  • Nature is far beyond how we perceive it

Mother Nature has endowed us with various benefits. From cutting mountains to using the falling water, man has been able to manipulate the various forces of nature for his own good and benefits. And this demands respect and concern. Something that seems smaller need not necessarily be so. Take the waves for example; those that appear weaker can actually turn out to be giant and powerful beyond imagination. To understand their actual strength, you have to move close to them. The lesson here is that we have to closely understand a situation before learning how to deal with it.
