Earth Hour and its utility


Since today is the Earth Hour day from 8.30-9.30pm and the lights have to be out, i take it that you are all going to comply, you have to, its about protecting our environment, and yes even an hour of power saving helps. so while you do humanity a favor here are 5 things you can do to kill time ...
1~ Go for a walk, alone or with your loved ones, walking in the dark can be fun..
2~ arrange for a candle light dinner for the loved one.. or if you are single why not have dinner with friends and family?
3~play old fashioned games like ludo or carom, or spend quality time with family, talking over tea or snacks

4~why not take a power nap?one feels refreshed after a nap.. really helps trust me..
or
if you are in a relationship, sneak in those kisses now and then,
mind you don't blame me if you get caught. :)
5~ if you have mosquitoes at your place learn to kill them in one whack!!, it can be fun!! or you could think....
dont ask me about what?
ab kya main soch ne ka kaam bhi kar doon..alsi kahi kay!

P.S-Sorry i couldn't think of a better 'things to do'. im too tired and sleepy for words, i have been up since 4 this morning!! and i have to wake up at four again!! :(

P.S 2- thanks Ria for passing on the information about Earth Day!!

Earth Hour, it's a fantastic initiative. Even one hour of saving power by every household there is, can save an unimaginable amount of energy. Really nice of you to share, reminded me of it too :)

Nice blog buddy. Keep up the good work. Hey, by the way, I came across this new website. www.indianewsupdates.com. It looks cool. What do you think?

Dhanya said...

Hey Sweets! Thanks a lot for reminding me... I actually followed it last year... looking forward to the power nap this time around too ;) 'Mosquito smashing' is a very good alternative btw :D

I religiously, switch off all the switches wherever I see them on unnecessarily. And now, I have started to close the tap while brushing my teeth for the environment.

Yes, I am very careless with water. And I am guilty. Working towards saving more water.

Kisses.
