One Earth, One Life, Irreparable Damage


Sooner or later, we will have to recognize that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans- Evo Morale

World’s numero uno polluter, the great America has just pulled out of the all important environmental commitment proposed to be signed by almost all countries of the world. This is just an epitome of utmost arrogance of capitalism. What one can expect from the corporate business man, Donald Trump than this. It is an irony that the latest threat to our Mother Earth happening around the time we observe the World Environment Day, which falls on 5th June every year.

No commitment is too much and no action is too late, the only thing is it is urgent, urgent, and urgent. Things have to be done sooner in a sustained way and it has to be a life style ever after. Because we have one earth, one life and there are natural laws and principles which must not be broken to have a lasting earth and lasting life.

There are good signs around the corner: the failure of the LPG (Liberalization, Privatization, Globalization) formula which has helped crony capitalism to exploit the world and to encourage a meager 1% of billionaires owning almost 50% of the world’s wealth is naked and visible in front of the ordinary man. Sooner than later there will be revolutions around the world against mass production, exploitation of natural resources by corporate, consumerism and finally the wealth will be redistributed in some formula. We hope in the new world order the earth will have its own rights and its own say.

Revisiting Ambedkar’s Vision of ‘United States of India’: Can It Stand as Modern India’s Viable Alternative?

In April 2020, Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor waded into the debate, arguing that a Presidential system would prevent the “one-man show” that the Indian system has evolved into. The proponents of this line of thought also cite the United States' (relative) political stability as one of the key reasons to support their argument. The proposal challenges the Indian Constitution’s “Basic structure doctrine” decided by the Supreme Court in the Kesavananda Bharathi case. However, this requires further examination: a Presidential form of government might fix some of India’s political gridlock, but it may also open Pandora’s Box, releasing a whole wake of issues in its place. This includes a politically biased Supreme Court and horse-trading of MPs on a scale unheard in Indian politics.
