Bhumi Pednekar feels natural calamities such as the super cyclone Amphan are a warning for humanity to understand “what we have put our planet through”. “I have been seeing videos from Kolkata and Odisha for the last two days and it is heartbreaking It honestly is very scary. It went on for so many hours. I have seen posts with videos of the cyclone and it is so very unnerving Houses have been damaged, huge trees have been uprooted, it is a major loss to humankind and to animals,” said Bhumi.
“I think it’s high time that humanity understands what we have put our planet through. If you see in the last five years, the frequency of cyclones, the strength of cyclonic winds and typhoons are only going to keep increasing. Our cities are drying up, the earth is heating up at a crazy speed, Bhumi added.
Bhumi is actively working spread the word about the importance of preserving nature and about the imminent dangers of climate change. “today already the world is going through a major refugee crisis. In the next few years, we are going to have refugees because of climatic change. Millions and millions of people will be displaced irrespective of how rich or poor they are.
It doesn’t matter, in front of nature’s wrath we all are one. I really hope humanity wakes up. The planet is our home and we have to learn to concur with every single species that exist on earth.
Why do human beings feel their invincible? We share our planet with millions of other species but we feel haq Sirf Hama-ra hal (only we have a right on the planet) and that is ridiculous” Bhumi mentioned.
Bhumi feels it is her responsibility to spread the word and she is ready to do that whichever way she can. Asked, if she would like to take up movies that deliver a message regarding preserving nature Bhumi replied. ‘Absolutely! I will do whatever it takes to spread the message and bring about a change. This is something I am very passionate about. This is something I really believe in and it gives me sleepless.
