I was reading through my old Calvin and Hobbes collection when this particular strip held my attention. I read through it again and it hit like a punch in my face.
One, it speaks against all the rude and careless attitude of humans towards the nature and second, it speaks for the entire non-human earth community through Hobbes, a Tiger and his species is on the verge of being eliminated from the face of earth (and directly or indirectly Humans are responsible for it).
What hurts more is the tiger speaking as a wounded warrior who fought valiantly for a cause and who is about to give up his life and existence for it. The last words of the icon and idol warrior, which will linger around always and would hit us deep somewhere in our conscience as long as we exist and even when we are about to perish.
On this environment day, let’s take an oath to change our ways, let’s take some corrective action before it is too late.
Let’s prove Hobbes wrong and add another graphic to this comic strip where Calvin gives a befitting reply to the accusation of Hobbes.
Let us go Green!!
