Corruption and Irrationality are real threats to Survival
of Humanity. Let us fight against these evils.
With advent of education and knowledge man, in stead of becoming intelligent, has become shrewd, and in stead of pursuing the truth chases benefits. Sacrifice of truth at the altar of benefits has transformed the society into a haven for the corrupt. Our selfishness has made us indifferent towards the sufferings of others, without realizing that we may also have to have taste of our own medicine. We remain indifferent with a feeling that a single person can't change the habits of a whole society. What we forget is that the society is made of many a singles. Contribution of every individual is important. If a person generates a single idea, guess how many ideas can be generated by a group. Let us take up major issues one by one.
Any change in our old conceptions and beliefs is so hard to occur that we see such change as ridiculous. Such was our reaction to Galileo's concept of earth revolving around sun and to Darwin's theory of evolution. So, in stead of rejecting it straight away let us have a look at it too. This system will also have its own flaws. But when no system is free from snags then why not try this one also? .....Read MoreThreats to humanity

In India corruption has spread cancerously in all the nook and corners of Administration. Your complaint to the police, if you are an ordinary citizen, will certainly fetch the attention of the duty officer. But his intention would seldom be of extending you a helping hand. He will see if you possess a quality and capability to oblige him with some gratitude for his endeavors to help you. You should be quite clear in your mind that you would have to pay the price of his endeavors only and not for the end results, and that too at the rates decided by him. This is true in almost all the cases of public services. No sensible person in India is unaware of the severity of this problem, but its degree may vary according to the experience of an individual. I am presenting only that much which has been experienced by me, though it is quite clear in my mind that actual position is much worse than that......Read More

Man made threats are many, like pollution, global warming, depleting natural resources, atomic arms, religious terrorism and many more. But these are basically the parts of two major threats and can be shooed away if the two are tackled properly. These two are 'lack of world order' and 'population explosion'. In fact the threat of population explosion is also a part of lack of world order.
