[19/52] The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
I could not resist reading yet another children book of Dr Seuss. I am glad I picked up The Lorax.
The Lorax has a profound message told in simplest form. Rapid consumption of natural resources to bring products to market faster is a wide spread today. Most often today, Marketing drives a demand and hence production. It’s not a big surprise we end up buying stuff we don’t need.
The cutting down of Truffula trees made me realise, how costly organic vegetable and fruits have become. The commercially grown or “manufactured” vegetables and fruits are much cheaper!
If every child read this book multiple times during their childhood in India at least, I am sure many would have grown to handle large scale problems such as shown in this book.
