It's just Nine, not even Ten...!

I received a mail from one of my friends in which I saw these contents which reiterate the world how a brave and prestigious society should react and overcome a disastrous situation of all time. Yes, it's the Japanese. They displayed the entire human race their noble attributes while disastrous Tsunami, Earthquake and aftermath agony engulfed, attacked and devastated their soil brutally.

 I like to share with you,Guys...just to salute and bow to the people of Japan for their possession of esteemed qualities like these. The contents go like this....

Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No sensationalizing. Only calm reportage.

When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.

I pray God to save these people from continuous natural disasters which keep them thrashing to lead a hell like life in Earth. Their behaviors at a crisis like this send a message across all over the World, how a matured community will face and reflect in a situation like this. I feel everything except one in the above qualities are much for humans to follow.  Yes, I disagree with item number one above as it depends on individual’s strength and ability to win over a grief situation. I didn't find anything wrong in expressing one’s feelings when it comes to human loss. If one thinks it’s okay to show happiness uncontrollably, what is the problem in expressing grieves?

"Feelings" are not the things which can always be kept under control like regulating the speed of a ceiling fan by a mechanical means. It’s to be felt…that too deeply to its maximum extent. These are the things gifted by God only to the human society…to cry and laugh…! To express one’s state of mind. These are all natural reactions of human beings. It seems the human society has not realized the evil effects caused out of controlling the order of Nature. These feelings distinguish humans from the rests. They reflect the life and love of the people. They are not like unconquerable things such as Birth and Death, they are the things which are beyond the arguments of conquering or defeating. That's why they are termed as "Feelings". We can’t behave like a ROBOT. And, We shouldn't. They display the lifestyle of a Soil, a Society.

India believes in it. Very strongly indeed. That’s why India still has its life and soul undisturbed. We just live what we are…! We just go by our giving significance to the beloved ones, whether its birth of a child on this soil or a sudden loss of a dear and near. We show our feelings extraordinarily...! That love can’t be stopped just to show the world that we are decent…! And, it shouldn't be meant like that, of course.  If one argues that it can be stopped and controlled, then its inevitable to doubt his/her love.

Anyways, rest of the things (from 2 to 10) which have nothing to deal with the way we express our love and affection over the loss of a beloved soul, are the utmost characteristics for the human society to possess. "The deeds"-every part of this world to follow. All we have to adapt ourselves those qualities to lead a meaningful life. Those qualities of the Japanese teach us-"The world” how we have to be well dignified, truthful and conscientious in our daily life.

America- "Nuclearizing the World...?"

Undoubtedly, this world owes a lot to US which has been contributing outstandingly in uplifting the life of human society to next levels.  Large scale of immigration from different parts of the world intensifies the fact “US, A dream land to live in”.  People living in this country enjoy the best and comfort lifestyle than those living in any other parts of this world. It’s the nation which has been pioneering in Scientific Innovations and Research Developments for centuries now. It’s a country which has never shown shyness over importing the talents. It only bothers how and where it can get the best. Once found, will be wiped and stored in its Locket as precious assets.  The only country which developed a perfectly structured tactics to download the talents from all across the world and has been ripening the best benefit out of it is none other than “America”. This is one of the most significant factors for its unimaginable advancement in “Science and Technology” where others failed miserably. One can observe this from its history which explains how the migrants helped in enhancing the “Industrialization and Urbanization” that took place in the 19th century which is designated as the starting point of the developed America what we are seeing now. Migrants include the greatest scientists and inventors the world ever witnessed like “Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Wright Brothers, Henry Ford and Einstein” whose ancestral soil were different. Why US companies have their seats reserved for Indian Software Engineers? Why NASA has that much of jaw dropping percentile of Indian Scientists?  Why brightest, dynamic brains of IITs are being given a Red Carpet reception by its esteemed institutions? All of these “Whys” have only one answer none other than its admiration and nature of nurturing the talents.

As world’s leading Economic and Political power it has the capacity to align the world behind it. The unresolved issues looming the globe will be brought before it either by itself in most of the cases or by the rest in few. The world at last will surrender before America when all the doors are got blocked for them. It was very much visible recently when Japan’s dangerous leakage of nuclear radiations from its “Fukishima” plant horrifying the entire world. While continuing all utmost efforts to quench the Reactors, the Japanese government also thought of a conclusion for asking the direct support from US to prevent the leakage of radiations. That’s a different issue later Japan receded from its decision of getting America near its nuclear Plant.  This reliability on it was made by its development in Political, Economical and Technological forums in few centuries. World has now the perception that it can give a solution for which others thrived and failed to achieve. The bad part of this truth is that no other nation attempts to attain the same quality ever since America has started just boasting itself as the savior of the world.

But possession of all these qualities don’t lift and gift this country the supreme authority to deal with the world by anointing itself as a “Prerogative”.  All these shouldn’t mean this as a nation which is provided with the license to do anything according to its opinions and desires. The way it behaves by poking its nose in other territories pushes one sometimes to think in this perspective. Those who have been watching this nation at least for more than a decade can get a clue how and what this nation has been trying to show the world by its behaviors. It always emphasizes that it has all its rights to taste others cup of tea. Whether it’s act of boosting the tensions between India & Pakistan by supporting Pakistan indirectly or willing to uproot Tehran’s nuclear thirsts; or its act of aiding South Korea to showcase its strength to the North Korea or siding Israel on Palestine dispute, everywhere it has its footprints featured.  The negative outcomes of its acts have already displayed in front of the world by the time. "Iraq and Afghan's instability, Tehran’s dream on becoming a nuclear armed state and the emergence of North Korea as a state owning nuclear weapons" can be said as few best examples of the evil effects coming out US behaviors.

One more scapegoat almost was acquired by this superpower to establish and display its strength to the world…! Yet another flawlessly executed plot targeted on Oil resources…! On hearing the news waved on air “US leads the war against the dictator of Libya”, it appeared and reverberated like this on the minds of people who termed “Gulf War and Invasion of Iraq on 2003” by US as “Oil Imperialism”.  The intensive civil resistance later turned into a revolution which ousted its longtime ruler in Tunisia ignited the chain of unrest in North Africa and Middle East. Protests and demonstrations started to spread to the neighboring nations like Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Yemen etc. against their respective ruling statesmen. In Libya, the development of civil unrest against corruptions, human rights violations turned into armed conflicts when the dictator confronted the resistances and protesters by his military force.  Within 48 hours of UN Security Council passing the resolution to impose forcible No-Fly zone over Benghazi”, France started attacks on the "Libyan government armours" which was later joined by Britain and US. Asian giants China and India, Russia opposed this imposition and condemned the strikes by International forces. Despite few countries opposing this act firmly, majority of nations supported and welcomed this intervention on oil rich Libya stating “An operation to protect the civilians from Gadafi’s tyranny”. European countries are very much ready to take seats in the second row by giving priority to US and its decisions. Above all the present status of “Great Britain” once ruled the world is so mocking.  US has already pulled the trigger by stimulating the “Middle East Nations” to think of becoming nuclear armed states to silence the “Pentagon”. Ultimately it looks US knowingly is going to nuclearize the entire world by its dangerous moves. 

Unevenness among the people on what they ‘think and like’, ‘believe and follow’ have been redrawing the boundaries of the Globe whenever they attempted to trespass the threshold…! Differences and disagreements which are caused out of Imbalances like the ‘World Wars’ have been keeping the population of various ethnic groups as a dynamic configuration in the world…!  Overpowering of weaker territories by dominant countries and empires on Political, Economical, Social and Cultural grounds have reshaped the world map several times.  It looks the human society haven’t still realized the evils and damages it underwent on the ground of ethnic Superior-Inferior wars and conflicts. It seems the world didn't understand yet properly the impact of inscription of words like ‘Imperialism’, ‘Colonialism’ and ‘Capitalism’ by its blunders on the pages of its history which divided the human race permanently. From the moves of few developed nations and almost all developing countries, it appears the world map is going to get its boundaries redrawn again. “United States of America”, unfortunately to play a major role in orientating the Globe in that direction.  

Whatever may be its impression across globe is…! Irrespective of world’s liking or disliking of its moves….! Like the century which just passed us away, this century will also going to be an American century…! One can’t ignore the fact that a country which is going to influence the ‘Globe’ or which will vibrate the 'Earth' by it’s every single action and reaction is none other than "America".
