The clarion call to save the environment is something we come across every day in our lives—though we may not act on it, we do see, smell, hear, and sense its immediate relevance. This year’s environment day theme “connecting people to nature” encourages people to go outdoors and connect with nature—by going for a short hike, sitting by a lake, a stroll in the park and so on. Needless to say, this should surely spark a connection between us and the environment. However, rather than this possibility of connecting with nature and embracing its beauty, what we intend to underline is the connection that already exists between us and the environment. This article is an ethnographic account of what we observed and gathered from our fieldwork; we do not intend to analyse the issue.
