for shopping.

'Age of Stupid.'
Haha!
And yes, only if people listened.
And, understood.
