Environmentalists T. Srinivasa Rao and R. Gnanasekaran from New Delhi, India, who are on their seventh globe-trotting expedition to raise awareness on global warming, believe in the importance of giving back. “One truth is that the more you give, the more you get in return.
“And the more you give to the earth, the more the earth will give back to you,” said Srinivasa, 48.

These guys are cool, they travelled across Europe and spent most of their time with councillors and state leaders AND children to “sow the seeds of going green”.
They've already visited Kuala Lumpur and USJ to work with communities and neighbourhoods to help protect Mother Earth. 
Gnanasekaran, 47, said being green was not just about contributing money but also one’s time and talents. “Malaysia is a beautiful nation blessed with abundance of sunlight and this natural resource can be turned into solar energy.
“Paying utility bills is absolutely unnecessary. Making the solar panels will be cost-effective if all houses are fitted with it,” he said.
Gnanasekaran said people were using fossil fuel that polluted the air and this led to global warming and depleted non-renewable resources.
“We want developed countries like the United States to support developing nations with financial grants to develop renewable-energy projects to improve the environment,” he said.
Srinivasa and Gnanasekaran, both electrical engineers, started their global awareness campaign in 1986 with their first expedition on bicycle covering 68,000km. They arrived in Mexico last month (December) for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in December. Good stuff.

  1. Very cool! My fellow Indians bein' green! Though I'm not surprised, but it was nice to read about. Thanks!

  2. It is inspiring to know; that they have the 'energy' to take on global powers for helping the earth is great, especially as reports claim fuels will be out within a century (or two). MashaAllah.

  3. I like these two! =D
