Today, Earth is not in the happiest places as the Novel Coronavirus has taken over control. Due to the COVID-19 scare, many people are getting severely affected while many are even losing their lives. However, on Earth Day, actor Janhvi Kapoor penned a beautiful letter, apologising to the blue planet for not valuing it more and for taking it for granted. She says sorry to Earth for being callous about the gift to roam freely and to abuse ‘our home’. Sharing the letter, Kapoor posted some picturesque snaps of herself on her feed, presumably from her previous vacation in the Maldives.
In one of the picture, Janhvi is seen posing against the backdrop of a beautiful ocean and sunset. The pictures were backed with her heart-touching note that read, “I’m sorry for every time I didn’t value what you’ve given us. I’m sorry for every second I wasted forgetting to marvel at your beauty, for thinking you’d continue to envelop us with sunsets that melt into sunrises that we’d always have access to. Sorry for being callous about the gift to roam freely on this land and travel the skies and seas to discover newer possibilities and life and love. Sorry for thinking you’d never run out of patience waiting for us to care for you the way you’ve cared for us. For ignoring the tears you shed every time you watched us abuse ourselves, each other, and you- our home.”
Amid the COVID-19 surge, she hoped to roam freely and to breathe the same air without suspecting it of any disease. The Roohi actor also mentioned she prays to treat the earth better and to have a renewed earth. “I hope we earn back the right to roam freely, wander with abandon. Earn back the luxury to share our thoughts, our voices, our dreams and to realise them - in a tangible realm. The luxury to breathe the same air without suspecting it of a disease that might take our life. But amid this lesson that I know you’re teaching us; that I hope we’re close to having finally learnt- I learnt to live more freely and wholly than I ever have before. And I pray we make it through this, not just for me or the people of my country, or the world, but for the chance to make it up to you.”
“To treat you better than we have before, to treat each other and ourselves better than we have before. To be a renewed earth. One who’s beauty and life is only growing, never threatened. #happyearthday,” her note concluded.
