Nature, in the broadest sense, is equivalent to the natural world, physical world, or material world. “Nature” talks about the marvels of the physical world, and also to life in common. It ranges in gauge from the subatomic to the cosmic.

The word “nature” is derivative of Latin word natura, or “essential qualities, innate disposition”, and literally means “birth”. Natura was translated to Latin from a Greek word physis, which associate plants, animals, and other features of the world as developing of their own parallel pact. 

The word “nature” also denotes to living plants, animals, geological processes, weather, and physics, such as matter and energy. The words natural and nature are used for all the things that are generally not prepared by humans. Things like landforms, organisms, weather and much more are part of nature. The term also refers to the “natural environment” or wilderness—wild animals, beaches, forest, rocks, and in general areas that have not been markedly altered by humans, or which persists its original form in spite of human intervention.

The beauty of nature is regarded as its beauty resulting mainly from the marvelous diversity of living organisms that exist in various parts of the earth, as well as the unique topography of mountains, plateaus, water and forests. Each of these features is eminent by a special beauty that distinguishes it from Other terrain, and this great diversity gave people wide spaces to seek calm, inner peace, tranquility, mental relaxation and serenity.

From one point of view, humans are a chief example of nature, and are the most extensively studied and researched natural inhabitants of the planet earth. Humans interact with each other in their natural environment on constant basis. Each and every part of nature – everything from the air to the dirt on the ground – is mutually dependent.

From alternative point of view, nature and human can be said to be in clash. Nature is often grasped as natural resource by humans. People cut down trees, grow crops and mine ores. Cars (vehicles), fires and factories make a lot of smoke and harm nature. People who like to leave nature undamaged and those who feel they need to use more of nature often combat about what they should do. In the modern world, with many more people and many big cities, these issues are becoming more and more serious.

Nature is one of the greatest blessings for human life; however, nowadays humans unable to recognize it as one. Nature has been a stimulus for numerous poets, writers, artists and more of yesteryears. This extraordinary creation inspired them to write poems and stories in the glory of it. They truly loved nature which reflects in their works even today. Essentially, nature is everything we are surrounded by like the air we breathe in, the water we drink, the sun we soak in, the birds we hear chirping, and more. Above all, it is rich, flamboyant and consists of both living and non-living things. Consequently, people of the modern age ought to learn something from the people of former times and start treasuring nature before it gets too late.

Nature has been existent long before humans and ever since it has foster mankind and nourished it always. Further, it offers us a protective layer which serves as a safeguard for us against all kinds of damages and harms. Endurance of mankind without nature is not possible and humans must realize that.

If nature has the ability to protect us, it is also powerful enough to destroy the entire mankind. Every kind of nature, for instance, the plants, animals, rivers, oceans, mountains, sun, moon, and more holds equal significance for us. Absence of one element is enough to cause a disaster in the functioning of human life.

We accomplish our healthy lifestyle by eating and drinking healthy, which nature gives us. Similarly, it provides us with water and food that empowers us to do so. Sunshine and rainfall, the two most significant elements to survive are derived from nature itself. Further, the air we breathe and the wood we use for various purposes are the gifts of nature. But, with technological developments, people are not paying any heed to nature. It is needed to skimp and balance the natural assets as danger to nature is rising day by day which requires immediate attention.
