Hearts@work – Zenitex and Gateway Ladies Club, Surat, Celebrated World Environment Day 2016 In A Distinctive Way

Sunday, 5th June 2016, was World Environment Day. It has been celebrated since 1973 in order to raise the global awareness about the importance of the healthy and green environment in human lives, to solve the environmental issues by implementing some positive environmental actions as well as to make aware common public worldwide that everyone is responsible for saving his environment and not only somebody, government or organizations working for it.

We at Hearts@work a Zenitex Initiative are continuously working in this direction of Environmental Protection. Sunday, 5th June 2016 too, we celebrated the “World Environment Day” in a unique way. As pledged, we would be planting trees throughout the year wherever, we will find place for planting and people who are willing to take care of the trees for at least six months to one year until the young plants are strong enough to take care of themselves on their own.  To inaugurate the Campaign of “Clean India – Green India”, Hearts@work team led by Mr. Viral S. Desai, Founder of Hearts@work and CEO of Zenitex, along with Committee Members of Gateway Ladies Club, Surat, namely Mrs. Yashaswiniben Jariwala, Mrs. Jugesh Kohli and Mrs. Anju Sethi, visited “Vrundavan Ranchhoddas Popawala Children Home” in Surat. The beautiful campus of the Children Home was chosen as the venue of the inauguration of the campaign. There, along with the kids of the Children Home, 175 trees were planted. During the interaction, the children there were found to be very well mannered, energetic and passionate.

Since, children are the future and the future is for them, it was an apt location wherein, the kids got involved enthusiastically and wholeheartedly in the tree planting programme. Moreover, they pledged their support and promised that they will take care of these plants and see them grow in to full grown trees.

World Environment Day annual celebration campaign was started worldwide to address the huge environmental issues like wastage of food, deforestation, increasing global warming, extinction of fossil fuels, focusing on forest management, reducing greenhouse effects, promoting bio-fuels production by planting on degraded lands, use of hydro-power to enhance electricity production, encourage common public to use solar energy and production through solar sources, developing new drainage systems and promoting mangroves restoration in order to get prevented from flooding and erosion and other ways of environmental protection.

It is celebrated to spread awareness amongst common public about the environmental issues, encourage common people from different society and communities to actively participate and become an active agent in developing environmental safety measures, let them know that community is very essential to inhibit negative changes towards the environmental issues and encourage people to make their nearby surroundings safe and clean to enjoy safer, clean and more prosperous future.

We at Hearts@work and Zenitex, call upon all responsible citizens to come and “Join us to a true commitment to our environment – Join us in the serenity of leaving to our children a planet in equilibrium” – “Join the race to make the world a better place”.

A few refreshing and encouraging quotes for all readers to change their modes to Action Mode:

  • “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”. – Margaret Mead
  • “We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment”. – Margaret Mead
  • “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed”. – Mahatma Gandhi
  • “What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another”. – Mahatma Gandhi

Women’s Day Message by Viral Desai, CEO – Zenitex

Ode to Women on Womens Day

International Women’s Day is celebrated the world over, every year on the 8th day of March. It celebrates womanhood and pays tribute to the indomitable spirit of women across the globe.

The 2016 theme for International Women’s Day is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality”. The United Nations is encouraging the world to envision a world where women and girls can have the freedom and ease of choice to participate in politics, get an education, have an income, and — an area I hold dear to my heart — live in a society free from violence and discrimination.

The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries it has the same status as of Mother’s Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.

Investing in Women is Ensuring Prosperity :
When you empower a woman, you elevate her community. This is the core concept behind many of the public diplomacy efforts: a ripple effect occurs when we believe in women and invest in their potential. By providing women entrepreneurs access to training, mentors, and networks, we directly supports the goals of advancing women’s efforts to become financially independent through entrepreneurship and utilize their economic strength to improve their communities around the world.

Every day, we read about women and girls around the world who are victims of heinous violence. From Iraqi women abducted and enslaved by ISIS to Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped and forced into marriage to a Girl Students in India gang raped and tortured to death, these tragedies seem to belong to medieval times. We should remember that even they are somebody’s daughter, sister, wife or mother and it can be anybody.

I’d like to propose a different headline, a different narrative. While their work may not always make the front pages, women are confronting our most pressing global issues. At great personal risk, they are fighting poverty, discrimination, and violence so that their families, communities, and countries can have better lives.

As an entrepreneur I see the power of women every day in every place that I visit – they are creating opportunities for the next generations of women.

On Women’s day I pay my tributes to Women around the world and in India who work to advance peace, security, and gender equality. And their individual stories represent the positive impact that empowered women can make everywhere.

So, we will not retreat in the face of those who seek to diminish or banish women and girls to the margins of society. We do not accept rape as a by-product of conflict or indifferences. We will not accept the forced marriage of girls as a social norm. And we will not forget those who have been or are being held against their will. Instead, we honour them for the courage they show in the face of brutality and intimidation.

In February, World Bank had asked in a poll what do you wish for International Women’s Day? Answers were 42% want to see gender equality. 31% said they wanted women’s empowerment, and 27% wished for women’s human rights.

I think all three issues are critical — primarily because they can’t stand alone. A woman with rights is one who feels empowered to compete in an equal world.

As Gandhiji said : “Intellectually, mentally, and spiritually, a woman is equivalent to a man and she can participate in every activity”.

In Modern Indian society women are playing stellar roles. More importantly their role in family building, society development is stupendous. Indian woman is emerging out of their conventional role, realizing their unlimited potential and have begun to take major role in all walks of life. If India is to be a superpower, then surely we need a significant contribution from these great women.

I personally feel that a woman is intelligent, understanding, beautiful, gentle, motherly and powerful. What can be more powerful than Nature and hence, even Nature is lovingly addressed as Mother Nature. Because it is a Woman who brings life. She is the chosen one by the creator to bring life in to this world.

While concluding this message, I would like to share with you all, two small videos showing how much does a woman sacrifice and thus she truly deserves respect, it is in Hindi titled “Woman’s Respect”. And for our friends in the Middle-East, we have made a similar video with the title in Arabic meaning “Girl is Happiness” in Arabic.
