Aim is to show beauty of Nature from which people are getting farther and farther in pursuit of their worldly desires resulting in neglect of this beautiful place. Message is that we should love and protect Nature, not abuse it. Humans should rise over and above their petty differences and join hands to protect  this wonderful place, our home. This is the only home we have.
