Humanity

We are so clouded by the beauty/ truth of a picture that we fail to see the back of the coin. The photographer is sometimes so taken with the idea of the picture that humanity is shoved aside. Sometimes the best picture need not be captured but should be salvaged. Humanity for humanity’s sake should be encouraged.

History of the World

The start of the human race was initiated from Africa. The greatest civilisations to ever have existed were made centuries ago in the following regions:

1. Indus Valley civilisation ( of Bronze Age) – Harappa, Mohenjo-radro, Dholavira, Ganeriwala , Rakhigarhi.

2. Egypt civilisation – most ancient pyramids were built in Saqqara. However, largest pyramid built was Khufu at Giza

3. Mesopotamia – Ziggurat in Iraq along the rivers of Tigris-Euphrates

4. Damascus – Damascus, Syria. Damascus is widely believed to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, with evidence of habitation dating back to at least 11,000 years ago.

Where do these countries stand today in relation to power, civilisation rate, standard of living, technology?

There has been nil progress as compared to the origins of these civilisations. These civilisations were more advanced as compared to the world around them. They could sense the future and achieve it but they were unable to sustain themselves against the mankind’s follies.

What we guage is that a super power today will not be there forever and there will be a new entrant w.r.t. power/ technology. All this is built today by extracting resources from existing flourishing nations.

We can only wait and watch what does the human race do next or where will the world lead us in the coming years. The only predictable thing about humanity is its unpredictability.

The Power of Me

I am who I am. I will not justify myself to anyone. I don’t need to love myself through the skewed version of society. Irrespective of whether I’m religious or an atheist, whether I enjoy alcohol or am a teetotaler. Whether I’m a vegetarian or not. Whether I smoke, whether I believe in social service. Irrespective of any of my beliefs.

Why are there socialistic pre-requisites to survive in this world? Why is each one judged based on their choices? Why welcome some and shun some based on their right to live life the way they want?

No one has a right to judge me for anything I do, did, didn’t do or don’t plan to do.

I live irrespective of what people believe I should be doing. I do not owe them a justification for my faith.

I believe that the Almighty sees all. I believe in karma. I believe in giving more than expecting. I believe in leaning away from the materialistic world we are brought up in. I believe in a fairy tale. I believe that the best is yet to come.

And it’s okay if you don’t believe these things. Because we believe in humanity.

Life is Cheap

Respect for humanity is a rare phenomenon

Humanity is all around us but we’re all still afraid

Afraid that one living happily today may not live tomorrow. Death matters to no one in the long term. We all move on and have become immune to the concept

Due to a population explosion there is no value for life, as there is always someone available as a replacement

India is different in comparison to many of its peers where human life accounts for something.

I believe that since there is no monetary loss due to loss of human life, the materiality  has diminished. Instead insurance serves as a medium to view death as a benefit.

We run behind various things in our life but nothing will stay with us till the very end.

We like to have money, a  beautiful body and close friends and relatives but no one accompanies the dying. The only thing that dies with us is our SOUL and we never care for it, nurture it or love it. We try to achieve everything in life but peace and purity of the soul is never in our to do list, when that’s the only thing that is immortal within us. 

Before we blame others that life is not valued in third world countries and so on, how much do we value our true soulful life? 

If we don’t value it, why should anyone else?
