Actress Dia Mirza has spoken about Uttarakhand battling 40 active forest fires. The fires have already impacted forests across the regions and is said to be the worst since 2016. “I once quoted Baba Dioum, a Senegalese forestry engineer in a blog, the gist of which was that in the end we will conserve only what we love. Do we love our forests enough to protect them is a question that niggles at me every time such devastation takes place in Uttarakhand. Uttarakhand is the birthplace of the Ganga and its forests feed many important river systems that are the life source of millions,” said Dia. Dia Mirza Handles A Curious Fan Who Questioned Her About Her Early Pregnancy in the Most Boss Way Possible!

She adds: “This is a state with 71 per cent forest cover, over 743 bird species, 102 mammals, 72 species of reptiles and 439 species of butterflies. This is also home to an estimated 340 wild tigers in two nature parks — Rajaji National Park and Corbett. So, this state literally cradles our future. To see it go up in flames like this repeatedly is very painful because I have been to these forests and have absorbed their serenity and majesty.” The actress says that everyone needs to be aware of what this devastation can to. Dia Mirza Announces Pregnancy: Jacqueline Fernandez, Malaika Arora and Others Shower Love on the Actress!

“There is also neglect and a lack of awareness that precipitates the intensity of such a crisis. Our natural resource management needs to be better. As every person I spoke to in Uttarakhand once told me, we need to be more aware of the reasons that cause deforestation, pollution of the rivers, illegal mining and soil erosion. We have to understand how interdependent the human existence and mother nature are. Rivers will dry up if the forests that feed them are not protected. It will take the active participation of public and private partnership to secure our natural resources,” she says. Meanwhile, the actress is producing a series of short films that will expand the significance of the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

Meghan Markle Watched Prince Philip's Funeral From California Home

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, who could not attend Prince Philip’s funeral service held at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday due to medical reasons, sent a note and personalized wreath of flowers to be laid at his services. According to US Weekly, the wreath was designed by Willow Crossley, who also arranged the flowers for the nighttime reception of Meghan, at her wedding with Prince Harry in 2018 at Windsor Home Park. Crossley, had also created the arrangements for their 23-month-old son Archie’s christening. Meghan Markle Watched Prince Philip’s Funeral From California Home.

The wreath was a special tribute from Meghan as the flowers were picked from Crossley’s personal garden, made up of Eryngium to represent the Royal Marines and Acanthus mollis, the national flower of Greece, the country in which the Duke of Edinburgh was born. US Weekly reported that campanula, rosemary, lavenders and roses were also included in the wreath, representing gratitude, devotion and everlasting love. Roses were added to honour June, the month Prince Philip was born. Heart Of Invictus: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Announce Their First Ever Netflix Series.

According to reports, the duchess attended the funeral service from home and sent handwritten notes expressing her condolences to the family. The Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9 at age 99. Shortly after his death, Prince Harry, returned to the UK for the first time since stepping back from his royal duties and moving to California in March 2020. “My grandfather was a man of service, honour and great humour. He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm–and also because you never knew what he might say next,” Harry said in a social media statement, on April 12.

“He will be remembered as the longest-reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke. But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ’til the end.”

Addressing his grandfather as a “rock” to Queen Elizabeth II, who he was married to for 73 years, he also added, “You will be sorely missed, but always remembered — by the nation and the world. Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.” On the other hand, Meghan, who is currently expecting her second child with Harry this summer, was advised by doctors not to travel to London.
