and the question is WHEN ARE YOU ACCEPTING THE CHALLENGE ? .

Igniting Minds ‘Hara hai toh bhara hai’ A Green India Challenge towards Greener World has taken upon itself to address causes that are socially relevant and tries to mobilise mass participation of the people to make the society a better place to live in.

What is Igniting Minds doing Now?

A study has revealed that a person on an average consumes 284.7 kgs of Oxygen per year. On an average, a tree produces 100 kgs. of Oxygen per year. It means that on an average a person consumes Oxygen produced by three trees in a year.

The forest cover of the earth today is only 31% of our earth. The loss of forest is 5.2 million hectares per year, in the name of urbanisation. The grim fact is that slowly but surely, we are choking ourselves and the life on earth to extinction.

We, at Igniting Minds, have decided to restore and revive the green cover by planting trees all across the nation. To make it an interesting and social activity, we have come up with the concept of “GREEN INDIA CHALLENGE” We have coined a Slogan, ‘Hara hai toh bhara hai’ to take it forward and make it viral.

The iconic leader, former President of India, the missile man, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam’s Birth anniversary falls on 15th October. As a fitting tribute to that great soul, who strived for the humanity in general and the people of our nation in particular, we at Igniting Minds have launched this global movement on 3rd June 2018 in Hyderabad and dedicate it to the visionary who strived for the betterment of humanity.

What is the challenge?

First, you accept Igniting Minds’ Hara hai toh Bhara hai, Green India challenge of planting 3 trees. Then, you nurture them for the next 3 years, geotag and post the photographs of the same.http://www.ignitingminds.co.in/igm-login.php

As a next step, you pass on the challenge to 3 others, who take it further and the chain continues. It is that simple.

The challenge was initiated one year ago ( 3rd June 18) and has had a cascading effect. It has not only spread across 27 states of India to date, but, has also gone viral globally with people across the globe accepting and spreading the challenge in over 35 countries till the last reports came in Few names and countries :

1). Cristina Xavier Martins, Climate Activist, From Brazil.

and more 30 countries .. and increasing every hour.

This is a very encouraging sign and only goes to show that a good humanitarian cause gets worldwide acceptance despite the geographical demarcations.

Till date, the 'Hara Hai Toh Bhara Hai' Green India Challenge has received the support of the Vice President of India, His Excellency Shri Venkaiah Naidu ji, His Excellency Shri.E S L Narasimhan, Governover of Telangana, Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar, Padma Bhushan Pullela Gopichand, Padma Bhushan Saina Nehwal, Padma Bhushan Chiranjeevi, the Forest Man of India Padma Shri Jadav Payeng, Padma Shri PV Sindhu, Padma Shri VVS Laxman, and many other prominent citizens.

Former Minister for IT, Municipal Admin. & Urban Development, Industries & Commerce, Textiles & NRI Affairs, Shri. K. T. Ramarao accepted the challenge and planted three saplings and geotagged them. He, in turn, challenged United States Counsel General in Hyderabad, Ms. Katherine B. Hadda, Cricket God Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Rajdeep Sardesai, and Matinee idol, Mahesh Babu.

The United States Counsel General in Hyderabad, Ms. Katherine B. Hadda accepted the challenge, planted the saplings, tagged the same and passed on the challenge to Saina Mirza, Indian film Actor- Mohan Babu and other celebrities. It is spreading by the minute and the list of participants is growing and spreading like wildfire.

Hara hai Toh Bhara Hai is a fun way of reversing the damage caused by deforestation. Igniting Minds appeals to one and all to take this challenge forward

The bottom line is to make a Green India and a Greener Earth.
