The word, ‘panchatatva,’ originates from Sanskrit, where, “panch” stands
for five and “tatva” indicates elements. Following the universal law of life, every thing on this planet is composed of five basic elements or the “panchamahabhutas”. These are : Prithvi,Jal,Agni,Vayu and Akash. The panchtatva not only make up our environment and habitats,they also make us up. Everything that makes us and surrounds us is matter and this matter is panchtatva.Unfortunately we human beings ,in our quest for modernisation disturbed these elements of nature,over a period of so many years.
Deforestation,Global warming,Green house effect,pollution,man made made activities. All these lead to the disturbance of Panchtatva the elements of life, resulting in natural calamities like,tsunami,landslides and the recent Nepal Earth Quake which was felt by all of us here in our country as well.It’s time we woke up to all these warning signals of the Universe.It’s time to conserve forests,conserve water and care for mother earth.We need to calm her down.It’s time we made our presence felt and contributed to the environmental issues. Panchtatvas are Abiotic factors which make up the environment of our planet Earth.It is important that we take care of our environment .Simple day to day individual measures go a long way in conserving Our
Environment or The Panchtatvas.
