Television actress Shubhangi Atre, popular as Angoori bhabhi in the sitcom, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, feels Covid-19 reminds us that it is high time to understand the importance of the environment. She stressed upon the importance of keeping the environment pollution free.
"The Covid-19 emergence has unleashed some drastic consequences and revealed how disastrous the loss of the ecosystem can be. We cannot attain sustainable development goals in the absence of ecosystem restoration," she said.
She added, "Preventing the biodiversity loss is the key to our survival post the pandemic. If we need the old normal days back then we must change ourselves to new normal beings, who not only keep their homes clean, but also the environment pollution free."
"The environment provides us with life-sustaining resources, and it is essential to preserve and protect them. It is a home for many living species and maintains the balance in the ecosystem," said Shubhangi.
"There are many threats to the environment, such as deforestation and pollution, which affect not only us but all living beings around us. We have already created a lot of damage to nature, now it's high time to start being responsible," she added.
The actress had tested positive for Coronavirus in April this year. In an interview with ETimes, she revealed that the initial 4-5 days were quite difficult because of fever, fatigue, and no desire to even move. Her brother-in-law is a doctor so medication started early. She also shared that until last year she didn’t take COVID seriously until now that she has got it. She also said that the second wave is highly contagious and she has no idea where she contracted it from because she took all precautions.
She had added, "People still don’t understand the importance of wearing masks, following govt guidelines. I still see people socialising secretly. They don’t follow protocol and then blame the govt. Even within the industry there are people who dismiss the pandemic as something trivial."
