Someone forward this to me today.


This pic was probably taken 2 years back but this still shows, how fast we have grown the last few decades.

Seeing this, I can’t help but thinking about the artics and the polar bears. Why did I say that? Well, with the advancement of the technology and the evergrowing number of people in the world, demands for these type of “thing” is increasing day by day and the law of supply and demand state that, with the increase of demand, there will be increase of supply and increase of supply means increase in resources which equals to a lot and a lot of wastage!!

Don’t get me wrong here. I’m not saying that technology is all THAT bad. Our life have been getting better, mortality rate have decreased and quality have improved since the late 50’s and this is all thanks to technology and the people behinds it. And thanks to technology also, researches in environmental field and sustainability have been kicked up a notch.

Moms always said, “If you over eat, you will get stomachache” and how true is that! Too much of something never good for you. While technology does help us a lot in improving our quality of life, but as said earlier, too much of something never is good for you.
