Shreyas Talpade: I have always been acutely conscious of one thing and that is water scarcity in Maharashtra. The images of distressed farmers and parched fields are hard to ignore. The environment is our biggest asset and without it our survival is impossible. It's unfortunate that we don't understand this simple fact. Start by doing a small thing - just pour the amount of water you want to drink into your glass. That's it. And see the change.
Neetu Chandra: We live in a country where environment consciousness is growing very very slowly. I wish it were different. I have a simple request to make - stop using the plastic bottle that you do. Make it glass or metal. One simple step you can take in your capacity because our refrain often is that how can one person make a change. Reverse that thought. Each one of us can take that baby step towards saving our environment.
