Blinded by Light

by Gowri Bhargav

“ Mom, why are many people protesting outside the tall building?” asked Judy

“ They are environmentalists. Compare the starlit sky with the light from the buildings. Which one looks brighter?”asked her Mom.

“ The buildings of course,” said Judy.

“ Yes! That’s the reason many of the migratory birds get confused with the directions and lose their path. A few even die by colliding against these tall, artificially lit buildings. The environmentalists are asking the building authorities to reduce the intensity of illumination to protect the birds,”exclaimed her Mom.

It’s high time humans realize the impact of their actions on nature.
