A young demonstrator

Amongst the many images and impressions at that I saw and experienced at the "Namma Raste, Namma Ooru" walk on Sunday, 9th November 2008, was the picture of this tiny tot;

Young demonstrator

She didn’t seem to be angry, or against anything; she made a peaceful statement that surely none of us can disagree with…and was calmly eating something that a tree gave her, too!

Surely, if a little one like her can come out to express her opinion, the rest of us can take heed and protect the trees we have left!

Update: What a coincidence! I shared this image with Hasiru Usiru…and learnt that this is Nandana, the daughter of Meera Iyer, who also writes for Citizen Matters! Small girl….small world! 🙂
