The ban on blogger has been lifted. I am glad.
But , I am digressing. This is not what I wanted to post about.
What I wanted to post about was an article I read in the newspaper recently. A woman won a huge lottery ( worth 1,00,000 U.S $ or more ) … and when asked what she wanted to do with the money, she said she wanted to buy a plot of land on the moon.
Crazy stupid senseless woman !
Is there no limit to greed ? We have succeeded in destroying the earth. Do we really need to look at the moon next ?
This is aptly shown in an awesome animated video here : http://nabeelzeeshan.blogspot.com/2006/05/earth.html
I seriously wish that woman goes to hell before she can get her plot of land on the moon. First the moon, then what ? the entire solar system ?????
By the way , the destruction of our earth is much closer than I thought. There’s a plot of land opposite my office which was abundant in trees. The area is actually a marsh land , and is covered with trees. A company is planning to erect 4 buildings there. This is bad in itself. But what is worse is that they are burying the trees alive (i.e. they are leveling the land with truck loads of earth and sand , without cutting down the trees ) . One reason why this could be so is because by just submerging, the company saves a lot on labour. Moreover, there is a rule that wood when cut should be disposed off carefully (this piece of info is courtesy my colleague )
I know the company responsible for this , but am really ashamed to reveal the name of the company.
Am putting up some photos ( taken by my colleague) of the destruction :
I have resampled and reduced the size of the photo. Hence , the actual extent of the destruction is lost. The pic on the left shows a tree being covered by earth. It is lying horizontally on the surface.
The photo below shows the levelling. A tree has been flattened , and the mud piled on the tree is being levelled.
