Love & Survival

Love & Survival

The people
whom you
loved

With all
your innocence

Are now
under the
whip

Of what
they call
“Spartacus”

Playin the
game

Of sellin
& buyin
you

You search
and sweat

To find
your hole

And the
safety

Of those
around you

Strugglin &
frettin

About the
long gone
peace

And then
you wonder

What have
thee done

To have
lost

The Love
of your
dear ones

The Story of Money Lenders and Banks

March 16, 2012

The Story of Money Lenders and Banks

Money Lenders like Old Banias, Marwari’s lend money and when you can’t pay, they usually try to ask some of your personal belongings: Women, Something you like or so on.

Banks lend money and when you can’t pay, usually put you to jail. They confiscate your property and throw all the people who are dependent out with a begging bowl. Most of the time, they die or end up in prostitution centers or so on.

What would you prefer when you ask for a loan from someone? Money-Lenders or Banks? Looks the same to me although they adopt a different approach they adopt in helping and fleecing you.

Poverty & Quality

March 12, 2012

Poverty & Quality

What can remove Poverty more effectively? Is it “Quality” or “Quantity”?

There is Quality way mostly of European Powers and Israel, where they produce very high quality goods which is effective for everyone. It last very long and you hardly need a new good for a long time.

Then there is Quantity way mostly of Asia (India) and Africa, where they produce very high quantity goods which is sufficient for everyone but does not last for long and hence has to be replaced in regular intervals. It might create environment waste and hence be non productive to the country in the long run.

Quality can build infrastructure, whereas Quantity can help individually. Quality makes the masses free of their daily chores, but it also makes the environment automatic. Quantity makes the masses dependent on someone higher up for their daily chores.

However the problem is of the huge population of World at 7 Billion, which can no longer support poor quality goods. Hence Quality is the only way to remove poverty which America and China are implementing to remove the masses out of poverty.

Africa & Poverty

February 10, 2012

Africa & Poverty

Africans are squeezed between Nature, Politicians and Foreign Rule struggling for poverty and illness, surviving on day-to-day survival. The Nature is dwindling fast around the World and in Africa, which will create the problem for their daily harvest and hence survival.

The politicians will over time either stay of the same quality or become worse hence most of the power going to business. If the businessman are with good ethics, then they would bring prosperity to Africa or they would enslave them further like what has happened to “The British Empire & The Big Machine“.

Hence Africans are in a pretty tight situation with no one to trust and the Nature dwindling very fast. Their only choice is to innovate (Silicon Valley). No one’s ever gonna come and help them, ever. Not even another Che Guevara.

The Case of Continents and Countries in the South for Survival and Existence: Part II

February 9, 2012

The Case of Continents and Countries in the South for Survival and Existence: Part II

This is in the continuation in the series of “The Case of Continents and Countries in the South for Survival and Existence: Par I“. It attempts to dwell on the current state of the South countries in much more detail and perhaps find the root causes and solution for each of them.

India

India had to liberalize in 1991 due to its economy going bust as the population far exceeded the domestic gross product. The Socialist ideas of 1947 could no longer sustain India’s population, its survival and its future. Now the Nature cannot sustain us and the West is bound by Nature too. So there is no other way but to innovate. We also face the reality of Machine outpacing humans and replacing us in the future all together leading to our extinction. In fact it is happening now in India & China.

China

China liberalized much earlier in 1978 with a land much bigger than India and the same size of population. It had plenty of natural resources and now half of its population is out of poverty. However in 2011, there are too at a crossroad like India for innovation, the Big Machine of the West and Nature.

Africa

Africa was mostly under civil strife and under the domination of West. It has the same size of population of that of India and China, but there is still much strife due to autocratic rule. Currently it is at where India was at 1991. It can no longer ignore the needs of the common man, the Big Machine and off course the diminishing Natural Resources.

To summarize, the three countries have lost the race for survival in the face of “The Big Machine and the Advance of West” as of 2000. The more we delay our risk to innovate, the more we continue to become slaves of machines and perhaps become extinct altogether. We three countries (India, China and Africa) are 3rd world countries and therefore need to regain our right to stand in this World. With honour and perhaps a lot of food and fun.

The Case of Continents and Countries in the South for Survival and Existence

February 8, 2012

The Case of Continents and Countries in the South (India, China, South America & Africa) for Survival and Existence

The World currently consists of the East Countries and the West countries. Off course they meet at several points but they are also involved in a stiff fight for Survival, Nature and perhaps World Domination.

The East adopted the mass way. Expanding and spreading its population all across the lands within its reach. It grew rich due to the natural resources. But soon its population outstripped has the natural resources.

Whereas the West thought for quality instead of quantity. They rapidly advanced and brought huge material wealth to themselves and the World. They reached the Universe outside and the smallest matter one can think and observe. They brought advancement in us and the machine around.

The East is now trying to think out of survival and perhaps for innovation and development. Whereas the West is looking for markets and natural resources. On one hand there are the have’s not (poor across the South) who are fighting for survival and on the other hand the big machine in the West.

They are now increasingly meeting and creating an integrated World with common problems. Borders across countries and continents will soon disappear and everyone will have to think about the World and Universe as their own citizens, aliens & matter irrespective of race, religion or caste.

The Great Divide of Have’s & Have’s Not (One flew over the Cuckoo Nest)

February 7, 2012

The Great Divide: Have’s & Have’s Not (One flew over the Cuckoo Nest)

The Have’s and Have’s Not are divided by great divide. A divide mostly of greed for money and power.

There are two Worlds on Earth. One with ample poverty where people die in thousands together due to lack of hope and food. The media are hardly connected to this area and whatever news it brings to the other side is filtered by corruption and bureaucracy.

The other is with flush with richness: food, shelter, luxuries, vacation. And might not have the inclination for serving and helping the poor.

Also there are middlemen who do not allow people to cross from one area to another made up of politicians, businessman and religious honchos. We need a lot of people who have the guts to cross over the line of “The Have’s & Have’s Not” for humanity.

India, World & The Villages (Poor People)

November 17, 2011

India, World & The Villages (Poor People)

This is about India, its villages, its poor and her relationship with the World. It is also a reflection on how the World Political infrastructure operates. Keep the uneducated and impoverished unknown about the rich areas (and how to get rich) and make them to vote for them in large quantity for very less money. Milk the rich and give them unfettered business but zero chance for any political interference (Take maximum money from them).

This keeps the rich as rich and the poor as poor. Technology or not. So even after the five centuries of Industrial Revolution
out of seven billion from a paltry 100 million (Say 10 million were absolute poor -10%), 3.5 billion continue to live in absolute poverty (Even in the USA with Africa and India being the poorest) and another 2 billion just above poverty line (50% in absolute poverty and 15% just above poverty line). The gap between the rich and the poor is increasing year after year (10% to 60% increase in world population in poverty)

Btw, our environment is strangling and is crying for an Emergency improvement. So have we really improved in Civilization or poverty? In numbers yes as the population increases, but in percentage (real) its dismayal.

What are we gonna do? Any ideas?

The Poor World and their Work

November 12, 2011

How the Poor World Works: the Details

The Poor take work from developed countries like USA, Europe, Japan and distribute it among themselves. These are mostly mechanical or labor work without any innovation. Mostly for survival and shelter.

Africa, South America does the errands of USA, Europe (Body Work)

China does the errands of USA, Japan , Europe (Mechanical Work)

India & other Asian Countries do the errands of USA, Europe (Software) and Arabic Countries (Body Work)
