And, the breath of fresh air that Covid brought along, courtesy the lockdown, has shown us how critical the situation is. I believe celebrities who practise good deeds like saving water, avoiding plastic and planting trees lead by the example for their fans to follow. I was not very old when I first learnt about global warming, but I was old enough to understand that it had long-term effects. So, my mother and I started planting trees on my birthday every year.
