... Life can Change Anytime
Once upon a time there was a colony named Som Vihar. It had everything, every facility a man could need to lead a comfortable life. It had a swimming pool, a doctor, a barber and playing area for children. It was a huge colony and it also had a school inside its campus. It was an army colony so all the Generals, Colonels and others had started living here after their retirement. The buildings were till the ninth floor. Some of the buildings had few offices too. No one went outside the colony because it had everything they needed. All the children, their parents and their grandparents lived happily inside the campus of Som Vihar.
Over the years a lot of development happened in Som Vihar. Many trees were cut and ground cleared for more buildings to be constructed. Soon the last few trees left in the garden were also cut because they wanted to add a science lab for the scientists and a Police Station. One year later everything was built.
Now no more trees were left in the colony. The air got polluted and it was difficult to step out of the houses. The children had difficulty going to school. People started to complain about this but no one listened. There was no rainfall and the grass and the shrubs all dried up. The people who were staying on rent left the colony. Some of my friends also had to shift. No one was happy because of the polluted environment.
All the residents signed a petition to the government asking for help, but no one listened to their appeal. They also went to the Chief Minister but he also declined to help them. Few more years passed and more people left the colony. The temperature inside the colony’s campus rose, and even with powerful air conditioners the heat was unbearable.
Finally, the people realised their mistake and planted more trees. Eco-friendly measures like rain water harvesting and use of clean energy from solar power panels were installed. Soon, the environment was back to normal and everyone who had left, returned to this colony and lived happily ever after!
