Dia Mirza: Interact and have interaction with nature, in order that our kids do it too

In this world pushed by consumerism, everybody aspires to have extra however the fact is that much less is what ought to fulfill our wants, says Dia. Ask her how she manages to make her children Samaira and Avyaan perceive the ideas of sustainability and he or she says, “The simplest way is to walk the talk. Children learn by witnessing the choices we make. If I propagate the idea of waste management, I make sure I manage waste at home.My daughter is learning composting these days, my son is involved too. He sees how I put the khaad in our plants. He enjoys the benefits of having biodiversity just outside his home, he knows the names of birds, butterflies, plants and flowers. That’s possible only with the engagement that we facilitate as parents.”

Dia says children learn by watching elders. “We have to respond to nature and interact with it, for our children to do the same. I can’t think of a single person who’ll say that building a relationship with nature is harmful to them. When young children, who join us at beach clean-ups they observe the trash that the sea has thrown back. The packets of chips, chappals or synthetic clothes and they become mindful of the choices they are making. Children have more empathy than us,” she says.
