This is great, but I wish they would ban gadhimali (festival ) where thousands of animals are slaughtered!

What a wonderful way to celebrate World Environment Day! I don't recall that there were any special rituals or celebrations in my country. If there were they weren'tt well publicised.

I've hugged a lot of trees but that's the most people I've seen doing it at once, a lovely gesture for World Environment day, I'm sure the trees will share the message that they are loved by some of us at least.
