yesterday’s earth quake in Kashmir once again proved how puny our advances our in comparison to nature’s fury. All that a couple of plates under did was adjust themselves and boom…. 18.000 peoople dead and still counting.
An neither the quake nor the Tsunami recognised human imposed borders and boundaries. Nor did they ask about religion or ethnicity. They just swept past leaving devestation in their wake.
I hope that we and our neighbours understand and appreciate the fragility of life and the ecosystem and come to terms with it and move on. And coexist in relative peace.
