The normal functioning of the biosphere depends on the endless interaction among animals, plants and microorganisms. Wildlife should “thrive” so that we can “survive”. A famous Kashmiri saint (Shaikh ul Alam) has said,
“Ann Poshi Teli Yeli Wann Poshi (meaning – Food lasts as long as forests last)”.
Ches behith adris beithis Jhelumus (I sit here on the banks of the river); Kadlay taar dei Na Kahn Jhelumus (Will someone help me cross?); Naaive hundh paile chu aaivul Jhelumus (My boat is fragile); Khotsan ches naaive manz Jhelumus (And I fear to cross alone) “Songwriter; Mhd. Muneem Nazir”
