The environment is the natural surroundings that we live in. In ancient times people protected and respected the environment. We can remind the Red Indian Leader, Siatale’s letter, as a piece of evidence to prove how much they sensitive to nature. But today, it has come under serious threats due to human activities. They have caused serious damages to the environment and it has affected badly on living things on Earth. Among the reasons affected for the disaster, deforestation, destroying wildlife, usage of harmful chemicals and artificial fertilizers, genetically modified crops, improper garbage disposal, letting the drains to flow into the waterways, poisonous smoke emissions, and illicit sand mining are at the spearhead.
Now it is high time to be aware and take remedial actions to get rid of this destruction. To control deforestation the government can implement rules and regulations more actively. The improvement of the awareness of the school children on planting trees is very important. They can be given fruit plants free to plant in the school premises and in their own gardens. Destroying of wildlife can be identified all over the world especially in developing countries. Endangered species are facing a challenge to survive their lives on the planet and the future generation will lose these creatures forever.
At present, farmers mostly think about the amount of profit they can earn but never get worried about the damage caused to the environment by the excess usage of harmful pesticides, weedicides, and other chemicals. Genetically modified plants have badly affected the ecosystem as well as the health of the people. By cultivating traditional crops the farmer could be able to get rid of this trap. Eco-friendly fertilizer is a good option for artificial fertilizers. We should think about a qualitative life, than the quantity we consume.
Improper garbage disposal is also a severe problem especially in urban areas of the country. It creates breeding grounds for harmful germs, flies, and mosquitos, and they spread dangerous diseases like dengue. Recycling is a good solution for this and the outputs can be used for agriculture and as raw materials. Refusing polythene or plastic is a good solution for this problem. Cloth or wooden containers and furniture can be introduced as a substitute.
By constructing drainage recycling plants the rivers and other waterways can be kept clean. The authorities can promote the people and organizations who engage in such environment-friendly projects. By controlling the emission of harmful gases from vehicles, factories, or power stations, global warming and an increase in seawater levels can be controlled. If we don’t actively contribute to this task will lose this word soon forever.
Sigiriya is one of Sri Lanka’s most popular tourist destinations. It isalso called Lion Rock or Lion Mountain, consisting of the ancient ruins of a fortress that was built in the late 5th century. The steep rock rises to an elevation of 349 meters above sea level and nearly180 meters above the surrounding plain. The water gardens, the frescoes, and the remains of the impregnable royal palace on the summit tell us the story of ancient glory. It was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1982 by UNESCO.
According to archaeological evidence, the stronghold was built by King Kashyapa ( reigned 477 – 495 BC), intending to safeguard against his enemies. He killed his father, King Dathusena, in 477 AD and seized the throne from his half-brother, Moggallana. To escape from the revenge, he left Anuradhapura, the capital city, and build the heavily fortified city of Sigiriya with thick walls, moats, and the palace-fortress on the top of the granite rock.
After the battle with Moggallana (495 BC), he took his own life by cutting his throat, since he did not have hope of winning. Then King Moggallana reinstated Anuradhapura as the capital and left Sigiriya for monks.
The entrance to the palace was shaped like a large lion’s head, with its front paws, and shoulders. The staircase ran up between the two front paws and into the mouth of the lion, and the rock was called the Lion Rock or Sigiri (Singha=lion, giri=rock). Today, the remains of the two paws can be seen and they create a picture of the original shape and the size of the sculpture.
There is a large part of the ancient city that has not been excavated and it is one of the most valuable historical monuments of Sri Lanka. Every year, thousands of tourists visit this ancient palace and fortress complex, to experience the archaeological importance and the scenic beauty.
