Journey of the Monarchs!

Alright, this is for those who look upon the environment as they look up on themselves. I saw the program in PBS which was about the migration of Monarch Butterflies from Canada to Mexico almost for more than 2000 miles journey across the continent. All that the program was talking is about their lifecycles and ongoing research to solve the mystery of how it is able to make out that long journey. There was a little point in whcih the disscussion was about logging of declared sanctuaries for monarch butterflies. When saw those forests being cleared I cannot explain the sort of emotions that I was in; my eyes started watering.......
I have heard people saying give me my space. How much space do we need really? When are we (the so called civilized people) going to give other biotic elements their space. There is a lot to this not just deatroying the adobe but the culture itself because I believe this migration is a part of the region's itself if we believe that they also belong to our community.
This is not a problem that could be limited to the American continent alone. On careful introspection we could see such things happenig globally. Most developing countries strive to become developed countries and are using it resources beyond the threshold level. On careful observation it can be known that developing countries in their so called development process are just utilizing their resources to gain economic benefits by satisfying the needs of developing countries. Its not to draw a line between the countries but everyone as a global citizen needs to wake up and work together to achieve a sustainable living.
Wake up to the call the nature! No life without earth unless a similar planet is discovered.............

Our Republic Day

We are on our 60th rebuclic day today. I find it strange these days that we dont have that real national passion in taking pride of the Constitution of India. Rather the young India looks at this day as a National Holiday. No hard feelings, the youth of India have started to lose their confidence in the Constitution since it has no role to play in a layman's life. It is either for the elite or the criminals. Take the celeberations of republic day it is just a ritual.......... Some mahatma photos, garlands and show case of India's might. No one even sees them in the TV why we are more intrested in the name of the pet that our famous film actresses have. Nothing to blame because this is a globalized world.
Yes we are turning to be globalized people. Good sign!
We are dreaming for an American life. Atleast let us win in that dream. Let us create a mini America out of India.
