To start with a quote, by Douglas Adams “The story so far: In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Apparently and unfortunately, yeah!, we reside in a spherical body that looks like the color of CopperSulphate from distant universe, and utter bullshit while we are standing on it. Its nothing special, nor the term “Cool” can be attributed to it, but its just that there are certain Carbon Based life forms living here, jumping here, shitting here, fucking here, killing each other and just dying for money. Oopsie, that was Us. I guess.
So in this whole universe, or a black colored infinite Ad infinitum, their exists this very planet. The people residing here call it as the third most nearest planet to the sun, and are incredibly happy due to it, although the reason still remains unknown. Few answer it, as it provides light to the people, helps the Plants to make their own food, so that animals can eat them, and then the Humans can eat the both and thus continue the Food Chain, maintain the ecological equilibrium and ofcourse, superiority. The rest few are happy because its third most, and not the first most, and it has been found that Mercury has been absolutely jealous of Earth, so an element named the same, automatically spheres up on the Earth’s surface. Now that I have already made you think weird, and completely messed with your already messed up mind, lets come to the topic.
Although the humans never thought of the fact, why they were left on this very planet, far away even from the Idea that any other living things exist anywhere in the galaxy, they are cheerful, they don’t care. They are happy of the fact that they don’t have to share the available meager resources with the aliens. But then someday something happened. After thousands of years of genetic evolution, the peeps here finally found that they are actually screwing themselves. They polluted the Earth, harnessed every resource that’s available here, used Diamonds to cut every other Diamond that was present, and ultimately, they came up with another new drastic, terrible and pathetic Idea, “Let’s Save Earth”. Oh, Wait a minute, how the heck can we save the Earth, we should be saving ourselves, having known what happened to the Dinosaurs. If you don’t know what really happened to them, they were wiped out, cut, slashed, roasted in lava, cleaned by extremely high pitched bass produced due to meteors/asteroids hitting the Earth’s surface etc. Maybe history will repeat itself in near future.
I always wondered about the mere fact on “Saving the Earth”, or if it is just the Optimistic version of “Let’s save Us from the Wrath of Earth”, We know how the evolution generally goes on. An existing species gets completely wiped out, a new species gets itself in. We know we are going to get wiped out, and nobody cares about the nature. Everybody says that somebody will care for the nature, somebody says that it can be anybody, and anybody knows it will be nobody. Objective completed. We are just pretending that we are doing what we should be. Nobody cares about anything, neither the celebrities, nor that smiling hypocrite popularity hungry bastard Minister who touches the shovel first time in his life on “Environment Day”. Earth is your mother, So please continue screwing your mother. Lets save Earth, its not Uranus.
Recently while appearing my AIEEE on an engineering college, I saw a guy wearing a T-Shirt with something written on it. Being a T-Shirt reading fanatic, I glimpsed on it. It was written “Black is the new Green”, I thought for a while, related the Black with the Universe and smiled.
