Earth Quakes. Everyone has their own interpretations for them. A Poet would say “It is the anger of Mother Nature”. An Ascetic would say “It is the punishment of the Lord”. A Scientist would say “It is the action of pressure principles”. A Common man would say “It is Fate”. But what would a person who had lost his family say?
He could find no words. He has lost everything. He has lost his family for which he was working the entire life. He has lost his wife to whom he would share his deepest secrets. He has lost his child who would come & hug him every evening. He has lost his parents who would take care of him, though his age is 35+, like a child. Losing the loved ones is the cruelest punishment. Why is he punished? What is his Sin?
If you would say, it is Fate…. Even I would have told the same answer until I have read the following article. http://earthquake.starmatrimonials.com/ The article states that the quakes occur due the excessive Oil digging and mining.
There are few points to note in this article:
- This article is written by a person Laxmanmurthy Ganesh. He is not academically qualified to give his comments on such earth quakes. Nor he is working for some organization doing similar research. He seems to be a Social activist.
- The article does not have any data for proving his findings.
Thinking logically his reasoning seems to be valid. But none will take up research. You need funding to do research. And Government/Private will not fund such research. It would not help them financially. The government of the countries, where the mining/digging happens, will not support this research. Because they would lose their economy. The developed countries also will not support this research. Because they would lose the oil, gold and diamonds. If individuals would raise these concerns, they will be ignored as proof less.
So, we are ready to kill thousands, sometimes ourselves for the luxury of Oil-Gold-Diamonds? Aren’t we? I am not suggesting anything like stop using oil.(Though my mind says that as a proper solution that is not feasible) That is certainly not possible in today’s World. But minimizing is possible. If everyone would use the Vehicles only at the time of utmost necessity there are chances of minimizing. The public transport could be a better alternative.
As far as Gold and Diamonds are concerned, let that coal stones be in their rightful places. As educated individuals, let us stop using the gold and diamonds. If anyone would say the World Economy would collapse, let that Economy go to Hell. We cannot risk the lives of millions for the comfort of economists and money-launderers.
Let us protect the earth & thus protect ourselves…..
