Forze Di Natura
(1978-1982) deals with natural disasters and their effects on human beings.
May 2, 2021 - At the height of India's Pandemic Crisis
Yesterday, I invited Heidi Cuppari, Founder & Executive Director of Dream Tank to be a guest speaker at my Indian School of Natural & Spiritual Sciences.
During her lecture she shared a story about her father Pasquale Cuppari, a famous multi-media artist and humanist who was inspired in 2006 to paint two images (Oxygen Train, Water Train).
He was inspired by seeing the water trains arrive in India 2006 when there was a severe shortage of fresh water supply. The second painting (with the white round shapes around the train) was created without a title at that time. Pasquale and Heidi recently realised that it was meant to represent the Oxygen trains which have commenced to supply emergency oxygen to the people of India.
Their story touched me deeply and I thought of Mahatma Gandhi's quote:
“The earth, the air, the land and the water are not an inheritance from our forefathers but on loan from our children. So, we have to hand over to them at least as it was handed over to us.”
Take a moment to reflect on how you are using Mother Nature’s natural resources. We must respect what’s on loan to us, share our resources and care for our surroundings. What is in Mother Nature is in us. What legacy do you wish to leave for those yet to come on the Earth?
