Mysuru, December 30:- “Environment should be protected and handed over to the next generations. It is the responsibility of everyone,” said environmentalist Varshini.
She was speaking after inaugurating children’s programme organised by Makkala Kala Sahitya Parishat at Rotary Hall on JLB Road here recently.
“If we carelessly use the natural resources, nothing will remain for the next generations. We can at least speak what we feel. But animals and birds can’t even do that. It is our responsibility to take care of them as well,” she said.
