Hello friends, I was goiing through my blog post written on June, 2020. An entire year has rolled over since then, but nature’s fury is still to be pacified, as recent natural disaster around the world, might suggest. Please do give it a read to know more. Here it is!!
As Lord Krishna asserts in Bhagavad Gita,that the lord Almighty or the Ekam Brahmma is the father , the nature is the quintessential mother. He puts the seed into womb of mother nature and the creation comes into being. One who doesn’t believe in God, must acknowledge that there is some inherent power overseeing and maintaining the delicate balance in nature for all living beings to flourish. Otherwise, how come there is enough water for all living beings and convertion of it, to create clouds to maintain the water cycle, optimum oxygen and carbon dioxide and temperature for animals and plants to survive, fertile soil for flora to grow and the list goes on. If we look into an individual human body all its internal functions are synchronized to maintain a healthy body. Suppose we do something drastic, like taking lot of alcohol, drugs, binge eating unhealthy foods or keep an erratic lifestyle, our bodies can get afflicted by some disease or the other.
My point is, if we go on relentlessly daring and breaking the rules of nature ,the consequences would be disastrous. I sometimes shudder to think whether we have already reached the brink, the tripping point? Hopefully not, I pray , but the telltale signs are visible, in the form of- out of control wildfires in Australia and Amazon, tornadoes and cyclones more in frequency and fierceness, flash floods, the maximum temperature hovering around fifty in summers even in colder zones, polar regions turning greener, instead of remaining in perpetual cover of thick sheets of ice. Above them all, the unfortunate spread of the unholy Coronavirus, no matter man made or otherwise , has literally caught the world unawares and it’s still grappling about, how to extricate itself from its recalcitrant clutches.
We are indeed shutting our eyes willfully shut like that proverbial hare who did it when it heard about the earth is falling down. It is certainly not going to serve our cause, as the problems we confront now is not going to go away by itself. What to do? Wait for our respective governments to act? Why not as an individual we at least begin to try in our earnest ? As we have the tendency to save as much money or amass as much property we could, for our progeny, but is it really worth it? When the earth is going to be impossible to live on!! I am not writing this to create terror in your hearts, but to collectively seek a way out of the mess we have put our mother earth into, by our indiscriminate greed and utter apathy towards preserving it. l will discuss about the small yet very essential steps we could adopt as an individual to solve this predicament we find ourselves in, the upcoming blogs.
Stay safe and happy.
Adieu for now.
