These are some memories from the time spent doing a road trip through West Bengal while we were filming #GangaTheSoulOfIndia. The actions of those who care little for the consequences of their destruction of our ecosystems is creating misery in the lives of the most vulnerable and unsuspecting. Climate change is real. As are all of the little children, women and people most impacted by the intensity and frequency of changing climate. The rising sea water levels has been making the sweet water saline in the Sundarbans. Now with #CycloneAmphan nearly 17,800 hectares of agricultural lands may have been damaged because of saline water from seas entering the farms. Lives, livelihoods and health are deeply connected to healthy natural ecosystems. #Covid19 is an outcome of our broken relationship with nature. While we are grappling with the starkness of misery this pandemic has caused in the lives of millions of our people, this cyclone hits us even harder. We MUST become more resolute about protecting natural ecosystems. We must build back better by recognizing nature as a solution to some of humanity’s most pressing challenges. Connect with @goonj @anshugoonj to help #WestBengal recover 💚 #ForNature #BuildBackBetter #ForPeopleForPlanet #SolidarityInAction #Odisha

Committed to driving the cause through a unified voice, celebs have come together with varied initiative encouraging the nation to stand with the people of the affected stares and contribute to re-build the states.

With more than 1.36 Crore people affected and 10.5 Lakh houses damaged, the cyclone shattered and unhinged the lives of many, resulting in an extensive loss. Electricity and telephone lines have been brought down, houses flattened and hundreds of full-grown trees uprooted across just West Bengal, there are many more in Odisha.

Let’s all try and help out these states and come together to bring them back on their feet.
