I Celebrate!

I am celebrating Eid Ul Fitr, after 29 days of Ramadhan and fasting. Unexpectedly, and giving me, more to celebrate for - is the gift from the Nobel Foundation! They have just awarded this year's Peace Price to Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Though I some times disagree with the way the Nobel Prices are awarded, I find it very comforting and encouraging, that such a reputable and very highly regarded body, has the wisdom and foresight to reach such a decision - very much unlike our many 'leaders' and politicians. The Peace Price to Gore and the IPPC, like the 2004 one awarded to Wangari Maathai - will make more people aware and responsible in saving our Planet and making it safer, cleaner and sustainable. Very hopefully: World 'leaders' and politicians too, will wake up.

At the same time: each and every one of us, in however small a way it may seem, can help in saving our Planet!
