Mother nature is not even targeting us

       On   I was sitting at my home studying for upcoming exams, just then I felt the bed is vibrating , and so does the floor and everything around. Wah! What was happening. A 7.9 earthquake struck Nepal and the entire northern India including Delhi (where I live). The vibrations were low in Delhi. But it continued for more than 2 minutes. I speculated that some place would not have been so lucky.
       The epicenter of the earthquake was at Katmandu, Nepal , a country that was not at all ready for such calamity. Till now dearth tool has reached above 10,000 and increasing. Three is how damage to infrastructure and reconstruction would be worth about 60,000 crore rupees (10 billion dollars i.e approximately 40% of country’s GDP).
      Nepal is a poor country full of poors . This calamity has featured everything for many. More than 1.4 million children are homeless, cold and hungry. Millions are relying only on uncoupled noodles for food.
      Why all this to the most vulnerable? Why mother nature showed its wrath on these poor people? Mother nature should be living and caring. When you look at those people anyone will doubt this.
      So does mother nature is not do divine, not do loving and caring, not so mother like. She brings earthquake, tsunamis, feminine, eruptions killing millions and destroying everything for millions more. Separating the families, killing dear once, destroying someone’s home. This is not what we except from a mother. Do we? Mother should be exact opposite.
        So do we abolish the phrase mother nature ? Do we start believing that there is nothing divine about mother nature? Does humanity is an orphan ?
        If you agree on this you w will change your opinion in next 5 minutes. Just read till the end .
        Do you know how much energy is released during a normal earthquake? It is really more than 10,000 times the energy released when Hiroshima was destroyed by the fat boy(code name of nuclear weapon that destroyed Hiroshima during world war 2). Yes you hear it correct. That much energy. Even a cyclone have energy around 2-3 thousand Hiroshima bomb. A tsunami easily have energy of 1,00,000 Hiroshima bomb. What that means. Even a normal earthquake have the potential to destroy 10,000 cities.
     But does any calamity in the entire human history has done such case destruction. No, because otherwise humanity will not be thriving on earth. I believe that we would not even present on this planet. Human race would have been extinct thousand of years ago.
        We are fortunate that mother nature is not specifically targeting us. Otherwise………
       We humans give too much importance to ourself. May be we are at top of the food chains. We are most intelligent being. But we all know how much we are dependant on nature. We are a very small civilisation at the corner of the vast universe. We areusext to nothing when compared with mother nature.
      But mother nature doesn’t think like that. She considers us her dear children. She had given us the air we breathe, tthewater we drink, solid earth to live on – perfect conditions to live a good life.
    Then why these calamities come. This is because even mother nature sometimes require to release some pressure. Do you know if an earthquake have never happened in human history. Earthquakes are result of movements of tectonic plates. Only way to stop earthquake is to stop this movement. But this movement is important for recycling carbon that is an essential condition for life. In big planets like Saturn or Jupiter where there is no tectonic movement for to very strong gravity , life will be not possible (even if they have all other conditions to support life).
      Hence, whatever mother nature does is for the well being of her children. There is colletral damage in everything. We have to understand that mother nature have very big responsibly of maintaining this universe and all her children. She cannot love only a few.
     May be you have lost someone dear in a natural calamity(I pray that out is not so), you may find my opinion offensive. Try to put your self at the place of mother nature. You will feel great power. But with great power comes great responsibility. This is one of the greatest law of nature that it cannot break itself.
     Even then she tried to protect us as much as possible. Like in Nepal earthquake 10,000 people died and in Hiroshima more than 1,50,000 people have for in the nuclear blast.
      Mother nature have given us so much and what we have returned. Ecological imbalance or global warming. Harming her other children. Do you think she will tolerate this. All this calamities are just a small warning. Warning for us to rectify out mistake when it is still time. Else we will be punished. Mother nature will protect life at any cost. Even if cost is our extinction. She has done this before (like when dinosaurs proceed to be threatening to other life forms they are blown away) , she will do it again if necessary. It is better if we improve before that.
      May be we cannot stop any natural calamity but we can at least help those affected by it. This way we can show her that we are deserving of her love and much. Pray with me that soul of all who lost their life in Nepal earthquake may test in peace in the lap of mother nature and born again from her womb to live a happy life and serve their fellow beings.
      Thanks for reading. May you have a blissful life.

  1. The power within the planet we live on is greater than us and you are right in saying how we need to respect and protect our environment and those who are vulnerable. Maybe the human will rise to this. Earthquakes have always happened but global warming and habitat destruction are human errors. Good to read your post and hope that there will be enough support for Nepal, surely one of the most beautiful places, on our planet.
