Nature’s fury – and revenge!

with 2 comments

The eruption of the Eyjafjallajoekull volcano in Iceland today and its subsequent result – cancellation of 17,000 flights as volcanic ash drifted towards large parts of Europe – once again bears a message for the westernised, environmentally degrading, globally destructive world.
It seems like Nature is saying: “Don’t mess around with me. I can bring you on your knees any time I want.”

  1. Why “Westernized??”….. Its not east/west/south/north-ernized problem…. its the liberalizm/tolerance-ism etc that have made these cultures “Inhuman”……. ‘easterns’ find an escapism in blamin the west for whatever happens in any part of the world…if our kiddies do the “dont’s” – its westernization – wherein actually its because we didn’t give them our culture – blame it on Lack of Roots – A firmly grounded tree doesn’t fall that easily…. Same thing happned to the western culture… they simply lost the roots… like we r doin now… But Thank God we have west to blame, so we are free of guilt…..

    • You are right. But on hindsight I feel I should have used “modern” instead of “Westernized”.
