"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." This line is a reminder to us, of our responsibility towards each other and towards the earth. We are all one and there is no planet B, let's remember to do our bit towards #ClimateAction every day 💚🌳🌏🐯 Every action counts. At the Jaipur Literature Festival, I had the opportunity to share the stage with some inspiring individuals and we request you to join us as we stand up for our planet, our only home. Oh and to all the dear children that have fighting twitter trolls all day trying to prove to them what we stand for and for how long we have, do please remember, “There is strength in fragility”. And NO ONE can alter the truth and wisdom of knowledge and science. Tears are NOT a BAD thing. #WeAreClimateAction #ZeeJaipurLitFest2020 #ForPeopleForPlanet #DecadeOfDelivery #GlobalGoals @uninindia @JaipurLitFest @orfonline @unep @unitednations @unsdgadvocates

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.”
