Recently, almost the same week when the “superman pope”-Pope Francis gave an historic message on Climate Change, I got this opportunity to watch ‘Bhaghamandalam’ – written and directed by my friend Mr.Shankar Rajkumar. This movie made me think so much and whose inspiration is this blog.
Look at the beautiful planet – Earth, We live there and we call it our home. It is here gods are said to have incarnated, it is here bold religious doctrines are formed, ideologies, economic doctrines, super powers, super stars, kings and emperors, heroes and cowards, creators and destroyers of civilizations, supreme leaders, saint-gurus, couples in love and so on…. Great!!! It is true. Planet Earth has cancer. And that cancer is called Man.
Homo Sapiens – Where we are going as a species is a big question. You want to go with the flow. The sea refuses no river. The idea is to remain in a state of constant departure while always arriving. If we look at the history, we can realize the evolution of society. Human evolution certainly hasn’t stopped. Every time individuals produce a new zygote, there’s a reshuffling and recombination of genes. And we don’t know where all of that is going to take us. One thing we can understand is that, on all the stages of human evolution, the most basic needs of human life haven’t changed. It is always the struggle for survival and the survival of the fittest. It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.
Change is the law of life. Aren’t we running out of time to rectify the menace that we have made to this planet? Global Warming and climate change is not the prediction of the future, but a planetary crisis of the present. I ‘m afraid we’re losing the real virtues of living life passionately,
the sense of taking responsibility for who you are, the ability to make something of yourself and feeling good about life. Existentialism is often discussed as if it’s a philosophy of despair.But I think the truth is just the opposite.
Making decisions. Doing things and taking the consequences. It might be true that there are seven billion people in the world and counting. Nevertheless, what you do makes a difference. It makes a difference, first of all, in material terms. Makes a difference to other people and it sets an example. In short, the message here is that we should never simply write ourselves off and see ourselves as the victim of various forces. It’s always our decision who we are.
It’s up to each and every one of us to turn loose and just shovel the greed, the hatred, the envy and, yes, the insecurities, because that is the central mode of control– make us feel pathetic, small… so we’ll willingly give up our sovereignty, our liberty, our destiny. We have got to realize that we’re being conditioned on a mass scale. Start challenging this corporate slave state!
Humankind is too good! We’re not a bunch of underachievers! We’re gonna stand up and we’re gonna be human beings! We’re gonna get fired up about the real things, the things that matter: creativity and the dynamic human spirit that refuses to submit!
We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children
Well, that’s it! That’s all I got to say! It’s in your court.
