David Attenborough

An activity I love – and one I don’t do often enough – is to turn on the TV and watch a show by Sir David Attenborough.

In every show, David and his crew painstakingly reveal the secrets of life on the planet. His crew have taught me more about forests, plants, and animals than any science textbook or class I took in school.

We’re currently watching episodes from a series he’s done about Indian forests. I’ve already learnt more about Indian forests than I ever knew growing up in India.

I associate his voice with calm, curiosity, and wonder.

He’s 95 years old now and I don’t know how much time he has with us. But I sincerely hope he’s got a few more shows left in him.

Thank you, David, for continuing to inspire.
