In a very disturbing turn of events, several trees all over the world surprised humans with their newfound ability to move! It has been reported that several trees all over the world uprooted themselves and started moving forward haphazardly, leaving a trail of mass destruction in their wake. Scientists are quite baffled by this new development. We can only hope that all of the trees around us don’t catch this weird ability. The destruction would be unprecedented! Many experts believe this sudden evolutionary trend of trees to be Nature’s way of avenging years of abuse at the hands of humanity.

Let’s hope that we don’t keep pushing Nature so much to the extent that she feels a retaliation is in order. But then again, there are many who believe that the coronavirus might be Nature’s way of avenging herself. Let us do our part, no matter how small it may seem, to save Nature and her precious resources. Even a small step can go a long way!
For the visually challenged readers, the picture shows several uprooted trees in front of a building. The entire appears to have been cordoned off.
