Nepal is land~locked, mountainous country and we are privileged with different assets like- marble, fossils and limestone among them forest is extraordinary and extravagant gorgeous greenery things, they are life to everyone because we breath pure air from them, they are just providing us fresh air without any cost but this generation has a different meaning for forest .
"हरियो वन नेपालको धन" (Green woodlands are Nepal's riches ´) Now, the circumstances are like this:- ("नरह्यो वन, नरह्यो धन ") is an utter proverb in Nepal.
Every individual is having a culture to cut down the jungles for a different purpose, here we are and failed to realize the bad impact that deforestation brings. Day by day the technology is rapidly progressing but in the name of technology, we are dead inside. •

"Forest Love "
When it rain bird sings with melody
When it is ruined by fire, bird whisper with kooky.
In the morning forest play with dew when it hit the Leafs of tress .
In the evening forest sleep with dusk when the sun is about down (Rayan)
Forest forest everywhere but not a single tree is under the plantation, it is devastating day by day with human urbanization. It is not the government, organization, club that will always suggest you to conserve the forest. Thus, Every individual has an equal responsibility to care of the forest. For the upcoming generation, we all have a huge responsibility to conserve the forest. Yeah, it makes a different sense but in days to come, this will definitely have a positive impact upon our environment. This planet is our home and trees are the pillars of our houses, we are part of nature, we need to take care the best of it.
Forest is not a forest , it is a First love as a Nature " Rayan "
