Mother Earth has found a way to heal: Rohit Sharma

New Delhi [India], Mar 22 (ANI): Despite agreeing that the country is going through 'extremely difficult' times, cricketer Rohit Sharma said our planet has shown us what difference a 'lifestyle change' can make as air and noise pollution levels witnessed a dip amid coronavirus pandemic.

Sharma took to Twitter to post the message.

"Through these extremely difficult and dangerous times, Mother Earth has found a way to heal. Our planet has shown us what a difference a lifestyle change can make even in a short amount of time. We always wondered if it was too late to combat climate change but Mother Earth has shown us that we can reverse it and help her heal if we all do it together," the message read.

"Through these testing times India has seen a major drop in its air and noise pollution levels, Venice has dolphins playing in their harbours, boars running around their streets, Rome has swans in their fountains and the pollution levels have dropped all over the world! This is the world we need to protect," he added.
