April 22, 2014 marked the 44th anniversary of Earth Day, a truly international day, which was founded in 1970 on the same day by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson. Since that time, Earth Day has expanded quickly, and is now celebrated by over 190 countries worldwide.

Mrs. McIntyre noted that the United States and India have played a significant role in developing the Earth Day as an international day.

She further added, "Our countries' mutual promotion of Earth Day activities is one of several points of cooperation between the U.S. and India in addressing the world's environmental concerns."

The Earth Anthem written by poet-diplomat Abhay K. has been appreciated by UNESCO, Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala and sining-nun and UNICEF's goodwill Ambassador Ani Choying Drolama.
