Save Trees or Use Rubber

In Dil Se on May 31, 2011 at 10:40 pm

Life is hell these days, isn’t it?

Global warming, deforestation, rise in temperature, rise in sea level, natural calamities are making it worse for planet earth. We are facing problems like financial crisis, unemployment, food shortage, high property rates, costly health services, costly education and deadly competition. The situation is so harsh that it feels awful to be alive in this era. If this is so bad for us I can’t even imagine how bad it will be for coming generations.

In last hundred years half of the Earth’s mature tropical forests have been destroyed. In race of industrialization our grand fathers have left us with a highly polluted atmosphere and a life style that asks for more damage to the planet earth. The comfort and ease of living has increased the life expectancy and life style requirements. Greater financial needs and higher social protocols have caused for a stiffer competitive scenario. Larger populations and lesser habitable land are causing smaller houses and crowded cities. Unfortunately we are paying for sins of our grand fathers. But think what are we going to leave behind for our children?

They say 80% of tropical forest will be lost by 2030. Oil resources will run out by 2050. Sea level rise will drown two third of world’s major cities by end of this century. Food supplies will not be sufficient to feed all the humans. Land will no longer remain fertile given to the extensive use of chemical fertilizers. New generation machines and equipments will reduce the human involvement in industrial production resulting to lesser wages and fewer jobs. Unimaginable competition for higher education in race of acquiring high paying top class jobs will demand more out of tender brains. Extensive training and performance enhancing drugs will raise the bar for sports persons high up. Cities will grow and crowd. No more place for kids to play and grow under open sky and clear air.

Future will be gloomier if another world war strikes. The pure drinking water, depleting oil reserves, natural gas resources are already becoming issues for tussle between countries. If any one out of them decides to deploy a nuclear missile anywhere on earth it will start an all out war among all nations. Earth will no longer remain a place to live for humans. We will be wiped out in matter of days. The life on earth will surely survive but not with the human life.

This dark picture of future is not something purely out of imagination. We have already traveled a great distance towards it till date. If we don’t realize and change our course to the doom in time, we are sure to just be a part of history. Living a human life without caring for nature or rest of planet earth is not an option today. If we want our next generations to see the light of the day and a healthy atmosphere to grow and prosper we have to take steps accordingly. Save and restore the nature as much as you can. Conserve and judiciously use the natural resources. Make a habit of keeping a check on your requirements and utilization. Do not waste water, electricity, fuel and money. They are natural resources use them wisely. Cause no one but your own children will miss if you waste them today.

On a closing note,

Save earth.. save planet… save trees or just use rubber to eliminate the next generation at the very beginning.

Osama dead, Whats Next?

In Dil Se on May 6, 2011 at 1:41 pm

Osama Bin Laden murdered by USA navy seals in Pakistani city of Obbattabad, one hour drive from Pakistan capital Islamabad and 10 mins walk from Pakistan Military academy. This event is mere a facades to a great military and political drama that is still behind the banner.

Killing of Osama is a great milestone for America in its war against terror. Last ten to fifteen years America has constantly been on war. Every president since then has wedged war on Middle East. Clinton attacked Iraq for hiding chemical weapons in 1997. George W Bush wedged war, Crusade, against Afghanistan to avenge the 9/11 attack in 2001. Recently in Barack Obama intervened in Libya under the name of peace keeping in 2011. These wars have been a part of American society from past decades and have affected them in deep.

American hunger for war is purely because of its weapon business. Each war has given the world a peep through in to the future of military technology. More agile planes, stronger tanks, accurate missiles, deadly guns, night visions, surveillance gadgets, warships, submarines, intercontinental missiles, cruise missiles. Americans sell all these products and as a marketing strategy they have to demonstrate their performance through actual field experience. America cannot fight war on its land. It takes major portion of its continent and is neighbored by friendly Canada. Middle African terrain is not suitable for American heavy weight war gears. Europe, Australia, Russia and China are too powerful to play wars. So what remains as ideal place than Middle East to show off the military might?

Middle East is dangerously close to arch rival of weapons business Russia, Bordered by financial threat and country of world’s biggest army China. It’s vicinity with Europe can guaranty a safe retreat in allied countries, and strong reinforcements by NATO. Its deserted terrain and clear sky can be great advantage for heavy military gears and fighter jets. Hence what American has to do is to stage a war scenario and make the guns perform.

Apart from marketing weapons, Wars in Middle East give America a greater political advantage. Just like war in Vietnam was fought when Japan was emerging and threatening US’s economic monotony. America wants her army near threatening China and Russia. Military invasion in Pakistani land for killing Osama has now created a tussle between the US officials and Pakistani “Administration”. Now US can also wedge a war against Pakistan and move its army in to Pakistan so as to keep a constant pressure on countries like China and India. A move which can lead to more confrontations between USA and these emerging countries.

On the other hand, declaring world free of Osama Bin Laden can mean end of terrorism for ignorant American voters. The surge in Obama’s popularity is evident of the rise in in-land political power of Obama Administration and a nationwide acceptance of Obama policies. If he chooses to withdraw forces from Afghanistan and declares the closure of War against terrorism, that will mean the return of Army personals from battle field in another year and a welcoming rise in economy as a sweet gesture of end of war. That means by the end of his term Obama will be a favorite of American voters as he will be the president, who ended a decade long war, elevated the economy after recession and brought back the distant loved ones. It is a great political drama to secure another term in White House.

On an ending note, I feel this whole fiasco is leading a great rumble in the world politics which will now directly affect us Indians because of its geographical vicinity. I am not a foreign expert on these issues, but as a daily reader of News paper I am speculating what news may come in coming years. Those who may read it and find interesting please do reply. Expert comments are welcome!
