Pedd ho gaye kam kyun
Teen hain ye mausam kyun
Chand do kyun nahi Duniya mein hai jung kyun
Behta laal rang kyun
Sarhadein hain kyun har kahin ~ 🌎 #oneplanet
By now everyone knows about the Amazon fires. Hell, by now people even know about the rains.
What I have seen, to my utter disgust but not much surprise, is people reacting hopelessly parochially to even this, all over social media.
Well-meaning people posting on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram, trying to spread awareness, raise concerns, and there comes some troll genius with comments like 'First worry about what is happening in India!',... 'Ha ha no need to go that far, first see near your home'... 'Solve country' s problems first'.....and so on, you get the picture.
There is no question, no room for 'my backyard first' in this situation. If you wait till all your personal problems are solved and dream about leaping into action only afterwards, then you won't have a home, a family, a state or a country left. When a ship starts sinking, you don't try to save your cabin first. That's moronic bullshit. 'Humanism' and 'Nationalism' are so last millennium. Wake up. There is one undivided planet we have. We need to look after it collectively.
And humans are just one part of it. We need to stop making everything just about our species. ~
