Nature is a Great Leveler!

Nature is a Great Leveler!
- Mohnish


















The tragedy in #Uttarakhand is devastating and beyond human imagination. It pains to see so many lives being lost and so many stranded with no food and shelter. What is even scarier is to know that those caught in the middle of nature’s fury are ordinary pilgrims like you and me. They could have very well been someone we love or know. While I watch this colossal disaster, I also realized that this is a result of a certain kind of ignorant arrogance in built in us as humans.

The desire to be superior to everything else and the greed to amass and possess has led us humans to dig our own graves. I feel pained and hurt to see corporations run with utter disregard to our environment. I feel we all are part of this and one day we will all be shown our place by the furious TAANDAV of Mother Nature. I just hope we learn a lesson and stop getting so greedy about stamping our footprints where we are not supposed to be…

Let’s learn to respect nature. Else we will learn the hard way that Nature like death is a great leveler.
