    As a Indian myself born in the United States, this means a lot. Many times Indians are looked upon as people who live in a country that does not care about global warming or as of now, climate change. However, as shown in this article by Quartz, there are people who care.

    One thing I want to point out, is that many of the protestors were people who wanted change now. Many of them were young people, students who skipped school, their jobs, their money to protest the injustice that is being done throughout the world. With the help of the charge by Greta Thunberg, people around the world, and in this case, India, people are understanding that this issue is not going to go away easily, but with hard work and sacrifice, we can change.

    However, I do agree with the older young adults who argue that there is no "concrete plan or demands", which needs to be implemented. This needs to change. And the reasoning behind this is the understanding for others that there is a plan to battle climate change, that there is a chance.

    As an Indian, I have many family members, friends who are skeptical as well, with this same reason, arguing that there is no plan, or the plan that is there will not help them, now or in the future as their success in life is more important than what "might" happen.

    With this, hope is there. But as noted, the plan for this should, no needs to be implemented and detailed in order to more properly change our habits.
