World’s Biodiversity

Can you imagine living all alone on this big planet? I think you will say no just because what we share in common is the feeling of togetherness with others, as we are living beings but how could you imagine to survive without surroundings. For survival we need the surrounding which includes air, water, land, flora and fauna with a unique diversity. This is how we live on this planet; as everything exists because everything depends. It is important to understand the interdependence of living organisms within an ecosystem. For e.g. food chain in nature. The food chain is the sequence of events in an ecosystem, where one organism eats another and then is eaten by another organism. It starts with the primary producers which make food, continues with consumers who eat the food, and ends with the top predator.

“It turns out that all life is interconnected with all other life— Richard Feynman

Biodiversity is the term used to describe the variety or richness of life present on Earth in total. Biodiversity is the “biological diversity with an attribute of life.” It refers to all the variety of life that can be found on Earth including plants, animals, fungi and micro-organisms to the communities that they form and the habitats in which they live, such as mountain, forest, corals etc. Biodiversity is the sum of all ecosystems, species and genetic matter with listed variation. Here ecosystem corresponds to a series of complex relationships between biotic (living) components such as plants and animals and abiotic (non-living) components like sunlight, air, water, minerals and nutrients.

Uniformity is not nature’s way; diversity is nature’s way—Vandana Shiva

World Biodiversity Day is celebrated on 22 May to mark the importance of biodiversity and also to increase global awareness about the related issues like climate change, extinction of animals etc. This is a cause to conserve nature and all other forms of life on this planet. Biodiversity is essential because it has got intrinsic value which says, each species has got a significant role to play and right to exist. We can find our cultural roots and biological diversity connected in many form for e.g. humans are not the only species to use plants for medicinal reasons: the great apes like orangutans, chimpanzees and gorillas have all been observed self-medicating with plants.

Values on which humans are dependent on biodiversity are Cultural—the Indian culture is closely connected to biodiversity through the expression of identity, through spirituality and through aesthetic appreciation. Indigenous Aryans have strong connections and obligations to biodiversity arising from spiritual beliefs about animals and plants. Scientific—biodiversity gives the source of data that help us to understand the natural world and its origins.  Economic– we get raw materials for consumption and production. Many livelihoods, such as those of farmers, fishers and timber workers, are dependent on biodiversity. Ecological life support– biodiversity provides functioning ecosystems that supply oxygen, clean air and water, pollination of plants, pest control, wastewater treatment and many ecosystem services.  Recreation—many recreational pursuits rely on our unique biodiversity, such as bird watching, hiking, camping and fishing. Our tourism industry also depends on biodiversity.

Humanity’s fate is tightly linked with biological diversity–United Nations

A negative impact on biodiversity due to all uncontrolled human activities such as industrial revolution, rapid industrialization, carbon emission, pollution, the destruction of habitats through agriculture, over fishing, deforestation, hunting, depletion of natural resources, the use of pesticides, and the release of other toxic compounds into the environment are causing serious loss and decline in the condition of environment. Appropriate conservation and sustainable development strategies could be the key approach to preserve biodiversity.

Many people are helping to make the world a better place, but humanity as a whole is making it difficult for other living creatures that share our planet to survive.

Conservation of biodiversity can be done with identifying the social, cultural and economical factors influencing the biodiversity, creating campaign for public awareness, community based participation and sustainable practices with integrated approaches to achieve results.  We can do follow such steps: reduce, reuse, recycle, buy local and organic foods, use public transport, consume less, save energy, be Eco friendly, restore habitat, feed animals, protect wildlife, volunteer and leave the wild things in the wild. Just start living for your environment.

Go Went Gone…

The day had arrived finally when Preet did final Adios to her past with a mindful decision of being free, a Divorce to her mythical world, she had created insisted by her husband..The ups and down were not important but only matters was the fate of not being together and those plastic feelings with a tormented soul she received over her period of life with her husband.

“All stories are true..The truth is the journey you take from it. Did it make you laugh,cry or seek and want justice? Then it’s true.” You never really know what’s coming.

A small wave, or maybe a big one. All you can really do is hope that when it comes, you can surf over it, instead of drowning.

Letting go gives you freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in your heart, you still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – you cannot be free.

The chains that break you, are the chains that make you. And the chains that make you, are the chains you break.

Set the soul free as if you find unhappiness, just leave and live forever..

We are trapped by our possession only but we could be free by a wise decision..

The only fear of losing turned the dreams into nightmare but once dark clouds disappear, a new day begins that belongs solely to you..

If after several tortures and disrespect you find it is hard to live in hell, dissolve that last thin patience you are left with and move away instead of moving on..

The truth will always set the lies free from the cage of bondage. But sometimes a lie will hurt and truth will set you free or may be the truth will hurt and lie will set you free..

All good is hard, all evil is easy. Lying-2, losing, cheating and preaching. Stay away from easy..

To be like dominoes is not good fall for one or fall for none… The lesson you learnt is to never forget as the bondage you broke was never meant for you…

Some false characters do check-in and check-out without your permission and even recognition..

Go-Went-Gone…. All played well by characters…Kudos to team and framework. 🙂

क्या खोया क्या पाया !!

क्या खोया क्या पाया जग में,
मिलते और बिछड़ते मग में,
मुझे किसी से नहीं शिकायत,
यधपि छला गया पग-पग में,
एक दृष्टि बीती पर डालें,
यादों की पोटली टटोलें,
जन्म मरण का अविरत फेरा,
जीवन बंजारों का अविरत डेरा,
आज यहाँ कल वहाँ कूच है,
कौन जानता किधर सवेरा,
अंधियारा आकाश असीमित,
प्राणों के पखों को तौलें,
अपने ही मन से कुछ बोलें,

…….

सचमुच सच ।।

अाजादी क्या है, कभी सोचा हैं, चलो हम लोगों ने तो अंग्रेजो की गुलामी नहीं की मगर अंग्रेजी की तो कर रहें हैं, अालम तो यह है कि नैतिकता की समझ हो या नहीं बनदे मे नौकरी तो अंग्रेजी बोलने वाले को ही मिलती हैं ।

आजादी के मतलब अब आजकल वो नहीं सब आजाद है, जो मुझे पसंद वो तुम्हें नहीं, और जो तुम्हें पसंद वो मुझे नहीं सो हम सब अनेक हैं, और विचार भी अनेक हैं तभी तो अनेकता में नेकता का दम निकल गया।

सच पूछो तो हम अाजाद कभी हुए ही नहीं, अंग्रेज गए,अलगाववाद, नौकरशाही और मुनाफा की निती सिखा गये, जिसे हमने भी सीख लिया और तरक्की का पयमाना मान बैठें।

सोने की चिड़िया अब भी हैं, बस पहले सरेआम लूटा और अब धोखाधड़ी से लूट रहे हैं , गरीब का कर्ज चुकाने में वो सोना कही बंद हैं तिजोरी मे।

पैसे कमाने की होड़ में, चापलूसी और घूंसखोरी की ऐसी आदत सी पड़ी कि, जनाब उसके कब गुलाम बन गए पता ही नहीं चला और इसलिए अब बहुत लोगों ने मेहनत और ईमानदारी से समझौता करना सीख भी लिया हैं।

बाज़ार में नया प्रोडक्ट लाते ही, पुरानी चीजों में कमिया दिखाई देने लगती हैं, फिर पड़ जाती है इनकी आदत और बन जाते हैं आप गुलाम ।

गुलाम आप तब तक हैं जब तक उसके साथ आपका स्वार्थ जुड़ा है। आजाद तो वही थे जो अपने साथ लाएँ तो कुछ नहीं पर दुनिया को बहुत कुछ दे गए लेकिन पीछे कुछ छोडा़ भी नहीं ।

खुद की दुनिया से निकल कर देख, दुनिया बहुत बड़ी हैं, शायद किसी को तेरी ही जरूरत आन पड़ी हैं ।आंखे बंद होने से पहले, यदि आंखे खुल जाए, दावे के साथ कहते हैं, पूरी ज़िंदगी सुधर जाए।

आजादी का सपना क्या सचमुच सच होगा ।

A Pale Blue Dot…That’s Home…

Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home, we have ever known.

— Carl Sagan

Are we cruel…?

Humans are the most advanced race in this world but just think in this slow evolution process in the long course of time what we have actually lost…This is the big question to present race of human on this planet…The evolution and extinction went simultaneously many species had vanished from this beautiful planet. Now we are shifting slowly to the mouth of danger but the chance is we started running to the end of extinction by thinking ourselves to be the most genious forgetting that we will too vanish. The humans are the most cruel and avaricious beings. If you pretend to be the master of your own destiny then you are not because nature has an important role to play in between. Just keep it mind that we are alive and connected because nature and planet is alive, once devastation will start, it will take entirely few seconds to end up the process…Love your environment and think twice before any act against nature…Be Ecofriendly in real sense just use your common sense…and listen to the voice of that new born baby who only knew what is hunger, cry and mother’s love..Nature is your Mother love it…protect it…Think twice before you Act..

Listen to your silent conscience and act because its not too late…
