After 63 Years

16 Jan 2013 – Still More Questions…

The environment issues have always been within me and on the 63rd years onto life’s journey with still so many questions without answers over the years of so-called progress have only left even with more questions and not any wiser! And if you ask 63 people, you will have 63 answers 🙂


Mon, the first day of the Maha Kumbh Mela, Hindu devotees gather at Sangam, the confluence of the Ganges, Yamuna and mythical Saraswati river on Makar Sankranti. Millions of Hindu pilgrims are expected to take part in the large religious congregation, which falls every 12 years and lasts for a period of over a month, during which devotees wash themselves in the waters of the Ganges believing that it washes away their sins and ends the process of reincarnation…

Both over pop and pollutions on top of ignorance, greed and the chase of the materialistic values and power will eventually destroy our beautiful planet Earth. At present China and India top the contribution to most to the over pop and pollution issues. Unfortunately we are all culprits as we add to the problems by being consumers and being alive!!


Francis in FB so eloquently puts it – The threat of China to the western world is unfounded because most of the people in China will soon die of cancer derived from air pollution, contaminated water supply, toxic baby powder and dangerous, unsafe food chain.

Pollution levels of 300+ is bad. The US Embassy in Beijing City measured a level of 800+ but were asked not to officially announce it!! Over the weekend, while Beijing/China pollution levels hit 800+, Røros/Norway had temp of -33.6°C and if is this not global warming, what is?? All pix credits to The Straits Times as there is no way this life journey chooses to be near any crowds and smog.


After paying respects to my parents at the crematorium with some reflective time, will take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your Bday greetings. Appreciations for your thoughts and kind words. Your beings have made this life journey worth while even with all the questions without answers…
