If we believe, we can

During my recent tour to the US I had the chance to visit the famous Niagara Falls. It was a beautiful sight! However, what I found more interesting was the movie that was shown just before the visitors enter the Cave of the Winds — a passage that takes you close to the “bridal veil” (falls). I was dumbstruck to see (in the movie) that the site of the Niagara Falls was once a private industrial land where several factories were pushing their waste into a bunch of natural waterfalls in the area, choking the water bodies and killing the entire flora and fauna in the process.

Today, the Niagara Falls that we see are a super cool example of what human beings can do, if they unite towards common good. Seeing the plight of a natural beauty and resource, a bunch of thought leaders came together and started a movement to remove the factories. Soon people came together to dwell on how the site could be revived, and then what we see today is an artist’s impression that was turned into reality after much engineering and restructuring on site.

And now the same site is home to one of the world’s most spectacular waterfalls! It shows the power of human will, belief, and determination. Loved it!
