Tomorrow the 22nd of April 2018, the world will be celebrating earth day as usual. But why the hypocrisy. As humans we are slowly strangling our planet and killing off our wildlife just so we can post a selfie with a dead giraffe head, we choke our oceans with plastic and then wish everyone on social media “happy earth day”. This is what earth day is truly all about and till we come to terms with what we are doing to our beautiful planet, earth day will never be something to celebrate about.

This photograph went viral last year when an Indian photographer Avinash Lodhi clicked it on the spot. It appears that the mother monkey is crying out in pain at the lifeless baby who collapsed possibly out of the searing heat which is rising in India. Global warming is taking its toll on our wildlife. Thankfully the little guy was revived a bit later.
