Human Beings – Dumb or Blind or Suicidal?

5 days ago, the city of Bombay recorded a temperature above 40 degrees Centigrade.

A few days before this was Earth Hour and I realized that there must have been hardly 50% participation in my city, if that!

Strange, that we all crib and complain about how hot it is. How it never used to be this hot. But few of us take ACTION to stem or reverse. To change our behaviours.

Sometimes, I just give up, and the quote from the Matrix makes sense. where he says “Humans are

like viruses. They infest an area and over a period of time proceed to consume all the resources it has to offer. Having destroyed it, they then move to a new area.”

Are we Blind? Dumb? or Suicidal? Is it our destiny to remain in a cycle of life after death – meaning extinction, and then rebirth – after millenia? I wonder.

What are your thoughts? Your experience? Please comment. Would love to spark a discussion that goes someplace.

    Hi Sush

    Always respect your opinions. Would have loved to have you add your thoughts about the piece on women in leadership. Since you have achieved so much yourself, as a woman, in a very male context. Your sharing of your experience will provide a lot of value.

    Thanks for visiting!

    Very thought provoking . I am sad about the way election scene is . It seems as if downgrading other parties is a way of getting votes . So violent and narrow . These are all the practices which are creating pollution. The earth cant move towards new consciousness if our dialogues dont change . Hence I liked some of the conversations you have started on your blog.
    love and hugs
    sush
