Earth Day Gifts / February 23, 2019 / Rachel Gates
This festival is called Pathare Pravu meaning Mother s Day. The festival follows the legend of a mother whose children never used to live beyond the first year of their birth. The Pathare Pravu Mother s Day celebration is ancient in nature and thousands of years older than the present US and international culture of celebrating. There was also the culture of Mata Tirtha Aunshi (Mother s Pilgrimage Fortnight) in North Eastern India where in April in the Krishna Paksha of Baisakh month pilgrimage is made to Mata Kunda to worship living mothers and mothers who have left the earth.
The proclamation also stated that participants would celebrate an international Earth Day to create a single community and embrace Earth s gifts. The proclamation was endorsed by well-known people and leaders around the world: astronaut Buzz Aldrin anthropologist Margaret Mead inventor-scientist Buckminister Fuller Japanese environmental scientist Y. Fukushima American senators U.N. President S.O. Adebo and UN Secretary-General Thant. In April of 1970 the world celebrated another Earth Day event. The April 22nd event also began as a way to spread awareness of environmental issues. American Senator and conservationist Gaylord Nelson had actively toured the U.S. in the mid 1960 s with an environmental awareness agenda.
Earth Day Birthday provides the 20th century grassroots effort in reaching eco-friendly people and making an impact on the planet. Attending an Earth Day symposium would be tiring so people need some energy to keep up stay awake and energized to absorb the important matters that are being discussed in that said event. If you would notice organizers of such events are providing some food for people to munch in and it depends the time of the day if it would be apt for lunch snacks or dinner. But usually organizer is serving snacks like finger food and energy bars or anything that is related to the theme of the event while others rely on their sponsors for food.
