Vegetarianism and Convenience Management

I think the core of the message in my previous post on vegetarianism is wrongly understood. I have rather highlighted the positives of each food in a particular setting.

The message was: Not to negatively brand those who eat non-vegetarian food.

It is an inter-connected world out there. During harvest humans cut the plants, kill them and feed(rather dispose) the cattle. As such cattle act as garbage dump and decomposition agent. For our selfish means we blame cattle. Convenience Management.

Animals rather do favour to the ecosystem through grazing. They graze on unwanted plants and in turn reduce the growth/spread of plant eating insects and its related troubles. We set-up big chemical plants and use chemicals to nourish and sustain the vegetation, so that we can feed on them. Convenience Management.

Scope of Pain: We need to be in other’s shoes to feel it. Convenience Management.

Herbivore, Carnivore, etc: We need to balance the ecosystem the natural way by co-existence.

Philosophy: Subjective. One of my earlier post is pasted below:
Definition of Marriage in a dictionary is a legal union between a man and a woman. Today a marriage can be between same sexes (No slight intended). Tomorrow it could be between different species??? If such a scene becomes a reality, how do we define DEFINITION. Convenience Management.

Can the people living in snow covered areas imagine about farming. I think natives of ice world (including Eskimos) cannot rely on vegetarian food. Imagine a water/ice covered world. Will you starve to death? Naturally we start looking for available food. Convenience Management.

Apropos, this world revolves around Convenience Management. What is bad to someone in a particular situation is good to some other in a different situation. Hence let us not negatively brand others for our convenience.

Every food has its advantage in a particular setting.

Future of Marriage

Recent News:
# Father rapes daughter
# Millions of babies born to single mothers (outside marriage)
# 37-year-old woman charged with child molestation after marrying her son's 15-year-old friend

Evolution revisited…Stone-age recreated…Nature copied !!

Does news like the above give indication of changing preferences. One-off cases can be ignored. However these days quite often we come across such news.

Considering this trend, feel the institution of marriage would lose its meaning and will be history one day !!

Culture Degradation !


Can we give credit to the British (catalyst) for the following:

# A nation of skilled professionals (including IT) who are hired across the world for their 'English' language skills
# Among the largest surface transport network (rail/road) in the world
# Waning of Sati, Child Marriage...
# A unified nation called INDIA. (we may have moved towards Republic(s) of Pandiya, Chola, Chera, Mysore, Deccan, Maratha, Gwalior, Udaipur, Nalanda, Patiala - few more additions to the UN list of world countries)

Culture/Heritage Degradation: As long as humans have evolving brain, you cannot stop 'change' from happening. If not today, change is bound to happen tomorrow. If by restrictive activities we can enforce a 'perceived' good practice, then we would have stopped crime long back. I suppose world over Religion and Police are among the largest enforcing/recruiting agents. What is considered good today was bad yesterday. My blog on Definition gives some input on the same. If we feel 'change' can be stopped, slowed-down or reversed, then we need to first find ways to change the brain dynamics to 'static' state from the 'dynamic/evolving' state. Without which you cannot stop human from evolving from stone-age to modern-age and beyond. At each age, human will say "what was believed/practiced earlier could have been done better".

Did British teach Indians the caste system? Why we are not able to come out of it? Because religion/caste fit into our conveniences...

By highlighting the positives, am not trying to discount the negative acts of British. If their negatives are highlighted often, then we should not shy to highlight the positives. Adversity shows opportunities too. A unified and vibrant INDIA is born. Let us understand that, focus on positives and move forward.

I may be shouted down for the above comments, but we need to accept the fact.

Practice universal brotherhood and live happily...

Subject: Should We not Learn From History

Lord McCauley in his speech of Feb 2,1835, British Parliament:

"I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber,that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem,their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation".

This shows time and again that Our Heritags is Invaluable and priceless.

Un quote: It is always better to be ourself than thinking and acting like someone (people who thinks whatever "West does is the Best")

Are ET’s our Ancestors !

As we try to plant living cells in other planets and experiment their scope in the new environment, highly evolved ET’s from other galaxies might have planted living cells in earth millions of years back !!! Who knows those ET’s may have even mastered ‘controlled’ death.

As we monitor our space exploration, even ET’s may return to see the progress. If this would become reality, welcome them rather than confront them over the skies.

Convergence may solve more mysteries !
