January 29 : Actor-activist Dia Mirza, who has been quite vocal over climate change issues, recently spoke at the 13th edition of the Literature Festival, which took place over five days from January 23 to 27 at Jaipur’s Diggi Palace.
Dia, who has been the United Nations Environment Program's Goodwill Ambassador, hit the headlines after she broke down during a panel discussion at the Jaipur Literature Festival. While the actress was trolled and called “Desi Greta Thunberg” and accused of hypocrisy on social media, Dia said that she broke down when she came to know about the death of NBA player Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash along with his daughter.
Dia took to her Instagram handle and posted a bunch of pictures from the event. The diva looked simple in a white shirt teamed with a pair of black pants, black Nehru jacket and black shoes. She wrote in her caption that since we do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors but borrow it from our children, we all have the responsibility towards the Earth. The actress urged all to do their bit towards climate change. She also wrote, “Tears are not a bad thing.”
