Earth hour!!

March 29, 2009

Earth Hour on 28th March 2009 from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm IST

People all over the world apparently united to switch off their lights in a show of unity to conserve power. Apart from the serious note of if this gesture is enough to really conserve power or make people take it seriously, there was a funny sms going on saying that the power spent on advertising earth hour would have exceeded the savings. ๐Ÿ˜€

I did not switch off. In Australia where this idea originated it is not definitely scorching summer which is what it is in Chennai. Any how, my momย  is too scared that we are in a thief prone area.

May be if I had been in campus, my hostel junta(people) would have crowded each room till they switched off light.

Also check out the comments on earth hour home page. Atleast some people in the twitter world at least dont seem to have taken it very seriously ๐Ÿ˜€

    How dare you didn’t ?
    I have come up with a “Nature Saving” idea, and you have no right but to share the ‘moral high-stage’ with me, without thinking any further. If you try finding fault with my idea and my way of propaganda, it obviously means you are socially irresponsible, and your responsibility is not in saving nature, but in being with (in fact, obeying) me.

    like what Dr. Radhakrishnan says “It is not God that is worshipped but the group or authority that claims to speak in His name. Sin becomes disobedience to authority not violation of integrity.”
