..::: Zeitgeist India :::..

How’s our world?

It's in trouble, to say the least.

When we stare rabid globalization in the face, we realize that the most basic problems we face today are not individual challenges anymore. Money, corruption, hunger, housing, these are all global challenges. The statistics may differ for all of us, but the problems don’t.

Yet we continue to cling to our precious identities. Manmade labels of country, religion, class, colour, race and others, each one fabricated to divide, not unite. Through our self-preserving perspective, we fail to realize just how much damage we are causing to our environment. So, not only does the planet have to face its own environmental problems, it has to suffer human conflict too.

Now, if this isn’t the most mind-bending irony of being human, then what is?
Hunger kills one person per second.
Preventable diseases kill 35,000 kids per day.
One person commits suicide every 40 seconds.
10 countries possess nuclear capabilities.
21 armed conflicts were resolved only in the past decade.
17 wars are ongoing even today (2 of them, including Kashmir, since over 60 years).
We’re losing 1 hectare of forest every 2 seconds.
One species goes extinct every 3 minutes.
Since the 1890s, the top 5 warmest years have been 2005, 1998, 2002, 2003 and 2004.
