Let's Return To Mother Nature!


Our beautiful blue planet, Earth, was formed almost four and a half billion years ago and a billion years or so later Life appeared on it. As myriad forms of life evolved, each dependent on the other, our planet was at one time probably the most spectacular part of the Universe.  Then evolved, about 200 thousand years ago, a species called Man. Mother Nature's intentions were certainly good. But this particular species thought otherwise.

He lived the life of a hunter-gatherer for most of his life. Only about 12000 years ago, he decided to grow his own food. And plundered the forests, the erstwhile source of all his food, to make vast, cultivable fields. He domesticated animals, some even bigger than him, to 'help' him. In some parts of the world today, these animals, the livestock, even outnumber man himself! Then he started trading. And expanded the repertoire of tradable commodities, built factories, ever the bigger, all spewing a variety of gases into the atmosphere, choking the earth. And his zest for faster trade and travel brought the cars and the jets that drank all the fuel hidden inside the earth's belly, only to spew more venom onto the atmosphere. As the gases of the livestock and the factories and the cars and the jets enveloped the earth, global temperatures have started rising. Water, the very essence of life, is becoming scarce. With oil wells drying up, food grains are finding their way into fuel tanks, as though feeding the machines is more important and urgent than feeding the mouths. The very foods that he grew (with added fertilizers and pesticides) and then processed to satisfy just the taste buds are proving his nemesis, causing far too many diseases, the so called diseases of civilisation. With food, shelter and trade monopolised by a handful few, poor are becoming poorer and the rich, richer. The pressures of sheer numbers of mankind and his livestock have driven many a species into extinction. These selfish actions of man, driven solely by money and deliberately unmindful of the consequences, are increasingly proving antagonistic to Mother Nature. As the blame game continues,  these are spiralling into a tragedy that is threatening the very existence of life on earth.

It is time we return to Mother Nature..

This website is inspired by the survivors of the devastating tsunami that struck the coasts of the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean on the 26th of December 2004. More than 200000 people died and many man-made structures crumbled without offering any protection to man. On the other, most of the primitive tribes and wild animals managed to escape before the tsunami hit and mangroves and trees protected the coastline and the people who clung on. The message is simple yet clear: Those who did understand nature could save themselves; those who did not, could not.

  • Stop the plunder
  • Bring the jungle to our concrete cities
  • Eat what a hunter gatherer eats
  • All live for one and one lives for all
  • Live and let live all the wonderful life forms on earth
  • But is it possible to undo the devastation?
